Missing So Such!

It is a shame that so many Catholics miss out on all that God offers them. We go to mass and Jesus Christ, God is present. We get to receive Him in all of His power, glory and divinity but expect nothing to happen. For too many of us Communion is an empty ritual rather than an act of passion and love. Why do we expect so little?
With God there is always more. We worship a God of infinite power and love whose love for us is beyond measure; the God of the Universe for whom all things are possible. Our God wants to bless us immensely.
There is a world within the Church that most of us shy away from or don’t know. Yet it is a world where miracles happen and doctors are confounded, where people are healed in mind, body and soul. I know people who no longer needed operations, people whose cancer disappear, who no longer needed medications that doctors thought they would need the rest of their lives, people who lived decades after getting 6 months to live.
Our God is an awesome God capable of anything He wants to do. His love and mercy for us is incredible. But we put God in a box, thinking that He will only do certain things that He will only work through doctors and medicine. We aren’t open to all that God has for us, all that He can do, to the people He uses today. We are too much like the people of Nazareth for whom Jesus performed no miracles because they didn’t expect them from the carpenter’s son.
We face a choice. We can continue to keep God in a box and miss out on all God has to offer us or we can take the risk of opening our hearts to God’s awesome love and power. The choice is yours.
