The Will of the Lord
Love of My Passion, congratulations! (Jesus shares a personal and family joy.) Let us work a little bit more, because you will be busy with other things later.
When My children accept My Will, then they have accepted their daily tasks just as they are, because following My Will involves doing your best, with enthusiasm, in your daily life. If My children pay little attention to things, to their daily routine, they are hindering the fulfillment of My Will.
Some children say: I will do whatever God asks of me. My Will is before them in their activities, in their daily struggles, and when there is something special that I desire, it is My Spirit that inspires them and otherwise motivates them. But, the most important thing is that which requires care in their lives: their families, homes, order in their devotion to what they were given on earth; to the responsibilities they took on before My Altar.
Quite a few people have different opinions on what is My Father's Will. They try to achieve things that go beyond their simple daily functions "in order to follow Christ". Since problems arise or they do not have enough time to do what they had intended, they reach crisis point, become exhausted and lose heart… They do not really know how to see My Will. They do not realize that if I want them to go along a different path from the one they are on, I will let them know. What can I do? Different opportunities and options arise for them; their choice is centered around that which brings them closer to a life of prayer, of peace, totally abandoned to My hands...
The way towards doing My Will is a simple way; not always easy, but satisfactory; with real, permanent values and virtues. Therefore, do not try to develop your life thinking that a certain way would please Me more. What pleases Me is when you face your daily challenges and opportunities that arise to live My Will with acceptance, enthusiasm and peace of heart, without avoiding the responsibilities that, as human beings, have been assigned to you. Competent men or women should work for their living. Wives who do not work outside the home should devote themselves to their domestic tasks, to supervising their children, their homes.
How much harm parents do to themselves and to Me when they spend their spare time on mundane entertainment: night clubs, games, the television, the telephone. Yes, the telephone, you heard right. It is not wrong to use the telephone or to chat a bit. But if the telephone robs you of hours of tranquility, prayer, finding Me, or peace at home, stay away from it. Use this time to talk with your family, to find out each member's concerns and problems.
Understand that I want you to find Me in everything you do regularly and not in places other than those I offer to you every day, such as your daily struggle, your daily bread that will nourish you for eternal life. Doing My Will is to assume all the commitments that life offers you and to take responsibility for them, whether they are moral, family, economic or social commitments.

Rivas, has received an official imprimatur from the Catholic Church for several books she says she was instructed to write by Jesus Christ, Mary and various Angels. Scoop’s extract, above, comes from Rivas’s book “The Door to Heaven”.
