What A Journey It Has Been!

After all trials, surprises and challenges in life we can most appropriately utter the above (title) statement (quoted from a popular song), accompanied always deep in our hearts by a deep sense of gratitude towards God Almighty.  Really, if only we deeply contemplate on this fleeting course of our lives, we can see there how the hand of God’s providence is ever there to guide and protect us and then we can only thank Him most graciously for that loving care on all of His children.  Yes, and He took care of us since our tenderest years, giving us loving parents who took care of us in discipline and education that we may learn to fend for ourselves and be able to face future challenges and struggles in our earthly passage towards God’s future heavenly Kingdom. 

On our part what we have to do is to place ourselves in His trust.  But we must not forget what Jesus, the Son of God, asks us to do: “Ask, and it will be given to you, search, and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.  For the one who asks always receives; the one who searches always finds; the one who knocks will always have the door opened to him” (Mt. 7:7).  “If you, then, who are evil, know how to give your children what is good, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!” (Mt. 7:11).

It’s comforting to realize we truly have a Father in heaven who cares for us as we continue to journey in life.  So as a popular song goes: walk with hope in your heart, and you’ll never walk alone.  Let’s not forget the very words God’s Testament tells us in the letter of St. Paul to the Romans: “All things work together unto good for those who love God” (Rom. 8:28).
