Let Go And Let God Handle It

If anyone out there is feeling abandoned, alone or worried — take it to the Lord in prayer. He will give you peace, all you need is ask.  It’s o.k. to ask others to pray for you, as we are instructed to love one another and carry each others burdens.

  1. This is off-topic, but I couldn’t resist sharing this beautiful letter written on
    Christmas Eve, 1513.

    Within Our Reach: Joy
    BY FRA GIOVANNI GIOCONDO

    I salute you. I am your friend, and my love for you goes deep. There is nothing I can give you which you have not. But there is much, very much, that, while I cannot give it, you can take. No heaven can come to us unless our hearts find rest in it today. Take heaven! No peace lies in the future which is not hidden in this present little instant.

    Take peace! The gloom of the world is but a shadow. Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy. There is radiance and glory in darkness, could we but see. And to see, we have only to look. I beseech you to look!

    Life is so generous a giver. But we, judging its gifts by their covering, cast them away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the covering, and you will find beneath it a living splendor, woven of love by wisdom, with power. Welcome it, grasp it, and you touch the angel’s hand that brings it to you.

    Everything we call a trial, a sorrow or a duty, believe me, that angel’s hand is there. The gift is there and the wonder of an overshadowing presence. Your joys, too, be not content with them as joys. They, too, conceal diviner gifts.

    Life is so full of meaning and purpose, so full of beauty beneath its covering, that you will find earth but cloaks your heaven. Courage then to claim it; that is all! But courage you have, and the knowledge that we are pilgrims together, wending through unknown country home.

    Fra Giovanni Giocondo (c.1435–1515) was a Renaissance pioneer, accomplished as an architect, engineer, antiquary, archaeologist, classical scholar, and Franciscan friar. Today we remember him most for his reassuring letter to Countess Allagia Aldobrandeschi on Christmas Eve, 1513.

    1. Stig,
      I believe it speaks of the strengthening of the INNER MAN as being all-important. The Apostle Paul wrote 2/3 of the New Covenant and it seems to me that his prayers centered around this strengthening of the inner man.
