Do you have the inner strength to accept life’s challenges, the determination and resilience when troubles come raging in on us? - Daily Bible Reflections September 13, 2016


THE WATERSPOUT
CHALLENGE
 
He stepped forward and touched the coffin; at this the bearers halted, and he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise!” – Luke 7:14
 
    Warning: The following discussion might be highly intellectual. Cereb-ral even. I apologize in advance. Here we go...
       Eensy Weensy Spider went up the waterspout
       Down came the rain and washed the spider out
       Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
       And the Eensy, Weensy Spider went up the spout again.
       Whoa! Fierce! Our courageous Eensy Weensy has to go somewhere very important. He accepted the waterspout challenge. It wasn’t just a downpour. The waterspout unleashes the momentum of the downpour full strength upon Eensy Weensy. But he held on. He dug in his heels and clung to dear life. Water poured and flowed mightily… until it was over. Out came the sun and dried up all the rain. Resilience paid off! Eensy Weensy Spider went up the spout again!
    May a “psychological coffin” of our own making — of fear and hesitation and apathy — not contain us. Today, may Jesus’ touch and voice make us come alive!
        “Young man, I say to you, arise!”Obet Cabrillas
 
Reflection: Do you have the inner strength to accept life’s challenges, the determination and resilience when troubles come raging in on us?
 
Lord, I can do all things through You who strengthen me! (Philippians 4:13)
 
St. John Chrysostom, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
