YOU CAN RISE ABOVE YOUR BACKGROUND
Feast of Bartholomew, Apostle
Nathanael said to Philip, “can anything good come from Nazareth?” Life is full of amazing stories of people rising from obscurity to stardom, from a ‘mess’ to become a divine messenger, from breakdown to pioneering a major breakthrough. The saviour of the world grew up from the despised Nazareth.
Where there is no faith in the future, there isno power in the present. At any given moment in life, you have the power to say: “this is not how the story is going to end. You are made to rise above your circumstances.
Dear Jesus, lead me to the rock that is higher than my circumstances. Help me to rise and shine for the glory of your name. Amen.
Rev Fr Alexander Mwebembezi
