Proper 13 – Year A (Genesis 32.22-31)

Sometimes, this book is so frustrating!
What book is that?
The Bible.
The Bible?
Yes!
Sometimes I read it
and it makes so much sense.
Sometimes I read it
and I struggle to understand.
Sometimes,
it feels like wrestling with God.

Exactly!
Instead of answers I find more questions.
What am I supposed to do?
Perhaps,
instead of seeking understanding,
we need to learn from the struggle.

So, all of my struggling to understand,
is important!
Perhaps,
in our wrestling with God,
we worship God.
Perhaps, like Israel,
in our worship and our wrestling,
we see God’s face.
