Reflection 57: A Fire Within Your Soul

Is it possible to know that someone has a deep interior life of prayer?  Even though this is “interior” and is a spiritual reality, is it possible to sense this externally?  Most certainly it is.  In fact, the deeper one’s life of prayer the more that this interior life will shine forth for others to see (See Diary #172).

How about you?  What does your soul radiate?  When people see you, what do they sense?  Certainly our perceptions of people can be wrong at times, but when God is alive in an abundant way, those who have eyes to see will see.  Those who are hungry for God will perceive His presence in your life and be fed by Him through you.  Reflect upon how radiant your interior life is.  And reflect upon whether or not that burning flame within is shining forth for others to see.  And if it is not burning brightly and intensely, today is a good day to kindle that fire within.

Lord, I invite You to come live in my soul.  I invite You to fan into flame the spark of faith that I have.  May Your love and Mercy become a blazing fire in me so that I may be consumed by You and so that others may sense Your love through me.  Jesus, I trust in You.
