Today friends and family let us reflect in our calling. In whom do we place our trust? People put their trust in many things or souls, are we trusting in ourselves, in material things or in Jesus Christ? We all have a temptation to put ourselves at the center, to believe that we are the axis of the universe, to believe that we alone build our lives or to think that our life can only be happy if built on possessions, money, or power. But we all that it is not so.
Certainly, possessions, money and power can give a momentary thrill, the illusion of being happy, but they end up possessing us and making us always want to have more, never satisfied. We need to be very serious and strong about our calling. Whether you are the father or mother of the family, that is your calling, a religious person in consecrated life or not but you are in your calling. Know what fills you up. Know what desires do you you have that should be fulfilled by God Himself instead of what your mind thinks and body wishes for.
Take time in your prayer corner and have a direct communication with our loving father who will not even judge you. Ask Him to be with you in all your doings and though the Holy Spirit realize the importance of our calling. Look into your heart and ask yourself, where do I really put my trust in? How many times have I let the Spirit of the Lord down by choosing my ways than following the Lords commands? Enjoy your lunch!!!
