Daily Thought For February 3, 2015

When Life Gets Tough—Wait For The Lord

When the grace of God comes to a man he can do all things, but when it leaves him he becomes poor and weak, abandoned, as it were, to affliction. Yet, in this condition he should not become dejected or despair. On the contrary, he should calmly await the will of God and bear whatever befalls him in praise of Jesus Christ, for after winter comes summer, after night, the day, and after the storm, a great calm.

from The Imitation of Christ by Thomas Á Kempis Book 2 Chapter 8
