Kids in school, life getting back to normal, hope to post more regularly again.
What do we learn when we go to heaven? What will we wish we had known all along? I was reading about St. Augustine and wondered if he could come back now what he would tell us.
Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe. ~ St Augustine
God is the living water, He is the gate, the food, the abundance, but He is also our trials, I think. As God hardened Pharaoh’s heart against freeing Mose’s and his people perhaps he hardens our hearts too at times.
Will is to grace as the horse is to the rider. ~ St. Augustine
So is how we respond to trials what truly matters? I think so. Do we respond in love and faith? Are we Job or fallen angels?
To seek the highest good is to live well. ~ St. Augustine
If we then seek the highest good, our attempt is the measure of our success, not our degree of success or failure. It is God’s grace that determines the outcome. Living each moment becomes our cross and our salvation and all we need to do is carry on.
St Augustine, pray for us. Tell us what you have learned.
