Wisdom from the Holy Fathers

Listen! God Himself says, Call upon Me in the time of trouble; so will I hear thee, and thou shalt praise Me (Ps. 50:15-16, Septuagint). Afflictions confirm us in our faith, and teach us to set worldly glory at nought. Believe firmly that no sufferring or sorrow can visit us –not a hair of our heads can fall—without God intending it. Although we are always inclined to put down our misfortunes to the ill-will or stupidity of men, these are, in reality, only tools in the hand of God. Tools, used to fashion our salvation. Therefore take heart and pray to our Lord Who is always at work for our salvation, using to this end both what we call happiness and what we call sorrow. ~St. Macarius, Elder of Optina
