God’s love – the anchor of our lives
  • 1 Timothy 3:14-16
  • Psalm 111:1-6
  • Luke 7:31-35

When we think about the mysteries of the universe, I often wonder; are we worthy or righteous enough to be loved? Today’s first reading reminds us of our obligations to the Lord. While God has graciously granted us the freedom of life, it is the church that will light the path to live a righteous life. It is only through Jesus that we are able to unite with the Spirit and experience the mysteries of his Godliness. As I attempted to comprehend the love of our Father, a story that deeply touched me came to my mind: the story of the Footprints: “As I was walking on the beach with God…I witnessed two pairs of foot prints that belonged to me and God. During the darkest moments in my life, I only saw one set of footprints, so I questioned God why he would abandon me. He said, “My child, I love you, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then I carried you”. During our darkest hours when we question; “God, where are you?” Or “why me God?”, just remember that God is with us, he is carrying us.

Prayer: Abba Father, grant us the grace to be united with your Spirit. May your love be the anchor of our lives. Amen.
