Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“God is not a cosmic bellboy.”

– Harry Emerson Fosdick

My understanding of God is within the context of freedom. God is involved in His world but He allows it an autonomy. We are not puppets on a string. When things begin to go wrong, God does not interfere and make changes (usually) without our cooperation. God reveals the extent of His love by allowing us a creative responsibility in our lives.

For years I did not understand this. I thought that if I prayed enough, He would answer all my prayers and come to my rescue. When He didn’t, I grew confused, angry and resentful. What was I doing wrong? Where was God in my life? He didn’t love me. Why wasn’t God my cosmic co-dependent?
Today I love his detachment. Today I grow in my freedom. Today I cooperate with His miracle.
