Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Tuesday of the Thirty Second Week in Ordinary Time
Fire Tried Gold
So now, the drops of oil squeezed from your sufferings float on top of the fountain of My graces. See how your drops of oil are shining upon the mirror of silvery water! They shine like pure gold. This vision flows from My Divinity. You also find it beautiful, do you not? Immerse yourself in this beauty.” (Jesus) (November 17-18, 1964)
Today’s Readings: Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
because God tried them
and found them worthy of himself.
As gold in the furnace, he proved them,
and as sacrificial offerings he took them to himself.
In the time of their visitation they shall shine,
and shall dart about as sparks through stubble; (Wisdom 2)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, sometimes it is so difficult to see the value of our suffering, the really hard times and hard things, the “chastisements” of our lives if you will. For whom You love You chastise (Hebrews 12:6-7). Illness, failures, loss of loved ones, children off course, and yes, even our sins. And yet Lord we know that You bring all things together for good for those who love You! And that You try us like fire tried gold and make a masterpiece of our sufferings so that they shine for all Eternity in the light of Your Grace! O Lord may we always see the beauty in Your Will for us trusting that You will take us to Yourself where we will shine for all Eternity!
