Driftwood floating in the sea of the secular world cannot be lit up for it is soaked up in the cares, worries and desires of that World. Until it realises just who the creator is, how great, powerful and wonderful He is and makes its way into His hands it remains as Driftwood.

I have been tenderly dried off, having died to myself I have risen in and fashioned for; Him. The fire in me is lit and while I am not consumed by it, I burn brightly for the World to see and follow. That is His Will for me. My love for my Lord is above all and in that love and trust I offer Him everything. For I was made for Him and so is my family and He will never abandon us. I strive daily to never look back, but put my foot forward and with every step closer to the heavenly kingdom of my Father.

Lord Jesus Christ, be my guide for now and forevermore. Amen

First reading
Job 9:1-13,14-16

Gospel
Luke 9:57-62

As Jesus and his disciples travelled along they met a man on the road who said to him, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’ Jesus answered, ‘Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’
  Another to whom he said, ‘Follow me’, replied, ‘Let me go and bury my father first.’ But he answered, ‘Leave the dead to bury their dead; your duty is to go and spread the news of the kingdom of God.’
  Another said, ‘I will follow you, sir, but first let me go and say goodbye to my people at home.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Once the hand is laid on the plough, no one who looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.’
