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.
