May the peace of heaven continually surround each of my beloved
apostles. My friends, there are times when the peace of heaven must
pursue you, because, despite its best efforts, you elude peace. My peace
then follows you, waiting for you to pause long enough to accept it.
When you bring yourself into My presence, then My peace can absorb you
and saturate you so that where you go, it can follow. If you are alert
to Me, you will see that others are blessed by Me through you. Dear
apostles, please accept that this is happening and be reverent about
what I am seeking to do. Are you with Me in this effort of renewal? Do
you seriously consider that I am determined to bring light to others
through you? If you will accept this more fully, I can work more freely.
If you move too quickly through your days, convinced that you are not
achieving as many actions and tasks as you would like, then you may be
missing what is obvious to heaven, that is, that you are surrounded by
grace and protected by light. When you rest into this reality, you will
see how effectively I am serving the world through you. Truly, I am
loving people and comforting them through your soul because each day,
Heaven moves into the world through the souls of those who are willing
to serve. Allow Me please, to continue, and allow Me please, to sustain
you personally. It is not My plan that you become dispirited and
hopeless. It is My plan that if you suffer, you suffer peacefully,
confident about My presence in your cross. I want you to work calmly,
confident of My effectiveness in your work. You must be brave enough to
love completely, confident of the benefit the world feels because of
your decision to serve Me in whatever place you have found yourself on
each day. Rejoice, dear apostles. Look forward with Me to greater
holiness. I will protect My plan for you, but you must make a decision
to accept heaven’s peace.
