Father Wade Menezes
In John 14:1 Jesus says, "Do not let your hearts be troubled." But do these words find a home within you? Within me? Or are they silenced by the clamor of other voices that rage interiorly - voices of guilt or shame, dissatisfaction or selfishness, fear or worry?
Life especially the abundant life in Jesus Christ, is not for wimps. To live it well, it requires receptivity of heart, trust in God, and surrender to all that He longs to entrust to us.
And when we are willing to live this kind of life, in the midst of every circumstance or trial, reversal or collapse, pain or suffering - we experience His provision - the grace of the present moment.
