Deus aderit

Dear Ms Feverfew:

Over the past several years, I have learned three critical life lessons.

First, God is good, even when we don’t want to or simply can’t acknowledge him.  As Erasmus said, “Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit.”  Called or uncalled, God is present.  Not only is He present, but He is so very aware of our sorrows and fears. He alone knows how best to deliver the deep medicine we need to heal, medicine that tastes of grace, love, and mercy. Second, God is crazy about us, even when we don’t feel like we deserve His love and attention. Third, everything will be all right, in the end. It might hurt a lot and there might be a lot of tears, and it might take an entire lifetime, but truly – everything will work together for our good. Even this.

Much love and belief –
