Spiritual Refueling

I am deeply reflective on the writings of Thomas Merton:

Spiritual Refueling

“So, faith comes from hearing, and

hearing through the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17

The Holy Spirit guides us in our lives;

Our listening important, for

the Spirit speaks through others.

We must be open to the Holy Spirit

and transform ourselves

to listen; the Spirit counsels love;

God’s word comes to us

through the Holy Spirit.

Our Pride brings us trouble;

our pride is a big problem;

we talk a lot and listen poorly.

Our character must include patience;

patience brings hope;

hope is the love of God.

When we love god, we receive

Spiritual refueling.
