Thankful For: Incomprehensible

Today I'm grateful for the incomprehensible---why and how a loving God can use painful circumstances and sinful people for His glory.

Saint Francis' prayer has been running rampant in my heart.

I invite you to pray this along with me over your Thanksgiving celebrations today.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
