When you feel the most abandoned, you are the least alone.
A wonderful coincidence in the form of advice:
These words were forwarded to me today by means of one of my greatest friends of life, Paulette Cameron, who just happened to receive these words from her oh so wise mother:
"You know there is a spirit that wants us to be less than we are. Discouragement, doubt, a feeling of injustice, intimidation, any down feeling is not from God but away from God. When you come to that realization you can see how the feeling of betrayal, being cheated etc. are definitely not a good spirit. Give it to God and overcome those feelings which can be a challenge. Pray , go to confession and share it there, and give yourself to Christ in the Eucharist so that you will not dwell on it, lose any sleep over it and do not let it control any part of you. Injustices can make someone bitter or they can strengthen you depending who you turn to; yourself to mope, or to God to be free of it."
I can't help but feel like she was inspired to write this, just so I would read it, take heart, and remember that even when things are bad, you are never alone.
I may be without a single human comfort,
But not without a divine.
