My Lord, today You speak to me through Jermiah 30

vs 10-11 Fear not. Be not dismayed, for I will rescue you and your descendants. I am with you to save you.

You alone shall not be destroyed, but I will discipline you justly and not let you go unpunished.

vs 17 I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,

vs 19 From you will come songs of praise and merry making.

vs21-22 I will bring you close to me. You shall be my people and I shall be your God.


"Have faith. Believe that every prayer you pray has been heard and answered. Love Me. Love Me more. Love Me exclusively. Love Me passionately to make-up for the coldness of the world.."

"I will my God - with the help of your grace I will my God."

Zephaniah 3:14-18 Cry out with joy, O daughter of Zion; rejoice, O people of Israel! Sing joyfully with all your heart, daughter of Jerusalem! Yahweh has lifted your sentence and has driven your enemies away. Yahweh, the King of Israel is with you; do not fear any misfortune. On that day they will say to Jerusalem; do not be afraid nor let your hands tremble for Yahweh your God is within you, Yahweh, saving warrior. He will jump for joy on seeing you, for He has revived His love. For you He will cry out with joy, as you do in the day of the Feast. I will drive away the evil I warned you about, and you will no longer be shamed.
My Beloved Jesus, I am awestruck by Your Word today. I am nothing but a poor, bedraggled, unworthy, hopeless sinner and You say You have lifted the burden of sin from me. You call me daughter. You assure me that I need not fear because You, my King, are with me. You say You are within me and that my God is jumping for joy on the return of His prodigal daughter and will cry out with joy as at a feast. You promise to drive evil from me so I need never be ashamed. Thank You my Jesus! Thank You!!

Sirach 51:23-24 & 28-30, Micah 4:1-5 and Esther 15:13-14 and 5:3

My Beloved, You have said many things today beginning with Sirach 51:23-24 & 28-30, Micah 4:1-5 and finally Esther 15:13-14 and 5:3

Sir 51:23-30 Come near, you who are without understanding and join the school of wisdom. Why do you say you are deprived of all this and that your souls are thirsty? This is what I say: Buy this without money; put your neck under the yoke and let your minds receive instruction; it is very near and within your reach. Be instructed whatever the cost and you will gain what is better than gold. Let your soul find joy in the mercy of the Lord and do not be ashamed to praise Him. Do your work within the appointed time and the Lord in His time will give you His reward.

Mic 4:1-5
In the last days, the mountain of Yahweh's house shall be set over the highest mountains and will tower over the hills. All the nations will stream to it, saying, "Come, let us go to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the God of Jacob, so He may teach us His ways, and we may walk in His paths. For the Teaching comes from Zion, and from Jerusalem the word of Yahweh. He will rule over the nations and settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not raise sword against nation; neither will they train for war any more. But each one will sit in peace and freedom under a fig tree or a vine of his own for the mouth of Yahweh of hosts has spoken. While peoples walk, each in the name of his god, we shall walk in the Name of Yahweh our God, forever and ever.

Esther 15:13-14 & 5:3 Esther spoke: "My lord, I saw you like an angel of God, and I trembled with fear. For you look awesome although full of kindness. The king asked, "What is it Queen Esther? Tell me what you wish. Even if it is half of my kingdom, I will give it to you."
What do I wish from You my King? I want only that which You wish to give me. Nothing more and nothing less. I do not even know what to ask You and so I leave it up to your gracious Majesty to give me what You will. What You deem necessary for me to life a life that is always pleasing to You.. Thank Your Lord.

Isaiah 59:21

For my part this is my covenant with them says Yahweh. My Spirit which I have poured out on you, and my words which I have put in your mouth, will never leave you, nor your children, nor your children's children forever and ever.
What an absolutely wonderful promise my Lord, You confirm that You have not only poured out Your Spirit on me but it is Your Word, like sweet honey, that fills my mouth. Thank You for Your wonderful promise that You will never leave me, my children or my children's children. What an amazing God we serve!!!

Tobit 7:17

Have courage my child, the God of heaven and earth will change your sorrow into joy. Have confidence, my daughter!"


You have changed my mourning into dancing. Who would have thought it? Who would imagine that such deep sorrow for so many things done in my past could be turned around so that every sad experience would ultimately be an ocassion when You have led me from darkness into Your own dazzling light? You have shown me how all things can work for good if I come to You in confidence and trust.

My dearest Lord, how often in the past I have rejected the true, the good and the beautiful and deliberately chosen what was wrong in Your sight. Thank You for Your assurance that when we sin we have an Intercessor with the Father. Thank You for always answering me when I call. You make me feel safe and secure no matter how difficult life may be sometimes. You are my Rock, my Stronghold, my Refuge in whom I place all my trust.

Psalm 69:33-34, Matthew 6:8, 1 Peter 5:7

You who seek God may your hearts be revived. For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise those in captivity.
Matthew 6:8 Your Father knows what you need even before you ask Him.
1Peter 5:7 Place all your worries on Him since He takes care of you.
How good it is to know that You are aware of my needs even before I bring them to You. Some of my concerns are so small but they are important to me. Thank You for understanding and answering me with love. Thank You for this knowledge that gives me peace.

Ps 55:10-11

As the rain and the snow comes down from heaven and do not return till they have watered the earth, making it yield seed for the sower and food for others to eat so is my Word that goes forth out of my mouth, it will not return to Me idle, but it shall accomplish My will, the purpose for which it has been sent.
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. The Word is the power of God and the Wisdom of God. The Word is God. The Word is Life, Hope and Peace. The Word contains all that is true, good and beautiful and the Word is my Friend.

Isaiah 10:19-20

No more will the sun give you light by day nor the moon shine on you by night for Yahweh will be your everlasting light and your God will be your glory. No more will your sun go down never will your moon wane, for Yahweh will be your everlasting light and your days of mourning will come to an end.
Just as the heavens are brilliant with My radiance and need no other light, so too you need no other light than Mine to illumine all the areas of your life. Let my light shine in you so that you too will reflect my radiance.

You will never walk in darkness if you walk with Me. The light of the sun will fade and the moon will grow dark but My Light will shine forever

Psalm 27:1

My Lord,You are my salvation whom shall I fear.
The Lord is the rampart of my life, I will not be afraid.
True, my God, perfect love conquers fear. You have perfect love for me and that is why You looked death in the eye and crushed it under Your feet. As I come to love You more each day my fears vanish like mist in the divine light of Your love.
