"Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards."
It is so difficult some days to know God's will. I sometimes think He's hidden it under so many layers of possibility, so that we have to dig and discard the many options He offers to find what it is He truely wills for us.
Advent is such an ideal time for not knowing; for living the questions without concerning ourselves with answers we haven't been given. It is a time of expectation, of uncertainty, of waiting for what is to come. Perhaps God has hidden His will so that we may fall more completely into the nature of the season and give ourselves over to the story He has written for us.
