Are you afraid? It is because you are looking away from me…

Zephaniah 3:16-17 Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands grow weak. The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory.

“Beloved, what do you know to be true? I have told you what is true: I AM! I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Therefore, follow me alone—I AM the Way. Believe in me, believe in my love—I AM the Truth. Live in me and put to death all that is not of me—I AM the Life. Are you afraid? It is because you are looking away from me. “The Lord, your God, is in ‘your midst…’ What then have you to fear? Cling to eternity, and time will have no power over you. Cling to me, and fear will have no hold on you. You will be given a warrior’s strength and you will be victorious!”

O my Jesus, how weak I am! How often I look away! Mama Mary, help me to stay focused on Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life. Help me to be unafraid by helping me to cling to Jesus. Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything! Thank you, Jesus. Praise you, Jesus!

  1. This is a strong and well-timed message. Fear not and put your faith in the Lord Jesus.

    August 12th, 31st day of Preparation for Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary: “. . . I come as one sick to the Physician, as one thirsty to the Fountain of Life, as one in need to the King of Heaven; I come as a servant to my Master, as a creature to my Creator, as a dejected soul to my loving Comforter”.

    God bless all of you!

  2. Thank you for this Peli, for just as always, the perfect message just as needed!
    I love this prayer, literally live it just about every moment of my life at the moment, ( well several years in fact! )
    Do you remember when Jesus asked us to climb Calvary with Him Janet? He said it would be personal to each of us.
    I get worried sometimes wondering how much further there is to ‘climb.’ It does give me great comfort to know I have fellow ‘climbers’ climbing with me though, and being led by a very reliable little donkey 👍😉
    I do need to say “Jesus I trust in You” many times a day.
    As you have so often said, “Say it until you believe it!”
    Maranatha dear Lord Jesus and hurry please! Thank you, Amen!

  3. Anyone have thoughts on the words above – ” Cling to eternity and time will have no power over you”? My spiritual director – a Carmelite priest- in discussing contemplation said to me “the only real thing we own that we can offer to God is our space and time”.

    1. Good discussion starter Bob! For me it means that we should not place more value on time than over eternity but should look at time through the lens of eternity, which gives us a whole different perspective. Then we can do as the Carmelite priest said and give him every moment, so as not to cling to what the earth has to offer, but make each moment a gift to God.

  5. I also have been knowing and waiting since the 50’s. So nice to realize there have been others on this journey with the same understanding from so long ago. I have always been devoted to Our Lady of Fatima🙏 Since I was a little girl.
    My recent dreams:
    The first included two different mounotops that were heavily covered with snow. I was running to the edge and would have fallen over the cliff unknowingly, but was stopped by a being –angel?
    Then last night instead of waters right to the top of scenes, such as hotels, that I have seen before, the ocean waters were incredibly receded. It looked so awesome and then I realized it meant a tsunami was approaching… thoughts???
