Thought for today:
It can be so easy to distract ourselves so we don’t think about our sadness. We can be too quick to push the hurt down and run to something else to cover it up. Sometimes its easier not to pray so that we don’t have to face the things we don’t want to think about. Those are the places God wants to come into. He wants your mess. He wants to reach into your heart and fill that God-sized-hole with His love. Its okay if you don’t know what that love feels like. Ask Him to know that love, to feel it, and to have it heal your heart forever.
Action for today:
Spend 10 minutes in silence today. Invite God to come and sit with you. Don’t worry about speaking to Him or doing anything, just breathe and let His presence be enough.
Prayer for today:
God, I want to know Your love deeply and intimately. I invite you into my heart today.

Be a Hero today – #ShareJesus:
Invite someone to either pray with you, or go to mass with you. If you’re going on a retreat, going to a prayer meeting, or doing some kind of special devotion, invite someone to go with you to that. Your invitation might be the first step in helping that person know the love of God more deeply in their lives.
