Why should you despair?

simplyorthodox:

Since our sweet Jesus is so good,
compassionate and kind, why should you despair? We seek one small
thing from Him, and He gives us so much! We ask for one beam of light
, and He gives us Himself as all Light, Truth, and Love. So humble
yourself and rest all your hope in Him.

– Elder Joseph the Hesychast, Source

All He asks of us is one look. Just one moment’s glance at the cross. And from that point on He rewards our most feeble faith with showers of grace. He takes our mustard seed and grows from it a vast tree.

When I finally looked at the cross. When my eyes caught the sight of Jesus crucified for me. I asked for mercy. And God gave me Heaven.

He is truly the giver of such divine gifts!
