Inside, Outside – A meditation

Thank you for all who prayed for me. I have completely recovered from COVID19. No one else in my home contracted it. Praise be to God. As I look back on all that has happened, I can only thank God for answering many of my prayers. I would never have picked for myself how He chose to answer them, but that is why He is God and I am not.

I want to wish all of you a Blessed Easter Season. I got to go to the chapel for a long time today, my first time in awhile. I meditated on the greatness of God and the following is what I wrote. I often completely understand why Saint Thomas Aquinas quit writing after His experience of God. Nothing could ever actually put to words the awesomeness of God. Still, I write meagerly, because I cannot contain what I want others to know. God is good all the time.

Inside, Outside

From all eternity love existed.

Love lives outside of himself and so begets creation.

Love provides for creation, and so the Father gives.

The Father wanting His creation to love as He loves gives the freedom to choose it.

Free from coersion and filled with life giving love, the creatures can choose to be like the Father.

But rebellion is chosen, closing in on themselves.

A veil surrounds the creatures the way a pregnant mother’s body surrounds a baby in the womb.

Waiting for love to be born again.

Time held within the Creator until the Son can rebirth true love into the world through the Immaculate vessel of uncreated and created Immaculate Conception.

The Son takes all corruption inside Himself to die, wanting that His creatures would give their corruption to Him to die.

Wanting that His creatures desire only what love desires so true love can be birthed outside again.

Changing the laws of nature and rising from the ashes. Physics beholden to love.

The purging of corruption from the inside, to the gift given freely on the outside.

The creator is the host of perfection wanting mini hosts of perfection in His creation.

All operating at a higher level, a new heaven and a new earth exploding with love and creativity.

An outward expression, for God so loved the world that He gave His only Son.

Death of inward corruption begets outward purification that the Spirit may dwell within.

Divinization.

The creatures give outside of themselves and hand our everything to the Creator.

The Divine Will dwells inside, perfection permeates everything.

The Resurrection of the Body and Life Everlasting.

Have a Blessed and Happy Easter season and do not despair the times we are in, we were made for them.

    Thanks for this post. I’m so glad you are feeling better! Your writing is an inspiration for me. Sometimes I feel so abandoned by God, and I read you beautiful words and feel inspired all over again

    Susan, glad to hear you are well again! Happy Easter! Thank you for this reflection and particularly the last line, which gives me strength with the dilemma I am facing re. the vaccine. I have put my trust in God, but it’s baby steps of faith all the way, especially under pressure. Please pray for me. Thank you.

    As I read it, I immediately thought of the “new” word of knowledge coming from the anonymous source of the 1990 Prophecy. It is posted at SpiritDaily :

    “Know it is the time for great love. Without it, all will be lost. The enemy seeks only to define division. In the search for goodness must first be found love. No war is an accomplishment. The Lord seeks strong warriors and the greatest weapon is the sword of proper metal, which is as gold. All that radiates goodness has origins in love, the signature of the Power of God. Deceive yourself not, thinking animosity is righteous antagonism, a virtue. No greater lie is in the arsenal of the enemy.”

    PS-
    On the subject of “gold” , the saints have explained that it is the sign of holiness and purity in Sacred Scripture. Here is a recent blog from Mary that reiterates this “meaning” of “gold” :

    Susan,
    Been following you for a few years. Your stories have been inspiring.
    This is probably not a place to ask for a prayer request, but don’t know who to turn to.
    Don’t have a spiritual director and haven’t attended mass since last March because of the COVID-19 restrictions. In the meantime I broke my hip. Doing ok
    Asking prayers for my husband. He has some dry major health issues. He was catholic but has fallen away from faith. Asking God for a miracle both spiritual and physical. Saying the surrender prayer continually.
    Thank you so very much. God bless you and your lovely family.

    Dear Mary, I read your comment a few days ago – since then I have been praying for you in my rosaries. I am so sorry to learn you broke your hip. In prayer, I was led to invite you to pray to St Andre Bessette. There is a novena to Andre that is very powerful. I’ll leave this with you for your discernment. God bless and God heal you

      Thank you Mary. Truly appreciate your prayers. Brother Andre is special to me. I am going to look up the novena to him. May God bless you abundantly.
