Me: Lord, please direct me and tell me what to do. I’m anxious and unsure. I know you won’t guide me wrong. Please speak.
Me: Lord, are there any words? Please don’t be silent, Lord.
Long have I waited for your coming home to me and living deeply our new lives…Hosea song
Lord God Almighty Father: Child, come to Me.
Me: I am here, Lord.
Lord God Almighty Father: Pray. Pray often.
Me: Yes, Lord.
Lord God Almighty Father: Make sacrifices. Child, do you know what is to come?
Me: You know I do not.
Lord God Almighty Father: So it is. Trust in Me, little one. You do not know the path, but I do. You do not need to stumble so. Why must you insist on leading? You cannot. The sheep do not lead, see? The sheep know the Shepherd’s Voice and are to follow. They do not fear where because the Shepherd will lead them.
Lord God Almighty Father: You see these priests and you feel fear? Anxious? (I was at Eucharistic Adoration and saw two priests had come in, proceeded to get some hosts out of the Tabernacle. They then left.)
Me: Yes. Something is wrong. I feel like I’m going to be sick. What is this?
Lord God Almighty Father: Daughter, truly you do not know. Pray for them that the Lord’s hand may guide them.
Me: Why didn’t you say My Hand?
Lord God Almighty Father: A little chuckle. Pray that they have guidance.
Lord God Almighty Father: Little one, write.
Lord God Almighty Father: The winds are blowing stronger now. You feel them? The people of the earth know in their souls something is off, but most choose to ignore it. Do you, little child? For the pains I feel at this generation’s indifference will be met with what they ask. Nothing. I will not bless a people that is not known to Me, which chooses false gods before Me. Truly I say they will be destroyed. Worse than Sodom and Gomorrah are these generations. Repent! Repent and believe!
Me: Lord, I can’t share that. Destroying generations? Surely not. Please no. Look. Here are believers. They are in generations. Save us!
Lord God Almighty Father: Little one, few hear Me. Even fewer seem to believe without hearing. Believe.
Me: And what of the believers?
Lord God Almighty Father: Heavy is your burden. Help as many brothers and sisters as you can. Pray for them. Forgive and believe. For your faith too will be shaken. Much will come to pass that will cause your heart to sorrow. Stand firm in your faith. Read the Bible. Find strength by calling out to the Holy Spirit and turn to Mother Mary always in your times of need.
Lord God Almighty Father: Feed My sheep.
Me: Lord, I’m not a priest. I can’t do that. Isn’t that what you told Peter? I remember that from Church last week.
Lord God Almighty Father: When famine hits, feed My sheep.
Me: Lord? With what?
Lord God Almighty Father: I will provide.
Me: I don’t know any sheep to feed.
Lord: I will provide.
Me: Lord? Can you just make no famine? I’d rather that.
Lord God Almighty Father: I must bring My sheep to Me. And they will not listen. So this must be done. I have already removed My Hand/Arm from the world. You are seeing the results/consequences now. This generation doesn’t think they need My Blessing. So I removed it. But still there is hope. Through despair, there is hope.
Me: I think I understand. Like how sometimes you have to be in pretty bad shape before asking for help? You’re allowing us to get into really bad shape by not intervening.
Lord, that’s pretty rough.
Lord God Almighty Father: Yes. (Must?) I am a merciful God, and this is My last Mercy. Truly a time comes when a path must be chosen and then there is no longer a yes or no. Once that choice is made, you are damned or not.
Me: Lord? But there is always Reconciliation?
Lord God Almighty Father: Soon the priests will be few, and those serving Me won’t always be within the Church. Some within the Church no longer serve Me. So, yes, go to Reconciliation now. The time of the choice is not with you yet. But it draws near.
Lord God Almighty Father: Stay with Me.
Me: Lord, this makes my heart heavy. I’d ask for it to be lightened but if it better serves you for it not to be, so be it. Do I seek a spiritual advisor now? I feel like something is changing.
Lord God Almighty Father: Child, you are mine alone. I will direct you with what to do. Didn’t we talk about sheep following?
Me: Oh, right. Sorry.
Lord God Almighty Father: I will guide you.
Me: Today? I know I’m impatient.
Lord God Almighty Father: You are a child. Be still and practice patience and silence.
Me: Sorry. Maybe a spiritual director could help with that? Just kidding. Come with me to dinner? Love you.
Lord God Almighty Father: Child, I am with you always. Do not forsake Me or forget your path.
Me: Yes, Lord.
