Responding to Jesus’ Call

Standard


I just love today’s readings (http://www.usccb.org/nab/readings/052710.shtml). They’re so rich. But this one line struck me in particular:

“Take courage; get up, Jesus is calling you.”

In my darkest moments, sometimes I cannot hear the voice of Jesus. Or perhaps I hear, but I do not rise up to seek Him.

Thank you, Jesus, for calling to me. Were I truly your lamb, I would come to you, the Good Shepherd, without hesitation. But since I am not fearless, and since I have not yet attained childlike trust in you, I pray for the courage to stand. Help me be strengthened by those around me who come to me with encouragement; may I not to dismiss them. Help me to see those who support me as a blessing; may I not take them for granted. And above all, Lord, give me the humility to take the hand of a friend who wants to pick me up and lead me to You.

Amen.
