It seems as though God would not be omnipotent, almighty . Is our free will greater than the divine power ? God does not want to manipulate us , to coerce us into doing something , but He would like a conscious decision by love .
He asks for a deliberate decision of an adult from us.
Difficulties are God’s gifts , with which tackling, struggling day after day are we trying our wings . God in His infinite mercy saw it good , that man can only bring himself , his surrounding with travailing effort into the world . One should not be afraid of the work, the effort , the endeavour ! Lets place our crosses upon our shoulders , and follow the crucified Christ like that . The unfolding of our being, existence is the work and the struggle itself .
There is answer to every question of our age we live in ! That is why I beseech gnawing “ hunger “ , strength , so in our world drifting only by weak inertia we stand up, face our questions , doubts we get going again and we find God !
Jesus always heartens, encourages man : “ Be not afraid, I am with you , we conquered the evil .” The evil spirit is the one that panics , becomes uncertain , does not trust in the future of the beautiful created by the Heavenly Father , Jesus trust in Him, because He knows that the Father does not create rejects . On the night of Christmas He dares to come alone amongst us . He dares to place His life into our hands . He does not retreat , even though He has to go through many difficulties , He does not starts to argue, quarrel but continues His work . It is worthwhile to pay attention to Him , to continue our live according to His laws , just as Mary did .
I believe that Mary could say even at the bottom of the cross : ““Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Let be it unto me and my Son according to thy will”. How great it would be , if with living faith we could trust the Lord of Life ! Our lives are leading through the Golgotha . We would really need this "Marian “ spirituality .
I admire in Jesus that infinite calmness and serenity with which He faces His sad , resigned disciples from Emmaus . He calmly listens to their concerns an lovingly speaks to them , He does not complain but consoles , encourages . After the talk these men with burning hearts in the middle of the night are capable to set out on a journey and return to the faraway Jerusalem to tell that God is alive and loves them !
Christ does not judge , does not condemn anybody , He helps the way out of hopeless situations for the ones desiring to bring to fruition their most beautiful dreams . The ones who met Him , they all moved on richer and stronger . He does not live from the people but for the people . I am convinced , that all power is given for this purpose here on earth.
