“God is permitting this.”

“God is permitting this.”

by Stephanie Emmons, author of She Made Me Laugh

One of her[Mother Teresa's] followers tells the story of how, when she was going through difficult times, she used to turn to Mother Teresa. “Don’t give in to your feelings.” Mother would say to her, “God is permitting this.” The woman later said that this really helped her come through without making a bad decision by acting on her negative feelings. Because of the dark times Mother Teresa endured herself, she could identify with others going through something similar, though no one realized it at the time.
