Quick Bytes #49: Walking Close

We always find that those who walked closest to Christ
were those who had to bear the greatest trials.
                          - St Teresa of Avila

Comforting ... or scary?


  1. To be honest .... VERY scary.

    Can I really bear any trials? The lightest stumble shakes my Faith.

    Thank you, Michael, for a great reflection.

    God bless.

  2. Probably more scary than comforting! You would think it would be the opposite to feel more comforted by walking close to Jesus yet the world is against Him. Makes it all the harder but all the more necessary. God bless!

  3. Scary but comforting at the same time. His yoke (the one that we are joined to Him with)is sweet and His burden light (because He does the heavy lifting.)

  4. Thank you Victor, Noreen, and Barbara for your comments. I found it scary as well ... even though I know it shouldn't be.

    Barbara, you make a great point that our Lord does all the lifting. I will keep that in mind.

    God Bless.
