Memorial of the Guardian Angels

Old men and old women, each with staff in hand because of old age, shall again sit in the streets of Jerusalem. The city shall be filled with boys and girls playing in its streets. Thus says the LORD of hosts: Even if this should seem impossible in the eyes of the remnant of this people, shall it in those days be impossible in my eyes also, says the LORD of hosts?

Nothing is impossible for God. If He has plans for us and we accept them, then He will give us every grace we need to overcome the trials, sufferings, and obstacles in our way. If He wishes us to leave everything behind and follow Him, then we will have all we need awaiting us at our destination. If He needs us to say or do something for Him, then He will give us the words or the actions we need to accomplish His Will. If He asks us to leave behind what we know, then He will give us everything we need to embrace the unknown and thrive. We might not always understand why God is asking us to do something or how we are to accomplish it, but as long as we have child-like confidence in Him, then we shall always be given exactly what we need when we need it.

Are we open to the impossible? Are we willing to let God lead us to places, people, and works we have never dreamed of? How can we trust Him as we should?

O Lord, with you all things are possible.
