We must not let the distractions of our daily life keep us from doing God’s will.    At the beginning of each day we should offer a prayer for protection and prayer to do God’s will.   Catholics call it a “Morning Offering”.   It is definitely a good way to start a day.   I know many are suffering either financially or spiritually and at times depression may set in.   Focus on Christ on the cross, the mockeries, spitting and yelling.  Sometimes it feels as though we are on that same cross with Him.  With prayer and sacrifice we can overcome our situations and dig down and find positives in life that can change us forever.  God is a loving and just God.   If you are living in the state of grace and not in grave sin then; “Ask and you shall receive”.   Smile and let your light shine.
