TODAY’S WORD…

.

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
.

They shall be like a tree planted by water,
sending out its roots by the stream.
It shall not fear when heat comes,
and its leaves shall stay green;
in the year of drought it is not anxious,
and it does not cease to bear fruit.

.

– Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

Let’s read it again:

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord,
whose trust is the Lord.
They shall be like a tree planted by water,
sending out its roots by the stream.
It shall not fear when heat comes,
and its leaves shall stay green;
in the year of drought it is not anxious,
and it does not cease to bear fruit.

.

The Spirit is asking all of us

to draw strength from these verses

…and to have faith in the Lord

and to accept Him into our heart

that our life may be complete.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“…to send out roots means to put one’s trust in God.

From Him we draw our life.

Without Him, we cannot truly live. […]

.

Christian faith

is not only a matter of believing that certain things are true,

but above all a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

It is an encounter with the Son of God

that gives new energy to the whole of our existence.

When we enter into a personal relationship with Him,

Christ reveals our true identity

and, in friendship with Him,

our life grows towards complete fulfilment.”

.

– Pope Benedict XVI

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Lord and my God, I trust in You.

Come, Lord, and take over my life.
