Living for Him. What does it mean? To be a saint is to fulfill God’s plan for your life. But how do know what our individual calling is? This is a question that I constantly struggle with. Sometimes I focus on the small actions of everyday life; sometimes I think about and try to act for the future. Yet I am rarely able to maintain the balance between the two. It is as though sometimes I hold a map, with an arrow pointed at my destination. I know exactly where I am going, but forget about the little steps that guide me there. Other times I focus on the small steps, and concentrate so hard that I am just putting one foot in front of the other without a destination in mind. Somehow I must acquire the map, and make little steps towards my destination.
One prayer at a time. One action at a time. One day at a time. Each moment lived for the sake of the Cross; and my life will be full.
