It is your Choice… A Life in Joy or a Life in Frustration
January 5, 2018 – Words from Jesus thru Sister Clare
(Clare) Jesus, You alone know the path to our highest good in this life. Please help us come to terms with the self-will that can dominate our thinking and frustrate your highest good for us… Amen.
Well, recently my heart has longed to go deeper into the Word of God, and I find myself fascinated with details and how they connect and what they mean. But I am concerned for time. The Lord has told me…
(Jesus) “You can choose to study this book and that book, or you can meditate on the Scripture and I will infuse you with knowledge and understanding. You don’t have to wade through the opinions of others and their conclusions. You can rest in Me, and I will satisfy your hunger for Truth. What did your Instinct tell you?”
(Clare) I felt a little check, because of the cost. But then I found it marked down, at a really good price. But even then, I did feel a little check, and a sense of unsureness. So often in the past, I see that I have given myself permission, because the reading was not definitive one way or the other. And I honestly didn’t know what to do – so I did what I wanted to do.
(Jesus) “You still do not know yourself well enough to curb your appetites. Satan doesn’t care what he wastes your time on, as long as it sets you back and keeps you from what is truly important. Don’t you recognize this yet, Clare?”
(Clare) Lord, I am beginning to.
(Jesus) “Your curiosity is killing you. There is only one way around it… obedience to that flutter in your gut, in your heart. If it flutters, pass it by – no matter how beneficial it looks to you. We are going to get where we need to be, My Love. It just takes time. You have to become weary with the blind alleys. In the meantime, the clock does tick. May I outline this for you?”
(Clare) Yes, Lord. Please do.
(Jesus) “Read the Scriptures, but do not get snagged on the details. Read between the lines and listen for My voice and My leading. Pray, dwell, take communion, deliver messages, sing and play the piano. That is a very full schedule for you and will protect you from these disastrous side – tracks and dead ends. The foundation I laid in your life, for this walk, came with St. Francis.”
(Clare) And just as a background, I was a habited Franciscan sister, with a vow that gave me an immense amount of freedom and deliverance from the world. It was really quite amazing. It was cut and dried. I needed God and prayer. Meditation on the Word and love for my God and my neighbor.
(Jesus) “For you, this was laying down of your flesh. It would be good for you to work your way back to that — it was the purest. Just add your current duties and you will do very well, indeed.”
(Clare) Uhhhh… Yes, Lord. It is as I felt it yesterday. I love you so very much, but I know with that confession comes the challenge to obedience. I knew that today I would have tests of that love. And I didn’t pass…
(Jesus) “I’m not going to make you feel any worse about yourself. But I will say, you are getting there. You are recognizing Satan’s loop holes and the ways of pulling you off course. It took a long time for you to get here, but you are here and it can go quickly, smoothly and very rewardingly if you persevere from this point. Defer to My wisdom, Clare. And TRUST.
“My people, your perspective on your lives is very slim. It is determined a great deal by your desires to know things that, in the end, are irrelevant. The only way I can save you the heartache of a bad conscience and lost time is through your obedience. You know when you push the envelope. You have that shaky, unsettled feeling in your hearts. That means: Wrong direction — go back! If you ignore that, you just get deeper and deeper into self – will.
“In the long run, if this continues, you need to ask yourself… ‘Do I really WANT to serve the Lord?? Or do I want to serve myself.’ I would love to save you the wasted time. You need to go deep and ask that question of yourself. If you are struggling, without any success, I would suspect you are not ready to serve Me.
“I can always make you ready, if I know that is your heart’s desire. But YOU must begin to make the effort. Cooperate and yield to Me. Time matters. The longer you wait, the more you lose. And you lose a lot that could have been — and made you happy, as well.
“Now, if you do something that you are unsure of and feel a deep satisfaction afterwards — a real, alive feeling. Not a sinking heart, but an encouraged, enlivened heart. Then you have done the right thing. Proceed.
“This is so simple, a two-year-old could learn it — and does. Children do many things by instinct, and withdrawing from something not good for them is very often done by instinct. This is one very positive attribute you could rekindle in your lives. Living for Me is so very simple. I train you in your conscience. But if you want something I’d rather you don’t have, you will find ways to justify it.
“I am extremely patient, but I do wait for you to wake up. And there is a loss of connection with Me when you ignore My counsel and keep going. And that doesn’t feel good for Me or for you. I hate it.
“I want you closer and closer to Me by the minute, and that means obedience from one moment to the next. Obedience brings a great reward. One reward builds on another reward, until we are of one heart and one mind.
“THIS is what I want for you. Is this what you want from Me? If it is, I have just given you the way to attain it. Be obedient at all times. Ask yourself, ‘What would make my Jesus happiest with me?’ Then do that thing.
“Don’t stop to ponder what you will lose by doing it — just do it! When you examine all the self-will plus-points, you can stack them to the ceiling, trying to justify your will.
“But it will never reach to Heaven, which is the dimension you are in when you are obedient and we are dancing cheek-to-cheek, so to speak.
“There is nothing I enjoy more than our pure union of hearts. In that state, we do everything together, and it is the closest thing to Heaven on Earth. It’s up to you. I am willing, but it will cost you much.
“Your pet projects and ideas will have to be laid down for what I want you to do. This is where a lot of souls falter and compromise. But I will never give up on you. I will continue to coax you to die to yourself, so that I may have free reign in your life.
“Please consider. What do you really want to look back on at the end of your life? A life dissipated with many dead ends? Or a life of great accomplishment in being in union with Me? A life of frustration? Or a life of Joys!
“It is your choice, My Beloved. I have already made My choice.”
