Birth of St. John the Baptist
When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child, they were going to call him Zechariah after his father, but his mother said in reply, "No. He will be called John." But they answered her, "There is no one among your relatives who has this name." So they made signs, asking his father what he wished him to be called. He asked for a tablet and wrote, "John is his name," and all were amazed. Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed, and he spoke blessing God. Then fear came upon all their neighbors, and all these matters were discussed throughout the hill country of Judea. All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, "What, then, will this child be?" For surely the hand of the Lord was with him (Luke 1: 59-66).
Living with God is an adventure. He surprises us from time to time and that keeps life exciting and original. But it takes trust and prayer. If we never talk to God then we will live our lives in fear instead of living our lives knowing that we will win because God is on our side.
Lord Jesus, I trust in you.
