CHILDREN, HAS YOUR JOY BEEN ENCUMBERED?
Take hold securely the hand of your Blessed and Holy Mother, She will lead you down the shortest and most secure path to Me.
It is with great sadness that I view many leaving My banquet table, that I have prepared for their food, which will nourish them, as they hunger and thirst for fulfillment in this life.
They seek Me in other things and places, or should I say they do not seek Me, but they are looking for happiness apart from Me.
The rich young man in Scriptures, was seeking how to gain eternal life, he was saddened in the answer that he should sell all he possessed and give the money to the poor and follow Me.
The man was saddened because he could not separate himself from his possessions, he had not found the happiness he sought, but he did not believe that they were causing him to be encumbered by them.
If you today are seeking a joy from Me, surrender to Me all that you possess or all that is possessing you, I am asking you today to surrender all that is yours, and entrust them to Me.
I want to give you the joy of freedom of heart and total abandonment from possessions, I am not asking you to leave house and family, but to free yourselves from a closed hand on what you own.
If soon it will be asked of you to leave these things behind, it will already have been decided in your heart to have given everything to Me, trusting in My provision of everything you will need.
I am to be your everything, thus total peace and joy that surpasses all understanding will be yours.
To the world at large this seems to be total absurdity, since they do not comprehend the invisible reality of God working among His people.
I want you to say with Me as I met My Apostles at the well of the Samaritan woman, ‘My food is to do the Will of My Father and to finish His work.’
In this way you abandon your thoughts and all that you desire to God, unburdening yourselves for the work of God, and leaving your concerns to Him.
I love you, and want freedom to be yours, it is for your greatest good in the fulfillment of the commission, to love God and others, that I ask of you to surrender now the things that encumber.
May peace fill you as I grant this grace, as it has never been so urgent before, and so great an opportunity for you to advance in the coming steps to the illumination of the world.
