May the Lord kindly bless you with good health and happiness in the Holy Spirit.
It is 27th July 2022. We reflect on Jeremiah 15:10, 16-21 and Matthew 13:44-46.
We are all looking for something in life. A few things we find without much difficulty but most of them are found with sweat and smartness. There is pressure and persistence involved in every search. At times we give up soon and curse the past and the failures that fell upon us. Many are tired and exhausted looking for something that is not lasting. Our contentment and security come by finding something that can outlast everything.
Life teaches lessons not only from schools and universities but in the desert of pain, sickness, and hopeless conditions of life. whenever we are faced with unbearable people, situations, and events, we too lament like the prophet. At the end of the day, help and security comes only from God. at times it is late but sure to reach everyone in need and faith. “And I will make you to this people a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you, but they shall not prevail over you, for I am with you to save you and deliver you, says the Lord. I will deliver you out of the hand of the wicked and redeem you from the grasp of the ruthless.” (Jer.15:20). We can boldly say along with the Psalmist: “God is my refuge on the day of distress.” (Ps.46:1).
We all can find the pearls in the treasure hunt of the Kingdom. Unless we let go of what we have, we might let lose the chance of possessing the treasure. It is a matter of conviction and commitment that makes us find the treasure of our life, Jesus Himself. May God bless you.
