All things pass, God alone is constant!

St. Theresa of Avila is quoted as saying "Let nothing disturb thee; Let nothing dismay thee: All things pass; God never changes. Patience attains All that it strives for. He who has God Finds he lacks nothing: God alone suffices." I am always amazed at the lives of the saints because they had to go through several trials and intense difficulties and suffering but they remained faithful and trusted in God's love and mercy.



She is also quoted as saying "To reach something good it is very useful to have gone astray, and thus acquire experience.". These are words of wisdom to live by people! Often times i am stressed and troubled and worried over so many things, some frivolous indeed! I worry about the rain, the heat, how much money i have, how many clothes i have....some are not even problems really! Or sometimes someone is mean to me or things are not going the way they are supposed to at work and this stresses me.



We need to face life's challenges and problems head on. These days parents especially, talk about wanting a better life for their kids or not wanting their children to go through any kind of suffering. Wake up! You cannot control some things in life! Suffering and trials are part of life and everyone has to go through difficult circumstances once in a while. You cannot shelter people from all their problems because that's not how life is! We need to accept the reality that sometimes bad things happen, things you cannot control and things you cannot explain! Your trouble will pass because even trials do not last forever, only God never changes and He will suffice and you will not want for anything! God Bless you all!
