The spiritual saint never believes circumstances to be haphazard, or thinks of his life as secular and sacred; he sees everything he is dumped down in as the means of securing the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
I want my faith to be authentic. Therefore I choose to see the good, the bad... and everything in between, as events that can draw me closer to Jesus Christ.
It's not about me. It's all about Him and what He wants for me and from me. Life is not about what I want or what I think. He created me for a purpose. and to fulfill it I have to know Him.
To know the heart of Jesus Christ I have to invest the time to know Him.
