Alive in Christ

Heavenly Father, from the very beginning you planned for us to be obedient, happy children here on earth, and together with you in heaven someday. No matter how many obstacles our willfulness and disobedience put in your path, you continue to show mercy and provide a new way for us to journey back to you, making us alive in Christ.

"The cross of Christ, embraced with love, never brings sadness with it, but joy, the joy of being saved and of doing a little of what he did on the day of his death."
- Pope Francis

Seeking God's Will

When we pray we ought to be trusting in God and ultimately seeking his perfect and most holy will for any given situation. We ought to allow God to be God.

— from Wrapped Up

Also: we must remember to pray that God remove any doubt, anxiety, need to control...and that He give us a stronger faith in His Divine Providence...for with God, everything that happens to us has a purpose...for our good.

Perpetual Gift

We are so grateful to God for the gift of forgiveness that we never forget its liberating powers and feel a need to share it with others. Forgiving others and ourselves is discovering a gift that truly keeps on giving.

— from Wrapped Up
- also, you can find many, many quotes in the Holy Bible about forgiveness...
when was the last time you opened and read from this precious Book?

Light in the Darkness

Keep the light of faith ever burning—for Jesus alone is the way that leads to the Father. He alone is the life dwelling in our hearts. He alone is the light that enlightens the darkness. Be not afraid. Christ will not deceive us.
—Bl. Teresa of Calcutta

Obedience

I want to do what you ask of me, in the way you ask, for as long as you ask, because you ask it.   —Pope Clement XI

A little mercy makes the world less cold

A little mercy makes the world less cold and more just...
We need to rightly understand the mercy of God, a merciful Father, who has a lot of patience with each one of us...and is always ready to forgive our transgressions and offenses...

The prophet Isaiah, says that even if our sins are bright red, God's mercy can make them white as snow. Do we believe this? Do we hold an ounce of doubt in our hearts? If we doubt God's infinity...then it is by our own mistrust and lack of faith that God's divine plans for us don't always work in our lives...

I learned from a holy priest that there are four impediments to receiving healing in our lives:
1.- doubt 2.- weak faith 3.- fear 4.- unforgiving hearts

Are we ready to 1.- believe 2.- grow in faith 3.- be unafraid and 4.- forgive?
If so, then God's mercy will be ours for the asking, as we minister to others who have yet to experience this warmth...this charity...this love.

A little mercy will then truly bring warmth to a cold/indifferent world....

God Is Love

Everything we have—every blessing, every talent—is a gift from our Father. The only thing that's all ours is our sin.

— from Tweet Inspiration

Are we ready to give up sin and embrace the Father's LOVE??? It is ours - no matter what...

Forgive For Love

Praised be you, my Lord, for those who forgive for love of your love and who bear sickness and trial. Blessed are those who endure in peace, for by you, Most High, they will be crowned. –St. Francis
