Today we read in the gospel of St. Mark the familiar story of Jesus transfiguring Himself before some of His apostles, on the top of Mount Tabor. This was a profound moment for the disciples and they wanted to stay there with Jesus forever. They did not want to leave.
In our daily lives we sometimes experience this kind of “God moment” when we can truly sense God’s presence in our lives. Our God is a God of unconditional love and when we truly feel God’s love we don’t want the experience to end. These “God moments” can be at the expression of a small child, going to Church, praying, seeing an old friend or a conversation with a trusted confidant.
These moments are truly a gift that help us to renew our inner strength. It is in these “God moments” that we are able to renew our commitment to following the path that God has set before us. We are able to once again choose life that we may live in the abundant happiness of God.
God love for us is infinite! God knows exactly what we need, and when we need it, so during times of trouble or great joy, let us always be ready for the gift of “God moments” in our lives.
