Faith’s Struggles.

People who are serious about their relationship with God seek out a spiritual director occasionally. A common struggle that people have is doubts about their faith in God. They don’t like doubts, but they can’t seem to stop them.

Think of an onion. You peel the first ring, and there is a second ring and another after that ring. Similarly, what was exciting in relationships with people or God is no longer exciting.

Nothing is wrong in the relationship. Our hearts call us to more profound knowledge and trust in each other; as we change, we must get to know each other again.

The people of Jesus’ hometown experienced this challenge. They knew Him as a child and the son of Joseph and Mary. “Where did he get all this?” they questioned. How can he teach as a Rabbi, and what about these miracles?

Gospel Challenge:

As Jesus called the people of Nazareth, He calls us to abandon ourselves into His care. It takes tremendous trust to open our hearts and close our eyes to let the Lord take the lead.

Is something pressing on you right now? Do you want to do something about it and feel you must? Don’t. Pray, “Lord Jesus, I surrender myself to you. Take care of everything. Trust is the narrow road we must travel to receive heaven’s blessings.

Love Your Neighbor:
Please join me in praying for all baptized Catholics to be faithful to Jesus in the Holy Mass every weekend. Hail Mary, full of grace…

Mother Mary, “I am yours now and forever. Through you and with you, I always want to belong completely to Jesus.” The Surrender Novena – InHeartland. https://inheartland.com/pages/the-surrender-novena

Peace be with you.
