Do Your Work As Far As You Can But Take Care Not To Neglect The Better Part
February 2, 1993
(I called the Lord but I could not hear Him. It made me sad. Suddenly the silence was broken by the sound of His step. And He spoke to me, reproaching me.)
My Spirit is upon you; day and night I have been waiting for you! respect My rules! why do you hold back our encounters? now you say, "how long will this last?" when only a few minutes went by; whereas I, I have been waiting for you several days! until when will I put up with you? you say, your joy lies in being close to Me; wretched you are for good! puny little creature, do not forget who holds you on your feet; I have treated you kindly and I have been your Support; explain then to Me your absence!
Give the poor and needy another chance!
I delight in nothing else on earth than Your Presence!
choose then to be with Me! I called you to My Heart, I have not called you to administration;
But who will do the work?
you have not admitted your sin!
Yes, I sinned for not keeping Your rules;
and for not being faithful to Me, say it!
and for not being faithful to You.
I will praise my Lord
and my soul will live for Him alone
and I will serve Him alone,
and my lips will sing for Him alone,
and my heart will pay attention to Him alone,
and now, my heart will beat for Him alone;
can the dust praise Me? can it proclaim praises to Me? no, not unless My Spirit lives inside this dust; without Me you are nothing; the light in your eyes comes from My Light; I will teach you to obey Me for I will level you to the ground; how else will I be seen? I mean to progress you into holiness; I will crown all My plans with success, so do not deny Me from meeting you; do your work as far as you can, but take care not to neglect the better part;
rely on Me to give you support and reinforce you; pray; we, us?
