Published again! God's Plan for YOU

 I have more great news! My work has yet again been published by Fr. Anthony, this time on how God works wonders through our lives and experiences. Please take the time to read the post, and understand that you too have a plan in store for you - and that all things happen for a reason! Stay strong, and never give up. Life is tough, but you are tougher! You can read the published post here http://franthony.com/2013/11/i-know-the-plans-i-have-for-you. If you would like to, please leave a comment HERE and on my post at Fr. Anthony's blog.

So many times, we get caught up in this world and we have no idea why things are happening, why we aren't getting what we want, and why things are so tough. But sometimes, it takes some time to see what God is doing in your life. Tired? Frustrated? Angry? Sad? Stressed? Bored? Hopeless? Faithless? Powerless? These are emotions that we all have at one time or another. But what is important is that you DO NOT GIVE UP. Do not let things take a toll on you. Let not your experiences make you feel inferior or weak. Do not get fed up and feel that you have no purpose or use. God is here, and He knows what He is doing. Let go and let God. Stop trying to make sense of what you do not understand - and start praying and working hard. Do not lose hope when things are tough - no matter what you are experiencing. I am proof of this. I was dying in the ICU and I didn't give up. Everyone prayed for me. I wanted to die, and I didn't know why this was happening to me. But, God did. God kept me alive for a reason - and look at where I am today! At the time, I had no idea why I was experiencing so many hardships. But now, I see why. I see that my experiences have made a stronger and wiser person, and that without this, my blog would not have been created.

Please take the time to read the post on Fr. Anthony's website. And, when you have a chance, think about something in your life that made you question or fear. Look back at it now: I guarantee that it made you stronger, served a purpose, helped others, or taught you something. God has plan for YOU.

  43. It is really a blessing that you deserve Marina to have your writings published by Father A.
    Spirituality plays an important role in our feelings and emotions.
    I am sure that your trust in God and the prayers of your church is as important to you as your hard work and commitment.

    I like the Psalm of the day
    I have been reading your blog and all the comments and I did visit father website and read the comments and I discouraged myself from making any comment but now I feel it is important to tell you this.
    As you know I am few weeks away from being 77 young man.
    I have to admit when I was young I was very stubborn tough man and I used to give orders to all my kids .
    Since I have become Christian 50 years ago I have been a different man ,I have become nicer to people ,smiling ,helpful and understanding.
    I am amazed how life in Christ is so good to us and to others.
    Even though I have to make my plans I do believe that all plans thought off by my brain and written by my hands by approved by my God.

    Praise the Lord
    If you do not mind ,I will leave this comment of Fr A website
