Labourers In The Vineyard 

Posted: August 9, 2017 by CatholicJules in Life's Journeys, Personal Thoughts & Reflections

Five precious days with the Lord has come to an end, having come back from a spirit filled silent retreat. And yet it is only the beginning of an adventure in His Love….

The Lord had called me to the retreat early even before I truly yearned to go. You see early in the beginning of the year all the way to slightly past Easter I was fully alive in Christ, serving Him faithfully. But with certain changes, I had spoken up against the practice of someone anointed by the Lord and was punished like Miriam in numbers 12:1-13. I became a leper dying slowly being eaten up inside. Even my love for my community began to thin. Hence I heard His call, ‘come to me all you are burdened and weary. I will give you rest.’ Matt 11:28 Only I overlooked the verse after that which says to learn from Him, for He is gentle and humble of heart.

On the first day, during Adoration, I had a vision of myself running swiftly through a wheat field with my Lord. Then He asked me “did you see the darnel? ‘ I answered,” Lord I would not be able to tell the difference since I have never seen wheat up close let alone darnel.” Then He replied,”I see only Wheat” The Lord only sees the good in us, that is how loving and merciful our Lord is.
