A Lenten Thought #9

 

“If there is anywhere on earth a lover of God who is always kept safe, I know nothing of it, for it was not shown to me. But this was shown: that in falling and rising again we are always kept in that same precious love.”

 –Julian of Norwich

Julian gives us courage here to know that God is with us in our failures. It is a great peace to know that our Lord will pick us up when we fail. He uses these failures to strengthen and even sustain us.
