How do pain and suffering affect your relationship with God? Do you drift from God or do you move closer to Him? - Daily Bible Reflections January 2,2014

REMEMBER
 
If what you heard from the beginning remains in you, then you will remain in the Son and in the Father. – 1 John 2:24
 
A series of failed relationships paved the way for Ann to seek God and find healing. With her newfound love for God came self-love. She learned to value herself and relied on God’s promise: the best husband she could wish for.  From then on, she became a faithful servant in her Charismatic community. She taught catechism to kids and was a joy to be with.
       After years of serving the Lord, a new relationship blossomed. Everything fell into place, and a marriage proposal was on its way. But the guy suddenly called it quits.
       The pain of a broken heart led Ann back to her old wayward self. She left her community, stopped attending Mass, and returned to a life of drinking, smoking and illicit affairs. Self-love turned into self-destruction, and it seemed she had forgotten the God she had come to personally know.
       When something bad happens in our lives, we can choose to pull away from God’s embrace or remain in His protection. But God has shown us His great love for us from the beginning, when He sent Jesus to be our Savior. Let us always remember that great love. Osy Erica (osy.erica@gmail.com).
 
Reflection: How do pain and suffering affect your relationship with God? Do you drift from God or do you move closer to Him?
 
Jesus, when my heart is overwhelmed with pain, remind me of Your teachings. Strengthen my faith as I cling to You and Your promises.
