“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Ephesians 2:22

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

You too, in Him, are being built into a house where God lives, in the Spirit.

– Ephesians 2:22

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Do I want to be a house in which God lives and reigns,

or do I see God only as that visitor who is welcome but only occasionally?

.

It may very well be that He is actually not welcome at all,

because I know that there are things in my house, which He will not approve of,

but which I am stubbornly not prepared to let go of?

.

If I seek the Lord in truth, He will answer,

and I shall kneel before Him

and humbly ask Him to rebuild my “house” with bricks and mortar of faith, hope and love.

On my part, I will embrace His Word, the Commandments, prayer and the Sacraments,

because they are what will help me maintain my house in order and fit for the King to reign in.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, I am not worthy,

but come and live with me – in me –

and help me put my house in order.

.

Be my foundation, Lord,

and help me become a solid structure

that will withstand the storms of life

and keep out the unwelcome but persistent seducer.

.

And Lord, fill my house – my soul – with Your Spirit,

so that I may truly understand

and fully appreciate who it is who reigns in me

– the Source of my faith, hope and love, and of my joy –

that I may keep You in here with me forever. Amen.
