“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” (Lao-tzu). So take that single step towards Jesus today! - Daily Bible Reflections October 25, 2015

BEING LIKE
BARTIMAEUS
 
“Take courage; get up, Jesus is calling you.” – Mark 10:49
       In many ways, I can relate to Bartimaeus in today’s Gospel. Many times in my life, I find myself crying out to Jesus, asking him to “have pity on me.” Usually, these are the times when I fall into sin, and when I am blind to the needs of those around me, especially my loved ones. Whenever I am selfish or ill-tempered or impatient, I find myself — like Bartimaeus — at the “roadside,” begging for God’s mercy and forgiveness.
       Thank God then for His message for me — and you! — today: He calls us to take courage and get up… to rise up from the depths of our sinfulness… to break free from the bondages that hold us captive… — like Bartimaeus — to throw aside the “cloak” of darkness that clothes us, spring up, and come to Jesus.
       So what are you waiting for, friend? Take courage; get up, He is calling you. Tina Santiago-Rodriguez (tina@trulyrichmom.com)
 
Reflection: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” (Lao-tzu). So take that single step towards Jesus today!
 
Lord, heal me of my blindness. Open my eyes to Your goodness and love today and every day.
 
St. Antonio de Sant’Anna Galvao, pray for us.
