It is often said that the road to success is paved with some degree of hardship, some level of struggle but if you remain resolute and work towards success you will achieve it. We continue with the story of Jacob and today we see how God has blessed him and name him Israel. He had to wrestle with God though he had to muscle up until daybreak with that, he got his hip broken and kept keep going on.

You must have a passionate attitude to succeed in life. You must see yourself as Success not failure even though you are up or getting up. I like the named word ‘Peniel’ because that is exactly what we are going to say when we see God our Creator face to face. Yes Peniel! that see God face to face.
Eternal life is in Christ that is why He urges us to pray for a rich harvest with more laborers for His kingdom. The mission of Christ is for us to go to heaven and lead others to heaven with the good news that has been handed on to us together with the Sacred tradition. Let us go about doing good and spreading the Good News of salvation The world is full of good people if you can’t find one be the good one.
Pray for more Laborers!
Pray for a rich harvest!
