Hello, Brothers, Sisters, and Heartdwellers family.
So, this morning, that young lady I spoke about, whom I prayed with concerning her marriage, received retaliation from our prayers.
She got hit with a trial and called me wanting to quit it all. We both left the phone call the day before filled with courage and strength. I also got hit that morning. Lord, help us! — as feelings of frustration were welling up in me as well. I had to talk her off the cliff, but at the same time, practice what I preached to her as I encouraged her, “Remember, the 40-day challenge — we are in this together we can’t give up or retreat.”
I realized it came down to wanting to feel understood, and also wanting communication. We both wanted the same things, but I remembered what Jesus said — it’s pride that will be my downfall in always wanting to be understood. Sure enough, I pulled the Rhema,
“True humility has no rights…Pride makes its rights known — expects and demands them”
Ouch, Lord, so true.
After receiving the Lord, I began to stare at the Blessed Mother’s image, asking for her help inside my heart. Recently, the biggest rift between Derrick and [me] has been my love, for Blessed Mother and the Scripture facts I gave him. He just isn’t having it and now is even fearful of our future. Please pray for him guys and us, it hasn’t been easy.
So, I came before the Lord
Good morning, Jesus, what’s on your heart?
However, I felt Blessed Mother begin to speak to me, so I began writing.
Our Mother of Mercy began,
“My beloved daughter, do not be moved or shaken — endure a bit longer. Your prayers are making strides — even with that precious soul. She is so dear to God. Please let her know that her prayers have been heard, and we have seen her endure through the most difficult of situations and the most painful of memories.
“She is not alone in this, nor has she ever been. The Lord is doing an amazing work in her family and if she abandons the ship now, she will not see it and would rather, later on, regret it. The goodness of God is coming to reveal itself to her and her family. Encourage her to keep fighting in prayer and all will go well.”
And here I began to be bombarded with all sorts of thoughts that were distracting me and [I] felt like giving up on hearing Blessed Mothers’ voice.
“Keep writing My beloved daughter, keep writing. Do not give in to fear and doubt. You will, one day soon, go back and read this message to find peace and will grow in confidence in all I have said.
“I want you to speak to you, beloved daughter, and to all the brides, about true humility.
“True humility is when a soul embraces all that they are and comes to the truth of who they are — and who they are not. Humility is simply the truth about something and the truth is, My brides, you are nothing without the Lord.
“Why do so many find it difficult to embrace their nothingness, to die to self, and really accept their misery? Why? Because of pride. Far too many souls have expectations, demands, rights, and limitations [that] they put up where not even the Lord, can go beyond. He understands your pain, He understands your wounds and scars, but He is still calling many of you higher. It is in humility, where the greatest of graces are received and retained. That is why He so desires humility, humility, humility. The Lord desires to shower, so many graces upon so many souls — but so much is lost because of pride.
It’s lost easily when Brotherly love is breached. When one seeks to make their opinion, desires, and will, superior to another, and indirectly superior to that of Christ. If souls would only abandon themselves and recognize every activity, however small in their lives, orchestrated by the Lord, then they wouldn’t react so much in the flesh, but humbly submit themselves, to the Lord’s moulding, and chisel — not defending themselves, not correcting another, not taking offense, and not stewing in resentment or bitterness of what has been done.
But Mother, it’s so hard,
“Yes, it is Beloved, but that is where grace comes in My sweet daughter. Contemplate your Beloved Lord often in all that you do and it will become easier. When God is with you every day, and you have your heart and mind set on Him rather than your environment, it changes everything. When the devil comes with his antics you do not readily react, but rather respond with love. You are getting there, Beloved”
Mother, I feel like, I am failing miserably,
“I would rather say that you are getting up more courageously,” She said, smiling.
At last thing, You’re much too kind Mother — you are so humble.
Our Mother of Mercy continued,
“Well, that is the truth, My child. Humble yourselves, My brides. Ask Me for the grace to continue to walk in ‘the little way’ in all things. Do not insist, demand, or expect your way in anything. Even if things aren’t being done to your liking and you know you can do them better, let it be. Even if you have asked something of someone, 100 times and they still do not do it — be patient.
“Even if someone oversteps their boundaries, and treats you with such malice, frustrates you, says something offensive, uses you and takes advantage of you, —rather than responding with an attitude that stays away from the person, holds grudges, and puts a wall up in your heart — forgive and Love them even more.
“Be prudent in all your dealings, My brides. When it comes to souls, be discerning — do not entrust your heart to anyone because that sets one up for disappointment continuously. But even then, that shouldn’t stop you from loving them.
“Too many times it’s because of expectations placed on another. That is self-love which is a result of pride. Love selflessly, My beloved ones. Ask for this grace and even ask for the grace to keep it. And when you fall in the area of humility, do not beat yourself up, but rather dust yourself off and try again — even if it’s within that same day. For the Lord lays so many opportunities throughout the day for you to think of others [rather] than yourself. Now that is humility.
“That is all for now, My sweet little one. Courage and grace have been given to you, and all the brides, to walk in greater humility, and embrace the truth of your misery, which makes you walk more in lowliness than in haughtiness”
That was the end of Blessed Mother’s message.
