"I am pleased with you, My child. Allow yourself to become fully aware of My pleasure shining upon you...The Light of My Love shines on you continually, regardless of your feelings or behavior... be receptive to this unconditional Love (through) thankfulness and trust... Thank Me for everything; trust in Me at all times." (339)
This may be one of the most impacting Truths in my own life... becoming "fully aware of (His) pleasure," of His "unconditional Love." It has everything to do with intentionally moving my focus towards being "receptive... thankful and trusting." This is the critical pivot point of my journey... at all times! It helps me readjust, when tempted to complain or to doubt God. I must pivot. Pivot my thought life... radically, decisively, intentionally heading in the opposite direction... straight into the heart of Jesus! It's a welcomed kind of challenge, because my soul deeply longs to be "open to (His) loving Presence."
