Daily Reflection: “For they are life to those who find them, bringing health to one’s whole being. With all vigilance guard your heart, for in it are the sources of life.” [Proverbs 4:22-23] Matthew Kelly refers to becoming “the best version of yourself” in many of his writing and speaking. To do this, we must be attentive to God, through prayer, scripture and meditation. We find our purpose when we seek God in all that we do. Matthew Kelly writes these words today, Solomon wrote them thousands of years ago. Notice that God’s message hasn’t changed; we are the best we can be when we follow His plan for our lives. My Lord and my God, I am at my best when I follow your divine plan for me. You created me, You know me, You want what is best for me. Thank you Lord, for loving me.

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving care and protection. We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us in the coming seasons. Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain. You alone bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we thank you in advance, for you are our only refuge. We ask this through Christ Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
