April 2017: Make of your families sanctuaries of Holy Love

There are nefarious collusions in the world today - groups of people and nations which are united outside of God's Laws and focused on power which opposes democracy

St. Catherine of Siena says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"So, it is, I have come to help all understand that the openness of one's heart to the Truth is dependent upon free will. If you are not interested in finding the Truth and cooperating with the grace of Truth, your heart will remain closed."

"You can see this with those who come to the property* or are introduced to the Messages.** Some are eager to disbelieve and try to manufacture negatives. Others are eager to believe and to live the Messages, bringing them alive in their hearts. They see what is good and do not try to find a negative. Discernment is only genuine if the heart is open to the Truth and does not hold preconceived opinions or agendas for finding fault. There is a fine line between rash judging and discernment."

"An open heart prays with sincerity to discover the Truth."

St. Catherine of Siena says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"The first step in having an open heart to grace is to believe that Heaven can do anything by way of grace. Take as an example this Mission* - this property.** It is grace that transformed a soybean field into a miraculous apparition site. In order to open your heart to the grace offered here, the soul must decide the Mission is worthy of belief. Then he must look at the impact the Mission has made in the world. Have there been healings and conversions? Is the Mission offering a sound spirituality? It would be difficult - at best - to discount all of these positives for the sake of disbelief."

"An open heart is a heart that searches for the Truth. Such a soul does not smugly believe he has all the answers and does not need any special grace. An open heart recognizes the positive influence of grace and is eager to respond to it."

Read 1 Corinthians 2:12-13+

Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual Truths to those who possess the Spirit.

Synopsis: The Holy Spirit teaches the Truth of God's Wisdom which cannot be interpreted by human wisdom.

"People come to this property* for various reasons - in need of a miracle, to experience the graces offered here, some even come to prove their disbelief. The most important attribute of any pilgrim, however, is to come with an open heart. To free yourself of the burden of preconceived opinions, is a grace in itself. This freedom allows Heaven to work its wonders, as it will. Do not come looking for negatives. Look for Heaven's Hand in forming this Ministry,** despite any fair-minded investigation."

"Be at peace knowing it is the grace of My Immaculate Heart that draws you here and invites you to experience My presence on this property. The influence of others' opinions should not be part of your open-minded experience here."

"Amidst all the opposition, calumnies and misinformation, this Mission*** stands as testimony to its authenticity. Place this in your open heart."

"These days, people allow politics to divide instead of unite. This is the pride of not being able to surrender their own opinions to coincide with the political leaders. Isn't it the same with man's relationship with God? Arrogance forms its own opinions which often do not support obedience to the Commandments."

"Mankind does not live with the concept of accountability before God. He makes up his own rules irregardless of God's Laws. Anything that vaguely resembles Heaven's displeasure for human choices - be it natural disasters or disease - is met with anger and disdain towards God."

"You cannot live as though God does not exist in one moment and in the next, blame God for every negative occurrence. Live to please Me and My Father. Then I will give you the grace to endure every hardship and to tolerate every cross. Then you will find it easier to be united in the Truth."

"The fury of My Wrath and the magnitude of My Justice cannot be realized now, as man does not recognize his departure from God's Will and the depth of pain he causes his Creator."

"For this reason, I continue to send My Mother into the world to effect man's conversion to the Truth. This is an age which denies the Truth by embracing human will without consideration for God's Will. I do not send My Mother without purpose. She does not come to you for speculation, but to help you believe."

"Embrace Holy Love without regard for consequences from unbelievers. Make of your own hearts a sanctuary wherein Holy Love abides in peace."

Read 1 Thessalonians 2:13+

And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the Word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the Word of God, which is at work in you believers.

Read Romans 2:6-8+

For He will render to every man according to his works: to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, He will give eternal life; but for those who are factious and do not obey the Truth, but obey wickedness, there will be wrath and fury.

Synopsis: God's Judgment on those who do not submit to the Truth of God's Laws (Commandments) will be wrath and indignation.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Dear children, try very hard in these difficult times to make your surrender to God's Divine Will complete through your surrender to Holy Love. The deeper your response to Holy Love - the deeper your surrender to the Father's Divine Will. These two are one. It is a challenge after one of these events is over to continue on your return to your points of origin to deepen your commitment to Holy Love. Jesus and I are always with you to help you and strengthen your efforts."

"Today, I waste no time in telling you that Jesus and I will once again be with you in the Field of the United Hearts* on Our Feast Day celebrating Our United Hearts (June 25, 2017). We look forward to greeting those present at the 3:00 P.M. Rosary Service."

