Questions For The Heart
Some thoughts that have found their way to my little ear that I would like to echo back into the world:
Do we allow others to change for the better? Or do we hold who they are now or have been against them?
Do we desire good for others, especially those we do not like or agree with? Or would we rather see some people fail and experience bad things?
Do we accept people as the beautiful creation of God that they are and love them in spite of their faults? Do we pray for those who are in most need of prayer?
Do we strive to love as God loves. Do we love as God asks us to love others and Himself?
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole strength. [Deuteronomy 6:5]
Are we living what we know to be true? And if we are not, why?
How far above our ways are Your ways, O Lord, and how far above our thoughts are Your thoughts. Help us to love as we should, dear Jesus, and guide us all safely home to you. Grant us the gift to live in your beautiful, and most loving, Sacred Heart. That our hearts may be consumed within yours, burning with Your love for all the world and those in it.
Holy Spirit, move in us and open our hearts to know and do the Father's will.
Blessed Mary, pray for us! We are your children and are always in great need of our Mother.
