Have patience

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves...
Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now.
Perhaps then, someday far in the future,
you will gradually, without even noticing it,
live your way into the answer.

~Rainer Maria Rilke


Just a little something on the back cover of my Lent devotional.
