Wednesday, September 9, 2009: (St. Peter Claver)

Jesus said: “My people, fame and money are fleeting, and they are gone tomorrow. Just as this crown was lowered, so all of your famous people will pass away. So do not seek the worldly things because they are of no lasting value, but seek heavenly things that will last. Look to Me and trust that I will provide for your needs, both earthly and heavenly. I give you the talents and opportunities to provide a living for yourself and your family. So do not worry about what you will need because I know your needs before you ask Me for them. Do not seek beyond your necessities because desires for wealth and excessive comforts and pleasures will lead you away from Me. Be content with your lot, and focus more on saving your soul and the souls around you.”
Jesus said: “My people, whenever you walk in natural settings without man’s development, you experience a serenity of nature in harmony. When you are immersed in My creation on your walk, you experience My peace in your soul. Not only do you desire exercise on your walk, but you also see the birds, deer, squirrels, and flowers along the way in their very habitat. You also see the need to save some wild lands so these animals can have their home to live as you do. When you walk among nature, you feel so great to be alive and experience My creation. Give thanks and praise to Me for giving you everything that you need, but trust that you will not have any fear of being denied your necessities. Life can have its ups and downs, and you will find times when you are frustrated or disappointed with things or people. But be calm and do not let any of life’s trials take away your peace, or allow you to be depressed over your difficulties. When you trust in Me daily, you will have confidence that I will solve your problems in time.”
