From the late Archimandrite John (Krestiankin):
My dears, the world is governed by God’s Providence and not by us mortals. I will tell you from experience that the sooner we accept what God has given us, the easier it will be to bear God’s good yoke, His easy yoke. It becomes heavy from our inner resistance. Such a time has come when only faith that God’s Providence orders life can overcome all the hardships of life.
Lord! You know all things; do with me as You will. Amen.
