Creative Suffering

A dear friend and student sent these quotations from Joyce Rupp after having read the one posted a couple of days ago. They are a rich mine of wisdom insight, and comfort...

"When we learn how to say goodbye,
we truly learn how to say to ourselves and others:
'Go, God be with you.
I entrust you to God.
The God of strength, courage, comfort,
hope, and love, is with you.
The God who promises to wipe away all tears
will hold you close and will fill your emptiness.
Let go and be free to move on.'"

"When our suffering refines us
in such a way that it leads to inner change
and transformation that positively affects our lives
or that of others,
it becomes creative suffering."
