Anxious? Why? God Loves You and Me by Florence D’Costa

My dear bothers and sisters in Christ, many of us become anxious when things are not going right for us.  We begin to lose our faith in God and in people.  We lose our peace and we become restless.  St Paul was an executor of Christians and he was then known as Saul.  When he had an experience with Christ, he changed and became Paul, the Greatest Missionary of all time. This man who persecuted and killed Christians, once he had an encounter with Christ, fell in love with Christ and from then on spent all his wisdom and energies to spread the good news of Christ Jesus.

It would do us good to read and meditate on his letters.  He has written very wise and comforting words.  Our faith in Christ would increase through the wise words of St Paul.  God has a plan for every man.  He had a great plan for Saul the persecutor of Christians and I am sure that he has a great and exciting plan for You and Me.  So, do not give up hope in God and let us be faithful and wise like Paul, so that our faith in Christ would be increased and so would our wisdom and we in turn would be able to promote Christ to others in a great way as well. As the saying goes, “little drops of water, make a might ocean.”

May Our Lord Jesus Christ bless us all.

From persecutor to Christian: The conversion of St. Paul
St. Paul’s conversion began when, with a flash of light, he fell from his horse.

Faith in God opens the door to Miracles by Florence D’Costa

Many Catholics and Christians of our day, have less faith, even though the stories in the Bible tell us about the love and power of God.  Many of us doubt in God’s care and mercy.  We think, well God can and has done wonderful things in the bible and I know people who have been very blessed by God but I doubt if God can and will do for me.  Why? Because till date I have not received miracles and wonders like the others have.

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I would like to assure you that I did think like that many, many years ago and God proved me wrong.  I have studied scripture and I became aware of how much God loves us all, especially me.  By that I mean God loves me in a personal way and He cares for me in a personal way and He knows my every thought, not to punish me but to help me in this life.  He has and was performing miracles in my life right from the moment I was conceived in my mother’s womb because my parents were so happy to have me and they gave me life. I WAS NOT ABORTED like babies who are aborted and killed these days in their mother’s womb.  My God gave me life, love, happiness, joy, fed me through my parents, clothed me and gave me shelter and protection under my parents’ guidance. My parents and the family, relatives and friends around me loved and cared for me.  I was a happy child.  But when trouble strikes, we immediately say, “God does not love me like he loves others and I do not think he will perform miracles in my life.  Well, my brothers and sisters, we are all miracles and Christ is journeying with us and if we look closely, we will find that he does perform many miracles in our ordinary lives, daily.

But, let us now stop and apologise to our God and continue our days as we recognise the miracles in our lives and thank God for every one of them.  LET US HAVE FAITH IN HIM.
