I was reading my daily "lessons" and came across this segment...seems very appropriate in light of this past few days post-election woes. However, this idea is at the very root of "following Christ," and as such, offers us all a perspective realignment for even daily struggles. Hope this speaks to someone out there, and please share your ideas/experiences!
"Wretched art thou, wheresoever thou be and whithersoever thou turn thee, unless thou turn thyself unto God. Why art thou troubled that things go not with thee as thou wishest and desirest? Who is there that hath all things according to his will? Neither I, nor thou, nor any man upon earth. There is no man in the world without some trouble or affliction, be he King or Pope. Who, then, is the best off? truly he that is able to suffer something for the love of God." -Thomas A Kempis
