Faith To Sleep Like A Baby Through The Storm


Faith To Sleep Like A Baby Through The Storm
By: Eric Gajewski
We cannot control the Storm it is here we learn patience.  It is here we are purified and learn to submit toHis Will.  No man is bigger than the Storm but no Storm is bigger than God hence why man needs God to get through the Storms. 
Parents want what is best for the children.  This should go out without say.  It is tough to see another suffering let alone our own flesh and blood.  Can you imagine the sufferings of Our Lady during His Passion?  Words cannot truly begin to say the interior horrors that must have been present within her.  Having said this, there was once a Saint, who said, that, “we are carpenters (mostly) of our crosses”.  In a certain sense we bring about our own crosses due to our own defects.  One of the ways we can be “carpenters of our own Cross” is to have doubt, worry and fear where Faith, Hope and Charity should be.  The devil has a “big three” just as we Catholics do.  God is waiting for you in your trial to exercise some Faith.  We all come to those moments during every day where fear, doubt and worry can creep up on us suddenly.  It is not sinful until we concede to such and actually believe these tricks of the devil.  Do you have Faith enough to sleep through the Storm without Valium or Xanax?  God is the greatest “pill” you can ever take , therefore, we must grow in grace.


The panicky dog.  For some reason animals seem to know when a storm is about to approach.  I do not know how it just seems that way to me.  Storms will come and go just as crosses come and go.  Those who try to bypass the Storm and go right to the rainbow will never truly be transformed.  In fact, according to the true religion, it is not even possible.  For the way of the Cross is the only way.  If it were possible to view the rainbow before the Storm who would ever wait around for the storm therein after (in our human nature)?  It is grace which sustains us.  Take a look at some dogs, for example, who will go run and hide in the corner and be in perpetual fear during the storm.  The man of self is similar.  Rather, than lean upon the Cross he leans upon his own understanding and finds a couch to go hide behind.  I must be blunt, doubting and worrying really “annoy” Our Lord.  If you don’t believe me take a look at some of the examples in the Gospel where He is really giving “an earful” to Peter or the apostles who simply wont demonstrate Faith.  It is not easy to respond as such but this is why we need to stay close to God in prayer, the Sacraments, praying our Rosary, etc.


Reminders.  I think it is a good practical reminder for us all including myself shortly before bed to exercise this Faith.  We must constantly show God this Faith which pleases Him.  Review Scriptures covering the topic and read up on the Saints who spoke on the matter.  Grace is not a mental mind game it comes freely from God and we will only get more grace if we do not doubt and worry.  Let us cling closely to Our Mother who is always first to arrive at the “crib” in the morning to “let in the Son’s Light’s” from above.  Mary is with us in the dark.  I call her the nightlight in my book for us children.  She helps to keep the fear away.  St. Anthony of Padua called Mary the “full moon’ for she is perfection seen most bright at night.  We know the Church is in a dark crisis and thus we have recourse to Mary.  Likewise, with our own souls, we cling to Mary in our “dark night” for She helps guide us unto the morning Light of the son.
