How long, O LORD? I cry for help but you do not listen! I cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not intervene. Why do you let me see ruin; why must I look at misery? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and clamorous discord. Then the LORD answered me and said: Write down the vision clearly upon the tablets, so that one can read it readily. For the vision still has its time, presses on to fulfillment, and will not disappoint; if it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late. The rash one has no integrity; but the just one, because of his faith, shall live.
–Habakkuk 1:2-3, 2:2-4
Sometimes it can seem as though we are met with disappointment after disappointment. That we are struggling just to keep our head above water. That our crosses are too much to bear. A cross that is not heavy is probably not a real cross. As we hope to be resurrected with Our Lord, we must prepare to imitate Him in His passion. We know the eternal reward that has been promised, but we need to be patient and have faith.
Today, pray about the crosses you bear offer your suffering to the Lord.
