“Be vigilant at all times and pray, that you may have the strength to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:36
Today’s reading hits very close to home. After yesterday, with me starting this new journey on discovering the Rosary, it is just amazing that this is Alleluia from Today’s Mass. I don’t know, maybe the spirit of my Grandmother is making me see the little signs of God’s miracles a little more. I am still fascinated at how timeless and appropriate the words of God always are.
I have never once read the Bible and not felt a connection to the worlds that I was reading. From the time that I was very young until now, the words have always had a meaning to them. It is like an iconic song, there is always a time and a place for it, and it captures a memory. That memory might be different for each person, but that is the key, the Bible is about that relationship with God. Not everyone will have exactly the same relationship with Him. At the end of the day, I think that is what we are all seeking in life. Whatever name you call God, everyone is searching for the best way to return to the source of life. For me, it is this new pathway of praying. It just so happens to be something that my Grandmother prayed on a constant basis, and she was one of the most spiritual people I have ever known. I am only two days into this, and so far, it seems to be working to erode the massive blocks that I have in my mind. It certainly helped me to get my thoughts together to be able to write again. There was so much going on in my head that I could not get it to come out in a manner that resembled an English sentence.
I can only keep trying my best and practicing this new praying regimen. We will see how it goes, and hopefully I will be able to take you with me along the way. I know that at some point the demons will try to keep me from doing it, putting excuses and other roadblocks in my way. I will have to be ready for when that happens and try to prepare myself for it. Its all a work in progress, and I hope that I am making my Grandmother smile.
