Are you experiencing some trials now? Have faith. Your Easter Sunday is coming! - Daily Bible Reflections September 1, 2016


YOUR SUNDAY IS
COMING
 
“Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing.” – Luke 5:5
 
          Many people tell me that I’ve succeeded so much in my life. But you see, they only know one chapter of my story. They don’t know about my other dreams that nosedived and crashed to the bottom of the sea.
       For example, in 1983, I lived in a depressed area, dreaming of starting a community among the poor, plus a cooperative to assist in their financial needs. Nothing happened.
           In 1985, I wanted to start a Christian restaurant and to provide jobs for the unemployed members of our community. That idea didn’t even reach the oven.
          At the time of the failure, I felt like I was the worst man alive. But God is a master in the art of recycling flops like me. Failures in life are courses with very high tuition fees. So I don’t cut classes and miss my lessons — about humility, patience and hope, about asking for help, listening to God, and most of all, trying again — just like how the disciples in today’s Gospel listened to and obeyed God when they had spent the night fishing and caught nothing.
          Friends, it may be Good Friday in your life right now, but your Easter Sunday is coming! Bo Sanchez (bosanchez@kerygmafamily.com)
 
Reflection: Are you experiencing some trials now? Have faith. Your Easter Sunday is coming!
 
Dearest Lord, grant me hope in times of trial and the grace to learn through my difficulties.
 
St. Giles, abbot, pray for us.
