Friday Truth in Love.🤗❤️🙏
“If you seek My Will and nothing else, you will experience the abode of My love; and the creations around you will be magnified in My goodness in your emotional and interior state.”(From Gianna below)
The older I get, the more I realize how much possessions are encumbrances. We grow up dreaming of a big house and lots of stuff, only to come to dream of living in a smaller house with less stuff. A place with fewer things to maintain, fewer things to cause stress and distract us from doing what God has put us here to do. Things that once caused momentary external happiness, that now collect dust as our energy wanes, and our time gets shorter. Our kids may or may not be entertained by going through all of our stuff once we leave this earth, but failing to simplify creates not only a burden for them, it causes us to leave this earth without a sense of completion. We’ve left a burden for others to have to deal with.
We live in a dynamic where we don’t even have to leave the sofa to fill our house with more stuff. All we have to do is think or speak about something and another ad pops up for something that makes it very easy to click and purchase. I sit on the sofa and a day doesn’t go by when things don’t get dropped on the front porch for someone. And every house has multiple large bags of trash sitting out front that go to the overflowing landfill. We’re drinking water out of bottles that cost more than gasoline when perfectly good water flows from most of our taps.
I’m eternally grateful that God has blessed us with a wonderful place to live for the last quarter of a century. I also realize that this is very temporary, not one bit of it is coming with us, and all of it will be reduced to dust in short time. The only things that will last beyond our physical being are the things we give to Him. The time, treasure and talent we give to others as we share His light in the world, and the work we put into our own interior being. I may watch the show “Hoarders,” and scoff at the situation someone has put themselves in, but as I survey my own “possessions,” I realize that I am a hoarder as well. We have a basement and two garages full of years of impulses. Things we had to have. Things that only serve to distract us from the fulfillment of God’s Kingdom. God is going to reduce us to a place of simplicity in short order whether we like it or not, and I pray that heavenly bliss will come from that reduction. We don’t have to wait for Him. He is calling us to simplicity here and now. May we find it, embrace it, and use it ths we might pour everything into Him. In perfect love. Totus Tuus.❤️🙏
As told to Gianna Talone Sullivan, August 6, 1992, I am your Jesus of Mercy Vol IV
“My dear one, I want My people to now know the importance
of simplicity. If your intention is to be good and
pure, it must be simple. If you seek My Will and nothing else,
you will experience the abode of My love; and the creations
around you will be magnified in My goodness in your emo-
tional and interior state.
For a pure heart is one that sees goodness. He, who has
a pure heart, will experience joy because that person will see
My hands in the sweetness of creation. But the person who
has apathy for himself is one who experiences the anguish
of life because he (no specific gender) knows not the state of
interior joy. For what God has created is good. The pure soul
will see this goodness without difficulty. Taking care of all
the little things of the world (for everything has value) in an
intention of simplicity, ascends your soul in a transformation
of God’s goodness.
As I purify you and make you clean, you may suffer the
markings of pain from worldly attachments. Those who perse-
vere and remain persistent in prayer, saturated in faith, move
from apathy to courage, and are transfigured in the likeness of
purity and joy. Life then becomes life! The fullness of color
and the fullness of the senses return to appreciate and to unite
in harmony with creation!
My dear one, each person created must stand alone before
God the Father!
My Father embraces each person with a love beyond your
comprehension. It is necessary that my people begin to strive
for an inner harmony of quiet and peace, allowing the way for
the unity of the Trinity to enter and find rest. Begin through
actions of simplicity and openness of necessary detachments
from human behavior.
My peace is with you in all the things of creation in the
world. Nothing is worthless! Every creation is of value, and
magnifies the illuminous love of God. Ad Deum.”
