Thoughts On Grace. It is taking the time to rest in the Lord; to just be instead of do. In our rush, rush world resting in God is a priority. I try to spend quiet time with the Lord daily. Silence nourishes the soul. The constant cacophony of the world can leave us drained if we don't pull ourselves away from it regularly.
I love praying the Rosary. On Wednesday I went to Church early to pray the Rosary with my fellow parishioners before Mass. The group meets on Wednesdays and Fridays. Praying the Rosary before Mass seems to open and prep my heart to receive God's Word. I notice that when I pray it before Mass I am always flooded with peace and love and this Wednesday was no different. I especially enjoyed the Gospel reading Wednesday about Mary and Martha because the Lord has given me this as a personal word many times. Whenever I hear or read the words: "Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her" I am either flooded with the Holy Spirit or moved to tears. For in this world that is endlessly rushing - I sit at the Lord's feet ....and it shall not be taken from me. This is His promise and in faith I believe and trust His words to me. They have not failed me yet and never will... for our God is faithful and true.
