From the first reading in the Liturgy of the Hours we hear the following from St. Paul. It reminds me that I need to be thankful for all that my God sends to me. For it's in these that I grow and am strong. Thank you, my Lord, for loving me enough to send me stress to shape and form me.
"Therefore I am content with weakness, with mistreatment, with distress, with persecutions and difficulties for the sake of Christ; for when I am powerless, it is then that I am strong."
