Daily Bible Reflections- January 14, 2012


He said to him, “Follow me.” – Mark 2:14

After two years of giving myself wholeheartedly to my work, I found the chance to one day go to a mountaintop to listen to the Lord and relax in His presence.
There I presented to Him all my concerns. At the bottom of my list was my health. For many months, my body had been “acting up,” but I didn’t listen to it. Instead I continued working, sometimes even overnight just to beat our deadlines.
This went on even after my retreat. And so it came to pass — I slipped and tripped, injured my finger, had elevated bad cholesterol and sugar levels, had migraine headaches, and cough and colds almost every month. By yearend, instead of enjoying the holiday break, I was cooped up in bed, too weak and tired to even do my Christmas shopping. In the silence of my heart, I heard the Lord say again, “Didn’t I tell you to listen to your body?”
“Sorry, Lord!” And so I decided to live a healthier and more balanced life. But deciding is different from actually doing it. I try, but I’m not always successful — until now.
Following God’s Word is sometimes hard to do, but knowing that it’s always for our own good makes me keep on trying. Tess V. Atienza (svp_tvatienza@yahoo.com)

What is the Lord telling you? Are you following His Word?

Lord, if I don’t seem to hear and follow Your Word to me, shake me up some more till I do.

Servant of God John the Gardener, pray for us.
