Monday Reflection – Waiting
Sometimes we feel the days and years go rushing by, and it seems we are no closer to our hopes and dreams no matter how hard we try. But we must remember to not strive to our own thinking, but to have the patience and understanding to know that, no matter where we are or what we are doing, it is God’s will. Therefore, we must seek and accept His will so that our earthly lives are fulfilled, just as Jesus prayed for His father’s will to be done.
Wait for the Lord with courage; be stouthearted, and wait for the Lord. (Psalm 27:14)
Tuesday Reflection – Believing
God’s plan for us is not always known. But it’s there. When we think we can’t find Him, He is always close by and all we have to do is slow down, believe, and listen. We may not see His face, or touch His nail-scarred hands, but we can have faith that He has a loving heart and He will always be there for His children.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)
