“Get behind me, Satan. You are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.”

August 31, 2019

One Walk with Jesus is knowing you’re in the world, but not of the world… keeping your mind set on Jesus.

Jesus Always…

You may feel as if you’re losing the battle, but don’t give up! Hold tightly to My hand, and just keep standing. This is victory.
from page 253

Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Ephesians 6:13

A verse…

Mark 8:33 NET
But after turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind me, Satan. You are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s."

Formed…

The Way of Discipleship
As Jesus makes his way to Jerusalem, three times he predicts his approaching Passion. In response to the disciples’ rejection of his words, Jesus works to heal their understanding both of his kingship and of the true nature of Christian discipleship.

Praying for Peace
Streams in the Desert is a classic devotional, still going strong after more than eighty years. Perhaps one of the reasons for its popularity is that each day speaks words of encouragement to people who are distressed or suffering.
https://tbibl.es/8tYA

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him.
Romans 15:13

My Prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, thank You for this new day. For hearing my prayers as I continue to cry out ask for Your help, guidance and protection from the storms of this world. Thank You for all Your blessings. For each of mine, hear my prayers for each of them.

O My God, I place my trust and confidence in You, who will reward the good and punish the wicked. I believe in You and accept everything You have taught and revealed.
I believe that in one God there are three Divine Persons – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
I believe that God the Son became Man without ceasing to be God. He is Jesus Christ, my lord and my Saviour, the Redeemer of the human race. He died on the Cross for my salvation and eternal happiness.
O my God, give me a strong faith. Help me to believe with lively faith.
O my God, all-good and all-merciful, I sincerely hope to be saved. Help me to do all that is necessary to gain eternal salvation.
I have committed many sins in my life, but now I turn away from them. I am sorry, truly sorry for all of them, because I have offended You, my God, Who are all-good, all-perfect, all-holy and all-merciful.
I love you, O my God, with all my heart. Please forgive me for having offended You.
I promise that, with Your help, I will never offend You again.
My God, have mercy on me.

In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

And he said to them, “Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?”

August 30, 2019

One Walk with Jesus is knowing you’re in the world, but not of the world… walking by faith.

Check out this great video I listened to on FORMED…

Faith Not Fear
In the midst of a great storm the disciples cry out in fear. Jesus’s words to his frightened disciples are also a challenge to us. In the storms of our life, will we focus on the wind and waves and give in to fear, or will we keep our eyes firmly fixed on Christ in faith?
https://formed.org/l/zQGGaOg3

A verse…

And he said to them, "Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?"
Mark 4:40 NET

Suggested reading…

Mark 4:34-41 NET
[34] … Stilling of a Storm [35] On that day, when evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, "Let’s go across to the other side of the lake." [36] So after leaving the crowd, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat, and other boats were with him. [37] Now a great windstorm developed and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was nearly swamped. [38] But he was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. They woke him up and said to him, "Teacher, don’t you care that we are about to die?" [39] So he got up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Be quiet! Calm down!" Then the wind stopped, and it was dead calm. [40] And he said to them, "Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?" [41] They were overwhelmed by fear and said to one another, “Who then is this? Even the wind and sea obey him!”

My prayer for today…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, thank You for this day. Thank You for it. For all Your blessings. For each of mine. I ask that You protect them in the storm, and calm them as I know You can also calm the storm. Trusting in You, and Your will for us. For You are my God, I firmly believe that you are one God in three divine persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe that your divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which Your Holy Church teaches, because in revealing them you can neither deceive nor be deceived. In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
Amen.

Pray without ceasing!

August 29, 2019

One Walk with Jesus is knowing you’re in the world, but not of the world… always praying without ceasing!

A prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, thank You for this new day. Be with those in the path of hurricane Dorian. Guide, protect and give them Your peace. Thank You for all Your blessings. For each of mine. My God our Abba Father, who has given unto me each of children and grandchildren, and committed them to my charge to bring them up for You, and to prepare them for eternal life: while I left it to others for far to long, help me now with Your heavenly grace, that I may be able to fulfill this most sacred duty and stewardship. Teach me both what to give and what to withhold; when to reprove and when to forbear; make me to be gentle, yet firm; considerate and watchful; and deliver me equally from the weakness of indulgence, and the excess of severity; and grant that, both by word and example, I may be careful to lead them in the ways of wisdom and true piety, so that at last I may, with them, be admitted to the unspeakable joys of our true home in heaven, in the company of all of mine that have already passed and the blessed Angels and Saints. In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Lord’s Prayer (Our Father)

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Amen.

Daily Catholic Wisdom…

Our life will be a success if, at the moment of death, we have in our soul the life above our nature, the Supernatural Life. It will be a failure if, at death, we have not the Supernatural Life. For if we have it, then we have in our soul the powers that would enable us to live the life of heaven; if we have it not, we lack these powers and therefore will be totally unable to live the life of heaven.
Frank Sheed
from A Map of Life

A prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, thank You for today and all Your blessings. For each of mine. For today’s readings, sermons and song. For reminding me that narrow is the path to You, and not everyone will hear and feel Your Words. Thank you for calling me and mine to hear and feel them. Continue to touch our hearts. To keep us open and aware that the door is narrow, and we must stay focused on You and not the things of this world. In Jesus name I pray. Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
