…nothing happens in this world but by the order of God, or at least by His divine permission. All He wills or permits turns infallibly to the advantage of submissive and resigned souls. Even that which upsets our spiritual plans turns into something which is better for us. (Fr. Jean-Pierre De Caussade)
If I really believed this…
…I’d complain less about my circumstances
…I wouldn’t worry nearly as much about what comes next in life
….I’d spend less time placing hope in my idols and illusions and more time resting in the peace that comes with trusting our sovereign and holy God
…I’d trust that He really is working all things together for my eternal good and His eternal glory
Once again I pray… Lord I believe, now help me in my unbelief.
