For a more enriching experience,
go down on your knees to pray or take it one step further
and prostrate yourself (lay face down) on the floor while praying.
Father, today's reading below is a bold reminder that since You are who You are, why would I fear anything? I mean, You're YOU! What could I possibly fear knowing that You are always with me and knowing that You are my Father? When Jesus chided His disciples for their lack of Faith, it dawned on me that it wasn't because He was upset that they interrupted His sleep. Jesus would have gladly woke up to answer their prayer. The problem was that they woke Him up to answer their prayer out of fear, not to answer their prayer out of faith. Wow, huge, HUGE difference! I'm certain at some point in my Life, someone woke me up and my response was, "What! You woke me up for that?!?!" I get it! Not to mention Jesus was with them the entire time! He was right there on the boat with them and they were still afraid. He was right there!!! This reminds me of the familiar quote, "I believe in the Sun even when it is not shining, I believe in Love even when I cannot feel it, I believe in God even when He is silent." Jesus was silent on the boat because He was sleeping but that in no way should have implied to the disciples that He was not fully aware and present even while He rested. He was Jesus! In a strange way, it was the disciples who were sleeping because they were sleeping in their faith. The disciples were silent in their faith and Jesus called them out on it. BAM! Right between the eyes (in the third eye). It is also interesting to note that our third eye is on the level of 3's, which is a number that You often use. We associate the 3rd eye with enlightenment and spirituality. Wow, when it's the Truth, it does show up everywhere!
Thank You for this wonderful message today that no matter what, even when I feel alone, I know better because You are always with me. That just brings a smile to my face just thinking about it. I Love You Father! I LOVE YOU!
Through Jesus Christ's Most Precious Blood, Most Sacred Name and Most Holy Face, I thank You for this awareness. Amen~
A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
23 And when He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him.
24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but He was asleep.
25 And they went and woke Him, saying, "Save us Lord; we are perishing!"
26 And He said to them, "Why are you afraid, O men of little faith?" Then He rose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.
27 And the men marveled, saying, "What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey Him?"
The Gospel of the Lord
Praise to You Lord Jesus Christ
