Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Loving, obeying, and holding fast to God is not a popular activity in these days of self-love and obeying your ‘gut’, when holding fast to money, reputation and your phone or computer are seen to be ‘essential’ priorities. But in truth, my future both now on earth, and in eternity, will be defined simply by my relationship to God. When I deliberately choose to look for God along life’s journey, and elect to love, obey and hold fast to the Holy One above all else, I will indeed be choosing life. This is not an easy one-time choice, but a continual effort to find, recognize, and live into the nature and will of God. Holy Spirit, help me to continually recognize and choose life.
Happy are those whose delight is in the Lord. (Psalm 1:1-2)
Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house.
Blessed Mother Teresa
