Hello, brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. May you all receive the grace of Faith, Hope, and Love.
This morning I was at Blessed Mother’s Consecrated tree where I go every morning for prayer. I had a very rough night the day before and one of my brothers in the community had a dream concerning Derrick after which the Lord prompted us to pray fervently and very intentionally for him this week, as he made it clear to me that I was being lazy in prayer concerning him. He has gotten cold feet in coming and has stopped communicating with me frequently. Please continue to pray for him.
So this morning I was feeling really discouraged and had no inspiration to try to listen to get a message. However, I knew I couldn’t lean on my feelings, so I pressed in any way, to hear what Mother had to say.
Good morning Mother, I am here.
Our Mother of Mercy began,
“I am so glad, My beloved daughter. Thank you for persevering and writing down the promptings from My heart to yours. Please don’t allow how you feel to cause you to be so discouraged that you don’t press in to hear my voice. That is one of the many tactics of your enemy. He hits you with thoughts first thing in the morning, to cause you to feel weighed down by the cares of this life which, in turn, get your eyes off of Jesus and onto your present situation. You begin to feed into the lies of hopelessness, and you feel as though your balloon was popped. And, in your dryness, you lose all desire to be faithful and diligent with anything, for that matter, because you are focused on yourself. Remember I warned you of this tactic a couple of days ago so this should not surprise you. But I am grateful that you persevered this morning.”
As an aside Blessed Mother has been appearing every day to Mother Clare in our Rosary meetings and she did warn us the enemy would strike us in this way.
“All is going according to the Lord’s plan. Don’t believe the lies. He is faithful, My very little one, just keep your eyes and heart fixed on him and he will do what he promised. Now back to what I was telling you.”
And here she’s referencing the thoughts that were coming to my mind before I began writing. On her tree is a sign that we made that says, “Faith, Hope, and Love”. That morning I felt like it was highlighted to me, and she began to speak to me about those graces. That is what got me writing. However, she addressed the discouragement I was feeling concerning Derrick first. She is such a good Mother.
Our Mother of Mercy continued,
“Faith, hope, and love are the three most powerful graces a Christian can obtain and walk-in. It truly is a three-strand cord that cannot be easily broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12). For this rope forms the rope of grace given to all who receive salvation, but the enemy of your souls does the best he can to unravel this rope and keep you hanging on by a thread. But you need all three, My beloved ones, and I will provide those graces to you to strengthen your rope of salvation every time you come to me in prayer.
“You see Love is the greatest among all these as the Lord mentioned in 1 Corinthians 13:13. ‘And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love’. They hinge on one another. With love of God comes great hope in His words, in His commandments, and His ways. Then your hope produces faith because you believe. Because you hope in His promises, you live and walk by faith not by sight, and faith produces service to God. Those who do great works in God’s kingdom it’s, because of their faith, their hope, and their love for God.
“The parable of the servants and the one who buried his talents, was given to you today to instruct and encourage your flock.“
That is the Gospel reading I received when I did my Lord’s Supper. I had begun to wonder if I was that wicked servant and if I was lacking in being faithful with what the Lord has given me. And she’s addressing that.
“My beloved children, the time is short, My dear ones, and some of you have continued to bury your talents because of your lack of faith. You do not trust My Son will provide for you when you step out. Or, more importantly, that He will do it through you. All good gifts come from above and come with provision until the day it’s matured. But just like with any gifts and any seed, as I mentioned to you all before, it must be nurtured and watered. You must water your gifts, My beloved ones, and must have great hope in God’s Goodness when he asks you to serve him. You all have been given precious gifts and treasures from Heaven. Some are apparent, and other gifts are hidden from you until the appointed time of your maturity. Nonetheless, we desire for you to use your gifts to serve in God’s kingdom.
“Your lackadaisical attitude can almost always be attributed to your lack of love for God. For you don’t love Him as you should and can be so prone to discouragement, losing hope in His Goodness, and His ability to do all that He is asking of you, through you. and your lack of faith to simply believe. Do you see a running theme, My beloved children? The Lord is expecting great fruit from you, My dear Heartdwellers, because you have been given much, and to whom much is given much is required. But many of you are hanging on by your shriveled and unraveling rope threads, and I am your Mother of Faith, Hope, and Love. I have come to encourage you today, to run to me.
Come to me when it gets difficult, when you feel you can no longer hang on or when you are needing more of these graces to be faithful stewards of what God has given you. Continue to pray the Rosary often and daily, for I have a basket of colorful, strong, non-breakable ropes of grace, I am ready to give to all who would come today to receive.”
That was the end of Our Mother of Mercy’s message.
