Well, here we go again! As we stand on the threshold of this new decade, let's do it with purpose. What do you want to develop this year, that you can take with you into the next 10 years? What do you (finally) want to leave behind?
Let's pause for just a moment and think about that. We discovered that actually, we often aren't really sure where we want to be purposeful in our lives, or what we really want to let go of. Sure, of course, we know our lives aren't perfect and there is a ton of room for improvement. But being very specific and intentional in identifying and then naming these areas proved more challenging than we thought. If you, too, are having difficulty naming those areas that need change, ask the Holy Spirit to come to your aid.
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.
