May the Lord kindly bless you with good health and happiness in the Holy Spirit.
It is 02nd July 2022. We reflect on Amos 9:11-15 and Matthew 9:14-17.
“Life will break your heart. Life may take everything you have and everything you’ve hoped for. But there is one gratifying truth I believe in: I believe that in the darkness, even there, there will be beauty and love. And every now and then, it will feel more than enough,” says Kate Bowler
Without hope life becomes aimless. God offers hope to people who lost everything in their life. “I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them.
Virtue and blessings go hand in hand. Life has many detours, so it is worth travelling. Life has no dead end. Our life is just a breath away apart from each other. When we simmer down our mistrust, life offers the flames of hope. In every chaos, there is a choice and formulas for success. Nothing is lost when there is trust, love and hope are there.
The pity is that we have children and youth who were constantly losing hope, and vision and becoming constant complainers. Many of us are afraid of being punished by God, parents, and the system. To be connected we do not need to be always near the other. Connectedness is more than physical proximity.
In the Gospel, Jesus reinforces our hope by preparing us for the change that leads to better shores of hope. May God bless and increase our hope to be fruitful people.
