Jesus2

We speak of surrendering to the Will of God. What are we surrendering, though? Look at ourselves. We are full of emotions, ideals, goals, desires, wishes. We are fearful of sickness, death, loss of income, loss of tangible and intangible things. The list goes on and on and on. All of the above can be good, but to obsess over any one of these can be very harmful to our well-being.

When the loss of, or the fear of losing any one of these causes us to change our way of acting, they have become an obstacle and not a goal. Let me explain. Just as a child knows that the mother loves it, and all is well when she is present. In like manner, we are that child, and God is that parent. We know He loves us. Surrendering to His will is nothing more than trusting Him, trusting His love for us. When we put our trust in Him, His answer to our prayers, may not be what we want, but He knows what is best for us. Oh Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything.

Day 4:

You see evil growing instead of weakening? Do not worry, Close your eyes and say to me with faith: “Thy will be done, You take care of it.” I say to you that I will take care of it, and that I will intervene as does a doctor and I will accomplish miracles when they are needed. Do you see that the sick person is getting worse? Do not be upset, but close your eyes and say “You take care of it.” I say to you that I will take care of it, and
that there is no medicine more powerful than my loving intervention. By my love, I promise this to you.

Oh Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything! (10 times)

Day 5:

And when I must lead you on a path different from the one you see, I will prepare you; I will carry you in my arms; I will let you find yourself, like children who have fallen asleep in their mother’s arms, on the other bank of the river. What troubles you and hurts you immensely are your reason, your thoughts and worry, and your desire at all costs to deal with what afflicts you.

Oh Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything! (10 times)

Day 6:

You are sleepless; you want to judge everything, direct everything and see to everything and you surrender to human strength, or worse- to men themselves, trusting in their intervention- this is what hinders my words and my views. Oh how much I wish from you this surrender, to help you and how I suffer when I see you so agitated! Satan tries to do exactly this: to agitate you and to remove you from my protection and to throw you into the jaws of human initiative. So, trust only in me, rest in me,surrender to me in everything.

Oh Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything! (10 times)
