“Never mistake the uncomfortable feeling of insecurity and the fear of the unknown with the Holy Ghost’s promptings. Sometimes those feelings are simply Satan keeping you stuck where you are because he knows you will have a half-life there. He knows that you will spend half of your life disconnected, discontented and convincing your mind of what its heart will never accept. He knows when you have settled, gave up and didn’t try. Inaction & fear are his greatest weapon, while regret is his second………You can learn big things from small promptings if you listen…..Be patient with God. Have faith in his timing. Listen to the gentle promptings that come to your heart and mind. In time, you will see His hand at work in your life”

Gospel Text: (Lk 7:24-30)

When the messengers of John the Baptist had left,
Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John. 
“What did you go out to the desert to see  a reed swayed by the wind? 
Then what did you go out to see? 
Someone dressed in fine garments? 
Those who dress luxuriously and live sumptuously
are found in royal palaces. 
Then what did you go out to see? 
A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. 
This is the one about whom Scripture says:

    Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
    he will prepare your way before you.

I tell you,
among those born of women, no one is greater than John;
yet the least in the Kingdom of God is greater than he.”
(All the people who listened, including the tax collectors,
who were baptized with the baptism of John,
acknowledged the righteousness of God;
but the Pharisees and scholars of the law,
who were not baptized by him,
rejected the plan of God for themselves.)


Reflect, today, upon that which God is calling you to do or to accept as from Him.  Even if it seems insignificant, don’t reject that initial invitation; rather, embrace it wholeheartedly.  In that embrace you may just find that God blesses you in abundance in ways you never imagined.
