We need to pray for those who have strayed from God's flock. Specifically, to recognize and praise God's Glory for all of the Graces received and yet to come out of this event we endure alone, with Him, and with family and neighbor. Amen.
Yesterday, I found myself asking in prayer what to pray for. Amidst my prayers up till then I had asked for God's presence, consolation, and healing for the world in this pandemic. And this morning, God answered me. See the second blog for today. Amen.
Two words that don't seem to go together. But see, with God the outcome is always Good. And in this time, to stay strong in our faith (Trust and Not Fear) we must take advantage of modern technology to bridge the gap created by our inability to worship together. Get digital - get close to God and neighbor. Amen.
Jesus models how to live. One of the most difficult examples is His falling three times on the way to Golgotha. Even knowing He was going to die for us, He got up and continued. We can do the same. Just trust in Him. Amen.
We are conditioned to expect everything almost instantaneously. God's ways are not our ways. In times such as these, we can re-program ourselves; which will reduce stress and increase trust in our loving Father. Amen.
