Simple Grace - - Mood Index -

Dear child, what a won­der­ful thing it is that you can see through your own dis­guises! Many fool them­selves as they fool oth­ers, which leads to suf­fer­ing. By con­fronting your own de­ceits in the way you are do­ing, you can re­ceive the love and help you need to make them a thing of the past. Cre­at­ing cer­tain habits with small things is so wise be­cause these habits will carry over to large things.

I want you to try some­thing right now: Sit up com­fort­ably and straight and close your eyes. Stir up all the love and grat­i­tude you have in your heart for Me and then throw in a lit­tle joy. Imag­ine your­self send­ing Me this feel­ing heart to heart. Stay re­laxed and feel what comes back to you cour­tesy of the Holy Spirit. What did you get? A feel­ing of in­fi­nite love and light and peace and joy. A re­flec­tion back to you of all the beauty that’s in your heart. That glo­ri­ous feel­ing is who you are to Me. That glo­ri­ous feel­ing is so be­yond any­thing the world can of­fer: Why com­pete for scraps when you’re al­ways sit­ting down to a feast?

Please prom­ise Me that the next time you feel shy and anx­ious, you’ll take a short time-out to be with Me. Let Me be your mir­ror. What will I re­veal? That you’re a onein-a-bil­lion work of your Fa­ther’s art. That you’re able to change the world by chang­ing your heart. That I love you with sweet­ness and light that knows no bounds.

“One who is faith­ful in a very lit­tle is also faith­ful in much, and one who is dis­hon­est in a very lit­tle is also dis­hon­est in much.”
