Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
The words of Jesus are wonderful and life-giving! – but only inasmuch as I act on them. It is only as I align every thought, word and deed with the words of Christ Jesus - or every note, every pause and every movement of my life’s symphony with the will of the great Composer – that my being becomes firmly grounded on the rock of God’s mercy. When I feel my world shake and shudder in the winds of change and human error, I need not be afraid, as much as I have lived into Jesus’ words of love and mercy. How much of my life has been built on the words of Christ rather than the words of the world? Christ Jesus, help me listen to your words and act on them.
He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake. (Psalm 23:3)
Those of steadfast mind You keep in peace –in peace because they trust in you,”
Soli gloriam dei.
