How many times have you asked God to take away your worries, whether they be financial, marital, family, or work problems? I know I have. I know many of us have. It’s easy to say to our brothers to believe and trust in God’s plan or that God will never give you something which you can’t handle, until you’re on the other end of the conversation.
In Acts 14:22 the Apostles told the disciples, “It is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.” We will continue to get hit over and over with struggles but know that this world, the earth is not our eternal home. Lets stop worrying about things that don’t provide us with true happiness: the best job, having the perfect marriage, having the best car, the best clothes, among other materialistic things. God deserves our time, our worship, I know that each time we surpass a problem, it gives us an opportunity to become more united in Christ. We learn to trust in Him more, in ways we have never imagined.
Christ never, not once, said life would be easy, yet here we are, remaining faithful to Him. Let us try our best to say, I trust you Lord with my life every single day.
I urge you to pray, meditate on the life of Christ on the rosary, and read scripture every day so that the Holy Spirit can guide you and help you overcome the most difficult situations with Christ by your side.
