Inspiration – Oct 7

Steven PutmanLiturgyLeave a Comment

As a disciple, an extremely important question must always take precedence in decision making. What does God want me to do? In discerning answers to life’s questions and difficulties, it doesn’t matter what humans permit or even what popular choice dictates. It is what God says that matters. God’s will is often dismissed, even by those who claim to believe in Him. We discern God’s will by developing a strong and mature prayer life, listening to Scripture and church teaching, consulting church tradition, paying attention to the rhythms of life, and seeking His presence in all we experience and observe. As Jesus realized in his final hours, it is “not my will but yours be done.” Are we ready to follow his example and give ourselves over to what God wants?
