"The riddles of God are more satisfying than the solutions of man," 
G.K. Chesterton

You don't always have to understand.

Leave the best mysteries alone. The moment we think we have fully dissected and rationalized some marvelous thing, that same moment, the wonder is gone. We have to realize that joyful bewilderment is glorious. Embrace it. Embrace the fact that you can't understand. Don't be afraid that the gift is too wonderful to accept. Go ahead and take it, and laugh, because that's what grace is: something irrational, something unsafe. We don't deserve it and we can't understand it. It's too much for us to handle. Our cups overflow. But don't be frightened, or proud, or ashamed. There's a new robe on your shoulders and new shoes on your feet. They're killing the calf that's been fattened just for you. Be thankful, and also be happy, and also stop trying to know why. Because. Because He's good. Because He loves. Because His love is so strong that our weakness doesn't matter anymore.

Because He wants to.

There is no answer more satisfying than that beautiful riddle.
