Dry your tears. I know your heart and I hear your cries. Remember that in this life, people will disappoint and hurt you, but only to the degree with which you allow them to. It doesn’t matter what people do to you or what they say about you.
What matters is how you serve me.
I expect you to find compassion and prayer for all people, especially those who throw daggers at you. Remember that they are also my children and in need of your prayers. Do not stand with an apple on your head for target practice, but do lift yourself up to me, offer your prayers and listen to my guidance.
I will give you the grace to persevere.
Make no mistake that it is true, whatever you do for the least of your brothers, that you do unto me.
I love you.
From The Angels:
(As always, if these cards speak to you, they are meant for you.)
Self-Acceptance: You are important and know that you are called to add value to the world around you.
You have rich treasure inside you that people need. You have more in you than you realize, and you can accomplish more than you ever thought possible.
No matter where you are in life today, you have potential to increase, grow, to be strengthened, and to move forward. God created you for His good purpose and you are His masterpiece!
Spiritual Growth: Integrate spirituality to a higher degree in your daily live! Enjoy the process!
You are seeking a higher connection a renewed connection with the Divine and you wish you could immerse yourself read, study, learn, or meditate take it all in at once. The exhilaration of moving up to a higher level of consciousness is challenging slow down and enjoy the process.
Trust that the same Power that brought you to your spiritual path will also take care of everything for you.
Archangel Michael: Rapid change is often unsettling and can be stressful, but only because it seems to be too rapid and therefore threatening. Remember that you have agreed on the higher level to be part of the change, and that the changes are to bring in Light, Love, Joy and Abundance.
Operate from your Heart rather than your head. If there is fear, then it is coming from your head. Stay grounded and open, and be practical. If you are in the flow of Divine Creative energy, then you cannot fail.
Archangel Michael is making his presence known to you. Remember that you are Safe and Protected at all times, and that all is in Divine Order at all times! If you trust Divine Order, and not your old habits, you will be fine! God and the angels will help you stay true to yourself during trying times.
(Bonus: Divine Timing:) Change can be fast, yet keep in mind the importance of patience and Divine timing, developing a trust in the unseen mysteries of spirit working in your life.
The more that you can approach your own shifting with loving kindness, the smoother your road of change will be. On some days it may still feel like a roller coaster ride, yet your self-love can help you to have the necessary steadiness within.
Pay close attention to doors that are open to you. As you continue the journey of rediscovering your Divine nature, angels surround you with their love and blessings.
Lord, you know that talking and listening are so essential to good communication. Everyone wants to communicate, but sometimes the principle gets mixed up with the person.
Some people just love to talk and some like to listen.
How wonderful it would be to share – during a coffee break, lunch meeting, neighborly visit, after a church service, or between conference sessions – compliments, ideas, wisdom, happiness and all the satisfactions of Christ-living.
Lord, our faults and failings are many. Help us not to add to our sins by ‘talking’, by ‘judging’, by ‘comparing’, by ‘rejoicing in another’s downfall’, by ‘berating’, by ‘whispering’, or by ‘rumor-mongering’.
Please, Lord, lock our lips against talk that plays the game of tag.
‘Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones’ Proverbs 16:24
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in “wedding garments.” Amen. (A Prayer to Redeem Lost Time by St. Teresa of Avila)
Dearest Lord, teach me to be generous,
teach me to serve you as I should,
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and ask not for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your most holy will.
jesuit – st. ignatius loyola – 16th century
