rushingriver1"A letter from Jesus Christ to the soul that really loves him"

"I know those moods when you sit there utterly alone, eaten up with unhappiness, in a pure state of grief.

You don't move towards me but desperately imagine that everything you have ever done has been utterly lost or forgotten. This near despair and self-pity are actually a form of pride. What you think was a state of absolute security from which you've fallen was really trusting too much in your own strength and ability. Profound depression and perplexity of mind often follow on a loss of hope, when what really ails you is that things simply haven't happened as you expected or wanted.


"In fact, I don't want you to rely on your own strength and abilities and plans, but to distrust them and to distrust yourself and to trust me and no one and nothing else. As long as you rely on yourself you are bound to come to grief. You still have a most important lesson to learn; your own strength will no more help you to stand upright than propping yourself on a broken reed. You must not despair of me. You may hope and trust in me absolutely. My mercy is infinite...."
