"Go and find Him when your patience and strength run out and you feel alone and helpless. Jesus is waiting for you in the chapel.
"Say to Him, 'Jesus, You know exactly what is going on. You are all I have, and You know all things. Come to my help.'
"And then go, and don't worry about how you are going to manage. That you have told God about it is enough. He has a good memory."
St. Jeanne Jugan
This is exactly what lovely Hannah (prophet Samuel´s mother) did. After crying before the Lord and telling Him about her sorrow, "Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast" (1 Samuel 1:18). Leaving the whole matter in His hands should be enough to give us peace.ReplyDelete
Thank you for reminding us!
I'd actually had something else ready to post, and then felt I should share this today instead (the other will come sometime later). I needed this reminder myself, today...very much...and I need your words: 'Leaving the whole matter in His hands should be enough to give us peace.' Thank you!Delete
