There is 2 distinct idea that I have encountered during my highschool days on how are we going to respond the invitation of Jesus Christ in our lives. One is the acceptance of Lord and Saviour and the other is the total surrender to Him. My cathechist in Campus Evangelization, my fav Catholic organization in school, introduces to me the latter - and I prefer that one- the total surrender. 

Todays Gospel deals with that I believe. When His apostles notices that its getting dark and there are still lots of people around with them listening, they are bit worried on the situation. This is deserted place, they say, and these people needs to be dismissed to let them find food on nearby villages and farms. Later in the story it goes that this happens one of the great miracle performed by Him feeding the people  from 5 loaves and 2 fish. 

When deciding to accept this invitation, there is a level of intensity it requires for each of the respondent. Intensity of our trust and faith that despite of all odds He will lead us on our journey with Him. Also I may have failed from time to time but It always go back to the question on how I trust Him.

Of course this is not a bit on being irresponsible, where I neglect my duty to my family and waiting for miracle to happen but In the context of being with HIm on how I invite him on my daily chores together with His instruction.  The struggle to survive is real of course, we knew here especially these time, financially for some of us, or for some our health and emotions its hard but I still believe that He wont abandon us and He will stay with us until our final return on His home.

Kindly join me in the prayer - Lord, my trust in You at times is weak.  At times I doubt Your goodness and Your providence in my life.  Help me to always trust more in Your gentle invitation than in my own conclusions in life.  Help me to be led by You always so as to live daily in accord with Your perfect plan.  Jesus, I trust in You

God bless us all. Good evening.
