“God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord”
2 Timothy 1:7-8
When you are worried about what other people may think or say about you, you can become paralyzed.
“It does not concern me in the least that I be judged by you or any human tribunal; I do not even pass judgment on myself”
1 Corinthians 4:3
When you love our Lord and want Him to be known, you do not care about embarrassment or ridicule or any other petty thing. He is everything and you know that without Him you could not take one more breath!
Then you think of someone who does not know Him; how sad, how lonely, what suffering is involved!
Timing is everything. There is no way to make introductions if there is no openness to receive. So wait and trust in the Holy Spirit to make the opening and then give you the appropriate nudge.
Our apostolate, our purpose is to share God’s love. We have been blessed so that we in turn can be a blessing.
God bless you today!
