Tax Forms and the Gloria
Journal entry Feb.1, 2012
I cannot find my Lectio journal so this will have to do. Even my pen runs out as I write this. Evil will not have its way… I will not be held back from sharing the Word of God. The more Evil fights against me, the stronger becomes my resolve.
He tried hard this past weekend. I received a complete rewrite of my speech just minutes before an audio check rehearsal in Baltimore at Spring Launch. With the help of a friend, I edited the original speech after rejecting the proposed version from corporate headquarters. The speech improved over my original. God is always to be trusted.
I’m reading through YOUCAT (Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church). In John 14:10, Jesus says: “The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.”
I am often aware of the Trinity within me as the driving force of my actions, thoughts, and words.
I awoke today and thought of the tax form 1099 I must complete and mail – unsure of how to do so – and beneath those thoughts, I became aware of singing. I think it was the Gloria and Who was singing isn’t exactly clear to me (my soul? angels? Jesus?) nor do I need to know. With God dwelling within me, my spirit and all of heaven should (and possibly can’t help) praise Him, three in One.
Imagine! Tax forms and the Gloria sharing the same space within me!
