T is For Time

T is indeed for Time.

At least once in our lives we all used the expression "There isn't enough time in the day to get things done" Well you would be right! Cause it actually takes the earth 23 hours and 56 minutes to make a full rotation and not 24 hours. They say in about 50 years or so, it will take the earth 27 hours to make a full rotation.

Don't we all love it when everything we want happens when we want it to? Of course we do. Everything goes according to plan, and thats the dream for everyone that rarely happens. Everything happening when it should is just the most wonderful thing we can imagine of... isn't it?

God's timing is really weird isn't it? As weird as it may seem to us, it all works out perfectly at the end.  God answers our prayers. Well he knows our prayers before we speak them, but he answers them when he knows the time is right. It could be today, tomorrow, next month, or next year. Gods timing is always the best timing.

So then, why do we get mad at God when he answers our prayer but at a different time? Why do we get mad at him for answering our prayer?

God answered our prayer! He listened to us, he heard the cry of his children. He heard and answered the conversation, and we are going to get mad because of that? God works in magical ways. At the end we see the benefits of his timing, but if we don't like it then we get mad at God because his timing didn't match ours.

It doesn't need to. For if we, who claim to be followers of Christ the Lord, truly believe in Christ the Lord we would give him glory and praise for his timing. For everything he does his for the Good of us. He looks out for us. He cares for us! And so he does things and works things when the time is right..

God works wondrously! He is the fountain of Life and so we should Thank him once and a while for all his timing he does in our lives. To teach us, to love us, to care for us!

God doesn't have a time limit of 24 hours or 27 hours. HE never stops...

  1. Hi Mike,
    Gods timing can sometimes really stretch us. When He does not answer according to our plan or time table. I would agree with you that we see the benefits of God's timing in the end.

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…
