Daily Reflection (10-19-18): “I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; I will declare all your wondrous deeds.” [Psalm 9:2] Prayers of gratitude and thanksgiving are the way to begin and end each day. If we approach our work as “blessing,” then we will find joy in our daily routine. We cannot attract others to our faith in Jesus Christ if we are not joyful, grateful and genuine. We declare the Lord’s wondrous deeds through our own deeds; joyfully sharing our gifts and blessings through our giving, ministry and mission. Thank You Lord for allowing me to serve You and share Your message with others. I am so thankful and blessed to be Your disciple.
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. Mary, Queen of the Apostles, and Patroness of our Diocese, pray for us.
On September 16th we began a new message series called Next S.T.E.P.S. that will be heard not only as the message in our small groups, but also during the homily. This series is an acronym to describe our faith development. Our faith is a journey that we will not complete in this life; a journey that requires us to keep taking our next step. In this series, we will look at the five major STEPS we believe are necessary to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ:
God can draw a person closer to Him at any step, at any time. Therefore, it is important to note that even though S.T.E.P.S. is an acronym, the steps are fluid and can occur in any order, often cycling around in various ways, in different times throughout one’s life. The series presentation follows this format as a way to remind us of the Next STEPS we take as we journey with Jesus.
