"For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin,
it will destroy itself.
But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them;
you may even find yourselves fighting against God.”
If we seek to dwell in the house of the Lord, then what we endeavor must be of the Lord.
One more thing: Do you ever find yourself butting your head up against a wall time and time again? For me, it's usually when I'm trying to get something accomplished. It's those times that I have to step back and evaluate if that activity or project is of the Lord. Have I taken on too much? Am I neglecting my vocation of marriage and motherhood? Is this activity going to bring me closer to the house of the Lord?
Prayer: Father in heaven, guide my actions that they may be of you and reflect my desire to one day be with you in your house. St. Bernadette, pray for me. Amen.