"Have confidence in My Mercy and do not doubt. It is your doubts which serve as an obstacle between your will and the Will of My Father. You cannot be in union with the Divine Will when you doubt His action in your heart."

April 23, 2017 - Divine Mercy Sunday - 3:00 P.M. Service

(This Message was given in multiple parts over several days.)

Jesus is here* as He is in the Divine Mercy Image. He says: "I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"Thank you for celebrating with Me the Feast of My Divine Mercy. It is right and just to honor My Mercy which snatches you out of the grip of Satan. It is My Father's Will that My Mercy be acknowledged and esteemed in a world so bent on separation from its Creator."

My Father's Will is all around you and part of every present moment. Nothing can exist or occur outside of My Father's Divine Will. His Will is All-Grace, All-Mercy, All-Love. During these times of confusion that weigh upon the heart of the world, I wish to establish devotion to My Father's Will. Just as you have a Feast Day honoring My Divine Mercy, establish a Feast of My Father's Divine Will. Celebrate it on the first Sunday in August every year, a day of celebration of God the Father.** I do not expect the established Church to acknowledge this any more than they did the Feast of the Protectress of the Faith (January 21st) or the Feast of Refuge of Holy Love (May 5th). However, I request those who will listen to honor it."

"This Mission*** has as its foundation My Father's Will. The Journey through the Chambers of Our United Hearts is a journey which leads ultimately to immersion in the Divine Will. Holy Love is the Divine Will. So you see, My request is pertinent to this Mission."

"My Father's Will is omnipotent and perfect. Therefore, He watches closely man's free-will choices, but He will never take away mankind's free will. It is free will that chooses evil over good and does not see these poor choices as the cause of evil in the world. Satan has successfully obscured the difference between good and evil, the result being the confusion in the world today. When free will is used to serve self and not others, the door to every sort of debauchery is opened. Because My Father permits evil choices through free will, does not mean He approves of them. My Father's Will permits man his choices but also brings down His Justice. If you respect My Father's Divine Will, then you must also respect His Divine Justice. Do not live as though you are not answerable for your choices."

"The hope of the world is in every prayer offered for the conversion of the heart of the world."

"Holy Love has always been a part of My Father's Divine Will. Now it is a part of My Divine Mercy in these latter days, drawing people into deeper personal holiness and union with My Father's Will. The one who turns to My Mercy also turns to My Father's Will and, so too, Holy Love. It is My Divine Mercy that acts like a fisherman's net drawing all people together in Holy Love and My Father's Will. Without My Mercy you would not be attracted to Holy Love."

"I come today and during these times to bring people into the Will of My Father through Holy Love. This is a work of My Mercy. This is My Call to you. In your acceptance of this Call is your surrender. Everything in the present moment is My Father's Will for you. When you accept what the present moment offers, you accept His Divine Will - you surrender to His Divine Will."

"Today, as you look around you and see all the changes this spring season has made, note too that My Divine Mercy has transformed souls. Through My Mercy souls are made pure and attractive in My Father's sight. Never be discouraged in guilt but encouraged in My Mercy."

"My brothers and sisters, today I invite each one of you into My Merciful Heart. Count on My Graces, be strengthened in My Mercy. I am calling you to understand that these are special times and special graces are being given."

"I'm taking all of your petitions into My Merciful Heart today and I'm imparting to you My Blessing of Divine Love."

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"What distresses Me the most is the general apathy that embraces the heart of the world in regards to whether they are pleasing Me or not. This is manifested in the indifference between good and evil."

"Some seek My Mercy, but if they are made to wait for their prayers to be answered they become distressed. Others never turn to Me, but rely only on themselves and others."

"In the end it is My Mercy that will transform the world. Turn to Me while there is still time."

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"I have come to point out to you the paradoxical nature of your laws concerning the preservation of life. You have laws protecting certain forms of wildlife - even the eggs of certain bird species. Yet, life in the human womb is unprotected - even vulnerable to the dangers of legalized abortion. Which is more valuable - a human life or the life of a bird or animal? Where is the logic of your priorities? This is distorted thinking - a spirit of untruth - carried to the extreme."

"Pray that hearts are convicted in the Truth."

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"What is important is that mankind seeks reconciliation with God in order to receive His Mercy. Man cannot continue to play God and expect God not to notice. You will not have peace and unity in the world until all people and all nations place God back in His Sovereignty by embracing His Commandments through Holy Love."

"Therefore, you must understand, it is by your efforts in obedience to Holy Love - the embrace of God's Commandments - that you will succeed in bringing peace into the world. It is by God's Mercy I tell you this today. Please listen."

