Sometimes, it may feel like we are wading through quicksand and that we are too broken or messed up for God to love us, but this is is a lie. In His infinite goodness, God thirsts for us. He reaches out to us in our difficulty, calling out to us like a lighthouse on the horizon. Often we may not hear him, though, as we are weighed down by sin or worldly attachments. But once again, God reaches out. Through the Sacrament of Confession, He reaches out with open arms and - like a patient father, He warmly remarks, "Let's start over. I don't want to fight anymore. Let's be friends."
The Return of the Prodigal Son | Rembrandt van Rijn | 1667
Spend some time listening to God or tell Him what's on your heart. Practice letting go and letting God.
Offer your time in Adoration for someone in need.
The Annunciation | Henry Ossawa Tanner | 1898
" If I had understood that in this tiny palace of my soul, such a great King is living, I would not have left Him alone so often."
- St. Teresa of Avila
