All That We Can’t Leave Behind

Ever since then, I heard Jesus’ demand many times in my soul. However, I did not write it down. But
rather, I tried to remove from my mind the idea to leave all behind. (Elizabeth) (Diary Page 13)

Today’s Readings: 
And another said, “I will follow you, Lord,
but first let me say farewell to my family at home.”
Jesus answered him, “No one who sets a hand to the plow
and looks to what was left behind is fit for the Kingdom of God.” (Luke 9)

Prayer Meditation: O Lord, how many times do we try to remove from our minds what it is You are asking of us. The enemy of our souls whispers to us so many excuses- so many thorns choking His Grace in our souls! Worries, fears, anxieties, demands of our state in life- Yes Lord but not yet we say! Lord help us to truly discern Your call in our lives- when to stay and when to go because we do not want to miss the time of our visitation! Let us plow forward for the Kingdom without looking back because our eyes are fixed on You!
