Monday, September 19: Are You Going on With Jesus?

remaining faithful to the Son of God amidst temptations can be quite a tall order.  but, focusing on our love for Him and His love for us,  keeping Him in our thoughts and hearts through scripture reading, bible sharing, meditation, the Holy Eucharist, and prayer,  and seeking daily the grace from the Holy Spirit  are but a few ways to protect us from the evil enticements of the world.

“we have the idea that we ought to shield ourselves from some of the things God brings around us. but it is God who engineers our circumstances, and whatever they may be we must see that we face them while continually abiding with Him in His temptations.” — My Utmost For His Highest

we don’t run away from life’s challenges, worsened by the temptations that taunt and weaken us, all because we are scared of failing.  we believe, strive, and pray that Christ in His compassion and love will sustain and enrich us always.

“Dear Holy Spirit, we need You in the battles of our lives.  we ask that You bless us, be with Us, guide us, strengthen us, wizen us up, and love us dearly so that we may breeze through life’s temptations  and remain faithful to You.  never lose hope or turn Your face away, dear Jesus.  all we desire is that we live in You and You in us. amen.”
