A Brief Return…

Posted by Anne Elizabeth on November 6, 2008

In light of recent events, it seems appropriate to make a brief return to an earlier posting that touched on events due to arrive as the event to usher them has now occurred.  Take heart, be joyful, and calm for Jesus has NOT abandoned us.  But at the same time, be vigilant – both in prayer and in everyday life.  For the enemy has received his time – it will NOT be for long – but his time is now.  Be joyful in knowing that he (the enemy) has already been defeated, victory IS GOD’s!  TRUST IN HIM, keep your eyes FOCUSED ON THE CROSS. Do not allow fear and despair to creep into your lives (those are the enemy’s tools), keep them out by filling yourselves with the LOVE OF GOD.  Rejoice! Our God is with us ALWAYS, until the end of the age! (cf. Mt 28:20)

Isaiah 55:6-9

Seek the Lord while He may be found…

The days are fast approaching when trials and tribulations will make it seem that God has abandoned His people.  THIS IS NOT SO.  Hold on to the LordTRUST in His ways. Live your life continually for Him and your example will help bring many souls back to God’s heart. BELIEVE!

Call upon Him while He is near…

Am I not present in the Eucharist?  Even those who claim I do not exist seek out the Eucharist for their acts of sacrilege.  All who come to Me will not labor, hunger, or thirst.  They shall find their rest. Mt 11:28-30

…let the wicked forsake His way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts…

Does not Romans 1:21, 24-25: remind us that God does not interfere with our freedom to choose? His justice (Jn 3:35-36) though, will always be attached to this freedom, and is always a means to an end: To call all of us back to Himself; to assist us in seeing the folly of our ways, and to cleanse us of our pride so that we may serve and LOVE Him with pure hearts.

…let him return to the Lord, that He may have mercy on him…

Romans 2:4b: God’s mercy is infinite!  His well of mercy will never run dry!  Come to Him all you who are weary and heavy with burden… drink and receive your rest! Romans 6:8-11

For My thoughts are not your thoughts, mightier are My ways your ways, says the Lord.

No matter how often I think I understand God’s Ways, I really do not understand.  No matter the graces and blessings received, His heart is still a mystery to me.  But this does NOT diminish my Love for my Creator.  Instead this makes me turn to Him even more, for His Ways are always better than mine!  I can TRUST Him COMPLETELY, because I know His ways will bring me happiness and contentment that I cannot find anywhere else or with anyone else!

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My Ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Oh Lord, my God, why should You care for one so small and imperfect as me?  Your Ways and Your knowledge are so vast, how can You lower Yourself to come to me?  Haven’t I wearied You enough, Lord?  Have not my “ups and downs”, my “lefts and rights” sent You into utter frustration with me?

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ~ Mt 11:28-30

Addition: 11/6/2008 Psalm 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When evildoers assail me, uttering slanders against me, my adversaries and foes, they shall stumble and fall. 3 Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.

4 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.

5 For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent, he will set me high upon a rock.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies round about me; and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the LORD.

7 Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud, be gracious to me and answer me! 8 Thou hast said, “Seek ye my face.” My heart says to thee, “Thy face, LORD, do I seek.” 9 Hide not thy face from me. Turn not thy servant away in anger, thou who hast been my help. Cast me not off, forsake me not, O God of my salvation!

10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will take me up. 11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; and lead me on a level path because of my enemies. 12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries; for false witnesses have risen against me, and they breathe out violence.

13 I believe that I shall see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; yea, wait for the LORD!
