Trust in the LORD

March 5, 2015 7:00 am

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose hope is the LORD. He is like a tree planted beside the waters that stretches out its roots to the stream: it fears not the heat when it comes, its leaves stay green; in the year of drought it shows no distress, but still bears fruit.” (Jer 17: 7-8)

In our busy, daily lives, it is so easy to forget the most important things in our lives: necessity replaces importance, and we have to do this or that. Importance is free from pressure, like love, friendship and prayer. When we remember the importance of relationship, when we “trust in the Lord” and when “our hope is the Lord,” we are able to draw from the source of divine wisdom, “like a tree planted beside the water.”

“Blessed are they who have kept the word with a generous heart and yield a harvest through perseverance.” (Gospel Acclamation)
