NOVENA OF TRUST - Day Fifteen
Deliver me, Jesus."
Have you ever tried to lose weight, pay down personal debt or overcome some struggle in your life? It is HARD and it is WORK!
It often strikes me how easy it is to get ourselves "in over our heads" as they say, and how much patience and trust it takes to get ourselves out. Like I said, it is HARD and it is painful - but, Philippians 4:13! (I am not going to give you this one, you have to look it up!)
We are officially half way through our Novena. Today we end our focus on petitioning Jesus, "Deliver me, Jesus" and tomorrow we switch our focus to our offering, "Jesus, I trust in you."
How fitting it is to finish by petitioning Jesus to deliver us from discouragement. I say this because often to overcome discouragement in our lives we have to fall to our knees and pray, "Jesus, I trust in You."
Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
