Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
I always hope and pray to have the Lord come into the circumstances and events of my life. But do I prepare a straight path for his coming into the moments of every day? Do I choose forgiveness instead of resentments? Do I accept ways of downward mobility and humility instead of engineering my own fame and ‘success’? Do I deliberately replace complaints and anxieties with trust in God’s infinite mercy? As I wait for You, Lord, teach me to prepare a straight path for your coming.
I was pushed hard so that I was falling, but the Lord helped me. (Psalm 118:13)
Who except God can give you peace? Has the world ever been able to satisfy the heart?
St. Gerard Majella
