XVIII - Seeking God in Order to Become an Instrument of His
A soul that aspired to deepen their union with God, and mature this union through a true surrender and a pure contact with the Heart of the Celestial Father, prayed to Him, saying: "Lord, my life and all life belong to You; my heart and each heart belong to You and are living parts of Your Heart of Love. Teach me, then, to feel myself ever more a part of Your Being, of Your Spirit, of Your Source. Teach me to live and move always within You, expressing You and being Your instrument in this world and beyond."
And after an instant in silence, contemplating the inner world of this soul, the Lord responded: "To express Me, more than yourself, little soul, you must first do as My Son taught you: enter into your room in silence and pray in secret to My Heart, which hears you in secret. It is there where you strengthen your union with Me. Before demonstrating it to the world, before being an instrument of Mine in the eyes of humankind, first you must not only build, but also consolidate and renew this union with My Heart for the centuries to come.
It is in secret that I reveal to you what I most want from you; it is in secret that I show you My Kingdom within you; it is in secret that I hear your confession and forgive your sins, wash your feet, your face and your hands, and I make you new, every day, so that you may always have a new opportunity to try to come closer to My Spirit, to My Source.
Complete your prayer with a silent and simple, striving and attentive service; always seeking humility. At first, beloved soul of My Heart, do not even try to be an example, because the one who is trying to be an example is looking for the attention of someone to observe them and learn with them. Do not want to teach but to only live; do not want to show but to only be. Know that you are an apprentice and that you are trying each day to be better, and if for My Glory someone watches and learns from you, let your heart not change but remain an eternal apprentice of My Spirit, an eternal servant within My Plan, an eternal seeker of My Ppresence. Thus, you will learn through true contact with Me, and I will be within you, and you will represent Me, perhaps, without even realizing it."
May this dialogue, children, teach you to seek God, to deepen into your contact with Him and to be His instruments in this world, and much beyond it.
You have My blessing for this.
