God Knows a What He Is About

Be open to the fact that you have gifts to share, then…

Discern them.

Develop them.

Share them.

Never stop.

Whatever they are, no matter how big or how small they seem to you, they will make a difference, because God knew what He was about when He made you.

God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.

He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work.

I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place,
while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments.

Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still, He knows what He is about.
– John Henry Newman

Thought inspired most recently by my husband – meet the new bass player for the Mass with Youth at our parish. I love watching God at work! Can’t you just feel your soul bubble with joy 🙂
