Speak Lord: Make us new

DSC03602a call.jpg

Seek the Lord while he is still to be found,
call to him while he is still near.
Let the wicked man abandon his way,
the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn back to the Lord who will take pity on him,
to our God who is rich in forgiving;
for my thoughts are not your thoughts,
my ways not your ways – it is the Lord who speaks.
Yes, the heavens are as high above earth
as my ways are above your ways,
my thoughts above your thoughts.

First reading for the 25th Sunday of Ordinary Time
Isaiah 55:6-9

The future does not begin tomorrow, but today, now…

Indeed maybe it began to begin yesterday, with the first stirring of discontent with how things have been, and a sense of attraction to how things might be, perhaps also with a sense of resolution for change, and maybe also repentance.

But today, now, is for sure, the moment for the next step, a step closer to God’s will, and deeper into communion with him.
