Frustration

How do you find God in those moments when frustration and stress overwhelm you? It is easy to sing God’s praises when all is going well and everything is joyful but what about when you struggle to see that God that is there? I think about Mother Theresa and how she struggled to feel God sometimes. People were stunned. Teresa of Avila understood why God had few friends. People chuckle at her honesty. Both women though were deeply committed to the relationship. They never stopped serving, even when they did not understand the outcome. What keeps you on the path during the rough times?

Peace,

About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
