Lord, You are awesome and wise; You know us better than we will ever know ourselves. How wonderful of You to give us the precious gifts of ourselves. Each day we have an opportunity to grow in ourselves. If we will only allow You to show us who we are and what You are calling us to be.
Each day so many people are lost because they are trying to be who they are not, wanting to fit the image that society has given; an image that is near impossible to achieve especially when it does not come from the heart.
People become obsessed with looks, money, possessions, and power. These “material” obsessions only bring down those who long to have them, they find themselves in the pits of despair; alone and hungry. Hungry for a love that can never be defined or fulfilled without YOU!
Help each one of us remember with humility and respect, Your words and wants for us
“Come ye to him and be enlightened: and your faces shall not be confounded. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him: and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord shall encamp round about them that fear him: and shall deliver them. O taste, and see that the Lord is sweet: blessed is the man that hopeth in him.”
Book of Psalms 33: 6-9 Douay Rheims Bible
