Gospel: Matthew 15:21-28, "The Faith of the Canaanite Woman"
Companion: Kim Francis B. Domingo
Sometimes, we question God about the trials that we experience. We usually feel that we don't deserve to be in those specific situations. We feel that we deserve something better.
Life is full of lessons. We were given free will so that we can make our own decisions but we should be prepared for every possible consequence. When all reasons fail, when all options end, it will all leave us with one thing - our faith in God.
As humans, we have limitations. It is something that is plain to see but there are some who refuse to admit it. With the modern times, some people feel that with sufficient resources, everything can be done. But truth will be realized later on and we will be left with the most powerful weapon of all. Like what the Canaanite Woman have, it is our faith in God - in his love and his power. His power to make what we are praying for, happen, but in His own time. His love, that He will never let us perish, that He will never give us trials that we cannot overcome, that everything happens for a reason. Reasons that only He can understand. All you have to do is to have faith in Him.
