I Want to Teach You Something: the Way to Find Me in Each Moment of Your Life

Little daughter, I want to teach you something: the way to find Me in each moment of your life. If you have success upon finishing a job, or you rejoice in something, immediately say: Blessed be God, thank you! And when you do not have success you must repeat the same, because in that case I also deserve your gratitude since you do not know of the treasure that I am preparing for you for accepting failure or suffering.

If someone blesses Me in the midst of his problems and sufferings, he does everything that can be done. I do not desire more. This is more valuable then if he were to whip himself during the course of 24 hours or strike his chest from morning till night. You must serve Me with gladness and also make others happy. Many souls who are close to Me exist, but yet cannot find me at all moments of their lives. Happiness as well as pain can separate Me if they do not learn to be with Me all the time. But, if they are always with Me, then happiness and sadness will be indifferent to them.

You must learn to pray beyond the conventional prayers and for that you will take the following steps:

  • Always live in the presence of your God.

  • Experience as a true reality the fact that I live in you.

  • Find Me in each moment of your life, like I find you.
  • Even when you speak with others, stay in Me. Never take a step outside of Me. While you listen attentively to your brothers, offer Me their case and their souls. If I send you to a person who may ask you to pray and who asks you to implore to receive some favor, only say: "I shall do it". I will hear you when that person really needs it, but if this is harmful to his soul, I shall refuse.

    Plan on doing penance for all those asking for prayers but who offend Me. I cannot accept some prayers because the person does not trust Me completely. All of you want Me to fix your affairs to your liking; and do not think that I am the only One who knows what is best for you and that I can fix your affairs for your benefit and happiness!

    In 1999 Katya Rivas was the subject of a top-rating documentary show hosted by Mike Willessee (see Scoop TV review - Jesus Christ Tells FOXNews He Wants To Hug World and Scoop Images ). More recently Rivas says she was instructed by Jesus to have her books translated and published on the internet with the intention of having the books distributed to as wide an audience as possible.
