Learning to surrender the heart
Humanity, children, is still learning to surrender to the heart to God. Some surrender because they have no other path or other choices; others surrender because of all that they have already suffered; and few surrender for love because they were not defeated by their inertia nor by the suffering in life, but rather by the Love of God. This surrender is what the Lord asks for us to experience.
When Christ says: "Surrender to me", He is not talking about following his path because there is no other choice, because of fear or through insecurity; He is not talking about choosing His path because you have suffered enough that you do not want to look for anything else but peace. Christ is talking about understanding the real meaning of life; about knowing that you are on Earth for a higher purpose, which is the renewal of the Love of God.
It is knowing and having faith in this Love, which ousts all human authority from your life, that you will begin to truly and spiritually surrender to Christ.
Surrender is an inner decision that is born of the discovery of the Love of God and of the eagerness to live in that Love and for that love forever.
When a being is surrendered to the Love of God, they understand all things to be vehicles to reach him: the difficulties, the tests, the humiliations, the overcoming of resistance, the constant deepening of the surrender, everything becomes a vehicle to renew the Love of the Father because all of that partakes in His Plan and comes into the lives of His children and servers, to guide them to the greater purpose, the Divine Will.
Therefore children, in these times, surrender to God wholeheartedly and without fear, trusting in His Grace and in His immeasurable Love. Allow the Father to show you this Love before which everything becomes small, everything loses its value and its meaning. And surrender to it. You will thus discover that there is nothing more wonderful within the evolution of beings than that of being flooded and filled by God because you were created for that, you were created to love.
Your Father and Friend,
The Most Chaste Saint Joseph
