The best way to gather your thoughts is having a main one that helps you to recognise the others, and to cast the evil and support the good ones. The easiest way is this prayer: ‘Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner!’ We say this in order to be able to be steadfast in good thoughts.
Life puts us to harsh tests - problems we’ve never thought of. So what? All of these are small compared to the sacrifice our Lord made for our salvation. He allows our struggle, but after a small amount of time he reveals again His glory. The more someone comes closer to the light the more we can see his flaws. The deeper we go into the spiritual life, the more we can see our faults, sins and know ourselves better.
Seen from a human point of view the cross means diligence, suffering and fighting the evil and since all these things cannot be avoided in the present life, neither can we avoid the cross. All men must bear their cross. The price of sin is death, the cross of atonement and suffering is natural in this age. Through His suffering, God our Saviour has opened a new perspective of the Cross: that of sufferance, but not the sufferance of death but the sufferance of life. The little suffering of the Cross will absolve us from the eternity of death