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"I desire that all people and all nations seek unity in Holy Love. This is the season of forgiveness. Allow your hearts to heal through the balm of Holy Love. Do not seek always your own advantage, but more often the welfare of others."

"This concern for the welfare of others should open the door to Christians from other countries who are being persecuted because of their beliefs. Open the door of the heart of this nation just as My Mother opens the door of Her Heart - a hospice of Holy Love. Offer the shelter of this great nation to those who suffer the arrows of persecution. I do not ask that you shelter criminals or those who threaten you, but those in danger for the sake of their Christianity."

April 16, 2017 - Easter Sunday - Solemnity of the Resurrection of the Lord

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"Today, I impart to you peace, love and joy. Those who believe in My Resurrection will inherit these things. The unbelievers have become the culprits of lack of peace, love and joy. The unbelievers labor against My Victory in hearts."

"Surrender to Me as though you are standing in front of the empty tomb. I am beside you. At first you do not recognize Me, but when you do, your heart is flooded with joy. This is the depth of joy I wish to give everyone today."

"Alleluia."

April 15, 2017 - Holy Saturday

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"As this season of forgiveness descends upon earth, I invite you to see that all unforgiveness is based upon pride. The soul cannot accept that such and such happened to him or was said to him. This is a pride that eats away at the very heart of holiness which is Holy Love. It separates the soul from Me."

"As I accepted every blasphemy and indignity, I invite the soul filled with unforgiveness to pray for the grace of forgiveness and to open his heart to it. I pray that souls will recognize their unforgiveness and desire to overcome it."

April 15, 2017 - Holy Saturday

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"Easter is a season of forgiveness. I forgave My enemies even as they tortured Me. I held in My Heart only Love - no grudges. Each soul must do the same. Most importantly forgive yourself of all past errors and sins freeing yourself of guilt. This proves to Me your faith in My Mercy."

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"This is a beautiful and profound Message Jesus gave you. People must imitate Jesus' Mercy or they will not receive His Mercy."

April 14, 2017

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"I invite you to understand, as you contemplate My Passion, that everyone's life has a certain via dolorosa* aspect to it. If the soul accepts his cross, then we are friends in this life and the next. Not to surrender to the cross places distance between us. So many trials and sufferings go wasted by lack of surrender. So many graces are consequently left unattended."

"My Crucifixion was necessary to open the Gates of Heaven to all mankind. As I suffered, I mourned for those who would not see Heaven despite My Sacrifice. No one will ever suffer the pain that I did on the Cross. Yet, I would not hesitate to suffer all of it over again for souls."

"I entreat you to love the salvation of souls above all."

* The term, "via dolorosa", as defined in the "Merriam-Webster Dictionary" is "a painfully difficult route, passage, or series of experiences".

April 13, 2017 - Holy Thursday

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"Tonight, step back in time with Me to the Garden at Gethsemane. As My Apostles slept, I prayed. I prayed that the Father would relieve Me of the terrible Passion and Death that lie in store for Me. He did not answer. I had to accept My Father's Will. I loved His Will even more than My Own Life. Once I surrendered to My Father's Will, I did not turn back. All was decided. The redemption of mankind was at stake."

"The pain in My Heart was so great when Judas led My persecutors into the Garden. Then he betrayed Me with a kiss. My Love for Judas never faltered. Divine Love does not fail when it is tested. One Apostle raised his sword and cut off a soldier's ear in a misguided attempt to save Me. I healed the ear, but still the soldiers did not recognize who it was they opposed. They were not supposed to recognize Me."

"My Agony in the Garden was emotional torture. In many ways, it was more severe than the Crucifixion itself. The lack of understanding on the part of the Apostles, the thought of what My Mother would suffer and the lack of love in the hearts of My persecutors was almost more than I could bear."

"I am here with you (Maureen) tonight to share these things with you. I know each of you and I know that you love Me. I suffered for you. I Love you."

April 13, 2017

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"My Call to be united in peace falls upon deaf ears unless Christians are one in the Spirit. This, however, is impossible outside of Holy Love. If you do not love God above all else and your neighbor as yourself you cannot embrace unity. This is why Holy Love is the impetus behind a sanctuary for Christians in this nation."

"As My Son seated Himself at the Last Supper, He knew full well that His Apostles were going to scatter in fear. He also knew that they would be drawn back together under the Wings of the Holy Spirit. This is what I pray for today. Without unity there is no peace. Without peace there is no unity. Be one in the Spirit."

