Thank you Lord for the reminder that “unless my faith is firm I shall not be firm!”(Is.7:9)
So many times I forget this truth as I try to do everything to make myself strong physically, mentally and emotionally. So many times I forget that everything is fleeting in this world especially my body, including my enemies. So many times I forget that the path to real strength of my person is in having a firm faith in You because only You remain.
Everything passes in this world; nations and peoples, cities and states rise and fall but not You, O Lord! You never stop speaking your words of wisdom into the silence of my heart, calling me to trust in You, to have faith in You as You find ways in saving me from my many problems and miseries. Give me the grace to repent and to harden not my heart when I hear Your voice in Christ Jesus. Amen. Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II,Parokya ni San Juan Apostol at Ebanghelista, Gov. F. Halili Ave., Bagbaguin, Sta. Maria,Bulacan 3022
