Adopt Habits That Keep you Faithful to My Words
The Lord

Beloved one, why did this happen? I did not like the answer you gave your Mother at all. Call her and say you are sorry. That is not what I want in you. What is the matter with you today? You are very irritable. Come, take up your Rosary and meditate on the Joyful Mysteries. I know is not the day for the joyful ones, but they will help you to contemplate My Mother’s peace.

Two days ago I told you not to let them influence you in your decisions. Do you not know that when I live next to you, in you, I am the One who makes the decisions?

They want to see you? You set the conditions, whoever want to visit you must adapt to your schedule. They do not like it? What a shame, but you are carrying out your work with Me and we are interrupted too often.

I want you to understand this: In a life of dedication, an engineer begins by working out in the field, in the hot sun like the workers. But time goes by and he gets a job in an office and out in the field. Later he becomes a manager, and finally he is given a very special position... If it is a housewife, she will begin by burning the food and end up preparing delicious, complicated dishes for her family.

DH-78.1 Responsibility in Your Country

Now, let us apply this to real life. You must start to change, because that is part of the price you will pay for the graces that I pour on you and, through you on this country. Nobody else in this country has this responsibility that you have. So, you need a lot of hours for working with Me, hours to guide you to Me and hours to organize My interests like a good Secretary. Only an organized Secretary can keep her boss’ things in order....

DH-78.2 False Humility

This might seem contradictory to you: on the one hand I ask you for humility and meekness, and on the other I solemnly tell you that you are not the one who has to check on the group or people and their activities, but quite the opposite. Everything has a place and each one of you should be in your place. Everything else is false humility, and you know that I cannot tolerate that.

You must experience the shelter of My Love so that the creation around you can be enlarged in My goodness, with your emotional state.

Work to keep your equanimity. Change your habits and adopt true habits that will keep you faithful to My Words…
