Once a pastor had a vision.
Three sisters were kneeling and praying, when Jesus came by.
Jesus did not even go near the first one. He smiled at the second one, and when He came to the third one He laid His hand on her head.
Seeing this vision the pastor thought that perhaps the first sister did not love the Lord .
"The second one at whom Jesus smiled may love Jesus a little," he thought, "but the third one must love the Lord very much indeed!"
As the pastor was thinking like this, the Lord spoke to him:
"My son, the truth is the other way round. I did not go near the first sister because I know the she loves Me very much and that she trusts My love so much that even if I don't immediately answer her prayer or speak to her, she will not be shaken or leave Me. The second one is a bit unsteady. At least once in a way I must show her My love and care for her, or she may get upset. The third one is spiritually very weak; she has only a shallow love for Me. If I don't immediately give what she asks for, she will murmur and complain and become cold in her love for Me, and may even leave Me."
Dear child of God, are you like the third sister?
Is your love for the Lord shaken when the Lord does not answer your prayer or if your plans and desires are not fulfilled.
May the Lord help us to say as St. Paul said,
"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us." Romans 8:35
May the Lord fill our hearts with such a strong love that nothing can separate us from His love.
