Simple Grace - - From The Editor -

Dear child, now, now…you know that har­bor­ing re­sent­ment doesn’t help your heart to heal. Hear­ing your plea makes Me feel as you would if you saw a beau­ti­ful lit­tle kit­ten in­tent on head­ing out onto a limb that was sure to break. Like that kit­ten, you are pur­su­ing a course of ac­tion— with­hold­ing the love that nat­u­rally re­sides in your heart—that will lead to pain and fail­ure.

When you seal off your heart in anger, you stop be­ing a con­duit of My love. And when you stop giv­ing My love, you au­to­mat­i­cally stop re­ceiv­ing it. You end up cheat­ing your­self of the joy, love and peace that comes from a liv­ing re­la­tion­ship with Me. So just as you’d want to gen­tly pick up the way­ward kit­ten and place her on solid ground, so do I want to cra­dle you and love you away from any course of ac­tion that in­volves clos­ing your heart.

Do you have a few min­utes to re­ceive My heal­ing of your heart? If so, please al­low your mind and body to be­come still. Re­lease any phys­i­cal or men­tal ten­sion you may be feel­ing and be­come aware of the state of your heart. Think of Me and al­low your heart to swell with love and joy and grat­i­tude. Then imag­ine send­ing Me a wave of this feel­ing. Keep­ing still, feel your spirit lift as the Holy Spirit brings you My lov­ing re­sponse. Rest in this lovely lifted feel­ing for a few min­utes to give the Spirit time to heal and re­new your suf­fer­ing heart.
