As we pray every night, we say to Jesus, “Jesus, what is Your will for me?”
We wait and wait for someone that will make us happy. Have you ever realized that Jesus sometimes allowed you to experience different kinds of paths that made you miserable, alone, and abandoned? He made us knew someone that we thought was our forever. What is the meaning of all these?
In addition with that, there were times that we doubt the most loving presence and will of Jesus for us because of those bitter experiences.
While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
You know dear Christian friend, God will not make us experience anything beyond our capacity as humans.
As St. Paul says:
“No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:!3)
It’s kind of weird to think that He is the one who allows us to experience miserable things, but He is also the one Who will provide all the way out from that difficult situation.
There are times that Jesus wants us to experience bitter things first before we experience sweet things. You know what happened to Him? For the forgiveness of our sins He endured mockery, betrayal, scourging, and death. But what did He do? He endured the pain.
How about us? Jesus wants us to experience suffering before we experience the love of the right one for us.
Endure the pain so we may experience our own Resurrection as He was Ressurected.