Read Ephesians 2:19-22+

So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord; in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Read Philippians 2:1-2+

So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any incentive of love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Dear children, you will never be united in peace as Christians so long as you look upon your differences with disdain. Find the common ground of Holy Love and have this virtue in common. Look for the ways you are alike and you will be able to overcome your differences. If you cannot unite in peace, you will not be able to establish a nation which is a sanctuary for all Christians."

"It is necessary that you understand the dangers that lie in wait in so many hearts for Christianity in general. Pagan nations are now openly acting out in violence against Christians. This will not stop at geographic borders. Heathen hearts are everywhere. If evil can unite against good, it behooves good to unite against evil. You will only be defeated when you give up the good fight."

"Therefore, I come as your Refuge and strength. Be encouraged and encourage others to choose peace through Holy Love."

Read 2 Timothy 2:21-22+

If any one purifies himself from what is ignoble, then he will be a vessel for noble use, consecrated and useful to the master of the house, ready for any good work. So shun youthful passions and aim at righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call upon the Lord from a pure heart.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Today, I have come to ask your perseverance in prayer as plots and agendas are in hearts around the world which oppose peace and unity. More and more you will see Christians singled out as targets. This is why I continue to call for this nation to be established as a sanctuary for Christians who are unsafe in their country of origin."

"Christians do not harbor terrorism in their hearts. Neither do they embrace ideals of terrorism or violence against anyone. Christians carry the Gospel in their hearts which embraces peace. This is the hour when unity in peace must win out. The alternative is confusion, chaos and war. If you are not choosing unity in peace, you are embracing an evil agenda."

"The hour of this decision will not return to you. Once you have chosen - you have chosen. Join Me in this victory against evil. Be united in the Truth and in Holy Love."

Read Colossians 3:12-15+

Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassion, kindness, lowliness, meekness, and patience, forbearing one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.

Synopsis: Life in Christ consists in living in the peace that is Holy Love, which binds all other virtues together.

St. Francis de Sales says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Those who do not listen and heed these Messages* do not have regard for their own judgment before God. They are complacent in many sinful attitudes and do not see God's Judgment as imminent. The many warnings Heaven sends to earth through this messenger** and others go unheeded, as most do not see any consequences for their errant behavior."

"But, I tell you, God who sees all and judges all through the measure of Holy Love in hearts, grows weary in awaiting man's awakening as to the difference between good and evil. The reason this is such an obscure concept is mankind does not love God enough. Therefore, he is more intent on pleasing himself than in pleasing God by choosing good."

"This was the attitude of the general populace in Noah's day and why God sent the deluge. It was the way people lived in Sodom and Gomorrah. It is evil complacency. Pray for an awakening of hearts."

Read 2 Timothy 3:1-5+

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of stress. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, inhuman, implacable, slanderers, profligates, fierce, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.

Synopsis: These are the tribulations of the last days the heart of the world has entered as men have become lovers of self, worshipping the gods of money, power and the status of pride, arrogance, abuse, disobedience, profanity, ingratitude, slander, licentiousness, violence, and hating good. They have become treacherous, pompous, lovers of pleasures (of the flesh) rather than of God as they make a pretense of being religious, but abuse it's power and authority. As the Remnant Faithful, do not listen to them, but stay clear of their influence.

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"A great deal of My Passion was not only the physical pain but the knowledge of the fear and emotional pain that I knew My apostles and disciples would experience as they witnessed my suffering. I tried to support their faith through many miracles and even the Transfiguration. However, for some their fears won out and they were unable to persevere. Even Peter, the rock I built My Church on, crumbled."

"Do not be surprised then, when out of confusion and fear the Church today is challenged. It is important for Christians to be united in these times of hedonistic values. Be united in Our United Hearts, where through Holy Love you will find peace, and security and the Truth."

Follow the pattern of the sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus; guard the Truth that has been entrusted to you by the Holy Spirit who dwells within us.

Yet, so many do not accept the miraculous - much to their disadvantage."

Our Lady comes as Queen of Heaven and Earth. She says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"I come to you as Queen of Heaven and Earth to describe to you the challenges in the world today. Every challenge is the result of man's resistance to change - changing his opinion or point of view. Some see terrorism as part of their religion. Others have no regard for life from conception to natural death. Still others live only for worldly gain - money, power, popularity. These errors, which pervade many hearts, affect Church and world politics. You have many leaders in the world today who will not change their goals even if their opinions take innocent lives."

"For this reason, I come to you today seeking your prayers and sacrifices, that hearts open to change. This is the way to conversion of heart - a path so many oppose. Pray that change becomes attractive to those set in their ways. Pray that negative attitudes towards change become positive. I am praying with you. Prayer is the solution to every situation."

