Big Dreams!

Today’s the day!

Today is the day I announce something that has been almost four years in the making!

And I must admit to being a tad bit anxious!

A tad bit nervous!

But a WHOLE LOT of excited!!

I’ve hinted to you before, my dear bloggity-blog readers, that I have had something “in the making.”

Subtly of course…

(Some of which may be re-read by clicking here.)

But it’s taken me more time to launch my dream than I’d anticipated.

Why?

Dear Sr. Mary-Agnes,

Scattered within the many notes of my journals I have written unannotated words of various bloggers & authors reminding me frequently how…

“We desperately need each other.” 

“Jesus never intended for us to live the Christian life alone.”

“The Lord God said: It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suited to him.”

Genesis 2:18

Yet, so often I forget just how much I need others.

Certainly I know that we need to live our lives out with others & throughout Scripture God tells us to “lift one another up!”

And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding… “

Colossians 1:9

Indeed, “we need one another to get through this life.”

Most especially God tells us to pray for one another.

“that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”

1 Timothy 2:1-2

Undeniably, He would not tell us to pray for one another if he didn’t intend to answer those prayers.

“Brothers and sisters:  We are always courageous, although we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight.  Yet we are courageous, and we would rather leave the body and go home to the Lord.  Therefore, we aspire to please him, whether we are at home or away.  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may receive recompense, according to what he did in the body, whether good or evil. ”     2 Corinthians 5:6-10 

what is your core intention?

is it fear? or is it love?

“I desire to please Him because one day I am going to stand before Him.”

And so begins an inspiring homily given by our pastor, Fr. Larry Richards. 

Won’t you take a walk of faith & click (on his name) to listen along…
