One must arrange one’s life so that everything praises God

As Catholics our entire purpose and goal of living faithfully on earth is to one day attain the beatific vision and celebrate with the angels and saints in Heaven! Right?

Is that what you believe? Then why do we forget that so easily in our daily lives and strive to attain our dream job, our dream wedding, our dream house/ vacation, etc.. Believe me I’m not saying forget about all your dreams and never aspire to anything on this earth, but rather I’m saying let’s stay vigilant and not let those earthly wants and desires rule our world.

One must arrange one’s life so that everything praises God, said St. John Paul II

It is so easy to get caught up in the small picture and sweat the little things 🙂 I’m right there with you and am not perfect by any means so maybe we can help each other remember this!

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately because of the current job/living situation in my own life.

Don’t get caught up in the good feelings associated with people telling you that you have the dream job, or look great in that new outfit! DO what makes you happy and pleases God by following his plan! You will not regret that decision.

Also learn how to live in silence in this busy/ modern world and enjoy life in communion with God! To learn how to have inner silence amongst the noise click here.

The fruit of silence is prayer. The fruit of prayer is faith. The fruit of faith is love. The fruit of love is service. The fruit of service is peace. – Mother Teresa

No matter where you are or at what stage you are in your life, you can bear awesome fruit for his kingdom (word among us daily meditation, (7/28/14).
