January 8 – Love Bangs the Door
Life with Me is not immunity from difficulties, but peace in difficulties. My guidance is often by shut doors. Love bangs as well as opens.
Joy is the result of faithful trusting acceptance of My Will, when it seems not joyous.
St. Paul, my servant, learnt this lesson of the banged doors when he said “our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” Expect rebuffs until this is learned – it is the only way.
Joy is the daughter of calm.
They that trust in the Lord shall be as mount Zion,
which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. Psalm 125:1
