I was praying in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel today and I had a few minutes before I had to head back to work so I was reading some scripture. Before I began to read I asked God to guide me towards what He wanted me to read. So on that note I closed my eyes and opened my Bible. It opened to the Book of Judith so I started reading. The first verse that hit me was Judith 4:13
So the Lord heard their prayers and looked upon their affliction; for the people fasted many days throughout Judea and in Jerusalem before the sanctuary of the Lord Almighty
To me, it was like the Lord was saying, ok…here’s what I wanted you to see. And the thing is, I was thinking about fasting and praying for several things that are going on in my life and for a general kind of individual spiritual retreat to deepen my prayer life.
Should I take this as this is what God wants me to do? Have any of you had this happen? Or am I reading too much in to it?
I mean I have read verses that hit me one way or the other but never in such a profound way.
