"Speak Lord, your servant is listening"
At Jones Manor, a lady patient approached me as I entered the door and asked me to say a prayer and bless her and hold her face because she was suffering from a toothache. As I blessed her she said “I believe , Fr. Archie. This is the Lord’s way of telling me stop cursing and not to say bad words anymore when I get upset.”
These are simple events in our lives when The Lord speaks to us.
Personal experiences of the Lord inviting us to do His will.
Special moments of the Lord ‘CALLING.’ us.
Like Mathew in the Gospel today let us be open to the Lord’s invitation to follow Him, to serve and to Love.
In the words of the child Sammuel let us also say: “Speak Lord, your servant is Listening.”
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
