Mary TV Daily Reflection 1/14/2014

Give me insight, Lord...

Dear Family of Mary!

As I prayed the Office of Readings for Monday, Week 1, I was attracted to the short prayer before the first reading. It read:
Give me insight, Lord, to know your will.
-Then I will cherish it with all my heart.

Such a beautiful little prayer! It gave me peace for the whole day! I realized that I need not struggle to know God's will. I need rather to just ask Him to give me the insight to know His will for me. He will do it. He loves me! And then, when He does show me His will for me, I can receive it like the most precious of gifts, which it is! Imagine, the Almighty God actually cares what I do today! He is so intimately involved with my life that He has worked out the best way for me to tread! Imagine such a wonderful God!

Our Lady once told us:

"Dear children! Also today I call you to pray for peace. Pray with the heart, little children, and do not lose hope because God loves His creatures. He desires to save you, one by one, through my coming here. I call you to the way of holiness. Pray, and in prayer you are open to God's will; in this way, in everything you do, you realize God's plan in you and through you. Thank you for having responded to my call." (March 25, 2003)

This message is also precious, and most heartening. Our Lady gives us great reason to hope. God loves His creatures, and desires to save us, one by one!! And He is doing it through Our Lady's coming in Medjugorje in these days.

And she gives us the way to receive God's will when she tells us: "Pray, and in prayer you are open to God's will; in this way, in everything you do, you realize God's plan in you and through you." Our Lady encourages us to pray, to open our hearts to God's will, and then we will begin to cooperate with Him for His plan in our individual lives. In prayer, we will find God's plan. Prayer is the way to open our hearts to receive the insights that God wants to give us.

We are so blessed to be among Our Lady's children in these days. We have been given a great gift, in her presence with us. She is teaching us so much through her messages. May we cherish Our Lady! And may we cherish the gift of God's will for our lives. Both are great, incredible gifts for us!

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
