10/15/21 Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Memorial of Saint Teresa of Jesus
Even The Hairs On Your Head
Jesus: “Come, My little one, bow your head towards Me and let us talk about something that is difficult for you. Will the suffering you do for Me be many?” (Jesus) (October 15, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.” (Luke 12)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, You remind us so beautifully today that no one has escaped Your notice. Every hair on our heads has been counted. There is nothing that we are going through that You do not know about, nothing that is a surprise to You. Lord there is so much that may be difficult for us- many of us are walking through illness, loss, worries, fears, so deep in the valley we are not even sure there is a mountaintop. Will our sufferings be many? We do not know but we know that You hold us in the palm of Your Hand. Today’s saint, St. Teresa of Avila said that to have courage for whatever comes in life, everything lies in that. Lord, we cannot have courage without total trust and surrender to You. How comforting to know that no matter what happens today that You hold the future and that life is worth the living just because You live! (Because He Lives, hymn).
