March 28, 2011: God Will Open a Window

~ by Mary Galvano

Doing God’s will isn’t always easy. It requires complete trust in the one and only Creator and His love for us. In life we think we know what we are meant to do, then all of a sudden like a flash of lightning, we are walking down a different path than we imagined. Eventually our life turns out to be something totally unique.

God doesn’t always give us what we want, but, He does always give us what we need. We are to walk on in faith. His plan for us is greater than anything we could ever imagine. Right now in my life I am at another crossroad as I am sure many of you are or have experienced.

The more I live the more I become filled with joy for the changes in my life. As one door is closing a beautiful new window is opening. As for the joy of change, I have come to learn through God’s will that I am more satisfied with the directions He chooses and the choices I have no control over rather than the choices I make for myself.

When we come to crossroads in our lives, thank the heavenly Father for them. He has another reason for your life. If you are unsettled with the way things are now in your life and nothing is happening, take time to listen to God for direction.

Find quiet places where you can be alone with the Creator to hear His voice. Adoration is a wonderful place for this. Often times, however, when we are at Adoration we tend to keep busy saying rosaries or reading scriptures. These are wonderful, but our Lord is present. What more do we need? Jesus is in our midst waiting to speak to us. How can we take our eyes off of Jesus? Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is a perfect time to have a heart to heart conversation with Jesus, feeling His holy presence consume you and to truly listen to Him. If while listening, you still can’t hear our Lord speak to you, than do nothing. Wait on the Lord! He wants you exactly where you are. When it is time to move on, He will make sure you do so.

Lent reminds us of Jesus’ walk in the desert and the lonesome road He had to take. Even when tempted He stood His ground and remained right where He was. He didn’t quit or complain about the situation at hand. Instead, He waited patiently on his Father’s will for Him. God had His back and wanted His son sitting at His Right Hand. God’s plan was bigger for Jesus than anything the world could promise. Jesus knew that better than anyone.

God has our back, too, stand still and wait on the Lord.

Soon, God will open that window for you. Just make sure to look out.
