I’ll be posting again soon. My new phone has the app and I was too busy to give you worthy posts with all that was going on. I believe God has given me time and gifts again to move forward here. May God continue to bless all Christians who are communicating their faith in many areas across the Internet, around the world. It has never been more important than it is now with the attacks on our freedoms and rights here in the United States and around the world. “Be not afraid!”
Glory to God in the highest!! Yes, I finally have found employment, with another offer coming! Will the Lord not answer your prayer, according to His will, in His time, in His way? Would you not answer the plea of your child, even though it not be what your child is asking for, but it certainly be what he needs, what is good? Yes, you would. But the ways of the Lord are mysterious. I can tell you this - when I humbled myself, prayed at the prompting of the Spirit, and let it all go in abandonment to Him, something truly happened. For the first time, I really felt that, with the help of the Holy Spirit, in prayer and not through any mental way of my own, I acknowledged my nothingness. As near as I can tell, Jesus, in the Real Presence before me, filled me with the Holy Spirit, and perfected my prayer for God, the benevolent, loving Father. I have wandered in the desert for awhile, circling as the Israelites did. Know this my brothers and sisters, perseverance and prayer, coupled with true humility and faith, can bring the Assistance we need to accomplish His Will, right here and now. Read the Mass each day, embrace Lectio Divina, and pray the Psalms. Too much to cover here right now, I’ll provide more posts in the coming days. When your prayer runs dry or lukewarmness hits you, pray what you can, just keep praying. I can’t stress enough to persevere through it all, even a small, feeble prayer carries so much worth! May peace be yours.
…to the still, small voice inside of you. What is God whispering to you? What is the Holy Spirit filling your soul with, spilling over into you heart and making it beat and pulse with a joyful warmth that only comes from Him? Can you do it? Will you do it? Do you trust Him? Ordinary people are doing extraordinary things right now based on love, trust, and grace alone.
May we continue to witness and be a Witness to the Faith, in the way that the Early Church did, by discernment and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us. Discern what gifts you have been given and use them wisely. The work of God is achieved through our actions, even in the way we are present among others. O Lord, may we who are nourished by your Word, Body, and Blood, be your servants and work tirelessly to transform the world around us through the workings of The Holy Spirit. Amen.
