Sometimes I think – how come the Lord is so connected to you, to me? A connection where He even reveals the little things. Such as the possibility of a mama-cat being near me somehow, then – there she comes a few days later! Appearing with her kittens, moving them to a new place – she chose one of the hidden places on the property we stay at.
A connection where He listens to the tiniest longings, such as fulfilling the little wishful desire to see a mama-bird in a nest with her little ones, upon seeing an abandoned nest under the house’s roof one day. Then a few days later, I notice there is a bird in a tree, hidden seemingly, laying on the nest with her eggs. The little new baby-birds grew up and left, but then, soon after a few days or weeks, there is another one, another bird laying on the same nest, with her eggs again! So thus, the Lord fulfilled that little longing twice, more than I seeded to dream of asking.
So I was pondering this connection, although wondering how come, one got to say, “I’m glad! Glad that He has connected me, He has connected you, to Himself. That is so fulfilling to the core of the soul. Sit and ponder it. See how beautiful it is to have a relationship with the Lord that is truly authentic, ethereal, and lasting, under His wing. Think!
You take me, Jesus, you make me Yours and bind my heart and soul to Yours. And I thank you for this amazing grace and gift. Now when I look at what we had in days past, all of that is so vague… Now, this life with you is so to the core of my soul. I sit and wonder how sweet it is to belong to You.
“Isn’t it?” Jesus says, “And I belong to you!”
His word made a soft smile appear on my face.
Oh Lord, how is it that… (I smiled) You know.. it’s … (I smiled again) unable to finish my words.
Then being caught up in a contemplative sigh, I just said: Thank you.
Continuing to share with Him: Life with you. Every breath. Each day. Each sunrise, every star in the sky, every animal You fashion to bring us a smile, every flower you shape, every mountain you sculpt, every smile on one’s face, every blessing unseen and seen. Every soul, Lord – everything, O Lord … Not to say even those I have no idea about, that you have in Heaven, somewhere hidden beautifully in this world… Oh Lord, it is a wonder. Everything literally originates in You, and so they carry Your stamp print and glory marks.
When I think of how You create.. How is it that You made those stones so solid, heavy, and huge, yet the atom within is an extra other detailed work? When I think how the water is made and flows, how it penetrates every place and crevice, yet when it hits strong; it smashes and conquered the surface in a sweep! And when I think of the clouds, seemingly so fluffy and light that you cannot catch them in your hand, as a vapour between one’s fingers… Yet when in rain, they are so loaded with water – water that is so heavy to carry in a bucket in my hand; yet tons of tons of water the cloud contains – these feather-light clouds, and they do not fall due to their heaviness! How intelligent is that??
And when I think of the tiny veins a rose petal has, how it sustains its life, I wonder.. wow, Lord. And to marvel now of your Angels, the unlimited realms of heaven, and every detail you created there… And even when I think of the colossal space this world under the water is, how huge must be the space of the waters above, and the vastness of the waters below, what depth to the foundations of the world… Wow, Lord… Even how the wind flows and reigns the sky at Your will…
Such intelligence and wisdom of how everything exists,
“And I could tell you more”, Jesus said. “But your brain could not fathom it. But many things are yet to be discovered even here while on Earth. The richness of what I created this planet to be, even now, despite its end times troubles and chaos, even now the world is filled with My glory.
“My world is still in this realm! Everything emanating beauty, that is a glimpse of how Heaven is. Despite sin and wickedness, the Earth still holds many of My fingerprints in creation, many things bear My mark of beauty as you gaze and marvel at them. Nature itself bears My glory as she is delighted to bring cheer to My loved ones who gaze at it, and marvel at the One who made them – that is how glory flies to Me; gazing, watching, and discovering something new and fascinating!
