The Time Is Now

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

Monday of the Thirteenth Week of Ordinary Time

The Time is Now

Time is short, little sister, and never returns. What you do not accept at a given moment will never again become available to you, because I think that you would not receive it willingly. (Jesus) (July 24, 1963)

Today’s Readings: Another of his disciples said to him, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.” But Jesus answered him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.” (Matthew 8)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, You call us but it seems we always have some reason or excuse why we can’t do what You are asking right here, right now. I will follow You Lord more closely when these kids grow up, or when I retire, or when I settle down and start a family, or when the circumstances are right whatever those perceived circumstances may be. But Lord, You are asking us in our busy lives at every age to follow You now in the busyness and the noise. You ask us to pray each day and study the Word so that we can hear what You are asking of us in each moments of our day. Time is short and never returns- let us be attuned at all times to the inspirations You send us every day and respond in love and acceptance.
