It’s crazy to see how easy someone can fall into the fires of this world. I will be the firs to say from experience. We curse, we have the mouth of a sailor, and we act like there is nothing wrong that. The music we listen to now a days, along with our reality TV shows, movies, and music videos do not help what so ever.
We preach that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, how we must maintain it physically and spiritually, but do we really do so? Okay, I would be the first to say that I do NOT fully maintain my body physically but I do have to work on that and I will. Going back to the topic at hand, the words that come out of our mouths are not the best. Saying “fuck” or “bitch” have become part of our daily vocabulary which is sad. We no longer respect our self nor those around us, most importantly,we do not respect Christ.
How can we be Christ to others if we are not Christ to our self? Why do we allow our self to become so consumed in this world and things of it? I leave you with one of my favorite scriptures that always reminds me to stay away from things of this world.
Adoration used to be something really frustrating for me to attend. Oh! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE adoration but I would always get into fights with Christ because I never felt that he was giving me answers, especially regarding my vocation. I would enter the chapel asking, “What do you want from ME?!” It was always about me, me, and me; no one or nothing else mattered. For several months, I suffered an ache in my heart. “No ones loves me, cares about me, or wants to know about me.” I had no idea of what I was saying or doing but I did know of what thing, I was worried about MY feelings.
Yesterday was interest, a friend approached me regarding “a crush” and tried to convince me to speak to this individual. I spoke from the heart and said, “No, thank you, I am not interested.” Later that night, I discussed the situation with some friends and I told them, “I can honestly say that I am extremely happy being single. I am in love with the most amazing man to walk this earth, Jesus.”
Today, was a challenge; I knew it would be a challenge. I got wrapped up in my own ideas and again I made the situation about me. I seriously believed someone was interested in me. Ha, no where close to what I was thinking. It’s a challenge to live a Christ filled live in this crazy secular world, where it tells you that you NEED to have a boyfriend/ girlfriend. The crazy part of it all is that I can say that I AM IN LOVE! To the one who talks to me I need some advice, who holds me when I am sad, gives me life when I am dying; he is hidden in the Blessed Sacrament and loves me more than anyone else in this world.
I recently began going to adoration with the words pouring from my heart, “What do me to do for YOU? I am your servant, use me as you will.” Even though this words bring a lot more suffering into my life, I know that I am blessed in every way! Something that is extreme difficult to realize is God’s love and I’ve personally learned it through suffering.
"Blessed be He, Who came into the world for no other purpose than to suffer." -St. Teresa of Avila
