A little girl said to her Mother “Mummy,do all fairy tales begin with ‘Once upon a time’?” The Mother replied “No dear, some begin with ‘When I became a Christian,all my problems disappeared!” Problems,of course, come to us in many different forms,and at different times,in our lives. But the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is always there to carry us beyond those problems. We just need to reach out and take it! Furthermore, if we are able to accept that Christ’s perspective, on any problem we may encounter, is different from our own, then resentment should not be able to gain a foothold in our lives. Hopefully it may be replaced by rejoicing in the general goodness and greatness of our God who loves us with a love that is everlasting.
