Â A friend sent this quote a few days ago.
“It is best to hope for an experience of life in all its fullness-Â
a life that can embrace both joy and sorrow and still be at peace. Â
Our triumph over sorrow is not that we can avoid it but that we can endure it.
And therein lies our hope;
that in spirit we might become bigger then the problems we face.
Hope lies in having more faith in the power of God to heal us
then in the power of anything to hurt or destroy us.
Our hope in God is not a hope for something to happen in the world
but something to happen in us.
We’re not hoping that this or that will happen
but that we’ll achieve a state of consciousness in which, Â
whatever happens, we will not swerve from love or peace.”
How fitting for me right now.
While it’s quite difficult,
I am at the point in my spiritual journey where I am really working on this in particular:
“We’re not hopingthat this or that will happen but that we’ll achieve a state ofconsciousness in which, whatever happens, we will not swerve from loveor peace.”I think praying for “peace” rather for a specific outcome has really helped me get through the last week.
