Fenelon - Acceptance of God's Will

Bear all the annoyances of your present condition, which is full of inconveniences and discomfort, in a penitential spirit; these are the penances God assigns you, and far more useful than what you may choose for yourself. The best state to be in is that in which God's hand holds you; do not look beyond it; think only of accepting everything from moment to moment, in the spirit of self denial and self-renunciation. But this acquiescence should be full of trust in God, who loves you more the less he spares you.
