Hello, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. May you all receive the grace of great faith.
Good morning Blessed Mother, you asked me to come before you to hear your heart this morning.
The Lord had played the John Michael Talbot song, “City of God”, which surprised me and that let me know that was on his mind. I was thinking of what more do I need to do to prepare for my soon departure. I was also thinking, how hard things have been for so long and wondering if it was going to get harder in Ghana or any easier? I was at Blessed Mother’s consecrated tree which is my place of prayer and after receiving the Lord in the Lord’s Supper, I quieted my heart to hear from her as she asked me to. I said,
Sweet Mother, what is on your heart?
Our Mother Mercy began,
“You will be amazed at the fruit that awaits you in Ghana once you arrive. All your sacrifice, all your denials, tears in prayers were sowing into this field, Beloved One, although many times you didn’t perceive it.“
As she was speaking a memory came to my mind, of a rhema card I had pulled when I first arrived in the community and it said, “you are sowing into a good field”.
Our Mother Mercy continued,
“That field is this work, My beloved daughter. You weren’t aware of the mission yet, but we brought you here to prepare, and to sow into this field that is already ripe with harvest. Because the time is short, the Lord is doing an accelerated work with many souls, and it’s why you have felt your sanctification process has been so hard. It is all about souls, My little one, all about souls. Did you not ask the Lord that your desire was to draw all man to him and make him loved?”
Yes, Mother, I did.
“Well, it is not about doing great works for Jesus, that this solely happens, but it is also by souls living hidden, ordinary lives, who sacrifice greatly, and offer themselves as a living sacrifice that we take everything to use to bring souls into the Kingdom of Heaven. You will see all your labors and those who I have chosen to support you, have not labored nor suffered in vain, because this too, will be their reward, consolation, and joy. However, the work of salvation and your sanctification never stops until My Son returns to take His Bride. So you must continuously labor for His Kingdom, My little one, without complaint, and labor until the end. I am here to strengthen my beloved little children, to encourage them to continue to fight this fight of faith, no matter how difficult it gets, for great is their reward in heaven.”
And here I began to doubt her words and doubt even the Lord’s promises. These past couple of weeks have felt like I have been hit with an assignment of weariness that I just haven’t been able to shake off. Of course Mother reading the thoughts of my heart said;
“Faith, Beloved Little One, faith. Many are in a battle of faith right now, but you must have complete confidence in My Son, for what He has permitted and what he is calling you to carry. The battle is won through great faith and perseverance. You have a wonderful group of souls behind you.”
And here she is talking about the Heartdwellers Ghana intercessors, translators, and priests. It’s quite amazing to see the Lord grow us into a 25-member family, close-knit, always willing to help, and pray for one another. The Lord had told me a couple of days ago, “It’s time to tighten ship, the battle has begun.” We have been interceding for one another, others, and things in our nation, but I felt the Lord was prompting me it was now time for us all to get really serious about the mission. “Pray in the work”, as Mother Teresa said. So, we came up with a prayer strategy for everyone to really get focused and intentional about this mission. They all responded with such support and enthusiasm, as I have been praying for the Lord to really mature us all in the roles he has given us, and she responded to that.
“Your children are beautiful; so precious to Me. Do not worry, they will mature, be strengthened, and be my instruments that I will use to bring forth God’s will upon this Earth. Because they have made Me their Mother and entrusted this cause through my intercession, I will work amazing miracles on their behalf, and on behalf of this mission. You have nothing to fear. Give each of them the allotted time they need for your attention, nurturing, and instructions, for you are their mother. As you pour into them, they, in turn, will pour into you, this mission, and those all around them.
I say to you peace, My daughter, peace. You have been anxious, and restless for a while now. Trust that My Son is working all things for your good. My beloved children, praying the rosary will help you gain My trust, and confidence in My Son. For those who are anxious, unsure, and uncertain about what the future holds, when you feel overwhelmed with worry, come to me your Mother, and simply pray. “Hail Mary full of Grace the Lord is with thee, blessed are you amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, please pray for me now and in the hour of my death. And then take a deep breath and you will see your peace will be regained. You are my beloved children whom I love.”
That was the end of Our Mother of Mercy’s message.
Although she didn’t mention it, I felt strongly this message was to those who have sown in tears, in prayer, with sacrifice, and many sufferings. You have wondered, besides the salvation of souls, what is all of this for? Everything you have given the Lord has been seed to sow into your field. Your field can be your family, your marriage, your children, your ministry, a people group God has called you to reach, a lost friend or soul that you have been praying for to be saved, or a promise that God has given you. Like a promise of a child, healing in your body, a promise of marriage, a promise of restoration in our nation, and many other fields. Each of us has our own field, and you all have sown, some knowingly and many unknowingly. Stay encouraged, and hopeful for what is ahead.
Jesus and Blessed Mother know it’s been really hard for us. I feel we are all in labor pains and this field, this promise, this baby we have been carrying, is crowning. So we cannot stop now. That’s why I feel that they continue to remind us not to give up, the harvest just around the corner. Stay encouraged, my dear family.
God bless you until the next message.
