Respond In All You Do With Love
January 24, 1994 2:50 a.m.
Jesus: I want you to write a special message to everyone. I am God and I am talking to you. You are My messenger to reach many. This is not a little task. This is a big task. Thank God that He has given you such a gift. I want you to thank and praise God! Look how fast you are attacked and torn to shreds. That is how Satan works. Think of what he said. Listen to the words. Are they not just the same that constantly tell you in your head that you have not done enough, that God is upset with you, that You aren't doing it right, that You should be ashamed, that nobody is like you, that you didn't do it right, that you didn't do enough? Yet you are spending your life trying to serve Me!
I am pleased with your efforts to do My will. You are right to always try harder. I tell you what I want. You must say the prayer for Union with Jesus constantly. Make yourself selfless and unattached. Be of a clean heart, always ready to be led by My hand. Your days of sufferings are not over. This world will be tested more and more by My might. Continue to pray--I mean every day, all day!
Get up early. Offer up the sacrifice to Me. Pray the Morning Offering with your children. Make your whole day a day of prayer. Come and be with Me all day in your mind. I want your constant union with Me. Silence Satan who is telling you constantly that you should be ashamed and that you have not done enough!
Do not focus on your attempts to do My will. Focus on Me, My love, the job at hand. Do not worry about yourself. I am God and I want to use you. If you are worrying about how you did and how you should improve, you are focusing on self. Be spontaneous and constantly in prayer. Satan is the Master of Deceit. He wants you to always feel bowed down.
My life within you makes you vibrant. You know you are constantly struggling to do My will. You try harder to do that which your heart is telling you to do. I do not demand perfection. I want love. Try to serve Me with all your heart. Think of your great love for Me and know this is what beckons you to serve Me so ardently.
Respond in all you do with love. Love is the answer. When others hate you, forget their hate. It is Satan using them. They are blind and in need of your love. Be selfless. Do not worry how others offend you. Say, "Thank you. You have given me such an opportunity for grace." What a gem. Look at Me on the cross. Offer it up and forget yourself. You have work to do, don't ever give in to self-pity. You cannot do My work and let Satan taunt you through others.
Realize that, when others are being mean, it is Satan who acts through them. Come and be alone with Me and read the Blue Book. Say "thank You, Lord" for your trials. This is such a high form of prayer, to not react to another's anger! You are to say what I prompt you to say and go away and pray. Don't give in to attacks by Satan. Say "thank you" and do as you think I would do.
Do those things that you would never have done. When others taunt you and are mean, do not respond with anger, but love. If someone is attacking you verbally, go away. Do not be attacked. Do not even listen to what they say. Believe Me, it is Satan who speaks through them. So those words are ringing in your ears? Forget them and offer them up. Don't dwell on any words of Satan. They should sound like the silly arguments he plants in your head.
Concentrate on Me. Say thanks for the opportunity for grace and forget the words of the attackers. They are the empty words of Satan to get to you and shame you. Oh, how he aims to shame you and tell you others are watching your ways! They see what you have and are jealous, so they criticize you. Keep doing as you are doing and praise God they are watching you! You know what you are doing. You are striving to serve Me. They are, indeed, watching. By your good works others are being fed. I minister to others through your example.
Come to Me, little ones. Come at work, come always in your hearts. I am there to tend to your littlest care. I am your ardent lover. Have a two-way conversation with Me. Don't tell any more people what a sad soul said to you. Come and tell Me in your choir, at work, in your home, in your car. I am there, your best friend, ready to listen with love. Let Me kiss your wounds and send you out to play.
You are freed in Me. I am God and I can take a hard day, when Satan is really pressing on your mind, and lift your hearts up in a second. Or I may let you suffer and help you to offer it up for grace. Whatever I do, I will be teaching you a mighty lesson.
Listen all day with the ears to be taught by Me. Every minute is a day in My school. My big lesson is to remain selfless. Do not bring your selves back to yourselves. Remain steadfast in Me. Do not complain to others. That is a great opportunity for grace and complaining brings you back to yourself. Carry your crosses and, when the burden seems great, leave them at My feet and proceed with doing My work.
I am with you, little, beautiful ones. I love you intently and I am by your side. I am being attacked when you are. I have known all your trials and their frustrations. Come to Me and I will give you rest. I love you!
Prayer for the Hardened Heart
Jesus, place Your hands on my brother. His heart is in need of Your healing. His heart is dark and hard and he needs You to melt all the hate and anger that has made his heart black and cold. Thaw his heart with the warmth of Your love. Let the fire of Your love turn his heart soft, vibrant, aglow inside, with Your rich love.
Let the heart be as Yours, red and filled as a furnace with Your love, red outside, burning with white light and heat inside. Melt the trouble away. Cast the devil and his hatred back to hell. Command him to stay there and never to return to the heart of my loved one. You are all powerful. You I adore and honor and praise. You I am forever thanking for Your great glory. You I love intently.
Thank You, Jesus, for responding to this heart.
We love You so!
