Welcome !

Greetings to all who love to wander along the paths of the Holy Scriptures! The purpose of this blog is to share some of the insights of ordinary Catholics who have begun to delve into the mysteries of the Sacred Scriptures. Hopefully you will find these reflections inspiring and insightful. We are faithful to the Church, but we are not theologians; we intend and trust that our individual reflections will remain within the inspired traditions of the Church. (If you note otherwise please let me know!) Discussion and comments are welcome, but always in charity and respect! Come and join us as we ponder the Sacred Scriptures, which will lead us on the path into His heart, which "God alone has traced" Job 28:23.

Right Where I Am

A prayer by Sharon Nelsen

This prayer came to me this morning after I had written out a quote from Joan Chittister, OSB "listen with compassion,...listen for the truth of a thing...(and) obey what makes your heart more human." That popped out at me from all of my morning readings. Then this scripture from which came the prayer:

"To you, Lord, I will offer a sacrifice of praise." (Psalm 116.17a)

Praise You, Lord, right where I am
Praise You in the strengths and weaknesses
of my body
of my mind
of my emotions
of my spirit
May all of my weaknesses become vessels of Your Strength
May I use all--strength and weakness
to give your glory
now and forever.
Praise Him!
