Until God ordains otherwise, a man ought to bear patiently whatever he cannot correct in himself and in others. Imitation of Christ by John Kempis


It has been my experience that it is easier to discourage a Christian than to encourage them in their good works.   Why is it the norm to bring peopledown when they are trying to do good.  It may be because they do not know their own worth and how much Jesus loves them.  I have been hurt numerous times by Jealous Christians.  The prayer above is  Saint John Newman, that was obviously, discouraged.  It is hard for me to be positive when hurt but this prayer helped.

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
