Blessed Rafal Chylinski
Isaiah tells us today that a nation who keeps the faith will be protected. Jesus tells us further that we must not just hear and recite our faith, but live it!
One more thing: How do I weather the storms? When things get rocky and the wind starts blowing, do I really live out my faith or simply give it lip service? I've been thinking about that lately as I begin the Advent season. Kids are our greatest imitators. I recently heard some things come out of my kid's mouth that I didn't particularly like. What a wake up call to realize they had learned those words from me! When the baby is crying, someone needs a ride to practice, forgot their homework, is hungry, hits their sister, and talks back, I realize my foundation starts to crumble. I don't want to be just a sham. I want to show my children real faith in real life!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I want to live my life for you, but sometimes my foundation is shaky. Please help me to rely on you during the storms. Send the Holy Spirit to help me remain calm and faithful when things get rocky. In your precious name I pray, Amen. Blessed Rafal Chylinski, pray for me.
