My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation.
Our only way to heaven is through Him. No one else can help us get there and we choose if we respond to His requests of us or not. How easily we forget that He sent His only son for us, so that we could live with Him for eternity. There are so many distractions around us it is easy to forget why we are here. We are here to continue His message of love and charity. Pope Francis is such an amazing light for us Catholics, he is wonderful about reminding us of the mission God has given us.
It is not our place to judge others. It is not our concern to conform to societies "norms". God is our guide and Jesus is our savior. God wants all of us to join Him in heaven and we are all worthy of the reward He has waiting for us. If we live our lives according to His words, we will be rewarded greatly. I was listening to a priest speak and he was talking about the noise in our lives, how it comes at us from all directions. He said, "What's the first thing you do when you get in the car? Turn the radio on? No. You don't. Because it's already on."
There is always something "on". Let's unplug. Not all day, all week, all year. Just for a minute, ten minutes, an hour a day. Let's quiet our environment long enough to allow God's voice to be heard. And instead of just being noise for others, let's bring God's gift of love and charity into the lives of those who are willing to listen. Let's not pass judgment. Let's not make assumptions. Let's not ignore the humanity in those around us. Let's pass on the love that Jesus passed on to us.
