A good soul, a good, honest and sincere man has peace in him and that’s why he is in good terms with all people and the whole creation –even the little ants, the birds and the little animals. But, mostly, he is in a good terms with himself.
Sometimes we need to stand before the Lord like babies. Let Him see that we are crying, let Him see that we are in pain, that we want to change and that we love Him. Let Him see that no matter how things stand, no matter what pulls us away from Him, we wish to be near Him, in His joy and grace.
Today’s man is incapable of staying with himself. That’s his biggest issue. He is constantly on the look- out for an alibi or an excuse entertainment to take his mind off himself.
