There will be times in our lives when we will be uncertain of the road ahead of us. For many, this will happen more often than not. Unexpected visitors, whether they are people, places, and/or things, will make their way into our lives. These unexpected visitors may cause us either harm or happiness, but either way, it all will be a way of distracting us from our Lord.

Sometimes we will have tribulation or something that bothers us, and when we ask God for help, it appears as if our prayers are not heard. Do not think in this way. Remember that God has perfect timing for everything. Perhaps we are meant to undergo that in which is in front of us. It is not our will that we follow, but the Will of God. Therefore, be patient and wait for our Lord Jesus to light our way.

“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13).”
Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is very loving and compassionate. He wants only good things for us, even though we are undeserving sinners. There are even some of us, brethren, who believe that we do deserve blessings. This is a lie and false distorted view. All humans sin, hence, all humans are unworthy to blessings. It is from our Lord’s great love and mercy that we receive anything!

“Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).”

Remember beloved to show God how much you care and love Him. We do this by talking to Him at all times. Do not allow a day to pass where you did not speak to Jesus. Even if the prayer is as simple as, “Thank you Lord for this new day!” No prayer is too short or too insignificant to God.

Let us allow Saint Peter to speak to us: “You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen (2 Peter 3:17-18)”.
