Thought of the Day July 3, 2020 God alone suffices

By 9:54 AM

We end our reflection on the virtue of patience with a quote from St. Therese of Avila:
Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing;
God only is changeless.
Patience gains all things.
Who has God wants nothing.
God alone suffices.

Impatience focuses on our wants; patience focuses on what does God want for us. Impatience focuses on immediate self-gratification. Patience waits upon the Lord. The more we are in relationship with God, the more we will grow in patience with ourselves and others. That patience will bear the fruit of love.
