God Thoughts

22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A

Matthew 16:21-27
22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A

[Jesus] turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are an obstacle to me. You are thinking not as God does, but as human beings do.” Matthew 16:23

When my thoughts flurry and squall, I hope God thinks calmly, without hurry, in an orderly and harmonious fashion.

When my thoughts descend into despair about the heartaches and violence in our world, I hope God thinks healing into the grief and peace into the unrest.

When my thoughts dwell on what’s wrong with me, I hope God thinks I’m loveable and precious and right where I’m supposed to be.

    I know when your thoughts are all over the place, God does exactly what you hope for. How could He not, when I see such a beautiful soul in you? God Bless, SR

    I am coming to know that God loves me and understands me far more than I do. Sometimes I forget, but I’m remembering more and more. God sympathizes and understands my weaknesses.
