A meditation on suffering
The radical and complete surrender of your will to Christ – Knowing that He is in charge.
Instead of suffering because things are not the way you want them, suffer united with Christ knowing that He will make all things right in accord with His Will. Love His Will, not yours. Make His Will first, not yours. No one ever suffered as much as He, to give freedom to us all to love and obey Him, or to reject Him. Embrace your daily cross because that is where He is to accompany you.
And follow the admonition of St Theresa of Avila, echoing the words of St Augustine;
Work as though everything depends on you, pray as though everything depends on God.
