God is in every person’s life.…Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs, or anything else – God is in this person’s life. You can – you must – try to seek God in every human life. Though someone’s life be a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God.
