Mercy and the peace-filled heart

Giving God the first minutes of your day will pay dividends later.
I promise you, He will multiply your time.
You’ll get more done and have a peaceful heart while doing it.

Lisa Brenninkmeyer
from her book Be Still: A Daily Devotional


(thistle / Julie Cook / 2021)

“Tell souls not to place within their own hearts obstacles to My mercy,
which so greatly wants to act within them.
My mercy works in all those hearts which open their doors to it.
Both the sinner and the righteous person have need of My mercy.
Conversion, as well as perseverance, is a grace of My mercy.
Let souls who are striving for perfection particularly adore My mercy,
because the abundance of graces which I grant them flows from My mercy.
I desire that these souls distinguish themselves by boundless trust
in My mercy. I myself will attend to the sanctification of such souls.
I will provide them with everything they will need to attain sanctity.
The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only,
and that is-trust. The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.
Souls that trust boundlessly are a great comfort to Me,
because I pour all the treasures of My graces into them.
I rejoice that they ask for much,
because it is My desire to give much, very much.
On the other hand, I am sad when souls ask for little,
when they narrow their hearts.”

        Is it fair to say I was lured away?
        By endless distractions and lovelier attractions then
        Or fairer still, my own free will
        Is the better one to blame for this familiar mess
        I’ve made again
        So I would understand if You were out of patience
        And I would understand if I was out of chances
        And Your mercies are new every morning
        So let me wake with the dawn
        When the music is through or so it seems to be
        Then let me sing a new song, old things gone
        Every day it’s true, You make all Your mercies new
        The distance left between East and West
        Is how far You would go to forget the debt I’d owe
        And thrown into the sea, the wicked ways in me
        Will never have a chance to wash back on the sand
        So I would understand if You would make me pay
        And I would understand lying in the bed I made again
        Your mercies are new every morning
        So let me wake with the dawn
        When the music is through or so it seems to be
        Let me sing a new song, old things gone
        Every day it’s true, You make all Your mercies new
        Up comes the sun on every one of us
        Gone, gone, gone the guilt and shame that knew Your name
        Your mercies are new every morning
        So let me wake with the dawn
        When the music is through or so it seems to be
        Let me sing a new song, old things gone
        Every day it’s true, You make all Your mercies new

    I have been taught many lessons this Easter Season on this topic of Trust. Grateful to have Him at my side through it all. 💕 Hugs Julie for including my gal-pal St. Faustina into the mix!
