“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Isaiah 55:6-7

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Seek the Lord while He makes Himself available;

call to Him while He is nearby!

.

The wicked need to abandon their lifestyle

and sinful people their plans.

They should return to the Lord, and He will show mercy to them,

and to their God, for He will freely forgive them.

.

– Isaiah 55:6-7 (NET)

REFLECTION…

.

We are called to conversion.

We need to look deeply into ourselves,

to see where we are spiritually and morally lacking,

and we must seek God…return to Him.

.

And the Lord,

who allows Himself to be found

and who does not judge in the way that men do,

will be found willing and able to grant forgiveness

– He will show mercy.

.

The Spirit constantly encourages us

to begin and begin again,

and to never relent in the pursuit of virtue.

We, on our part, should grasp every opportunity that God offers us.

.

QUOTE…

.

“To be converted means to ask for forgiveness

and to seek out the strength of God in the Sacrament of reconciliation,

and thus begin again, advancing step by step every day,

learning to overcome ourselves,

to win the spiritual battles that we face,

and to give of ourselves joyfully,

‘for God loves a cheerful giver’ (2 Cor 9:7).”

.

– St. John Paul II

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, have mercy on me and help me overcome myself.

Melt me, mould me, change me!
