What you do doesn’t determine who you are. Rather, who you are in Christ determines what you do.

Our job is to love people. When it hurts. When it’s awkward. When it’s uncool and embarrassing. Our job is to stand together, to carry the burdens of one another and to meet each other in our questions.

Don’t let me grow bitter, I pray,
Give me strength to carry on my way,
I’m leaning on You like a wooden cane,
Well, I’m walkin through; I’m walkin through the valley of the pain.
I’m believing there’s a reason for this trial,
This too shall pass in a little while,
Lord have mercy if I complain,
Paint me in a river of my tears,
Whisper hope and truth - courage in my ears.

Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

God wishes to test you like gold in the furnace. The dross is consumed by the fire, but the pure gold remains and its value increases.

One must not think that a person who is suffering is not praying. He is offering up his sufferings to God, and many a time he is praying much more truly than one who goes away by himself and meditates his head off, and, if he has squeezed out a few tears, thinks that is prayer.”

"Suffering is a great favor. Remember that everything soon comes to an end … and take courage. Think of how our gain is eternal.
Blessed be He, Who came into the world for no other purpose than to suffer.

St. Teresa of Avila (via catholicsoul)
