As someone who has lost almost, if not all of her inner peace (did I ever have inner peace? lol) because of the absolute stupidty and evil in the world, and not being able to go into a store without getting harassed .. I won’t turn this post into a rant …. I won’t turn this post into a rant… I won’t turn this post into a rant….
Anyway! Please read this article! Its published on OnePeterFive.com and I cannot recommend it enough. Its time I scaled back and disconnected myself from the internet and what little (unbiased) news I listen to and just focused on GOD and rebuilding (ahem… building) up my spiritual life. After all, that is the most important thing in every single one of our lives right now.
Now GO CLICK ON THIS LINK AND READ THE ARTICLE! 🙂
Okay, did you read it yet? You better have…
Here are some of the most inspiring saint quotes to get you (ahem me) started on this “journey”
“Without the burden of afflictions it is impossible to reach the height of grace. The gift of grace increases as the struggle increases.” St. Rose of Lima
“The secret of happiness is to live moment by moment and to thank God for all that He, in His goodness, sends to us day after day.” St. Gianna Molla
“Anxiety is the greatest evil that can befall a soul except sin. God commands you to pray, but He forbids you to worry.” St. Francis de Sales
“And the Lord said to me, ‘My child, you please Me most by suffering. In your physical as well as your mental sufferings, My daughter, do not seek sympathy from creatures. I want the fragrance of your suffering to be pure and unadulterated. I want you to detach yourself, not only from creatures, but also from yourself…The more you will come to love suffering, My daughter, the purer your love for Me will be.’” St. Maria Faustina Kowalska: Divine Mercy in My Soul
“Hold your eyes on God and leave the doing to Him. That is all the doing you have to worry about.” St. Jane Frances de Chantal
Fear not, for I am with thee: turn not aside, for I am thy God: I have strengthened thee, and have helped thee, and the right hand of my just one hath upheld thee. – Isaias 41:10
If armies in camp should stand together against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident. – Psalm 27:3
