Hope Renewed

I can get frustrated at my lack of accomplishment.

God delivers the message to me all the time: "Don't worry." I manage to forget it each time.

Julie D. serves as his prophet this time around.

In particular:
The Bible is full of examples of this very thing, culminating in the Holy Family's example. God uses holy garbagemen, store clerks, toll road workers, etc. just as much as He ever did a carpenter and housewife from an obscure town. The question is, as I suppose it always is, can we be holy in our places through the small things as were Mary, Joseph and Jesus?

As Mother Theresa once said: God doesn't call us to be successful. He calls us to be faithful.

Wherever I am, I can live through holiness in order to become who I ought to be. Whatever my circumstances, I can live them in service to the Truth.

So can we all.
