Don’t waste your suffering!
We are able to give our sufferings to God, in reparation for sin, for poor sinners as our Blessed Mother asked us to when she appeared to the three peasant children in Fatima, Portugal. We must not waste it. Think of all the souls we could impact if we only made our suffering a prayer instead of a time for complaining!
Obviously this is not easy, and I’m guilty of not using my suffering for good, but when Mary the Mother of God comes to earth and asks something of her children we mustn’t turn a blind eye. That’s foolish, and we should know better than that.
We must respond to our Mother’s call! She is here to help lead us to God, her son, so what is the hold up on our part? For me it’s pride. Maybe for you it’s fear, or the lack of strength. Whatever it may be, it’s time to say no to self and yes to God. It’s time to die to self so that we may live in God.
Our Lady of Fatima, talking to the three peasant children, said that many souls are lost because they have no one to ‘pray for them, or make sacrifices for them’. Well now you know, so what’s the excuse? Are you going to say no to Mary?
Pray for me and I’ll pray for you!
Signing off, talk to you all soon! God bless, Zac.
