Fr. Dennis confirmed what Jeff Cavins had taught in our Bible Study of the Book of Matthew: Being poor in spirit is the foundation for the other Beatitudes. It calls for humility. We have to admit that we are nothing without God. I finally understand that. So I question myself: Am I poor in spirit? What does that mean to be humble? I struggle with some that I see who seem to have false humility, but then, who am I to judge their hearts? I guess that means I am still have work to do on myself.
Being a victim of sexual abuse, I have needed to be in control as much of it had been taken from me most of my life. So this surrender to God means I have to trust him, right? It has taken a long time for me to do that.
Do you trust God?
