Making an appointment with God is very different than with a doctor, dentist, or whoever. It’s so important to be on time or call in to cancel if we can’t make it. With God, He is available 24/7 — even to everyone at the same time. However, it is a good practice to figure out a schedule; take time to start your day with prayer and end your day with prayer, and some in between as well.
I guarantee your day will go better if you do, asking God for help, thanking Him when He does. Sometimes it seems our prayers aren’t answered and we tend to forget that for whatever reason sometimes God says no. Only He knows the reason and sometimes we realize it as well.
Let us not forget God set aside one day of the week that we especially pray, praise, and glorify Him: Sunday. After that, do something special with your family or friends.
The world holds a lot of darkness. It is like a deep dense fog. Somehow we need to navigate through that. Let God be your guide as Satan is trying to get our attention for an appointment. Quickly order him back to hell: begone Satan!
Have we taken the time to get to know, love, and sense God in this world so as to be happy with Him in the next? Remember Jesus commands to mankind “as long as you did it to the least of my brethren, you did it to me.” There lies the secret to Heaven: “I was hungry, you gave me food; thirsty, and you gave me drink, etc.” The works of mercy keeps your appointment to fulfill them.
Mothers, fathers, and grandparents, during your appointment with God, don’t forget to ask for graces upon your children and grandchildren. Remind them to make appointments with God as well. We’re all in this together. We must help and pray for one another.
With all the appointments waiting to be heard, let us especially remember Jesus and His mother Mary as well. She keeps an appointment on the 25th of each month in mediating for the world. Our guardian angel is waiting for our contact. The poor souls in purgatory additionally await our prayers. Make all these appointments today: tomorrow may be too late. However, if you find yourself near death’s door, don’t despair. God waits until our last breath for us to say we’re sorry — His mercy awaits us. Whatever sin we may have committed, it is no match for God’s mercy.
I want to thank all my dear readers for keeping appointments (reading my articles) now for eight years. I enjoy my time with you immensely, I love you all and pray for you daily.
