Delight of the Heart

Ever want to squeal with absolute delight, place all of your trust in the heavenly family. Father, Mother, Son and Holy Spirit while in front of the Blessed Sacrament. Placing trust in God, in Mary who he chose to be the vessel to bear his Son, in His Son who died to save us and the Holy Spirit who is part of the Father and the Son. But nothing more beautiful is the small voice that speaks loudly. What a beautiful way for our Lord to bless a prayer. This is what I heard: 28“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 and what a gift. In a most delightful way I was given more than what was asked for.

Inside it is possible to be dancing while being absolutely still on the outside where joy is overflowing on the inside. If that doesn't make sense, I don't know how else to put it. And when I think about how our Blessed Mother must have felt when she was chosen and Gabriel spoke to her. The joy in her heart that day, that time in her young life when her whole world would change. She said yes in a most profound way, that none of us could ever understand. I do though and also how truly possible God makes things happen. If anyone ever wanted to understand what it is God wants, all we have to do is ask ourselves what it is we truly want the most in our own lives. If the answer is love as the first response then you have found the answer and all that has to be done is to seek God first and love Him first and love of neighbor and self follows in a most wonderful way. Aww but first we must remove the burdens that weigh us down. Come to me he says and give to him your burdens that block the heart from loving Him completely. And there will never be any regrets for going to Him. Because he sets us free.

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

When I first came down with M.E this Scripture bought me such peace.

I have not been well these past few days. So it was lovely to come to this beautiful blog and see my favourite Scripture there.

It was also on Esthers blog...confirmation indeed that God is with you always.

Many thanks MC:)

Peace to you:)
