Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for June 20, 2021.
Description: What’s stormy in your life right now? From where did this turmoil come? The Good News Reflection for the 12th Sunday of Ordinary Time teaches that Jesus wants to calm our storms, not cause them. Hardships are not punishments. They are the best occasions for growing closer to God. All of us have seasons of storms in our lives. Each of them are invitations to realize that Jesus is walking with us through it all, whether we deserve his help or not. They’re opportunities to learn more knowledge, gain more wisdom, and grow stronger in true faith. It’s a time of becoming more humble. Because of our increased need to rely on God, we discover more about his love, but only if we stop insisting that God should behave like a magic genie that we control to resolve our problems the way we think it should happen.
