The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too.

The feeling remains that God is on the journey, too.

To have courage for whatever comes in life – everything lies in that.

For prayer is nothing

else than being on terms

of friendship with God.

Let nothing perturb you, nothing frighten you. All things pass. God does not change. Patience achieves everything.”

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith. May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us."

“The closer one approaches to God, the simpler one becomes.”

“Reflect upon the providence and wisdom of God in all created things and praise Him in them all.”

“Truth suffers, but never dies.” In light of everyday trials, and even in light of deep distress, we can find peace in the resiliance of truth and goodness.

"In this distress, — for then I had never had a single vision, — these Thy words alone were enough to remove it, and give me perfect peace: 'Be not afraid, my daughter: it is I; and I will not abandon thee. Fear not.'"

“Pain is never permanent.”

“Christ has no body now, but yours. No hands, no feet on earth, but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks compassion into the world.Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.”

“Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.”

You pay God a compliment by asking great things of Him.”
Sometimes we may feel like we will never see peace in the world. We must persevere in prayer for peace. Nothing is impossible with God.