Read 1 Peter 1:22-23+

Having purified your souls by your obedience to the Truth for a sincere love of the brethren, love one another earnestly from the heart. You have been born anew, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding Word of God.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Today dear children, once again I invite you to hope and to trust in the grace God sends you. Trust dispels concerns for the future and helps you to find your way out of confusion. The Refuge of My Heart is a hospice of trust as I protect you from unnecessary concerns. The way out of worry is the wisdom to determine what is a legitimate concern and what is manufactured by Satan to cause you disquiet. Trust grace to come to the rescue in your every need."

"This trust depends on your surrender - your acceptance - of your reliance on God's Grace. Often grace is disguised as a cross. Many times, grace comes at the last minute, as God tests your trust in Him. Always hold hope in your heart as an anchor of trust."

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"I can only tell you (Maureen) what I told you last night. People must understand that private revelation does not have to be approved by theologians to be genuine. Human error is too often part of discernment. The fact is, judgment often takes the place of discernment. Minds are set on disapproving rather than discovering the Truth."

"When you see a bird soaring overhead you know that he sees everything below - a bird's-eye view - you would say. These Messages* come into the world to give the listener a bird's-eye view of where the heart of the world is headed during the present age. It was never My Son's intent that people live in fear, unforgiveness and hunger not only for food, but hunger for power, popularity and money."

"The call of these Messages is to allow Holy Love to possess your hearts, thereby transforming the heart of the world. This is the path of Jesus' Victory."

* The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

Read 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5+

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the Word of the Lord may speed on and triumph, as it did among you, and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful; He will strengthen you and guard you from evil. And we have confidence in the Lord about you, that you are doing and will do the things which we command. May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"Continue on the path of reclamation in your country (U.S.A.). Good can only reign over evil if the difference between the two is recognized. When evil is confronted with the Truth, it becomes angry and defensive. This does not change the Truth, but highlights its reality."

"Being an example of the Truth can change hearts and reverse decisions. Do not be fearful of challenging opinions which do not reflect Holy Love. In the present moment in which you have such an opportunity, may rest the salvation of a soul. You never know what word or action will make such a difference."

"I am your Jesus, born Incarnate."

"You see the birds I send you. They land on a branch and remain a short time. That branch is their whole focus - their whole present moment. You must not allow the past or the future to violate your present moment to such a degree. To everything there is a purpose and a season. Accept what comes in each present moment, for therein lies your surrender to the Divine Will."

"You often do not see the reason for some things. God's plan is more intricate than your own. His reasons unfold in His time. Believe that My Father decides in His Will what is best for you. This is the path to peace of heart."

Read Romans 8:28+

We know that in everything God works for good with those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.

Synopsis: For those who love and trust God, all things work in accordance with God's Plan and Divine Will.

St. Joseph is here* and says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"My brothers and sisters, make of your families sanctuaries of Holy Love, thereby encouraging and supporting Christian prayer. I will help you with this in every way possible if you ask."

"Tonight, I'm extending to you my Fatherly Blessing."

* The apparition site of Maranatha Spring and Shrine.

St. Francis de Sales says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"You will not have true and lasting peace in the world until people recognize that the enemy of all peace is the evil that hides in hearts. This is the evil which opposes Holy Love. It is the evil which finds fault with good and accommodates sin to appease people. This same evil stills the voice of righteousness from the pulpit and amongst religious leaders. What good do you accomplish by not offending people but offending God?"

"There are nefarious collusions in the world today - groups of people and nations which are united outside of God's Laws and focused on power which opposes democracy. These are the ones uninterested in the difference between good and evil or the Truth. By your efforts of prayers and sacrifice you can assist in undoing these tangles of knots. No prayers or sacrifice is unworthy or too small."

Read Romans 10:1-4+

Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but it is not enlightened. For, being ignorant of the righteousness that comes from God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law, that every one who has faith may be justified.

Synopsis: The righteousness of man comes about by zeal and love for God, not by ignorance of God's righteousness.

Mary, Refuge of Holy Love says: "Praise be to Jesus."

"God will bless this country (U.S.A.) abundantly if it unites behind the effort to become a sanctuary for Christians. The need for this will become more and more apparent. Do not wait for the necessity to be more clearly defined. Begin to act now and the favor of the Lord will rest upon you. He will not hesitate to shower you with His Grace."

Read Psalm 28:6-7+

The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in Him my heart trusts;
so I am helped, and my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to Him.
The Lord is the strength of His people,
He is the saving refuge of His anointed.
