To live by faith is to live joyfully, to live with assurance untroubled by doubts and

with complete confidence in all we have to do and suffer at each moment by the will of God. We must realize that it is in order to stimulate and sustain this faith that God allows the soul to be buffeted and swept away by the raging torrent of so much distress, so many troubles, so much embarrassment and weakness and so many setbacks.

Abandonment to Divine Providence, Jean-Pierre de Caussade
