Quote of the Day

A single "Blessed be God" in a time of adversity is better than six thousand acts of thanksgiving in times of prosperity.

- Blessed John of Avila

You're welcome Jackie! It is often so hard to remember to thank God when he sends us trials and tribulations, but He does so for our own good, as a hidden grace. We must remember to thank Him for that.

that is true. but adversity is still challenging when you're suffering stress.

paramedicgirl said...

Yes, of course it is challenging and stressful; that's why a single thank you to God for sending you these tribulations to increase your humility and perseverance makes you grow tremendously in grace and faith.

you know, i should have posted that every single day I thank Jesus and tell Him that i love Him. i wonder how many people tell Jesus daily that they love Him? how many thank Him?
