VERONICA WIPES THE FACE OF JESUS (Isaiah 53:2-3, Matthew 25:40)
THOUGHT Veronica takes a cloth and wipes the face of Jesus, but it wasn’t just the sweat and tears, it was blood too. The very blood that he shed for us. REMINDER Pain and suffering are still very real in our lives, our love ones and this world. Remember to help people who are suffering around us. Invite our Lord to live in you and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you to know who to reach out to, not just the needy but even someone who is suffering from a broken heart. Ask God, please help me to do this because I need courage and self-sacrifice and I am weak with out you.
JESUS FALLS AGAIN (Psalm 38:6-22, Isaiah 63:9)
THOUGHT Jesus falls again, how hard must that have been to see him suffer and fall. But think about this… God knows we will fall again and again. Jesus continues to persevere in order to do God, our Fathers will.
REMINDER Remember that we are human and we will fall again and again, make wrong turns on our ride. Some may be simple failures, bumps in the road and some may be big blow outs, but be reminded that Jesus fell for us. Reach out to ask for help in prayer always. Do not give up, persevere like Jesus did and continue to do God’s work. Remember we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
Until tomorrow, be blessed
