Today's a good day to do a little quiz. I decided to find outwhat book of the bible I was and was not surprised when my result came out thus:
YOU ARE THE BOOK OF JOB
Immovable even in the midst of trials, you never give up or give in!
You are viewed by others as stalwart and tough, inclined to being a little egotistical at times, but they admire your confidence and tenacity!
Mmmh, it still marvels me how accurate these quizzes can be. Egotistical????!!!!...dunno about that part.
My approach to trials has always been that they are there to strengthen me. In the lives ofthe countless number of Saints who walked this earth like Mother Theresa of Calcutta, St. Padre Pio, St. Elizabeth Ann-Seton just to mention a few; suffering and trials were always a source of endless strength to them and they embraced it with so much love and resignation.
The greatest example is the life of our Lord Jesus Christ, who walked this earth in the midst of trials and endless suffering. When things happen that I do not understand I always say "Thank you, Jesus".
HOW DO YOU APPROACH THE TRIALS THAT MAY CROP UP IN YOUR LIFE FROM TIME TO TIME?
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THEM?
May we learn to embrace the trials that come to us with love knowing that our Lord is ever closer to us at such times.
