The Brand New Clothes

No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse.

Matthew 9:16

Many people want to live their lives to the fullest. Their potential to achieve just-mentioned goal can be measured, of course, by the amount of love they are able to offer to God & men.

The said love, however, manifests itself in many different and concrete ways. Now question may arise: How can a man distinguish his/her own dreams from the genuine Will of God?

In my opinion it can only be achieved through the ongoing process of an individual discernment in the real closeness to Jesus. Ask His Heart, not yours. All of that so He may grant you with the brand new clothes of grace; it is extremely important since many of us try to ask Christ for some new patches(graces), forgetting that they may not be suitable for the old clothes of soul that were made of man's dreams alone.
