Do you not see how much I have been calling you to trust in Me? Trust is the key that opens all the treasures of My merciful and infinitely loving Heart. I am touched by a single act of trust in My merciful love more than a multitude of good works. The soul who trusts Me, by that very fact, removes the obstacles of pride and self-determination that impede my freedom of action. There is nothing I will not do for the soul who abandons herself to Me in a simple act of trust. ~ Anonymous, In Sinu Jesu
When will that day come when I have learned to trust in God perfectly? When will that day come when I can abandon all worry and fear and doubt in the Heart of Jesus? When I can fulfil in perfect obedience His will for me even when I do not understand the whys and wherefores?
I have no answers. If anything, I have more doubt in myself because my lot is cast with those who question and struggle endlessly with trust.
But I suspect this unexpected Lent journey to the Heart of Jesus through Adoration has much to do with the solution – if it is not the solution itself. Trust is the Everest of my faith journey. What if all I am called to is to merely present my sorry self before Him in Adoration and that Jesus will take it from there?
And then I recall, indeed, that was what He promised me,
This is really all I ask of souls – that you come to Me. And I will do the rest.