“Despite it all, My Heaven is still on Earth nowadays, in places, in gardens, in people, in the atmosphere. Although he (Satan) tries to destroy all beauty and creation I fashioned, he shall not succeed as he desires, for My creation is still My creation, and not a finger is lifted if the Master does not permit it to happen. I preserve it because I love it. I keep it because I love also the ones whom I made to dwell on it, to live and enjoy it. Despite all wicked things ever looming ahead, although having to pass through a severe fiery purification soon to take place – creation will still be. I create because I love! I love what I create. And I love those who love their Maker back even more!
“So My child, lover of My soul, delight yourself in Me and seek Me until you find Me.”
‘Um..seek me until you find me’? I questioned in myself, to which He responds,
“There is always something more to find in Me. Always new fronts to discover! Seek! And you will find what you seek! Seek with your whole heart, for then you will be satisfied to the full and beyond. Oh you wait for it!!” He was excited.
So seeking with the Holy Spirit.. I pondered.
And Jesus continued,
“Unlock your imagination and take Me to places, and I will introduce you to My touches as we go. Take My hand and let Me introduce you to how Creation was fashioned, how marvels in the sky were formed, how the womb is painted, how the sky is vast and open from one end to another, how it mirrors stunning light at the sun’s touch on the horizon. Take Me by that hand and fly with your soul to the realm of My mind and worlds. See, there is so much to discover, so much to find out that will blow you over in its entirety!” He laughs aloud with great delight. “This is yet nothing of what is seen on Earth! Wait until you get to Heaven! The laws of nature and gravity are not applied there, My law is Love, and with Love, nothing is impossible. As you know, I am possible in every way, even when it seems like there is no way out.
“Jump in your mind and soul, dive into your heart, and screen your desires with your imagination. That is not merely imagination. You imagine – an image is presented to you, and an image has a source given as to where it comes from. Take that and let Me shape this image in your mind that your soul will take a tour with Me into My realms. To every thought that is pure, honourable, praiseworthy, and true – hold fast to that. Start anew from the last spot of purity you had imagined, and continue, whenever something derogating intervenes into your mind-screen.
“Recall to mind the places you love – places you have seen that touched you greatly, and meet Me there. Find a spot where I can sit near you and enjoy that view anew, for that is being lived in My presence. From there, take a journey and tell Me what you would desire to see or experience, then you will see images and screens switching and taking shape into your mind-screen, your spiritual eyes witnessing to this screen.
“You see, you have two types of vision: physical vision – which is composed of your physical eyes, and spiritual vision – which is composed of your spiritual eyes; your soul, your spirit seeing the spirit world. This cannot be witnessed with physical eyes, for each witnesses the realm it originated from. The spirit, in this case, witnesses both realms and is not limited. But the physical can only witness the physical creation. Unless, by divine grace, certain situations make the physical eye witness openly the spiritual realm. Soon both visions will be united and completed in Me, where both physical and spiritual realms, take vision through Me. (He spoke this as a reference to the glorified bodies.)
“But as of now, Jesus continued, as the laws of nature and the universe are in order, take My hand and let Me introduce you to My mind and Creation, My wisdom and lasting knowledge, all fuelled by Love; My law in Heaven and on Earth. Nothing is ever impossible for Me, your God! Nothing.
“I can intervene into the realms I have made, at will. Take courage in Me and have confidence in God, who is above all seen and unseen realms and creatures. Take reign and climb with Me! Use the eyes of your spirit and allow Me to sharpen it even more, both now as it will be in Heaven soon.”
Then I chuckled. You always seem to say ‘soon’, Lord.
“Soon, to be approaching.” He said.
And that was the end of our conversation.
I remembered then that the Gospel in the Lord’s Supper was, “the greatest in Heaven is like the little child. No one can enter Heaven if they won’t humble themselves like this child.” And the first Reading was: “think of all that is honorable, praiseworthy, true, and hold fast to those thoughts”. (This is paraphrased from the scripture said by Paul.) So, enter Heaven; the realms of Heaven, with the eyes of a child, with simple-minded and strong faith.
