In the fullness of time, God will say to you: Arise!


“Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; while I am on my way, someone else gets down there before me.” (John 5: 7).

Tuesday 24th March 2020 of the 4th week of Lent.

Are you one of those who believe absolutely in human connections, having friends in high places to get that plumpy job, get your daughter into that Ivy league school? By hustling and bustling you think your smartness might cheat Divine Providence. No it won't. Throughout the Bible, God has revealed Himself as the God of mercies and Father of ALL consolations, ALL comforts. The Sacred Scriptures proclaim the Divine Providence of God in every page.

After 38 years of waiting for someone to help him into the pool in Bethesda, when the water is stirred, Jesus appeared one afternoon and said to the crippled man: “Rise, take up your mat, and walk.”  Immediately the man became well, took up his mat, and walked."
Coincidence or Providence? In His time, God makes everything beautiful. In the fullness of time, God will appear and bring you the healing or whatever your heart aches for.

"The Lord of hosts is with us: the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
God is for us a refuge and strength,
a helper close at hand, in time of distress, so we shall not fear though the earth should rock, though the mountains fall into the depths of the sea. (Psalm 46: 2 - 3).

If the Lord is your shepherd, no fear, no worry, no doubt. You are OK in everything until He says Mary/John, it is time. Let us go home.
