"A LIFE OF FAITH" (Gal 2:20)

 
"Hence all depends on faith, everything is grace." —Romans 4:16
 

All depends on faith — marriage, parenting, finances, health, education, happiness, security, etc. Therefore, in every area of our lives, we should seek opportunities to act in faith. We should not try to maintain the status quo but break new ground by acting in faith.

Would daily prayer with your spouse take faith? If so, do it. Would having another child take faith? Whatever it takes, walk by faith (2 Cor 5:7). Where are the faith opportunities in your life? Would it take more faith to quit or continue your job? Would home-schooling your children take faith? How much money would you need to give to God's work to be in a position of faith? Are your insurance policies "crutches" limiting the free exercise of your faith? Is your savings account preventing you from believing in the Lord's promise to give us our daily bread? (Mt 6:11)

In our culture, we try to be in control as much as possible and operate by faith as infrequently as possible. Rather, we should maximize our faith opportunities, seeking to walk by faith and not by sight.

 
Prayer: Jesus, may my life not be my own but a life in faith in You, "Who loved me" and gave Yourself for me (Gal 2:20).
Promise: "The Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment all that should be said." —Lk 12:12
Praise: Jesus revealed His Sacred Heart and passionate love for humanity to St. Margaret Mary. She was reviled and disbelieved by many, but the love of Jesus sustained her. She said: "I need nothing but God, and to lose myself in the heart of Jesus."
 
 
 
Nihil obstat: Reverend Ralph J. Lawrence, April 10, 1999

The Nihil obstat and Imprimatur are a declaration that a book or pamphlet is considered to be free from doctrinal or moral error. It is not implied that those who have granted the Nihil obstat and Imprimatur agree with the contents, opinions, or statements expressed.
