The Pastor’s Corner

Dear Parishioners-

As we strive to grow spiritually, we are reminded to build up our trust in God. Trusting in God means laying down your life – with all its joys, sorrows and contradictions – and conforming yourselves to God’s Will. Are you afraid to trust God with your life? Do you give him your problems but get frustrated when he doesn’t do what you want? It is only when we have complete trust in God that our growth in holiness can take place.

God is trustworthy.  A trustworthy person has high moral integrity and character. In a world where our leaders and institutions often fail us, God is steadfast and true. We can rely on the thousands of years of history in the Bible that prove God means what he says and says what he means. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He always keeps his promises.

God is capable.  This is probably a fairly obvious statement. Because God can do all things, his capability should never be doubted. Certainly God took excellent care of King David, Job, Moses and others. What makes you think he will not do the same for you? He is certainly interested in forging  a relationship and demonstrating his care for you. God has power over all creation, so he clearly has the ability to accomplish whatever he wishes. He has infinite wisdom, so he knows what you need. More to the point, God loves you with unimaginable intensity so he always wants what is best for you. In trusting God, you show him that he is better suited and more qualified to take care of what you need. Let go and let God!

Are you now ready to trust God?  Start by thanking God. Reflect for a moment on ALL that the Lord has done for you. Everything that he allows to happen to us is ultimately for our good that we might grow to trust him. Remind yourself, as often as you need to, that God is in charge. It can allow you the freedom to cast aside your fears and doubt and enter into union with him. Finally, ask him what he wants you to do with your life next and then …pray for the grace to DO it!
