Today will be brief. I have a tight schedule, woke up later than I wanted and need to get to work (and Mass at 6:30AM).
Please pray for Bell Electrical (and myself) as we work our way through an early year drought. We have plenty of work coming up this summer through the fall but have a number of electricians sitting at home right now waiting for that work to start. Please pray we are successful with some of our upcoming bids that will put these electricians back to work.
Please pray for Richard and Megan as the wedding draws closer and the tensions grow tighter.
As I mentioned in a previous blog post, we are heirs to the kingdom. We can look at that one of two ways. We can be those “spoiled” heirs who think everything should be handed to them on a silver platter and not have to work for anything. Or we can pay heed to what is truly expected of us and shown to us in today’s first reading.
Thus says God, the LORD,
who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spreads out the earth with its crops,
Who gives breath to its people
and spirit to those who walk on it:
I, the LORD, have called you for the victory of justice,
I have grasped you by the hand;
I formed you, and set you
as a covenant of the people,
a light for the nations,
To open the eyes of the blind,
to bring out prisoners from confinement,
and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness. IS 42:5-7
Also, spend time contemplating our eleventh station – Jesus is Nailed to the Cross.
God’s will, not mine be done.
Be not afraid.
Jesus, I trust in You.
