The word of the Lord came to Jeremiah,
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I dedicated you…”
We can say the same is true for us.  
The Lord has chosen each one of us
for a special purpose.  
At times we feel at a loss.  
We think the Lord is absent.  
Does the Lord really care?  
Then we remember that the Lord has delivered us
and preserves us for that special calling.  
Even when things are not going well
I wait for you, Lord.  
I am confident that your kindness
will follow me wherever I go
and that with you I can accomplish
what you dedicated me for.

— By a Columban Missionary
