We're on God's Time
How are you using the days you have been given by God? Are you aware of the emotions and ways of thinking that need to decrease to allow the spirit of God to increase in your life? It's never to late to stop and discover your path to increased grace.
Name your decrease. Do you anger easily, are you an envious person, do you want what you don't have, do you doubt constantly, do you pick at people just for the fun of it, does your speech reflect man or God, do you snub people you don't care for, do you...? Once you fill in the blank, begin to learn all you can about how to reduce the human tendency.
If your life's choices have allowed "the human" aspect of your life to overpower the divine within; aim to reduce its influence little by little each day. Where are you now? (95% human influence, 5% consistent divine) Wherever you are today, you are in control of the ratio for tomorrow.

Black Catholic Ministry Update
I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him. –Deuteronomy 30:19-20
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Yes, it is that time of year again – Lent. Last year we entered Lent with such enthusiasm with the expectation of celebrating the resurrection in April. Today, for many, the 2020 Lenten Season never ended. In a few weeks, we will hit the one-year mark of face masks and social distance. We will hit the one-year mark of the beginning of isolation, quarantining ourselves to protect others, and the devastation of COVID-19.
So, where do we go from here?
We go forward with God. We go forward with Christ, led by the Holy Spirit.
Have a blessed and reflective Lent!
