“YOUR LIGHT WILL BREAK FORTH LIKE THE DAWN” (Isa 58:8)
????Tob 11:5-15; Ps 146:1b, 2, 6c, 7, 8-9a, 9c-10 (R.v.1b); Mark 12:35-37
Did you say AMEN to that? And so shall it be in your life through Christ our Lord. Amen.
All you need to do is to persevere in faith in God. The family of Tobit gives us an example of that. The wife of Tobit, Anna, has been carrying the family burden patiently, and eagerly looking forward to God’s intervention (cf. Tob 11:5). Imagine her joy at witnessing that divine intervention, such that like Simeon, she sang her ‘Nunc Dimittis’ in tears (cf. Tob 11:9).
That is the kind of joy that comes with waiting for the Lord. I pray for you today that God may also grant you many reasons to shed tears of joy like Anna through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Never allow your failures and burdens of life to push you into making wrong choices in life. Remember that Jesus is the Lord and Master of all. With him at your right side, you shall be a victor in all your affairs (see Mark 12:35-37).
So be calm and vigilant (1 Pet 5:7) that you may not give in to the temptation of giving up. Victory is ensured for those who persevere in Christ Jesus (cf. Rom 8:37).
May God grant us the grace of perseverance, which will keep us focused on God without being distracted by any kind of deception through Christ our Lord. Amen.
I wish you a miraculous and happy day. Peace be with you.
