I Am Consecrated

Posted: January 31, 2016 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

## Jeremiah 1:5 Before you came to Birth I consecrated you.

## Psalm 70:6 From my mother’s womb you have been my help.

How wonderful it is to recognise God’s voice speaking to me during the Eucharistic Celebration. I wrote down the two beautiful lines that struck me to dwell upon them later.

One was from the First Reading today and the other was from the Responsorial Psalm. It did not dawn on me till I was in Adoration that the first line was a confirmation, a Blessed Assurance if you will of His great love for me as a unique child of His. I was consecrated to Him even before I was born! Made Holy set apart. Was I living my life then as my heavenly Father intended for me? How am I going to meet the demands of discipleship? Of sonship?

Then I saw immediately how the second line fit like a glove. It was an acknowledgement of God’s love and mercy. He was with me from my mother’s womb and He will be with me every step of the way.

Jesus my Lord, help me to remain Holy. Let me never forget that by choosing to sin is to deny my heavenly Father’s love for me. Be with me Lord, be my help and guide always. Amen
