You would be very ashamed if you knew what the experiences you call setbacks, upheavals, pointless disturbances, and tedious annoyances really are. You would realize that your complaints about them are nothing more nor less than blasphemies — though that never occurs to you. Nothing happens to you except by the will of God, and yet [God’s] beloved children curse it because they do not know it for what it is.
– Jean-Pierre de Caussade
Oh God, open our eyes — my eyes — to those seemingly terrible things that are actually BLESSINGS from Your wise and loving hands. Don’t let us blaspheme You by refusing to see “bad” situations as the avenue You are choosing to show Your glory and love.
