What are you doing with your life?
Do you give yourself time to ask and ponder that question, for it is a question that one day we must answer. So instead of putting off the moment let us begin to acquire the habit of self reflection so that we deepen our awareness of ourselves and our relationship to the Lord.
All the time we have is NOW. The mental effects and impressions of the past give to our present perceptions a distorted reality for the memory is always playing tricks with us.
Especially when past sins carry with them an emotional attachment. This is how the devil seeks to drag us down into despair. Being aware of this, the true soldier of Christ arms himself in the present moment, especially by keeping a watch over his senses. To avoid anything unhealthy that may pollute the mind and open up an attachment which is a form of demonic oppression.
At the start of each day offer yourself to God and at its end commend your soul into His safe keeping. Tomorrow may be your last day upon this earth and so try to live as if it were.
Be free from Mortal sin by going to Confession immediately. Be clear as to the purpose and reason of whatever you are doing otherwise your energy will not have a positive effect.
Your mind will be clouded and you will not see the way clearly by the light of Christ.
Lord Jesus help me and guide me
To see your love for me.
Keep me strong to do your will,
And protect me from the evil one.
Let me give myself to you in freedom
Trusting in your faithfulness.
Help me to give you everything
So that your glory will shine
Through my weakness
Keeping me safe
In your most Sacred Heart.
