Fifteenth Thursday of Ordinary Time

I am concerned about you and about the way you are being treated in Egypt; so I have decided to lead you up out of the misery of Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, a land flowing with milk and honey.

God is always concerned for us and our well being. We might not feel that way all the time. We might feel abandoned and lost. However, God is always with us, by our side in good times and bad. We might not see Him, but He is there to protect and guide us. He gives us the graces we need to overcome every obstacle, to bear any burden, to make it through our sorrows. And through Jesus Christ, He has given us a way, leading us out of our worldly miseries and into the promised land of eternal life with Him.

Do we feel abandoned or lost? Are we miserable or sorrowful? How can we turn these things over to God and allow Him to bear us out of our hardships and worries?

O Lord, lead us to the land flowing with your love and mercy.
