"My son, says our Savior Christ, you should speak thus in everything you desire: Lord, if it be Your will, be it done as I ask, and if it be Your praise, let it be fulfilled in Your name. And if You see that it is good and profitable to me, give me grace to use it to Your honor; if You know it to be hurtful to me, and not profitable to the health of my soul, then take away from me such desire."
"If I [God] am the cause and goal you will be well content, whatever I do with you. But if anything of your own will remains in your heart, it is that which hinders you. Take care, therefore, not to lean too much toward your own desire without My counsel, lest, perhaps, what first pleased you bring you regret and displeasure in the end. Every affection and desire of man's heart that seems good and holy is not at once to be followed, nor is every unattractive affection or desire quickly to be refused."
The Imitation of Christ. Constantly reminds me of the way to contentment! I just wanted to share these two passages.
