When God's Will Isn't Clear

This is a follow up on an earlier post about Piper's:
"When God's will is not clear

Quoting from https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=139989935971 :

When the brilliant ethicist John Kavanaugh went to work for 3 months at “the house of the dying” in Calcutta, he was seeking a clear answer as to how best to spend the rest of his life. On the first morning there he met Mother Teresa. She asked, “And what can I do for you?” Kavanaugh asked her to pray for him. “What do you want me to pray for?” she asked. He voiced the request that he had borne thousands of miles from the United States. “Pray that I have clarity.” She said firmly, “No, I will not do that.” When he asked her why, she said, “Clarity is the last thing you are clinging to and must let go of.” When Kavanaugh commented that she always seemed to have the clarity he longed for, she laughed and said, “I have never had clarity; what I have always had is trust. So I will pray that you will trust God.”


  1. I remember posting the first article on my blog after I read it on ur blog...

    I was reading an article couple of weeks back "From Confusion to Clarity", the author quotes at the end .. "Instead of focusing your prayers exclusively on circumstances, ask God for the Fellowship that strengthens FAITH"... so we can trust in him alone to lead us in the right path.. so true
