Saint Ansbert was very dedicated to serving God, but still got caught up in materialistic and secular matters. Do you tend to get too caught up in everything that is going on in your life, and forget to spend time with the Lord? Ask God to help you focus more deeply on your faith, and to always turn to him when you need guidance and strength.
Gentle God, it’s easy to become obsessed with the details of my life. Help me to keep them in focus and always to turn to you for guidance and strength. (Taken from “Good News Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens.”)
