Blessings in the midst of suffering

Suffering, when accepted with a docile openness, can be powerfully purifying to one’s soul. Unimagined and unexpected blessings arrive with almost a predictable regularity which serves as a sort of signal that you are suffering the way God intends you to undergo this trial or series of trials.

“The trick is not so much to be given what you want, but to want what you are given.”
