No excuses

plow

Luke 9:51-62

And another said, “I will follow you, Lord,
but first let me say farewell to my family at home.”
To him Jesus said, “No one who sets a hand to the plow
and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God.”
Luke 9:61-62

Once I have made the decision to put my life and will into God’s care, I begin to live in the present, open to God’s loving presence and guidance. Although I can learn from the past, I no longer wallow in regrets for what might have been. I put my hand in God’s and allow myself to be led to love and forgiveness of myself and my neighbor, to discernment of my gifts and talents and how to use them in God’s service, to wholeness and healing.

    Thank you for your wisdom, so apt for me at this minute. Reminds me of the old folk hymn that goes: “Though none go with me, I still will follow…no turning back.”
