Daily Meditation - Finding God

Of course we cannot bring about an experience of God through our own efforts. Such can only be given to us. It is sheer gift. But when we wait with open hands and undefended heart, God DOES come. We do experience God's presence. We have God's word on it.

"When you look for me, you will find me. Yes, when you seek me with all your heart, you will find Me with you, says the Lord" (Jer 29:13-14).

Daily Meditation – A (New) Morning Offering

A Morning Offering

Lord, through the intercession of Mary, Joseph, and all the angels and saints, I offer you today all my prayers, desires, works, joys and sufferings.  May I faithfully seek your will as you envision and reveal it to me in the present moment circumstances of this day.  For through it, I will strive to accept each moment with gratitude and as a purposeful, precious gift from your hands.

Daily Meditation - Becoming True

Our eyes should be on God alone, and with BOUNDLESS confidence. When God desires to take something from our hands, it is invariably because God desires that we become more truly ourselves. God is more faithful to us, than we are to ourselves.

"I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly" (Jn 10:10).

Daily Meditation – No risk with God 

[The following is part ten of a ten part series of meditations based on insights and excerpts from the book He Leadeth Me by American Jesuit Father Walter Ciszek. The book details his faith journey as spent for 23 years in Soviet prisons and labor camps of Siberia. A truly amazing testament of faith and wisdom!!] Consider the following excerpt:

“For what can ultimately trouble the soul that accepts every moment of every day as a gift from the hands of God and strives always to do his will? ‘If God is for us, who can stand against us?’  Nothing, not even death, can separate us from God. Nothing can touch us that does not come from his hand, nothing can trouble us because all things come from his hand. Is this too simple, or are we just afraid really to believe it, to accept it fully and in every detail of our lives, to yield ourselves up to it in total commitment? This is the ultimate question of faith, and each must answer it for himself in the quiet of his heart and the depths of his soul. But to answer it in the affirmative is to know a peace, to discover a meaning to life that surpasses all understanding.”

p. 201-202, He Leadeth Me, By Father Walter J. Ciszek, S.J.
