So I am trying to understand why we are being called to make some big changes in our lives as we finally seem settled and content and this is the passage I was led to most recently from Abandonment to Divine Providence.
In the introduction John Beevers describes the similar thoughts of spiritual views between Jean-Pierre de Caussade (author) and St. Francis de Sales...
"...Caussade says "abandonment," St. Francis generally uses the word "indifference," but this is merely a matter of vocabulary. St. Francis tells us to "ask for nothing and refuse nothing," and declares that "the indifferent heart is like a lump of wax in God's hands, readily receiving every impression of His will." He describes as a sure sign that we are truly and perfectly indifferent if we stop in the middle of some meritorious work if God wills it and turn back halfway toward a worthy goal if He says we should. Another word used by St. Francis is "detached": "The detached soul does not care if it is serving God by meditating, or serving Him by looking after a neighbor. What matters is what God wants the soul to do at this particular time."
So my prayer today is, "Lord, mold me as you wish and make sure I don't get in the way of Your plans!"
