Peace, one and all…
‘And He is with you wherever you are…’ (Quran 57:4)
Sometimes life leads us down strange paths, and we lose our way, but He is still there with us. Sometimes we react to life’s pressures less well than we might, but He is still there with us. Sometimes we fail and sometimes we err, but He is still there with us. And then, there comes a moment, where our burdens are lifted and we can see the open sky once more. Even if it is only for a moment, it is still a great and merciful thing, it is still a reminder: beyond our man-made hierarchies, beyond the clouds, beyond every limitation of ‘you’ and ‘I’, God’s light is shining, driving the weather of the world onwards to its perfection. He is with us wherever we are, and His light is completing its work within us, and through us and as us. Even though He is the One Above All, His mercy reaches us and refreshes us, heals us and loves us.
Praise be to God, in every condition and state, in every place and time.
