Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Thursday of the First Week of Advent
On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand- All Other Ground is Sinking Sand
We constantly hurt Him by our many sins. He, in spite of everything, is always kind. He said: “I bless this house that is consecrated to My Sacred Heart.” (Elizabeth) (August 16, 1962)
Today’s Readings: “Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them
will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
The rain fell, the floods came,
and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. (Matthew 7)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, we often build our houses not on the Rock of Your Love but on the sinking sand of what the world tells us should be our foundation. And then we are confused when it all falls apart- the rains, the floods, and the winds come and we have no foundation. Thank You Jesus that we can turn to You in spite of everything because a humble contrite heart You will not spurn (Psalm 51). Lord, let us build our houses, our lives, on You the Solid Rock on which we stand- all other ground is sinking sand! Jesus we trust in You!
