Hermit Brief Break; Obedience Through Suffering

Taking a brief writing break.  Hermit continues the spiritual consultation with those who correspond and call.  How blessed to have spiritual discussion and focus in our lives!

Been pondering the Scripture:  He learned obedience through His sufferings.

This provides thought for goodness and aspect of learning obedience, ourselves.  As we progress in the spiritual life, climbing the stairway to heaven, our temporal spiritual directors or superiors may change from time to time, or be at a distance, or as many we read about--more and more experience His Real Presence guiding us increasingly.  Br. Lawrence and others have wisely written this reality.  Yet it is good to keep learning obedience.

Good to know at our Lord and Savior learned obedience when on earth, through His sufferings.

And so may we!

God bless His Real Presence in us!  Little children, let us love one another!
