NOVENA OF TRUST - Day Seven
"From refusals and reluctances in accepting Your will.
Deliver me, Jesus."
After allowing this petition to "marinate" a little, I can see the reluctances to God's will in my life. The times I have kept His desires at arms length, or the times that I have been incredibly slow to move on something that I feel is clearly what God is asking of me.
I remember years ago speaking to a priest friend about something I felt God was asking of me and Father simply looked at me and said, "What are you waiting for."
If I am honest with myself, I was waiting for God to change His mind!
God's will is not always our will. But God's will for our lives is the only path to true and lasting happiness. His will should be our only desire!
Whatever God is asking of you today, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Saint Pope John Paul II, pray for us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
