God Is All You Need!


I've been on Facebook a lot lately, liking more and more religious pages and bloggers. I think it's actually a great way to stay in touch and keep things up to date.  But as I was on there today, just moments ago I had seen a picture. A picture with a beautiful saying on it. ( Sadly it was ruined with the typical FaceBook thing: Like, Comment and Share if you believe this! )  Anyways, this beautiful saying on this picture was: 








If God Is all You Have:
You Have All You Need.

I think there is to many of us, that think God isn't enough. That we need more than God to survive. That God isn't that great. That God won't keep his promises. That we need to do thing all on our own. That's another big thing, we all want to do things on our own, not get any help. We all want to do by our selves. 

But the thing is, we need God. God is really that Great. He is the one the can fill us with an abundance of grace and forgiveness. He is enough. If everything else in our lives goes, and we only have God, well then we have EVERYTHING. Don't believe me then read Matthew 6: 25-34 to find out for your self. 

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?"
Matthew 6: 25

God is all we need. He is that great. He will give us everything we need in our daily lives.  He will supply all that we will ever need or want. 


So, if that's the case why do we worry so much? 

Why can't we see the blessing of today, instead of worrying about tomorrow? 

We have to TRUST God. We have to have FAITH, that he will indeed supply for tomorrow. God supplied Manna in the desert for 40 years for the Israelites. If they tried saving it it would spoil. To teach them that God will indeed supply for tomorrow.


 God is waiting for us to recognize  today's blessings. He want's us to see what he is doing for us today. When we see that, we won't have to worry about  tomorrow, he is taking care of it. 

Isn't it great to have a God that is looking out for us every moment of everyday? I think So!

Forgive... Not Seven times but Seventy Seven times

21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” 22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.
Matthew 18:21-22 
It's very hard to forgive. Forgiveness is essential to our life here on earth. Jesus gave us the perfect example of forgiveness while he was on earth. Jesus loved us so much that he bore all our sins on the cross that goes before us. Every wrong we have done; every pain has become  A LOT LIGHTER because Jesus bore it before us.
Jesus is asked by his own, disciples, how many times should they forgive. Because they know that they have to forgive, and they know they everyone does wrong, but how much is enough? We need to draw a line right? No.
Jesus tells us that we shouldn't just forgive seven times. He told us to forgive 77 times. Or 77 X 7 times. Which is a more perfect number. Jesus told us that we must forgive has many times that someone does wrong. …

Feed My Sheep

During this Easter season we are given the opportunity to listen and reflect on the word of God from the Gospel of John. For the third and final time this weekend, we will hear a post-resurrection appearance of Christ to his apostles. It is through these appearances that Christ proves his resurrection, dispels the darkness of doubt in his apostle’s mind, and commissions them to make known the love and joy of these events to the world.

The Gospel this weekend tells us that after the death and resurrection of Christ, the disciples have returned to fishing, as they once did before they followed Christ. These skilled fishermen do not catch anything all night, until a man comes on the shore of the beach and tells them to cast their net on the right side of the boat, and they catch an abundance of fish, that the net should have broke, but it did not. After they caught these fish, the apostles realized that it was the Lord, who has now called them a second time from their job of fishing to …

Fishers of Men

I have had the pleasure recently to start teaching again the First Penance and Eucharist at my Parish. It is always  a great time for me to know that I am laying the seeds of God in their heart and knowing that I am preparing them for a once-in-life-time event.  I love seeing the kids who are earnest to learn and who want to be there.

     In todays' Gospel, we are presented with an overview of Jesus life. Jesus does three distinctive things, that Matthew wraps up very quickly. He teaches, proclaims, and heals. These three unfold for us what we can expect from Jesus during his life time.  However, before he begins his own life and mission one thing had to happen- the Death of John the Baptist. John, we know, was the last of the Prophets and his main mission was to make sure people were finally ready for the King  to come. Jesus, therefore, couldn't start until the paths were made straight.

     Jesus mission on earth is the great light that has appeared in the darkness. In…
