LIVING A LIFE OF GRACE

WEDNESDAY’S BLESSING

Forgive often and always

Living a life of grace requires a constant effort to forgive those who offend us. That does not diminish the wounds afflicted on us, but forgiveness renders freedom from resentment, anger and jealousy. That may take time but the reward is infinite. Forgiveness heals and makes everything new in us and most likely others.

A SPECIAL LETTER

The constant and quiet rain of today invites me to write about what rises in my heart in a special letter to God.

I cannot deny the desires to grow more intimately with You, my Lord, and to be transformed by the renewal of my mind in your presence.  In so doing, I attest to your holy Word:

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of grace of God.”  –Ephesians2:8

I thank you, Lord for this gift is Christ himself indwelling in me, the source of me being saved…and the key to mankind’s salvation.

My Friend, have you ever written a love letter to God?  I highly recommend it as a lofty cleansing exercise that liberates the body, mind and soul.  Your heart will expand with so much love, deepen your faith and your letter will be treasured in heaven.  If you do this, let me know how it goes!

AT THE END OF THE DAY…

Painting by Warren Salman

At the end of the day, come sit with me

I know how weary you are, busying about

Plans gone awry, your disappointment high

At the end of the day, come sit with me

I will undress your fears, relieve your stress

I know you will do your best tomorrow

At the end of the day, come sit with me

I love you like no one else can…

says the good Lord.

GROWING LIKE AN OLIVE TREE

Again, are these forty days and nights that I should attempt to correct preconceived notions and surrender ‘my will?’  A journey to deface idols, stamp out shadows and clear tears of remorse…yes, Lord.

I continually discover that Lent builds on itself as stepping stones seeking answers and comfort from God…always to realize that He loves me for who I am and not for what I do.  Christ’s heart is always ‘moved with pity’ for genuine repentance. This is true for everyone.

“I am like a growing olive tree, in the house of God; I trust in the goodness of God forever.”  –Psalm 52:8

May this Lenten campaign truly achieve ‘a clean heart’ in everyone’s soul.

THE GREAT PUZZLE OF THE PLAN

I recently saw a YouTube video (Misericordia Maria TV) where Jesus speaks to the world in Uruguay on February 3, 2021.  His message is ever gentle and I hope that sharing some of his thoughts here will be a source of encouragement.

Jesus speaks of the “angelic consciousness of the planet.”

If you untie knots on earth, in heaven knots will be untied also.

“Every human being is a precious piece of the great puzzle of the Plan.”

“Give thanks permanently; live redemption, be part of the mystical body.”

“Be love in the heart, serve, unite.”

“Be sacred temples of elevation and surrender.”

Such is this sublime message intended to restore our world.
