Burdens = BLESSINGS

How could that be? you may ask. It’s all about how you approach it. Everything happens for a reason, and what matters is how we handle it. Turn to GOD because He takes care of us!

Wipe away Worry with WORSHIP

At first, I anticipated this week of preparation as overwhelming: getting ready for Holy Week • practicing my readings ~ including narrating the long Gospel ~ for Palm Sunday Mass at Church this weekend • revising my PowerPoint as my proposal defense is the next step in my dissertation • training for my new job. Rather than referring to these priorities as problems, I must remain undaunted by praising the LORD at all times for leading me to this point and seeking the HOLY SPIRIT for guidance to persevere.

Fade away Fear for FAITH

No negativity or fear are allowed here ~ just a positive perspective with the following Ls:

LORD * LOVE * LIVE * LIFE * LEAD * LISTEN

Sometimes, silence is of the essence, so our Heavenly Shepherd deserves our time when we open our eyes, ears, minds, hearts and souls to Him, ready to receive His presence … and His message. Let’s build our relationship with the most important One of all: the LORD JESUS CHRIST, by communicating with Him through prayer. Our prayers aren’t simply to tell and ask Him about our wants and needs; they’re to seek and find out about His will and way for us.

Amend Anxiety, Anguish & Anger into ANSWERS that come only from GOD & be content even when not certain

More Reflections from Rediscovering Catholicism

Now I realize why I may not have turned on my music every time I drive, shower or study lately: I need #silence to #communicate w/ #GOD in order to #listen to Him #speak! ~ #sign from Chapter 13: #Daily #Prayer 🙏👂☝️

Chapter 14 about The #Mass provides me with a #greater #appreciation for all parts of the #Liturgy & the #Eucharist, including my #ministry & #service, my next one being this weekend for #PalmSunday #readings & #Gospel. 💒💖👏

Which do we live by: His #Word or the #world? I encourage you to check out these first two pages of Chapter 15: #TheBible & to make the #Bible your life’s practice for #happiness #comfort #strength! 📖🙏☝️✌️💪😍
