A beautiful secret in the Hand of God

We all have hidden interior lives and my belief is:
Each and every one of us is a beautiful secret in the Hand of God. No one is excluded, for God created man in his own image. If we could see this in one another we would have the greatest respect for all human beings no matter how great or small. Everyone matters. We live in a society where people have become disposable and many are thought to be a burden. God does not see anyone this way. We are all loved and every single one of us was created for a specific purpose.

Over 2,000 years ago a young Jewish woman, a nobody in the eyes of the world, gave her "yes" to God ...and changed the course of history forever. She was a beautiful secret in the Hand of God.  And so are we - in each his own way.  May God whisper this truth in every ear.

Everyone matters.


  1. Mary,
    This is a beautiful way to think of all souls.Thank you for sharing this.

  2. Karin,
    It just strikes me as so very true. We can see this incredible beauty in others if we stop to look. Maybe that's what I should have titled this post - Stop and look at one another. Which gives me an idea :)

  3. Mary, I love reading what you have to share. Again, such an encouraging post. To know that God created me specifically and that I have potential. Blessings to you.

  4. Thank you Mary for the beauty of this vision of the human calling :)

  5. "A beautiful secret in the hand of God"-how poetically lovely! My spiritual director has been telling me about the joys of being a "nobody". Now you've given me another perspective and I love it!
