Wow. I think one of the reasons people are losing their faith is they have lost the wow factor of how much we are blessed. We have everything we could possibly need to get to heaven, God has made sure of that, yet often times we hardly use any of it.
Think of it like this. There’s a battle, and we’re using a knife, when we have a whole arsenal at our disposal. We have a bazooka, tanks, airstrikes, EVERYTHING WE NEED. Now to make the comparison.
We are using, lets say, grace before meals, and mass on Sunday, and wondering why things aren’t going so well. Hmm, well, we could be using much more than that.
The Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Sacramentals, Holy Water, Mass, Sacrifice, DEEPER PRAYER LIFE. We have it all. Everything we need is right before us, looking us right in the face, yet many don’t take advantage of what God has given us.
The major issue why we don’t take advantage of these great gifts??? We don’t OWN our faith. I’m talking about really owning it, to the point where daddy and mommy are no longer making us go to mass, pray, or pretend we’re somewhat spiritual. I’m talking about actually loving your faith for what you know it is, and wanting to grow deeper in that faith of your own accord. Because it’s up to us. We are the only ones who can make it happen. And we can do that by our simple choice.
To OWN our faith.
It’s the one and only first step to the rest of the problem. Everything flows from it. It doesn’t matter how much you do, you could say 10 rosaries, but if you haven’t owned your faith you’ll get nowhere. So take matters into your own hands and grasp what God has placed there for us! Own your faith! May God bless you. Zac.
