Jesus is here beside you…

Dear Family of Mary!
”Dear children! Also today Jesus is here beside you, even when you think that you are alone, and that light does not exist in your life. He is here and has never left you or distanced Himself from you. The light of His birth illuminates this world and your life. His Heart is always open towards you, to receive your every pain, every trial, fear and need. His arms are extended towards you, that as a father, He may embrace you and tell you how important you are for Him, how much He loves you and cares for His children.
…” (12/25/20 – Jakov)
Our Lady assures us that Jesus is with us, beside us, very near to us, all the days of our lives. We think He is far off, but He never leaves us alone. We think all is dark, but Jesus lights our way by His great love. His Heart is always open to us, and He attends to our needs like a very patient and loving father…He is the best of fathers.
Our Lady’s words are like a healing balm for us. She speaks the truth! Jesus loves us, individually, with His immense love. We need to let His love in. We need to breath His love in. Take it into our souls and be filled by it.
Here is a Psalm that seems to express the same thing. Let’s pray it today with real openness of heart:
A Psalm of David
when he was in the Wilderness of Judah.
O God, thou art my God, I seek thee,
my soul thirsts for thee;
my flesh faints for thee,
as in a dry and weary land where no water is.
So I have looked upon thee in the sanctuary,
beholding thy power and glory.
Because thy steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise thee.
So I will bless thee as long as I live;
I will lift up my hands and call on thy name.
My soul is feasted as with marrow and fat,
and my mouth praises thee with joyful lips,
when I think of thee upon my bed,
and meditate on thee in the watches of the night;
for thou hast been my help,
and in the shadow of thy wings I sing for joy.
My soul clings to thee;
thy right hand upholds me.
But those who seek to destroy my life
shall go down into the depths of the earth;
they shall be given over to the power of the sword,
they shall be prey for jackals.
But the king shall rejoice in God;
all who swear by him shall glory;
for the mouths of liars will be stopped.
We may feel that we are in a dessert, a wasteland, like David. But truly God is with us. Jesus is near us, never leaving us. We are His beloved children. May we never forget this. We are not alone. We are loved.
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
