Listen to Him

While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud cast a shadow over them, then from the cloud came a voice that said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” – Matthew 17:5 Listen to Him. Wow. There it is. Listen to Him. Listen to Jesus. That listening… Read More ›

The Better Part

“There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” – Luke 10:42 I have often been more Mary than Martha. Prayer time is a priority for me. Or at least it was. Since this pandemic thing took control of our lives, my prayer… Read More ›

Love Forever And Two Days

For whoever does the will of my heavenly Father is my brother, and sister, and mother. – Mt 12:50 My husband and I are celebrating our 41st anniversary today. 41 years that have gone by so fast, in the blink of an eye. We are so blessed and we have not ever taken our relationship… Read More ›

Trust in Jesus

At that time Jesus said in reply, “I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike.” (Mt 11:25) Pharisees rejected Jesus. They closed their hearts to Him. Pride shut them off from Jesus. … Read More ›

Do Not Be Afraid

So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. – Matthew 10:31 “So do not be afraid.” Jesus tells us that a lot. In fact it is in the Bible over 300 times. I guess God knows we need that reassurance. Do not be afraid. We are not alone even though it… Read More ›

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” – Matthew 16:15 Who do you say that Jesus is?  Who do you know Jesus to be? Not just His name but who He is.  I have related to Jesus in different ways throughout my spiritual journey. There are times when I have… Read More ›

Jesus Knows Our Hearts

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.” – Matthew 2:21 Many like to give lip service to being a follower of Christ. Many like looking good, too. The question we need to ask ourselves is… Read More ›

Jesus is Peace

Even all the hairs of your head are counted. – Matthew 10:30 In this Sunday’s gospel reading, Jesus tells us to not be afraid. He tells us that we are worth more than sparrows. (Mt 10:31) These words come at the right time. (Of course, all of Jesus’ words come at the right time). But… Read More ›

Loving Our Neighbor

“The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31 It is easy to understand the verse before this one – to love the Lord your God with all your heart. It is easy to do, too, I might add. God is so good…. Read More ›
