In Mass this past weekend, we had a visiting Priest. During his homily he made a statement:
“We are continuously being created by God.” “It never stops.”
Of course, all of you that know me, knows that sent my thought process, going in a thousand directions. The contemplation on this statement has been much, and I came to the conclusion, “We are continuously being created by God.”
Each morning when we awake, brings to us a different day. It will either bring to us a new joy or trial. It will bring to us a gaining in our wisdom and knowledge. A different prayer and life from yesterday.
Different thoughts and words will come into our lives. Also, different people to deal with, some difficult and some not so difficult.
Almost daily, we confront a new season in our lives, be it one in the spiritual, personal, or physical world.
We can be assured of one thing, today is definitely going to be different from yesterday or tomorrow.
I asked myself, “Why do things really change daily in our lives?” This is the answer I came up with for myself.
God has each and every single day, planned for me. He knows what it will all entail from the moment I open my eyes. He also has the answer and help for it all.
God knows exactly what I need to grow in, and what I need less of, if not getting rid of it completely.
So daily with God, I am growing in something or getting rid of something.
Each time I do I am being “created.” Sometimes, at the moment I know what I am being created into and for, and sometimes I do not. At times the answer to that, comes years down the road.
With each creation, I always become more aware of God’s presence. I become more aware, of what He is actually wanting for my life.
I am able to walk through trials and tribulations better.
I gain more peace.
I become more rounded, as a human being and as a child of God.
I depend on Him more, and less on myself.
If God left me where I was at five years ago, that is exactly who I would be today. There would be no growth or expansion in my life, whatsoever.
He has to keep “creating” me daily, so I can become who and what I am supposed to be. Without it, I would be just a stagnant life, with no hope of any kind.
We all have to have growth of many and various kinds, in our walk with God. Sometimes this growth is hard and sometimes it is not.
The only way we can do this, is to be “created” daily, by all the different, challenging, and not so challenging things and people who we will all encounter.
If we are not willing to let this happen, we will never change. That to me is exactly, what it is all about.
It is not a “recreation,” to me that is not what God does. A “recreation” we would remain the same. God in His infinite wisdom knows that cannot happen.
He actually “creates” something new in us daily, if not hourly.
Would love your thoughts on it.
Lord, from this day forward may my offering to You be, “I am willing to let You “create” me, into the creature to whom I was born to be. I want and desire the changes within myself, that only You know I need. Help me each and every day to handle all things in my life, as You want me to handle them. Do not let me handle them, as I did yesterday or will tomorrow, as each day and circumstances in my life is different.” +
