If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God,
who gives to all liberally and without reproach,
and it will be given to him.
My child, do not expect the trials to be lighter than in the
past. Why should you think the tests would be less severe? I test
all things, and there are areas of your life that as yet I have not
touched. Do not look for respite. The days ahead my call for
greater endurance and more robust faith than you ever needed
before. Welcome this, for you must surely know how precious are
the lessons learned through such experiences. Even if you are
unable to fully anticipate them with joy, you can certainly gain an
appropriate appreciation of them in retrospect.
Apply your heart to learn wisdom. This goal transcends every
other aim, and any other good that comes out of a pressure period
is an added blessing in excess.
Seek me above all else.
