Strong Faith

"Courage, my daughter, your faith has saved you." (Matthew 9:22)

Strong faith saves. Strong faith brings result. Am I capable of such a faith?

We begin a New Year, 2010 today. I have one New Year resolution: Trust. I will trust God more this year than I did in 2009. I will trust Him in all things, at all times and everywhere. I will trust Him one event at a time. I will trust Him one day at a time. At the beginning of the day, I declare my resolve to trust Him for everything throughout the day.

Sweet Promise

'Be sure, I am with you; I shall keep you safe wherever you go, and bring you back to this country, for I shall never desert you until I have done what I have promised you." (Genesis 28: 15)

Father, your word is very sweet and your promise such a comfort to the heart. I believe that you are faithful to your word. May I never doubt that you will fulfill the promises you have made to me.

If God is with me, then it is accomplished.

Putting into practice

"Come to me all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light." (Matthew 11: 28 – 30)

How many times a year do I hear this invitation? How many times do I respond with similar words? "Lord, here I am."

What then is missing? It is the learning process and putting into practice what I learn. Lord, teach me. Show me how to put into practice what you teach me.

Life to mortal bodies

"If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the death dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through His Spirit that dwells in you." (Romans 8: 11)

Most Holy Spirit, I believe that you dwell in me. Give life to my body. Thank you O Holy Spirit.
