Be not afraid

It is so easy to fret, to worry about our finances, our jobs, our health, but then I remember that so many have suffered so much more than I can imagine. Look at our Lord, sinless–a sacrifice for us all–never complained, never felt sorry for himself. When  I find myself feeling frustrated with the way the world is going, the way my life is going, it helps to focus on the words of one of my favorite saints–hope you like it too.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow. The same loving Father who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and everyday. Either he will shield you from suffering or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings.
St. Francis de Sales

One thought on “Be not afraid

  1. Each are given the gift of the day! Tomorrow is not assured us, but if our trust lies in Him who is Faithful forever; tomorrow will never come!”In Him we live and move and have our very being.”
