A Heroic Choice

Every day is a day full of conscious decisions to either pursue holiness and rest in God’s love or to shy away from that love. To live for virtue or vice. Growing in holiness involves not only saying no to vices, but also saying yes to virtues. 

It is heroic to live a day just abiding in God’s love, because doing so is a choice, a heroic decision even though it seems so simple, for there are many voices during our day that call us away from God’s love. To choose to remain in His love is a powerful act of free will.

But we must also keep in mind, it is God who makes abiding in His love possible. Part of our task of growing in holiness is to simply, and humbly, ask for increases of His graces. 

“I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing”  – John 15:5

So simple and yet so heroic. 

“Jesus, I Trust In You”
