I pray I will always have the strength to do what God wants of me.
John 16: 12 – 15
I remember studying Freud forty years ago. The professor said we should never tell anyone what was wrong with them or give solutions to their problems even if they begged us. He also said we should let the clients figure it out for themselves. We had to be patient. If the persons were not strong enough to deal with the information they would, among other things, leave and never come back. They were not ready to deal with the information.
A popular, Tom Cruise movie has the line : “You can’t handle the truth”.
These things, from so many years ago came to mind when I read today’s Gospel.
I pray with the help of The Holy Spirit, I will always have the strength to do what God wants of me. Let me not run away from Him if what He wants takes me out of my comfort zone.
