How do you find answers during life’s biggest moments? Moments filled with profound uncertainty, excitement and fear. Moments where you find yourself before several unmarked pathways, with no clear indication as to the safest way home. Next week, as I head to the island of Maui, I find myself at such a moment, for there, I will be submitting my finalized book proposal for publishing review. Please join me on a virtual pilgrimage to this beautiful island, as we strive to seek the voice of God in all its glorious splendor.
About one year ago, I wrote my story down when I heard the voice of God say, “Write this story down as a sign of our divine covenant, freely chosen and sealed this very day.” This is my story, a testimony of pain and spiritual triumph. A story about my small family of three on a miraculous journey towards the light of God’s love. Over the last twenty weeks, many of you have read various excerpts from my book, and have joined me on countless virtual pilgrimages around the world. Today, I come to you with one simple request, pray for me as I seek God’s guidance, trusting that all things will be accomplished according to His divine plan. Amen
Book Excerpt. Chapter Nineteen: Following the Light. (The Healing Eyes of Mercy. A Journey Towards the Light of God’s Love. By: Karen Sheehy)
If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from all sin.
The frank but necessary conversation with her husband had a huge spiritual impact on the young woman’s heart and soul. Recognizing her inability to heed the voice of wisdom, she returned to the confessional in search of God’s forgiveness. Humbly confessing her sins, she vowed to search for God’s wisdom in all capacities. This marked a dramatic change in her prayer life, for although God speaks through prayers and dreams, He also speaks in the humble words and actions of others. Receiving absolution, she felt a profound sense of renewal and joyfully soaked in the fresh air of God’s mercy. Remembering the wisdom in asking, she cried out, “Please, Lord, give me Your wisdom, for I am blind without your counsel! Is adoption my chosen pathway towards motherhood?” Immediately, she recalled the words just spoken by her Confessor, “There are many children out there in need of a loving home. Pray to the Father and ask Him to open your heart and mind to the beauty of life around you.” With that, she bowed her head in prayer and said, “Yes, Lord, I will follow Your pathway towards motherhood. I will follow Your pathway towards love!”
Closing 3:00 p.m. prayer for Divine Mercy.
Eternal Father, I offer You, the Body and Blood, soul and divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and the sins of the entire world.
For the sake of His Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the entire world. (Repeat two more times).
Jesus, I trust in You.
