Thoughtful Thursday: Be at Peace

“The work that Mother Teresa could not get to she did not think twice about, nor should you or I, since God is not asking you to do what He does not give you the time (or health, or resources) to do. So be at peace.”

Fr. Joseph Langford

This comes as a great comfort when I juggle so many deferred tasks due to health, bad habits, and unforeseen circumstances and approach the Big 5-0 with excitement but also a sense of disappointment and frustration, like I have let God down. But then I remember that I often have an unrealistic idea of my limits and therefore my goals and He doesn’t. My wonderful husband also helps me with this when I fall into comparing myself to others. He provides a reality check while encouraging me to follow through with what is realistic and reconsider if I’m pushing myself, as he and I know I’ll inevitably crash and make my health problems worse.

So I take great comfort in the above words and I hope you will too!

    I have taken comfort… and in your own words as well. Just what I needed to hear today!
