I feel like God loves me.... but He also “punishes” me ...sometimes, I feel it’s too harsh.... but I probably wouldn’t learn it any other way.... sigh

Teaches a lesson... and it’s like “ouch”

"God did not bring you into the world because He had any need of you, useless as you are; but solely that He might show forth His Goodness in you, giving you His Grace and Glory. And to this end He gave you understanding that you might know Him, memory that you might think of Him, a will that you might love Him, imagination that you might realise His mercies, sight that you might behold the marvels of His works, speech that you might praise Him, and so on with all your other faculties." Introduction to the Devout Life Saint Francis de Sales

"The Lord disciplines those whom he loves, and chastises every child whom he accepts.” Hebrews 12:6

“Nothing great is ever achieved without much enduring.” Saint Catherine of Siena
This is true even in worldly things, and much more so when we seek sanctity, we can't have things handed over to us.
If you seek good goals and objectives for your life, God will help you, but you'll have to allow Him to work through you.


“Man cannot remake himself without suffering, for he is both the marble and the sculptor” Alexis Carrel
