Jesus I trust in you. Easy to say, hard to do.
I am not the Savior: I do not want to be the Savior, yet at times I think I am. Urgh.
I just want to trust in you Jesus.
Can I be the bird? I want to be the bird, fluttering overhead, dropping seeds all around the troubled. Showing others the path to see your ways, grace and goodness.
I watched a bird drop down in the water today and bring up a fish. How did he become so precious to dive from the sky into the water and not have the fish be gone? One focus. One effort. That is what I want too.
Oh Lord, I pray for the right words, actions, steps, thoughts. I pray your Holy Spirit will speak out in my voice and deliver the message of hope from the core of your most Sacred Heart – pierced for our sakes, now pouring forth water and blood to wash over our sins and bring us to the Father.
Help us as we work together to be strengthened with courage, humility, and charity. Let us leave depression, desolation and despair on the roadside. Peter and John spoke with authority and the power of your name. May we not only continue to seek you but also to be strengthened and receive your gifts as they did in this time of waiting until Pentecost. Come Holy Spirit!
