In the sacraments we swear to God that we believe, and that we will live a faithful life to the Lord, giving ourselves completely to him. This means every aspect of our life: Sunday’s and Monday through Saturday, the boardroom, the family room and the bedroom. There is to be no picking and choosing which part of our lives we give to Christ.

It’s been a wild journey this morning. I’m never really sure what I’m going to write (type) here and trust that the Holy Spirit will guide me – someway, somehow.

So in reading from the 8th Chapter of Genesis – as Noah and his families time on the ark ends, I am struck with two words used – ark and covenant (I am jumping ahead one day when God enters into His covenant with Noah) and so my mind began to think about the Ark of the Covenant. So I started researching articles about the Ark but nothing really stood out to me, so then I searched about how many covenants God entered into in the Bible. Catholic tradition tells me 6, the first with Adam and now the second with Noah…When the LORD smelled the sweet odor, the LORD said to himself: Never again will I curse the ground because of human beings, since the desires of the human heart are evil from youth; nor will I ever again strike down every living being, as I have done.

In researching the articles, I came across this article (see hyperlink above) written by Brian Pizzalato and I will end with this hyperlink. It is a very interesting article and it is where I pulled my opening quote from this morning. How I wish everyone would live with that thought in mind. God is not only Sunday, but God should be everyday, on our every thought, on our every action.

Do something great for our Lord today – offer a sacrifice of praise…
How shall I make a return to the LORD
for all the good he has done for me?
The cup of salvation I will take up,
and I will call upon the name of the LORD.

God’s will, not mine, be done.

Be not afraid; just have faith.

Jesus, I trust in You.

He must increase; I must decrease
