Today’s responsorial Psalm is, “Here I am Lord, I come to do Your will.” We all know it is best that we follow the Lord’s will. But sometimes when His will conflicts with our will, we don’t always do what is right.
Sometimes I make choices based on what I want
without too much consideration to what God wants. And at the time, I do not see how His choice
would be any better than mine. But with
time and age we begin to realize that His will trumps our will every time. I am not saying I have it all figured out and
always know or choose the right answers, but I can look back and see
improvement; that’s encouraging!
So I continue my life, day after day, making new
decisions and learning from the mistakes I happen to make. One of my favorite quick prayers to pray
throughout my day is simply, “Lord, help me to choose Your will and to make
Your will also my will.”
“To do Your will is my delight; my God, Your law
is in my heart!” - Psalm 40:9
