I somehow, selfishly, have tried to grab the reigns from my Father's Hands. I don't even know how to drive on my own.
Every minute of every day I have to remember that I am never in control. If I have an inkling of negativity, what I SHOULD do is silently ask Jesus for help. What I NEED to do is offer those icky feelings so that I can be at peace with any given situation.
Why am I not doing this?
It seems so easy written down on paper.
What is wrong with me?
Do you feel this way too???
As I humble myself, as I lose my pride with recognizing my selfishness, my true original sinful behavior, I realize that this is my cross to bear during this Lenten season. As Jesus was in the desert, my 40 days is learning more about my place in this world as a Catholic woman and as a spiritual warrior.
I must take each day as it comes. Each valuable lesson my children can teach me, I must open my eyes to and see what Jesus sees. I have been looking with eyes of the flesh and this is why I have been so negative lately!
I cannot explain to those who have never felt this. I was filled with the Holy Spirit!!!
I know God wanted me to see with unconditional love to all my family (in this instance it just so happened to be my Catholic community). It was a wonderful feeling!!
Now I understand why He wanted me to experience that!
He needs me to be the woman I am meant to be.
All I needed was to sit and explain my experiences to you, dear Faithful Ones! THANK YOU!!!!!
What does God expect of you?
Are you at the side of a cliff barely hanging on or are you standing on top of it?
I share my experiences with you in hopes that you will reflect on your own personal intimacy with Christ. Everyone has a calling, a vocation. Everyone is called to do something great. All we have to do is be open and listen. Xoxo.
