Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s
Sunday in Ordinary Time
Grace is Sufficient- It is More than Enough!
In the midst of a great loneliness, this spiritual anguish was made worse by the disturbing thoughts of constant doubts against faith. With all my strength, I tried to safeguard the spiritual balance, which was already greatly reduced. In my weakness, my confused thoughts convinced me that everything was evil. This insecurity kept growing and causing waves in my soul. (Elizabeth)(January 1, 1965)
Readings: Brothers and sisters:
That I, Paul, might not become too elated,
because of the abundance of the revelations,
a thorn in the flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan,
to beat me, to keep me from being too elated.
Three times I begged the Lord about this, that it might leave me,
but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
for power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we have many thorns in the flesh- physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual pain and disturbances that rock our sense of peace! Sometimes, Lord, You lift the burdens and sometimes, the answer is no because it is Your Grace that will get us through, Your Perfect Power working in our weaknesses! Lord Your Grace is always more than enough- help us to abandon ourselves to Your Loving Providence at all times!
