They Can’t Take That Away From You
When you feel you have lost everything and are left empty-handed; when it seems as though the winds of gossip and criticism are howling in your direction; where those you love have left you alone; there’s one thing they can’t take away from you… a treasure far greater than any other… the interior freedom and peace that only comes from God.
“Be not afraid!” as Pope John Paul II put it, for in this state of loss, you are wealthier than any millionaire if you are connected to Christ. By joining your heart to His, He will give you everything you need: courage, strength, patience, love, forgiveness… nothing will He deny you if you should only ask Him for it. And after you have fought the good fight, He will reward you with the eternal treasure of life with Him in heaven.
No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. - 1 Corinthians 2:9
