Experiences of Life
The Word of Life Project is an initiative for 2012 to not only read the word of life and put it into practice,
but to share the real-life results of doing so. This collection of testimonials is meant to encourage all of
us to pick up the word of life, read it, live it and share it. Stay tuned for an experience submission form!
|God's will was right in front of me|
|Friday, January 06, 2012|
The other day my house mate called me from work and asked if I could go in the attic to look for a box she needed.
I always have a hard time going to the attic because it is hot, dark, and I can never find what I'm looking for. I went, but I couldn't find the box! At first, I felt like I had done my part, and it wasn't my fault that I didn't find it. But later on in the day I remembered that, that same morning while reading the Word of Life of October, it had struck me that I could respond to that call, "Follow me," by doing what God wants in the present moment.
"Follow me." (Mt 9:9)
The commentary reads, "(...) do God’s will with determination, dedicating ourselves fully to the brothers and sisters that we are called to love." I thought about my friend who would have to go look for the box herself after work, tired, and I realized she was one of those "sisters" I was called to dedicate to fully.
So I decided to go back up in the attic to look for the box one more time. I hadn't even finished going up the ladder and I saw the box that I needed right in front of me!
