Micah 7:14-15, 18-20

My soul's beloved, You are a God of mercy and compassion Your anger lasts but for a moment Your love is everlasting. Just as God chose a people for Himself in the Old Testament, You have inherited people of every nation, tribe, language, and race. You have set us apart and through Your Spirit You are constantly at work in us. You have taken upon Yourself our guilt and in You we receive pardon for our sins.  You have claimed us from the jaws of death and of hell by laying down of Your life for us  paying the ultimate price for there was no other way by which we could be saved.

As the saving Victim You have cast our sins in the ocean of God's mercy and You have revealed that God is always faithful even when we reject Him. Thank You my Lord and my God for being my glorious inheritance.

Psalm 85:2-8

My soul's beloved, every promise that God ever made has been fulfilled in the Covenant of Love He made beginning with the promise to Abraham. Every time we turned away from Him and rejected Him He wooed us back. He withheld His righteous anger and showed mercy and compassion for He knows e are weak. In order to ensure that we could still inherit the Kingdom we had lost He willed that You become the perfect Sacrifice that would take upon Yourself once and for all the sins of all mankind and pay the price of sin which is death. In dying our death we were able to receive Your Life. You have set us free and You have restored what was lost. In You we are once again the children of God and co-heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven.
Matthew 12:46-15
My soul's beloved, thank You for Your assurance that anyone who does the will of Your Father is Your mother, brother and sister.  Perfect joy is to align our will to that of God there is nothing that can give us greater satisfaction than doing all things in accordance with His will and accepting all things as coming to us from the hand of a loving Father. Nothing will disturb us, nothing will shake us if we discern God's will in all things and obey promptly and cheerfully.
 

Thank You Mama Mary for  always saying yes to the will of God - there is no more perfect mother than you who are the Mother of God.
