Messenger: Jesus I trust in you!

We have all experienced tremendous problems in our lives and in the suffering we have been led closer to Him.

The times when the greatest problems have been resolved are when I have focused totally on His might.

Many times we have tried and tried and after months and months of suffering, there comes that day when we truly realize the enormousness of the problem and soon it will reach a peak and something will break, but at this point this problem has become totally out of our control and only God in His might could handle it.

Today I heard Jesus clearly speak to me and He said, "I understand every feeling in your heart. I understand all your trials and sufferings, I understand and many times you speak needlessly to others in trying to resolve issues in which only I can control. In My might I will handle this problem, but you must surrender and pray for the grace."

After months of anguish, we all know the problems in our lives that seem insurmountable.

Jesus told me, how He carried the cross until the end, knowing all sin and suffering of souls for all eternity, but He was not like a bomb ready to explode because of the load He carried. He was calm and loving. He was literally covered with wounds, bleeding, knowing the sins of all men and all suffering and hanging there on the cross. His thoughts were thoughts of love for us. In His love He gave Himself to His death, and in those dying moments He gave His Mother as our Mother.

Jesus speaks: And so I speak to you today My beloved chosen ones, I show You My Heart, pierced with a lance. I gave My all and I give Myself completely to you this day in the Eucharist. It is love that I come to teach you. I have promised My messenger that I will handle these problems, none of which are insurmountable or beyond My might. I will be your refuge even in those last dying moments of your life.

I call you to prayer. I ask you to pray the Infant of Prague hourly Novena. I ask you to practice love and control and soon with God's grace you will trust more and more in My might as you surrender and give yourself to Me. I am not telling you to give your life to Me in a way that you do not act when you need to. I am telling you to trust and be open to the working of the Spirit within you to direct you to act appropriately in love when necessary. My child the road is rocky as the road I trod to Calvary, but My might will be with you, with the Holy Spirit you will proceed fearlessly ahead to the end, you will speak as I speak through you and act in My name, but all you do must be done for the greater glory and honor of God and done in love. I will be your rear guard, I will protect you and I will be there to comfort and love you and understand the desires and feelings of your heart. I am the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I am the tenderest of all hearts, I am the Bridegroom of your soul. Today is First Friday, I desire you to venerate My most Sacred Heart.

I love you,
