Anxious And Worried About Many Things

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Sixteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Anxious and Worried About Many Things

“I, your Master, will care for you. I will free you from every worry. I only want to be everything to you so that nothing ties you to the earth.” (Jesus) (April 20, 1964)

Today’s Readings: The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” (Luke 10)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, it seems that for many of us this is our daily life- anxious and worried about many things, not enough time in the day, always spinning our wheels and never getting anything done. It is not just the to do list- it is our worries and fears about our futures and our families. Cut off from the vine, we are low lying fruit for the enemy and like Martha we start to complain. You see our lives, what we need to do, what we struggle with on a daily basis and You call our name, telling us there is only thing needed. Lord, help us to keep our eyes fixed on You, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2), and believe with all of our hearts that what You have begun  in us will be completed if we just make You our everything! You are my everything and I will adore You!
