Life is full of decisions to make on a daily basis. Sometimes when situations look bleak, the best choice to make is a chance that we can take. What is the chance? Our Lady said on May 2, 2008:
It is not possible to escape the storms that come in the situations of life. Since the storms will come no matter what, why not at least be living with Our Lady? What does one have to lose by doing so? A Friend of Medjugorje tells us:
“…Are we willing to do for the spiritual and eternal life what men throughout the ages have done for earthly life in saving themselves? Too much planning builds bureaucracy. Too much thinking can stop you before you start. How much are we to trust in Our Lady’s plans and Her messages? We do not have to know everything, the outcome, etc. Sometimes it takes just leaping in to follow Our Lady’s messages, even if it causes us more suffering and hurts, we know after we take that ride, we can look back up at the dark clouds we were in and then see by taking a chance on Our Lady that everything turned to our favor…”1
If you are unsure of where you are at this moment in life, take a chance on Our Lady, and watch how your life becomes different. Everything will turn to your favor, even if at the moment it does not appear that way.
