These past few days, I've been happier then I've been in a while 😊. Why? Because God has been guiding me in the most beautiful ways through the different events of life. I'm very joyful right now!
For a long time, I was afraid of God's Will........afraid He'd ask me to do something I didn't want to do, afraid of stepping out of my comfort zone, afraid I'd loose something (I'm not even sure what).
I went through life, blazing my own trail, and stubbornly refusing to leave everything up to God. I gripped with all my might the steering wheel of my life, even as I knew that what I held in my hands wasn't actually there.
I'm amazed at how gently and kindly Our Holy Jesus led me back to the truth........how attentive and patient He was as He showed me just how perfect His Holy Will is for me.
As I knelt before my Blessed Lord in the Holy Tabernacle this weekend, I finally let go. I finally began to understand just how much I needed to trust in Jesus.......how necessary it is for my salvation and search for holiness.......giving the permission I didn't need to give to the One Who Knows every thought, every hidden feeling, every truth of mine.
Life is hard, but it's also radiant if we let God direct our lives. The smallest hardships, the biggest difficulties, the deepest anguish: all go unnoticed when our eyes are firmly fixed on the Beloved, Bleeding Heart of Jesus.
There's an unearthly radiance to such a peace.
Gloria in Excelsis Deo!
