FINDING PEACE THROUGH FAITH AND FORGIVENESS When we experience freedom in loving, in serving and in living out the dignity as the children of God, we know that we are redeemed. When we no longer are ashamed of our past but can give thanks to God for all that we went through, our sins and our mistakes; and seeing them as grace at work in our moments of disgrace, then we know we are healed and forgiven. If we think we are forgiven but lack the courage to speak about our past, or when we think of the past and we are still grieving and not celebrating, it means that we have not experienced real forgiveness from the Lord simply because we cannot forgive ourselves or do not truly claim His forgiveness for us.

ONLY JESUS CAN TRANSFORM OUR HEARTS AND HEAL OUR SINFUL CONDITION We know very well that if we want to find peace and rest, we need to listen to the voice of the Lord. The gospel tells us that it is not by our strength that we can overcome our sins. We can only conquer our sins through the healing grace of Jesus, because many of our sins are deeply rooted in us, in our mind and unconscious. How, then, can we be healed from the core of our being?

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
