“My goal is God…and my happiness is in accomplishing His will, and nothing in the world can disturb this happiness for me: no power, no force of any kind.”
These words were a balm for the turmoil in my soul, and almost immediately, hope began to resurface. Instead of being irrationally angry at the election results or frustrated with people who did not vote the same way I did, I saw the need to return to self, and see how God was speaking to me. The focus became, once again, the need to look at my own conversion. How faithfully am I seeking the will of God in my daily life? How faithful am I to my prayer life, to serving Him within my vocation?
