For when you say only the things that you believe you should say, rather than being honest, any relationship grows cold, including one with God.
Father James Martin, Jesus: A Pilgrimage
I remembered this just yesterday and it was of immense help.
Instead of just putting up with something, I needed to be completely honest with God about the fact that I was afraid, distrustful in fact, that He wasn't going to come through for me in a certain situation.
Wow, did that help with everything. Including connecting with God.
And then I could prepare for the fact that I might just have to put up with it. (I didn't have to, but that's a different story.)
