A Lenten Thought #6

“The truth that many people never understand, until it is too late, is that the more you try to avoid suffering the more you suffer because smaller and more insignificant things begin to torture you in proportion to your fear of being hurt”

Thomas Merton

Many of the problems we face each day are the result of preconceived notions of what we deserve. The challenge for today is to live out the day as though God wants the very best for us. I know that he does.
