Be Satisfied With Me

“Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, To be loved thoroughly and exclusively.

But to a Christian, God says, “No, not until you are satisfied, Full and content with being loved by me alone, with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to me. With having an intensely personal and unique relationship with me alone.

Discovering that only in me is your satisfaction to be found, Will you be capable of the perfect human relationship, That I have planned for you. You will never be united to another until you are united with me. Exclusive of anyone or anything else. Exclusive of any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning, to stop wishing, and allow me to give you The most thrilling plan existing… one you cannot imagine. I want you to have the best. Please allow me to bring it to you.

You just keep watching me, expecting the greatest things. Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am. Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you. Just wait, that’s all. Don’t be anxious, don’t worry. Don’t look around at things others have gotten or that I have given them. Don’t look around at the things you think you want, Just keep looking off and away up to me,  Or you’ll miss what I want to show you, And then, when you’re ready, I’ll surprise you with a love Far more wonderful than you could dream of.

You see, until you are ready, and until the one I have for you is ready, I am working even at this moment. To have both of you ready at the same time. Until you are both satisfied exclusively with me.”

-St. Anthony de Padua

My dear sister, Elizabeth, sent this prayer to me in an email, and this is exactly what the Lord is doing in my heart. He has asked me to stop looking around for things that I want and rather keep my eyes completely focused on Him. He wants to give me His perfect love, and He can only do this if I am focused solely on Him! I am learning more and more each day to humble myself before the Lord, to die to the desires of the flesh, and allow the Lord in His own timing to reveal His PERFECT will for me! It is painful, but it is a joyful pain. Through this pain I am experiencing now, God can truly work in my heart because I am giving up my desires and allowing Him to transform me.

My prayer for you all is that you allow God to do the same for you! It is painful, but He wants to love us perfectly! He is our Father, our Creator. Who knows how to love us and fulfill our hearts’ desires more than Him, our Creator?!?! Keep listening and learning the things that [God] tells [You]. And then, “when you’re ready, [He’ll] surprise you with a love far more wonderful than you could dream of.” Keep your eyes of our dearest Father in heaven.
