Many are the blessings to celebrate the Lord right away! Let us think for a moment about our life. I am sure that we will find something to be thankful for, even though it has been painful.
We owe everything to God! He is the author of life and the giver of all blessings to live and to be saved. “The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all.” 1 Corinthians 12:7. We can feel the power of our spiritual gifts throughout the presence of the Holy Spirit who dwells in us. So that, if we are able to do any good to others, it is only because God lives in us, and all the glory belongs to Him.
God knows us individually, and “He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides.” 1 Corinthians 12:11 Let´s accept God´s grace and use our gifts for his glory; with His help we can repent, receive his forgiveness, and forgive those who have offended us. It is wonderful to see that there are countless blessings to exalt our Heavenly Father!
God is our Creator and Saviour, “I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30. We can please God with our praise and thanksgiving!
May Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary inspire us to glorify God all the days of our life.
I invite you to meditate Saint Theresa of Avila prayer:
Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.
-- St. Teresa of Avila
