The Conversion of St. Paul
I can certainly identify with St. Paul. Paul went along thinking he was in the right by persecuting Christians. It took a major blow from the Lord to wake him up to the error of his ways. I often feel like Christ puts blinders on me when I'm getting off track. He humbles me so that I must reach out to him to lead me, just as Paul had to be led to a new way of life, a life in Christ.
One more thing: Jesus tells me today to go out and proclaim the Gospel. Conversion isn't something to be held on to in secret. Conversion is something I need to shout from the roof tops and actively live so that others see it in me. Conversion is a call to be Christ to others, especially my children, and Christ gives me the strength and the grace to fulfill this mission.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for the gift of your salvation. Help me always reach out to you to lead me in spreading the good news, especially to the little lives you've entrusted to me! In your precious name I pray, Amen. St. Paul, pray for me.
