😎🐫🎤 Last Thursday I experienced one of those random, by design, chance meetings with someone. It was a meeting in which I could feel God the Father’s presence so strongly that I was hanging on every word this man spoke, to see where God was leading me. At one point this gentleman told me, as I could see the physical excitement grow in him: “One person I’m excited to meet when I get to heaven is Daniel.” He then went on to explain why.
Friday evening Brian and I watched a movie titled A Matter of Faith, which asked the question: When you accepted God into your life, was it by addition or submission? That’s a question worth reflecting on….Did you just add Him into the life you were already living or did you turn your life over and submit to His will for your life? Where are you today?
Pondering the movie question and the Thursday conversation, Saturday morning God told me: “I want you to read Daniel.” Okay, it doesn’t get much clearer than that. I jumped on the treadmill and started reading. 10 miles later, I complete the Book of Daniel. So was it any real surprise when I went to Mass Saturday evening that one of the readings was from Daniel…NO.
Daniel is a great example of what submitting ourselves to God’s will is like. The faith. The challenges. The rewards. Seriously, who gets thrown into the lion’s den not once, but twice, and walks away each time a greater, more faithful man and servant of God? Crack open The Book, peek into Daniel’s life and see where God is leading you. Bless others and be blessed.
