My One Year Blog Anniversary!
Today in St. Paul's letter to the Romans I could see the community being read St. Paul's words. He was so full of passion and his words moved me. I was and am especially moved by this passage:
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I wish that I could tell you that I have this confidence that St. Paul speaks of everyday, but, no I get sidetracked. I become uncertain. I am afraid. Then ever so gently God speaks and calms my heart and mind. I am reassured by His word. Our Lord gives me His Mother for my mother. She strengthens me daily.
Lord, I know not what you have in store for me this coming year.
I face it with full knowledge and confidence that You will be beside me.
You will be my strength and comfort.
You may test me, but You will give me the grace to endure the test.
And I shall Rejoice!
