Finding God

Having a bad day?  Want to reach out and slap someone?  Take several deep breaths and and consider this from Father Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene, O.C.D., from meditation #298 in Divine Intimacy:

God does not let Himself be found nor does He show Himself in the midst of disturbance and excitement, but only in interior peace and calm.

We often want to change others. What we really need to do is change ourselves, peacefully, calmly, and with the grace of God.

  1. Thanks for this Barb. One of my favorite and often needed prayers is "Lord forgive them, and change me."

  2. I certainly needed this reminder. Actually, I need it tattooed on my forehead so I stop forgetting it!

    God Bless.

  3. Oh so true. We would love to change others but tend to resist change ourselves. Thanks, Barb!
