Asking, seeking, knocking

Call for help might mean setting aside  our own solutions

by Sister Agnes Fischer

Whoever asks, receives. Whoever seeks, finds. To whomever knocks, the door is opened.

Ask and it will be given:

  • Maybe that we ask is not good for us; for which parents would give their children something that would harm them? In that event would we be willing, without bitterness or resentment, to not receive that which we want?

Seek and you will find:

  • We might have to stop seeking, for example a cure for some illness or recovery of a financial loss, and instead seek the resignation to endure it and maybe learn from it.

Knock and it will be opened:

  • Maybe it’s the same door on which we have been knocking for a while. Or maybe it’s a door that we never even suspected existed behind which may be a whole new life possibility.

How open are we to the response God has in store for us?

Aggie, I really appreciate your reflections. They are so practical - this time the meaning of "ask, seek, knock". Yes, let's be open to what God has in store for us.

I love your last question! And I would add; How open can I let myself be to know a new door has opened.
