Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Adoration: I arise to follow you, Christ Jesus...
Petition: Holy Spirit, help me arise and follow Jesus...
Matthew (Levi) was sitting at his tax booth wheeling and dealing figures and coins when Jesus came by. Where am I sitting and what am I doing as my Redeemer comes by to see me? Matthew got up and followed Jesus. He went on to become one of the twelve, an Apostle, a missionary and the recorder of the first Gospel. When Jesus catches my eye, do I get up and follow him? What special work does the future hold for me, as his disciple? Holy Spirit, help me arise and follow Jesus. I arise to follow you, Christ Jesus.
My soul is consumed with longing for your precepts at all times. I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I set your ordinances before me. (Psalm 119)
With God, every moment is the moment of beginning again... Faith walks simply, childlike, between the darkness of human life and the hope of what is to come.
