A few days prior to my hospitalization, B. proposed a book exchange and she gave me volume 3 of the trilogy “For the Happiness of My Own, My Chosen Ones. Jesus “.
Bedridden at the hospital, I discovered the calls of a God of Love. He invites me to enter in a state of surrender and humility, to recognize my frailties and my powerlessness. He invites me to hand it all over to Him through my successive consents in all circumstances, to open my heart to His Love, to become Love and to be able to give Love to others.
I experienced great peace and serenity through my health issues. I understood how all sufferings offered in communion to those of Christ are a source of grace for ourselves and those who suffer in our immediate environment. They contribute to the edification on Earth of the new civilization of Love evoked by John Paul II. I experience how God respects my freedom and my choices and how much He needs my “Yes” to be in position to act. If, like Mary, my “Yes” is complete, then I meet a God who speaks to me and who acts today! A God who does what He says, to whom I can give everything – my failures as well as my successes – and who, in the invisible dimension, reaches the hearts of many.
In the past, I was convinced that the generous actions on my part granted me a status as a committed and responsible Christian. I now experience how important it is to place God at the top of priorities, to live increasingly in a condition of deep intimacy with Him, to meet Him through reconciliation, through the Eucharist and through prayer. In that manner, I receive His Love which transforms me and I allow God to act through me for the happiness of those around me.
You seek a better and more fulfilling life? Then, take a leap of faith in trust! Go forward and greet He who knocks at your door to fulfill you with His love.
