“Every Christian life stands in the middle of that tension between the ‘already’ and the ‘not yet’ which characterizes the present moment in the divine plan. It stands between the wonders of the past and the glorious final consummation. It is linked to the first by faith and to the second by hope.” (Mariano Magrassi)
I think statements like this one bring hope because we often feel like we are living in that “tension” and can wonder what is wrong with us. So we should not be surprised if we find ourselves in that space, but live fully surrendered in the present moment of God’s divine plan.
