Renewing my religious vows means being grateful to God for all the gifts He has given me during this year. Today is a new day, and every moment is a chance to turn it all around. Imagine that moment when Augustine finally surrendered. Weary of the world’s broken promises, empty in his heart and his soul, he finally turned to God. At that moment Augustine turned his whole life around. I look at Augustine and draw hope and strength from his story. I think to myself, “If he can turn it all around, surely God will work with me to turn my life around.” Finally, I would like to share a beautiful piece by Roy Lessin that touched my heart today. “Just think… You’re here not by chance, but by God’s choosing. He made you the unique person you are and compares you to no one else. You lack nothing that His grace can’t give you. He has allowed you to be here at this time in history to fulfill His special purpose for this generation”.
