I have given everything

July 12
“I have given everything to my Master: He will take care of me. The best thing for us is not what we consider best, but what the Lord wants for us.”
– St. Josephine Bakhita
Today’s Reflection:
Is there something that I am holding on to and which I am afraid to surrender? What is it? Can I trust God to do what is best? Now, in confidence, I will release this concern to Him.
