Seeking to become more like Jesus
one day at a time.
one week at a time.
“What do you want me to do for you?” – Mk. 10:46-52
Spend some time with this story of Jesus healing this man and ask yourself what you’d like Jesus to do for you right now? What is your heartfelt response?
Read Jeremiah 1:4-10
All of us can find reasons why we feel like God may not want to speak to us or have plans for us. But, we often see God’s persistence in working with us, in spite of our fears or objections. Spend some time reading what God has to say to Jeremiah today.
Read Jeremiah 29:11-14 (“I know the plans I have for you”)
As you consider making this journey with God into the deeper parts of winter, ask yourself what plans you have for yourself. Now, ask yourself what plans you feel God has for you. Better yet, spend some time in quiet reflection, considering what God desires for you.
Read Luke 5:1-11
Listen to Jesus speak to Simon Peter on the shore (and you) as you hear him say these words, “Do not be afraid?” Ask: Where do I experience God calling me in the midst of my daily life?
Read John 1:35-39
Listen to Jesus say to the disciples, and to you: “What are you looking for?” What is your response today? WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Savor the graces
Take some time to enjoy God’s presence today, and reflect: where has God been speaking to you this week, encouraging you, and seeking to lead you to a deeper life.
