Not only suffering.

For seven times the righteous one falls and rises again, but the wicked plunge into their misfortune. Proverbs 24:16

As long as we walk on earth our life can be sprinkled with pain and suffering, the world is terrible and there are many bad things and sometimes the bad ones come in sequence, but in the same way there are still many beautiful and good things that happen to us, we can still see, we can breathe, we can live and even to smile, we can still love and be loved. Those who wait on God every day have new strength, courage and hope, perhaps not because the economic situation improves and we are an economic power, but in spite of everything, God has been, is and will continue to be with us. There is no doubt that our God is good and merciful even to those who do not even respect him, so why be desperate or worried? God is good and wonderful and those who seek him receive daily blessings, maybe not a car model, but if tomorrow we can breathe, and see our own, we have an excellent reason to say thank you Lord for your kindness. "It is a mistake to make room for the thought that God is pleased to see his children suffer. All heaven is interested in man’s happiness. Our heavenly father does not close the avenues of joy to any of his creatures "(CC47). There are those who think that the Christian life is synonymous with suffering as Jesus suffered, believing that the reward is in heaven only and that we came to the world only to suffer, this is not true at all, here there is pain and suffering but there are also many opportunities to be happy and enjoy even what little or much we have, but it is no reason that the Christian life is only suffering on earth. Jesus came into the world to take our death and give us his life, life so that we may live it in abundance and happiness. With God at hand there is joy in our hearts and there is hope for the future, understanding that if at some point we suffer, soon we will be in a place where there will never be suffering. But while we are here, let us not despair because God will take care of us.
