Thomas a Kempis: when things go ill

Tuesday, July 24, 2012
    Commemoration of Thomas à Kempis, priest, spiritual writer, 1471
I know, O LORD, that your laws are righteous,
    and in faithfulness you have afflicted me.
    —Psalm 119:75 (NIV)
    Count not thyself to have found true peace, if thou hast felt no grief; nor that then all is well if thou hast no adversary; nor that this is perfect if all things fall out according to thy desire.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Of the Imitation of Christ [1418], Leipzig: Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1877, III.xxv.3, p. 163 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, assist me to see Your hand in my troubles.
