Finding Your "Inner Iggy"

The life of St. Ignatius of  Loyola is an antidote for Christians who exhaust themselves seeking God's plan for their lives.  Ignatius founded the Society of Jesus, a religious community that has had earthshaking influence on the modern world.  But he did not do it deliberately by searching out God's design.  He merely surrendered to God in all the circumstances of his life. - Voices of the Saints by Bert Ghezzi

For most of my "Catholic" life I've gone with the flow for God's plan for me.  I have on occasion argued with Him about what I thought should be happening in my life.  Our Lord was patient with me despite my impatience with Him.  Eventually, His plan was revealed and I realized the wisdom of His timing.

If you are struggling with God's plan for you, I give you this prayer from St. Ignatius of Loyola:

Receive, Lord, all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my whole will.  You have given me all that I have, all that am and I surrender all to your divine will, in order that you may dispose of me.  Give me only your love and your grace.  With this I am rich enough, and I have no more to ask.

If you would like to make your own "inner Iggy, you can do so here.
