My Ways are Not Your Ways

Renee and I were FB friends and wrote to each other privately a lot since 2012 about faith and how we live or don’t live it in love toward one another.  I am Catholic and although we have different faiths, she was always kind, interested and respectful of mine.  Here is part of the last private post she wrote to me:

“One of the best things I learned from Catholicism is that we don’t have to understand everything. We can’t understand everything. It is okay to say “It’s a mystery.” What comfort. It’s a mystery. God can figure this or that out. I don’t have to. All I have to do is operate on the revelation that’s been given to me….

…“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
