Refuge in Life: Psalm 62:5-8

Psalm 62:5-8

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
    for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory;
    my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your heart before him;
    God is a refuge for us.
 Psalm 112:4 When darkness overtakes the godly, light will come bursting in

Temple Of The Holy Spirit: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body

Via Verse by Verse Commentary

Jesus paid the price for our sins at Calvary. His blood was the purchase price. Jesus delivered us from our sin by purchasing the price of our sin by shedding His blood. Jesus met all the holy demands of God’s justice by this payment. God owns the rights to our bodies. That is why we glorify Him with our bodies. God dwells in the body of the believer. A building is not the sanctuary; believers are the sanctuary. The believer receives the Holy Spirit at the point of salvation (Ephesians 1:13,14). The Holy Spirit seals his eternal salvation immediately at the point of initial salvation. The word “from” emphasizes the supernatural origin of the indwelling Holy Spirit in us.

Jesus Gives Us Salvation: Acts 4:12, John 1:14

Acts 4:12 ESV

12 And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men[a] by which we must be saved.”

John 1:14 ESV

Soul of Christ, make me holy
Body of Christ, be my salvation
Blood of Christ, let me drink your wine
Water flowing from the side of Christ, wash me clean
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
Kind Jesus, hear my prayer
Hide me within your wounds
And keep me close to you
Defend me from the evil enemy
And call me at the hour of my death
To the fellowship of your saints
That I might sing your praise with them
for all eternity. Amen.

Our Lady of the Rosary Feast Day, October 7.

October: Dedicated to the Month of the Holy Rosary.

Via Catholic Online

The feast dedicated to “Our Lady of the Rosary” was instituted by Pope Pius V. It was to commemorate the anniversary of the defeat of the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto on the first Sunday in October 1571. This miraculous defeat broke the back of Muslim domination of the Mediterranean and was attributed to the prayers and processions of the Rosary confraternity in Rome. The Feast was later moved to the fixed date of October 7. In fact, the entire month of October is dedicated to encouraging the praying of the Rosary and reflecting on the mysteries of the Christian faith which it memorializes.

Pope John Paul II stated,

The Rosary, though clearly Marian in character, is at the heart a Christocentric prayer. In the sobriety of its elements, it has all the depth of the Gospel message in its entirety, of which it can be said to be a compendium. . . . Through the Rosary the faithful receive abundant grace, as though from the very hands of the Mother of the Redeemer.”

Jesus Walks on Water: Mark 6: 47-48, Matthew 14:26-29.

Mark 6: 47-48

When it was evening, the boat was in the middle of the sea, and He was alone on the land. 48Seeing them straining at the oars, for the wind was against them, at about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea; and He intended to pass by them.

Matthew 14:26-29

26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”

28 And Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” 29 He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water and came to Jesus.

Dear Lord, let my faith be full and unreserved, and let it penetrate my thought, my way of judging Divine things and human things. Lord, let my faith be joyful and give peace and gladness to my spirit, and dispose it for prayer with God.  Let it surrender to the testimony of the Holy Spirit.  In this I pray, Amen.

Matthew 14:26-27 But when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified, and said, “It is a ghost!” and they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.”:

Warriors of Faith: The Three Archangels.

The names of the Three Archangels are Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael.
Via Catholic News Agency

Saint Michael is the “Prince of the Heavenly Host,” the leader of all the angels. His name is Hebrew for “Who is like God?” and was the battle cry of the good angels against Lucifer and his followers when they rebelled against God. He is mentioned four times in the Bible, in Daniel 10 and 12, in the letter of Jude, and in Revelation.

Saint Gabriel, whose name means “God’s strength,” is mentioned four times in the Bible. Most significant are Gabriel’s two mentions in the New Testament: to announce the birth of John the Baptist to his father Zacharias, and the at Incarnation of the Word in the womb of Mary.

Saint Raphael, whose name means “God has healed” because of his healing of Tobias’ blindness in the Book of Tobit.  Tobit is the only book in which he is mentioned. His office is generally accepted by tradition to be that of healing and acts of mercy.

Via Heal With Grace

To St. Michael:
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of Battle; Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke Him, we humbly pray, and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, cast into Hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

To St. Gabriel:
Angel of Humanity, trusted messenger of God, open our ears for the quiet warnings and calls of the Most Loving Heart of Jesus. Always be in front of our eyes we beg you, that we may understand the word of God correctly, and that we may follow, obey and fulfill that which God wants of us. Assist us in staying awake so that when the Lord comes to get us he may not find us asleep.

To St. Raphael:
Arrow of Love and Doctor of God’s Love, wound our hearts with burning love, we ask you, and do not let the wound heal so that we may stay on the path of God’s Love everyday, and so that we overcome everything with love that comes from God.

Seeking God in the Midst of Distress: Psalm 42:5-8

Psalm 42:5-8 ESV

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
    and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
    my salvation and my God.

My soul is cast down within me;
    therefore I remember you
from the land of Jordan and of Hermon,
    from Mount Mizar.
Deep calls to deep
    at the roar of your waterfalls;
all your breakers and your waves
    have gone over me.
By day the Lord commands his steadfast love,
    and at night his song is with me,
    a prayer to the God of my life.

To stop wallowing in the pain, you must take the focus off yourself and place it on the Father.

As a Christian, you can take refuge in your all-powerful, all-wise, loving Father.
