A zeal to do God's will

The lyrics from one of my favorite Mississippi Mass Choir songs, entitled "It Remains to Be Seen," say, "The safest place in the whole wide world is in the will of God. Trials come great and small just stay in the will of God. Come what may from day to day keep the faith and be still. It remains to be seen what God can do for the one who submits to His will."

Is this truly the way we are meant to live, driven by habit and trendiness?

Struggles with faith common this time of year

Last week, we observed Ash Wednesday, which is the first day of Lent in the Christian calendar. It occurs 46 days before Easter each year and derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of believers as a sign of repentance to God, according to www.stbarnabaschelsea.org.
