The journey ahead

the-long-winding-road-207526

Do not give into fear in the face of the changes and chances of this life. Rather, as they arise, look at them with full trust in God, to whom you belong, who will enable you – through His powerful love – to profit from them. He has guided you thus far in life; so hold fast to His dear hand, and He will lead you safely through every trial. Whenever you cannot stand, he will carry you in his loving arms. Do not be anxious about what may happen tomorrow. The same Eternal Father who takes care of you today will take care of you tomorrow, and every day of your life. He will either shield you from suffering, or give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then, and put aside all useless thoughts, all vain dreads and all anxious imaginations.

–St Francis de Sales

Times of Upheaval

In times of upheaval, a voice from heaven says,
“Be still and know that I am God.”
It doesn’t say, “Be still and know why.”
In a distant day the gradual sacrament
of understanding may be offered to us.

–Ken Gire
