Everything about God is great, but one of the greatest things about God is that he seeks us even we do not seek him. When we are at our personal spiritual lows, ignoring God for our own selfish reasons and gains, God seeks us out.
Lately, I have been pretty bad at seeking God. Despite resolving to go to daily Mass every day for the spiritual good of my soul in receiving Jesus daily in the Most Holy Eucharist, I do not go. Despite my confessors’ advice of strengthening my daily prayer life, I do not pray as I ought. I have left Jesus by the wayside. But he never does the same to me.
Jesus is with me and he is calling me. He is calling me to a particular way of life, and I am trying to avoid it, avoid him. But I know he is calling me and that he won’t give up on me. I know he is calling me to a vocation. And it is fitting that it has been on my mind all day today, this day, because it was exactly three years ago today that I was sitting on an overturned bucket in a beet field contemplating my vocation. Today I contemplate it, and I desire to give more of myself to God because that is what he is seeking. He is seeking my entire soul so that he may accomplish the work he has begun in me.
