A few years ago, I never really thought much about God’s goodness. Sure, I was grateful and felt like I was living a good Christian life, but I never really understood what was available to me and the impact it could have on my perspective and my heart. My disordered thinking deceived me into thinking that living life was all within my control where I was able to freely chart my destiny. Looking back, I can see how self-absorbed I was. In a nutshell, I don’t think I wholeheartedly trusted God’s goodness.
Lacking in wisdom, I was unaware of the divine within me. By getting in touch with the spirit side God placed in me, I’m now confident I’m fulfilling God’s unique plan designed just for me. I’m seeking Gods will and not mine.
The truth is that each one of us is given a unique mission to accomplish on this earth.
As I live in this goodness, define my values, and stay true to them, my life becomes aligned with the natural flow. When I practice the virtue of prudence, the foundation of wisdom, I learn to think wisely and discern good. Contemplating the goodness of God leads me to peace of mind.
Three things are necessary for the salvation of man: to know what he ought to believe; to know what he ought to desire; and to know what he ought to do.St. Thomas Aquinas
Thank you, God, for constantly waiting for me, looking for me and drawing me to you. Your love gives me the courage to seek and desire your goodness throughout the humble moments of my day and live my life through this love.
