We shouldn’t think of ourselves as victims of cir- cumstances. God, who loves and protects us, is pres- ent. He won’t allow anything to happen to us unless it is for our benefit.
No matter how sensible a human being, without the sense of God’s love, he is miserable. And indeed, a human being who cannot love is miserable. Love is the life of soul.
“God loves me. That’s why he made me. That’s why He still lets me live. That’s why he has given me all the gifts until now. He loves me because He is a compassionate and merciful God and He wants to grant me His mercy”.
If you believe so, your life will immediately change.
