What’s In Your Bag?...

Our guest blogger is Teresa Tomeo, syndicated talk show host, motivational speaker, and author.

Today’s modern American woman is the queen of multitasking—juggling, jobs, children’s homework, housework, church commitments, social commitments…you name it. You probably consider it a good day if you actually have time to read a few ingredients on the back of the cereal box. You get the picture…and that is exactly why I wrote Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag. We’re all busy. But deep down we also know that none of what we do really matters if we’re not rooted in something or someone much bigger than ourselves.

Our often toxic and increasingly secular society tells us just the opposite—that we no longer need anybody, and we certainly don’t need God. We can figure out this thing called life on our own. It’s not really that complicated, because we just live from one experience to the next. Whether it’s the promotion, the weekend in Vegas with your BFF, splurging on that new top, or finding a new boy toy, it’s all about you.

What the world is selling women is a big, fat bill of goods. Deep down you’re looking for something more. But at the same time, you’re trying to figure out how to fit that “something more” in to an already crazy, hectic life and an already stuffed-to-the-gills handbag.

Maybe you’ve already come a long way in your journey with Jesus and just want a daily spiritual pick-me-up, a dose of good news—the Good News actually—to encourage you, to keep you grounded or perhaps to motivate you to dig a little deeper. Maybe you are just making your way back into the arms of Christ. Whatever your particular situation, you’ve come to the right place because Walk Softly is designed to fit into any size purse as well as any lifestyle, no matter where you are at in your faith.

It is also my sincere hope that my book Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag just might give you that little kick in the rear we all need from time to time to help us refocus and get us back on the right track. So grab that great bag of yours; get ready to head out the door and take no prisoners, but not without taking this devotional with you. Here’s hoping and praying my book will lighten your load and put a little more spring in your step.

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
