Cares of the world

My child when you get wrapped up with the cares of the world and forget me, you miss out with our times. You miss those sweet intimate times of communion that I want to share with you. You feel the lack when you take the time to slow down. You miss me. There is a longing in your heart. You have a choice to make. You can either come back into my presence or you can believe the lies of the evil one that I am mad at you. The choice is yours. I will never force you to come into my presence. I am not mad. I understand your life and realize that the cares of this world will occasionally pull you away. But, do you love me and want to return to me or is the pull this world too strong on you? That is the question you must ask yourself time and time again. It is not a one-time choice. It is a daily, minute by minute choice you make to follow me. Come, I ask you to come into my presence. You see, I miss you too. I love you forever and ever.

    Hi Mary, your blog is very profound. I graduated with you at IWHS. I am also on this journey with our Lord . I call it my journey to aloneness. Not that I am alone I am officially an empty nester. Divorced 15 yes. But I have two young adult children family and friends but this has been a time for me to find who I am who God created me to be . My naked self as Father Richard
    Rohr says. My true self. Finding God in all things in the silence , to be, be still . Knowing that God is walking with us through our struggles, pain, sorrow, loneliness, joys, God is Love and whoever lives in Love lives in God and God in them.
