Do not let your hearts be troubled.
You have faith in God; have Faith also in me,
I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
As I sit with a dying Sister in the quiet of the night, I reflect on my Faith. What a gift! A gift with many blessings as we know we are never alone.
There is more to life and we always have our guide – Jesus – leading us. I just need to slow down, listen, and let him guide me. To follow even when it is not necessarily my Way. I need to take time in quiet places to listen, to hear him. I know he leads me through life. I gave myself to God – I need to stay open, He is my Way, my Truth, and my Life.
Jesus, you’ve led me through good times and difficult times. You are always there with me, carrying me. Help me to find the quiet place in my heart and listen. I know you are leading me to my eternal home with you. Thank you for always being present carrying me through life.
