Piercing Through

To live by faith is to live in joy, assurance, certitude, confidence in what one must do and suffer at each moment at God’s command.

It is to animate and sustain this life of faith that God permits the soul to be overwhelmed and carried away on the tumultuous waters of so many pains, troubles, embarrassments, weaknesses, and defeats, for faith is needed to find God in all that.

Faith pierces through these appearances and comes to rest on the support of God, who keeps it alive.
