Spiritual Goals

January 11th, 2021 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Are you assessing your New Year’s resolutions after a couple weeks of resolve? Did you make a spiritual resolution? Because a spiritual life has goals and practices that engage us in our formation, it is open to a New Year’s resolution. This spiritual resolution doesn’t need to be taxing or arduous. No, our spiritual life is meant to be joyful, because we are being transformed into Jesus Christ, who lives in us. Paul writes in Galatians: “The life I live now is not my own; Christ is living in me. I still live my human life, but it is a life of faith in the Son of God.” Do you have a spiritual goal? Most probably, but if you want to do more, I suggest becoming more mindful of living the life of Christ at work, at home, or wherever you may be. Look over your day in the morning to set yourself a goal and examine your day at night. Then be grateful for the ways Christ has lived in you.
