BEWARE OF WOLVES IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING

LOVE THE STRANGER

PRAYER: Lord of life, teach me how to be a true friend to those in need.

I most definitely need to learn to pray for my enemies (the real ones and those I perceive to be my enemies) instead of letting them get under my skin and causing me to hate. I know that just puts a blot on my soul and robs me of the inner peace that I need!

You desire sincerity of heart; and You endow my innermost being with wisdom. --Ps 51:8

WHY ARE OUR SOLDIERS HONORED?

REFLECTION: Soldiers are honored becasue they are prepared to die to save others. Jesus does not condemn soldiers who fight in a just war. A soldier does not hate those who oppose him in battle. They are public enemies of his nation and must be defeated. It is his duty to defend others.

PRAYER: Jesus, help me to love my personal enemies and to pray for them.

Store up treasures for yourselves in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves cannot break in and steal--Mt 6:20

FIND JOY IN CHRIST'S WORDS

REFLECTION: Jesus taught us to find joy, not by looking for it, but by listening to His words in a spirit of humble surrender. Enjoyment sought for its own sake is a self centered pursuit. Joy is more a by-product of our intimacy with God.

PRAYER: Dear Jesus, purify my mind that I may seek first Your kingdom. I am not sure what that actually means, but I will put my trust in Your intimate presence; and You will guide me

DO NOT PULL UP A WEED TOO QUICKLY

Take delight in the Lord, and He will grant you what your heart desires--Ps 37:4

I Will Live Joyfully, No Matter What

REFLECTION. The teaching of a great 15th-century mystic, named Blessed Julian of Norwich, inspires us this day with true wisdom.

She wrote, "The greatest honor you can give the Almighty God, greater than all your sacrifices and mortifications, is to live joyfully because of the knowledge of His love."

PRAYER. Dear Holy Spirit, fill my soul with gladness.

Trust the Lord forever, for in Him you have an everlasting rock--Is 26:4

Lift Up Your Thoughts

REFLECTION. What you sow in your mind, you will reap in your emotions. What you sow in
your emotions, you will reap in your actions. And what you sow in your actions, you will
reap in your destiny.

Toxic thoughts produce toxic emotions. Focus on the quality of your thoughts. Be your
own best friend; control your thoughts.

PRAYER. Keep me on the straight and narrow, Lord. Help me to control my thinking.

Stop your weeping! She is not dead, she is asleep--Lk 8:52

God Can Perform Miracles in Your Life

REFLECTION. Do not weep for yourself if you are weak. No matter what your faults may be
they are as nothing to the God of Power and Mercy.

The Lord will bring healing if you ask, and the fullness of joy. Turn your life over to Him
and He will deliver you from your misery.

PRAYER. Thank You for my faith in You, Lord. Help me in my need.

Prudence will protect you, and understanding will watch over you--Prov 2:11

SPEND WISELY THAT YOUR FUTURE MAY BE SECURE

REFLECTION: Fiscal conservatives tend to live longer. Some of them even enjoy life more because they have savings in their old age.

But you will have greater peace than the richest person on earth if you learn to put your trust in the Lord

PRAYER: Lord, enable me to place my trust in You, and not in riches

Exalted be the Lord Who delights to see His servant in peace--Ps 35: 27

YOU ARE LOVED MORE THAN YOU KNOW

REFLECTION: it's true. When someone loves another person, he delights in helping and protecting that person.

The Bible proclaims the truth that God loves each of us with an infinite, unchanging love. This knowledge is a joy forever. Relish it today

PRAYER: Dear God, I trust Your love. Fill my soul with joy

Guide me in Your truth and instruct me, for You are God, my Savior, and in You I hope all the day long--Ps 25:5

Grant them your protection so that those who love Your Name may rejoice in You--Ps 5: 12

PROTECT YOUR MIND FROM FEAR

REFLECTION: St Peter said, " Grow in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2Pet 3:18). You can do this by blocking out needless fear.

St Teresa of Avila said, " Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing cause you to fear. God is unchanging love, God alone suffices."

PRAYER: Jesus, help me to banish all fear, and trust You.

" Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God" --1 Jn 4:7

SPIRITUAL INTIMACY IS YOURS FOR THE ASKING

REFLECTION: Prayer is one way to grow closer not only to God but also to those nearest to you. Prayer makes life more bearable, and yes, even more glorious.

"If I have...all the faith to move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.--1 Cor 13:2

TRUE LOVE IS IN THE WILL

REFLECTION: The will says yes or no. Finding a way to work through problems in a marriage can be difficult. Sometimes it is downright infuriating. Bu once you say yes to love, your life will become easier.

It takes a vow to keep a person on the right path. Don't give up because of bad feelings. True love is in the will

PRAYER: Dear Lord, give me the strength to forgive, and to have a sense of humor as I plug along

Sing to the Lord a new song, His praise in the assembly of the Saints.--ps 149:1

God wants you to enjoy your precious life. So cheer up!

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, give me the grace to choose happiness

Hope will not be doomed to disappointment, because the love of God has been pouted into our hearts through the Holy Spirit--Rom 5:5

THE LOVE OF GOD IS YOUR STRENGTH

REFLECTION: Did you know that children do better in school when their parents encourage them to have a hopeful, positive attitude?

Parents have the power to give their children a gift more valuable than anything money can buy, namely the gift of hope and encouragement. A pat on the back goes a long way.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to feel Your encouragement, as I am encouraging others

" In my anguish, I cried out to the Lord and...He heard my voice"--Ps 18: 7

TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS

REFLECTION: Scripture tells us that love is patient. It is so true. The service of love often takes the form of waiting, which can feel like a slow death at times.

The earth waits for rain, the bud waits for warmth, and the soul waits for a union with God. Healing is yours for the asking.

PRAYER: Dear Jesus, help me to carry my cross with courage

"The prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up:--Jas 5:15

IT PAYS TO TRUST IN THE POWER OF PRAYER

REFLECTION: Here is a prayer taken from a confederate soldier's knapsack: "I asked for strength that I might achieve great things, but I was made weak that I might ask for God's strength. I didn't get exactly what I asked for, but did get everything I hoped for, and today, I feel richly blessed"

PRAYER: Dear God, give me the grace to be more trusting

"God is faithful, and will not allow you to be tried beyond your strength"--1 Cor 10:13

PERSEVERE IN YOUR GOOD INTENTIONS; YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID

REFLECTION: Did you know that babies teach us a lot about perseverance? For instance, babies can't read books about how to walk. They just keep standing up, and falling down, over and over until finally they take their first steps, and everyone rejoices with them. Perseverance pays. Hang in there.

PRAYER: Help me Lord, to be more faithful to Your holy Will.

Do not ley tour hearts be troubled...Place your trust in God--Jn 14:1

BEING TRUE TO YOUR INNER SELF IS EASY

REFLECTION: The late Mother Theresa said: "If you are kind, people may take advantage of you...be kind anyway. If you are trusting, people may try to cheat you...be trusting anyway. If you are happy, people may become jealous...be happy anyway" This is good advice , coming from a woman who knew the truth and lived it

PRAYER: Teach me, Lord, to hear your voice within me, and to follow Your inspiration
