Sometimes I get after myself for becoming less aware of what’s going on around me. I wonder if I’m becoming more and more out of touch.

You’re looking at this from a purely human point of view. What I’m doing in you is more than that. It is a divine work. So instead of busying yourself so much with all that is earthly, you’re now tending more and more to me. And because of this, I’m looking after you and everything that concerns you. Isn’t this much better than constantly worrying and trying to control every aspect of your life?

I don’t give away my hand, preferring to work quietly behind the scenes where I can do the most good. What you observe and make judgments on is similar to viewing the surface of the sea—there is so much going on underneath! This is why I ask you to trust Me. If I need your help, I’ll let you know.

Jesus, I understand what Peter meant when he said that You should leave him because of his sinfulness. My selfishness is screaming at me. How can You love me?

I see all of you all of the time. This in no way lessens my love for you. On the contrary, your misery draws Me to you most powerfully. It is a great grace for you to see what you see. My love is more appreciated when you realize that you don’t deserve it. Be at peace my child.

Your heart was made for this kind of love. You’ll never find peace until you give up everything to find it. And I’ll never rest until I find you completely immersed in it.
Immerse me.

Do not worry. Nothing good is ever accomplished by wringing your hands and constantly reviewing the possibilities about things that are out of your control. Believe Me when I tell you that the power you think you have is illusory. This is merely a trap to keep you from Me, your true source of power and good. Discipline yourself to always turn your attention to Me regardless of the nightmarish visions that dance in your head.

Oh, what a struggle this is! The only solution I see is for me to have your mind.
