It is very important to control our emotions and feelings; otherwise they may end up controlling us. In the spiritual life in order to accept Godís will, we need to have self control; we must start by changing our attitudes.
First of all we must change our concept about the things we donít like. Yes. We have to start either liking displeasing things or simply ignoring them or accepting them.
We complain about noise for example, but the problem is bigger when we consciously think about the noise or get offended by the person or thing making it. If we make the noise ourselves or a person we love, the noise may not be so offensive.
We complain about the weather when it is cold, and then we complain when it is hot. We complain about something too sweet or something too bitter. We feel uncomfortable if it is too dark and then if there is too much light and itís bright. We complain if we are too busy, but we also feel bad if we have nothing to do.
Small attitudes make the big difference when it comes to accept the will of God. If it is hot, we should praise God; imagine a very icy worldÖ
If it is windy, we should praise and thank God, if there was no wind the air would be very heavy and polluted.
If it is cold or it is raining we must praise God because this is important and is part of the weather.
If someone offends us, we must forgive right away. Resentments create a barrier between God and us; they are in many cases the reason why people cannot have a good relationship with God.
When Jesus was crucified, there were two criminals crucified with Him. (Luke 23:39-42)
39 One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, "Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us!"
40 But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?
41 And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong."
42 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
43 He replied, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
We can see that the attitude of the good thief was completely different to that of the other man. While the good one died peacefully for understanding the situation and doing the will of God accepting his condemnation, the other suffered bitterly and did not get any reward from God.
When we have a headache or any other pain or suffering, we are being put to the test. We have the choice of doing the will of God and accept our misfortune or we can become irritated and frustrated. If we accept everything that is uncomfortable as coming from God, we can actually do the will of God and our misery is not as bad.
We must understand that this world is made of contrasts; we swing from one side to the other. We always want the perfect situation but that is not what we always get. Our lives could change greatly if we learned to accept those things that are uncomfortable and become more conscious of accepting the will of God.
The Will of God is unbreakable, we cannot change it, we may influence Godís will with our prayers, but we must accept Godís power as being stronger than our own power. So, whatís the use in complaining, it only makes things worse, therefore we must accept the will of God.
I have a very interesting testimony about accepting the will of God. The result was a miracle.
I used to have a tick in my right eye, it would come anytime of day or night and I had it for more than two years. One day I started praying about it because it was really annoying me too much. I prayed daily for several months and got no answer. I went to the doctor, he gave some tablets to make me relax but it didnít work.
One morning I was working at my desk and suddenly my other eye started ticking. For a moment I thought, after all the prayers I have made, is this the result? I then thought perhaps I have something bad behind my eyes, maybe a cancer in my brain or something like that. I was frightened; my two eyes had the same problem.
So I knelt down and I prayed like this: †Lord, I have been praying for this problem for a long time and you didnít answer. It seems now that the problem is bigger and I have nothing else to do. So, I accept the problem now, I may become blind in the near future, I regret not being able to continue my apostolate, I wonít be able to serve you as before, but not my will, let your will be done.
Instantly I got a response. The ticking stopped. I was cured. The problem never came back.
Praise God and his holy will. By accepting His will I was cured.
In the same way, when we do our prayers, when we ask God for anything we must do the prayer of Jesus in Gethsemane.
Luke 22:42 "Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me; yet, not my will but yours be done."
