Wigs Word of God Today 7-11-2013
Be an instrument in their knowing peace if they appear to have no peace.
As you enter a house, wish it peace. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; if not, let your peace return to you. Whoever will not receive you or listen to your words—go outside that house or town and shake the dust from your feet. Matthew 10:12-14
Genesis 44:18-21, 23-29; 45:1-5, Psalm 105 & Matthew 10:7-15
We learn early in life to separate from people who do not wish peace upon you, your family or your friends opting for hostility filled with challenges and spite. For some reason I’ve always been drawn to help those who reject me unwilling to say yes to their purpose maintaining the relationship to share Christ’s Salvation identified by my patience living His Truth. From the “get go” I’ve been surrendered to not hesitating consecrating my life to a life of Christ in thoughts, actions and deeds willing to be loud when needed and quiet by Truth’s accord. I remind myself constantly not to judge another while pouring prayer intentions their way in a constant desire to plead their conversion.
I too just as you can be an instrument in their knowing peace if they appear to have no peace or not know why peace leads to Eternal Life by living peace in faith, hope and love of charity. I feel a calm unlike any point in my life knowing the dust of life comes from people who are stubborn in their ways by the desires our selfish heart yearns for. Like all of you, I’ve lived this selfishness to the point of starvation, sordidness and stupidity placing pointless needs ahead of serving the common good. You can see the hunger by the fuel we obtain or lack in our daily quest to survive the dust that has surrounded and clouded our good judgment. Even for the sleaze of life we must seek to wash in the Light of Christ’s Love lending not to judgment but to the hand of pleasantness polishing the Spirit to make known the mystery of the Gospel bar none. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray to share Your Son’s peace in the dust of humanity. Novena prayers day two for Mimi. Novena prayers day four for my brother-in-law Johnny. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers. LORD from Psalm 44:21-22, 26, I chant- “If we had forgotten the name of our God, stretched out our hands to another god, Would not God have discovered this, God who knows the secrets of the heart? For our soul has been humiliated in the dust; our belly is pressed to the earth.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
To rinse the dust clean– Matthew 10:7-15
Shake the dust
Rid your lust
Surrender to trust
Ending selfish fuss
Peace settles to show
God’s love to know
As Jesus yearns to grow
In the seeds you seek to sow
Worthy is your house O’LORD
To rinse the dust clean
Wash us deep O’LORD
