dc.description.abstractThe overriding theme in today's readings seem to be, our belief and trust in God. The first reading from Acts makes me stop and consider or ask, "When in my life have I failed to recognize God or failed to see that an event was a blessing from God." This reading also reminds me of my need to truly find God in all things and to stay prayerful in my journey, living life according to the example of Jesus and to follow God's hopes and desires for me.||"Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice before him; with trembling rejoice." When I read this line in Psalms I get a feeling of overwhelming thankfulness for all that God has blessed me with, including a rich relationship and belief in the power of God. I am thankful for my past and current blessings and am thankful for blessings I know that I will receive in the future.||I love the stories about the relationship between Thomas and Jesus. Early in my life I remember thinking,"I wonder why Thomas had difficulty believing when he actually lived at the time of Jesus." For me, Thomas is that part of me which questions, " Is this my will or is this God's will". " How do I know this is God's will for me?" " Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?" I have to remind myself about the power of quiet prayer. I want to trust and go in "a way" that, if it is God's will for me, (whatever the IT might be) life will unfold according to God's plan. " Do not let your hearts be troubled you have faith in God; have faith also in me."en_US
