“…we lay aside the attractive expectation that God might take away our difficulties. With our hearts turned contemplatively “God does something much more wonderful which is to join us in [our difficulties, with love].” What a beautiful thought. It seems a natural inclination to ask God to remove my difficulties, whereas the truth is that difficulties can be my best teachers. And so God does something more wonderful which is to be with me in the midst of them rather than take them away.
