Trinity Sunday while on vacation in the desert

What is the purpose of struggles and difficulties we all go through?

June 2010

My time in the desert on vacation, has been a time to reflect on the past few years of my life. 

 Why the difficulties and struggles. 

 Friday's (6-4-10 ) reading 2 Timothy 3:10-17 has given me somethings to think about as I look back on the struggles of the past few years, being moved from one parish to another. 

 Why should I not expect struggle and persecution? 

 Is it not a part of the Christian way?


Anyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ can expect to be persecuted.


It is through many persecutions that we must enter the Kingdom of God (Acts 14:22)


Help me Lord to see the value of struggles and persecutions that I meet and not to be scandalized by them and to truly know they are the way to the Kingdom.






Good luck with solving this issue. I feel for you. Sorry i can't be of any help. I have the same type of problems frequently!
