Barasoain Weekly Reflection for 23 – 29 April 2017
“But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.”
There was this story of a young man who came from a distant love to meet his girlfriend. He is nervous of what will be the outcome of his visit but still he went on. Even he is so nervous on his journey thinking of what will happen, he still managed to arrive safely and was accepted by her family.
There are times that we are worried about something that it prevents us from doing something great. Jesus’s apostles faced the same dilemma after His death. They are scared of going out after His crucifixion.
They are now worried what will happen to them.
But all of it changed when He appeared on them in flesh. Suddenly, there was joy and relief to the apostles. From that moment on, their spirits have become renewed in spreading the Good News to everyone.
There are times that we will face dilemmas and questions in our lives that will prevent us from doing something. But, with God on our side, we will be able to see the light of His glory, feel refreshed and our strength renewed. We don’t have to worry anymore but rather be confident that He will give us strength and courage to face even our greatest fears. Go for it!
