REFLECT – “God has a plan for your life” – I had heard that many times growing up, but it didn’t mean much to me. So I planned what I thought would be my happy life, and told God what it should look like. He gently smiled and let me think I had it all under control. Then I encountered His personal love for me in the Eucharist, and everything changed. He spoke peace and mercy into my heart and loved me so irresistibly that I suddenly had a great desire to give my entire life to Him without reserve as a consecrated religious. He helped me see the sacredness of my own life, and He gave me the hope that I could share this with others. Since entering the Sisters of Life, He has fulfilled His promises of faithfulness one hundred-fold and continues to amaze and draw me closer with His love every day. His plans for me have been the greatest gift of my life.
SHARE – Spend some time with the Lord alone today, either in the silence of your own home, a church, or in Adoration if you can. Ask the Lord to reveal His plan for your life a little more today.
