Gal 2:19 – 20
For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
In Conversation with God:
When Our Lord gives us a taste of his Cross through suffering and sickness, we should see ourselves as his favoured children…
… pain is not only of use to others, but it fulfils a service for which there is no substitute. In the Body of Christ… suffering, permeated by the spirit of Christ’s sacrifice, is an irreplaceable mediator and the source of those goods which are indispensable for the salvation of the world. Suffering, more than anything else, makes present in the history of mankind the power of the Redemption.
… i’m really not as stubborn as i seem said the knuckle to the concrete… i’m not saying that i’m giving up… never is a lonely little messed up word… i’m feeling helpless for the most part but i’m learning to open my eyes and the sad truth of the matter is i’ll never get over it but i’m gonna try to get better and overcome each moment…i so want to get back on track, and i’ll do whatever it takes even if it kills me…
