Thought of the Day September 29, 2020 Difficulties in life

By 10:10 AM

"We should take as a maxim never to be surprised at current difficulties, no more than at a passing breeze, because with a little patience we shall see them disappear. Time changes everything" (St Vincent de Paul).


Difficulties are part of the human journey. They are the consequences of Original Sin. These are the "thorns and thistles: spoken of after the Fall. They come and go. But what is constant is the fidelity of God.


As God never abandoned fallen humanity after the Fall, so God will not abandon us in the times of difficulties. His love is from age to age, person to person. The difficulties of life may be temptations to turn away from God. But the grace that i offered to us during these trying times is gives to draw us closer to God. Will our difficulties overcome us or will we, with the strength provided by God, turn lemons to lemonade?
