Source of Strength
“Lord, give me strength.”
We all have too much to do. The effort required to be a good person, an employee, a husband, a father, and a citizen (not to mention a saint) is too much. We can’t handle it…well, on our own at least.
Whether we like to admit it or not — we are weak creatures, and we need help.
As men, we are called to be providers, protectors, and spiritual leaders. We can’t just ‘phone that in.’ So, where can we turn for strength? Where can we go to be refreshed and renewed?
The short answer: God. But, each of us may encounter God differently. Some of us experience Him the most in prayer, through the Rosary or Scripture. Others find Him in the sacraments, like the Eucharist or Confession. Or, He may be in acts of friendship, brotherhood, and serving others.
These are all beautiful gifts given to us to help us on our journey.
Take a bit of time today and reflect on this question: Where do you go to strengthen your faith life? Let your answer become the wellspring for your faith, and go back to it as often as you can.
“Come, Holy Spirit, Come.”
