Thank God for everything, or I will repay the loan and go to the monastery

It is easy to thank the Lord when everything in our life is going well. But Marina, the heroine of our story, learned to say the words “Thank God for everything!” Even when she felt the possibility of losing her closest relatives ...

Thank God for everything - women's joy

Is it pleasing to the Lord?

“Marina, how are you?” - at the other end of the city, a woman with a velvety voice smilingly answered: “Thank God for everything!”.

Marina, I know more than one year. Nice, bright, she regularly went to church. She knew a lot of prayers, read akathists, in the mornings she tasted prosforki, regularly received communion and distributed alms.

Her faith was childishly naive, but equally sincere. “For myself, I have lived for several decades, it would be time for God to serve,” the woman reasoned. “Here I’ll just pay off the loan and go to the monastery.”

And in fact: the husband has long since passed away into eternity, the only daughter married and raising a little daughter. Now they themselves will cope, and in old age from grandmother only the hassle will increase ...

The solution of economic issues did not require efforts and years of expectations.But here the unpredictable happened: a card with money was stolen.

There is no blessing for monasticism

And then my daughter divorced her husband ... Marina was upset, but she repeated one of her favorite phrases: "Thank God for everything."

The relationship with her daughter was cracked: she was baptized, but not a believer, so the mother did not understand. In the meantime, Marina tried to somehow teach her granddaughter to believe: either she would tell about Jesus Jesus for the night, then she would give communion to the Liturgy on Saturday.

Then the daughter got married a second time, even waiting for another child. Marina was quietly happy, paid out a loan a little and silently recalled the monastery.

All this interrupted the unexpected news: the daughter of Onco. Third stage.

... Marina cried and re-learned to speak her beloved"Thank God for everything". Looking at the seriously ill, but still very distant daughter, a little granddaughter, who may not have a mother tomorrow (and she saw her father only on weekends), Marina understood her attachment to worldly life. She is needed here, it is not yet time for the monastery.

But God knew all this even when the card with the money to pay the loan was in Marina’s wallet. Oh, or even when there was no card yet.

P. S.History is true. Changed only the name of the heroine.
