Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
1 Samuel 15:16-23
Faith in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is not something that plateaus, is static or even passing. Rather, it always has potential to expand and grow, becoming ever more aligned with God’s love and mercy. Ever new is the potential of each day to draw me into a new facet of the mystery of holy hope, fruitful faith and life-giving love –with God, with others and with my own inner self. Folded into obedience (alignment) with the will of God, the possibilities of renewal, forgiveness and joy are endless.
Holy Spirit of God, renew me in obedience to your will.
Be my protector, O God, a mighty stronghold to save me.(Psalm 42)
We always find that those who walked closest to Christ were those who had to bear the greatest trials.
Sr. Teresa of Avila
