FRIDAY OF THE SECOND WEEK OF EASTER APRIL 24, 2020





MASS READINGS:


....."For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin,

it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them;

you may even find yourselves fighting against God.” (Acts 5:38-39)


REFLECTION:


Have you ever been in a situation when you can't figure out where you are? The day is ending, the sun has set and you are in a neighborhood that has no street lights and some street signs cannot be read.

Discerning God's will sometimes is like driving in the dark. We are too close to activities or dreams that we think are from God but we are not quite sure.


God is the light in the darkness: we need to stay focused. God sees the big picture and everything falls into place. And this is how we should approach things, persons, events and circumstances that we don't fully understand. If it is God's will, it will flourish; but if it isn't, then it will not. "For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves fighting against God.”


Sometimes we are biased or prejudiced and fail to see that God can work outside the boundaries we have set for ourselves or for Him. We limit God and therefore do not understand or cooperate with Him. The graces God gives us to do His work are needed daily. Everyday we need to approach God for a fresh supply of His will, His graces for us. We are to rely on Him alone and He will direct us in His ways. We are not to force our plans but be reminded that God is involved in every detail of our lives.


During dark times, I am in awe how I receive affirmation from God.


How has God spoken to you in your darkest moments?


God Bless You.
