SISTERS' PERSONAL STORIES
Sister Roberta Fulton, SSMN
April 1, 2020
God can never be outdone in generosity!! No matter how much we try to be generous in our life’s mission, God always gives back a hundred-fold and more.
I can still remember the day I entered the Sisters of St. Mary at 18 yrs. old and with youthful enthusiasm dreamed about all I would do for God. Needless to say, at 76, I now have plenty of wisdom and experience to know it is God who does for us. With his unconditional love, we are guided, gifted, empowered to be his presence in this world, if we allow his Spirit to work within us.
The blessings I have received are like the stars God showed Abraham---impossible to count! Many times I reflect on them so that I may never forget God’s love and faithfulness.
To be a disciple is not without cost. Throughout my life I’ve had to learn to ‘let go’ of my strong will, take leaps of faith, and trust wholeheartedly that what seemed like darkness would come to light in God’s time. Yes, sacrifices were made but nothing worthwhile in life is without cost.
I thank God for that special grace to have said ‘yes’ when I was young and pray for his grace to be faithful as I near my journey’s end.
And remember for your life, God will never be outdone in generosity!
