Thought of the Day July 7, 2022 The tug of God's grace

By 10:31 AM

 A story is told of a blind boy who was flying a kite. He enjoyed this pastime along with others of his own age. A passer-by, knowing him and wanting to mildly tease the blind-fellow, said: Hey, boy! Do you know where is your kite? You dont know whether it is on the ground or up in the sky, do you? Oh yes,said the blind lad, I do know! It is now quite a fair height up in the air. How do you know that?asked the passer-by, you surely cant see it. The boy replied, I cant see it, it is true, but I can feel the tug of the string! The tugof the string help the boy to realize the presence of the kite and to sense its height in the air!

How attentive are we to the "tug" of the grace of God on our hearts, which we call the move of the Holy Spirit? We don't see his grace, but we can become sensitive to the grace of the moment. That grace may be someone's name that comes to our mind or it may be a "chance" encounter with someone we haven't seen for a while. In God's plan there is nothing "by chance". Everything has a purpose and timing. So that we can become more attuned to the "tug" of the Spirit, we need to pray everyday for the grace of awareness to know when the Spirit is moving in us and what the Spirit is calling us to do in a given situation. How many opportunities have we missed? Lord, help me to be attentive to the move of your Spirit within me.
