7 – NURTURING OF GOD IN THE SOUL

Seventh Rule:  DAILY CONSCIOUS NURTURING OF GOD IN THE SOUL

Fancy letter My child, I would like you to be completely similar to Me. The more you will become like Me, the more you will please God, and the more you will fulfill the Will of God. I would like to dwell with you, so that by staring at Me you may become like Me. I will teach you and you, listen and ask. Through obedience and humility, you will receive the grace that will be necessary for the fulfilment of My will.

I told you yesterday about My place in your heart where God dwells, and I dwell everywhere together with Him. God dwells in you through His grace, and I dwell in God through a union of love. You do not have to understand this well. You must rather believe that God lives in you and your heart is His home. Nazareth was given to all the baptised souls and they truly have the One who saved them. The grace of baptism is, however, overshadowed by sin. Thus, to take full advantage of its fruits, one should support its soul through other sacraments. Little Jesus grows in the soul who loves Him, who cares for Him, and above all who is aware of His presence in its own heart.  

To worship God means to believe in Him, believe Him and give Him glory through love. The heart of man is the house of God. Jesus inhabits it regardless of whether it is beautiful, full of virtue and well prepared for Him, or whether it is quite shabby and poor. After all, God was born in the humblest stable, because it alone did not refuse Him a place on Earth. In the same way, your hearts, if only they desire God and call upon Him, are His dwelling in which He gladly resides.

Our work will consist of becoming aware of the presence of Jesus in your hearts and taking care of Him as of a gift from God. Through every task and thought offered to God, Jesus receives our love and grows in the heart of the one who loves Him. We will strive to ensure that He grows so much that He will overtake completely the home in which He resides, and thus He will transform the one in whom He grows into Himslef. To this end, I will teach you to slowly but continuously forget about yourselves and become aware of God’s presence in your souls. I bless you, My daughter, in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
