Do you believe that Jesus can help you?

Yes, but!!

How often I hear this as I pray with people and especially mothers for their children!

‘I know Jesus can help…but…my little Mary did this and my little Johnny did that and it’s just so awful’.

When Jesus hears this He smiles! With a loving heart He desires to reply back

‘I know little Mary and Johnny too, I know all their lives, their favourite foods, their worries and problems, I can help them, trust me’!

And you see the more you trust the more you are giving Jesus access to them! Remember that trust is the key to grace!

“I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image with the signature: “Jesus, I trust in You”…. The graces of My mercy are drawn by means of one vessel only, and that is — trust. The more a soul trusts, the more it will receive.” (Diary entry 327)

And so dear friends today I suggest a little spiritual exercise to grow your trust!

1.When you are talking about your problems, listen to yourself and to what you are saying and listen very closely for that little word called ‘but’!

2. And when you hear yourself saying it, smile and add on another ‘but’ by saying ‘but nothing is impossible to God and so I’ll trust in Jesus with it all’.

3. And then change the conversation or your thought process into something positive and remind yourself of all the things God has done either in your own life or for others and ask Him to increase your trust even more!

If you do this every day and make it a way of living you will see miracles and if you wish to advance even more then offer these areas of distrust to Jesus at mass and when you go to confession mention them as sins against belief!

By doing this your problems will turn into the best food for growing your faith and healing your soul and you will be a beaming light of trust and hope even in the darkest holes of life!

So friends, no ‘buts’, just trust, trust and more trust in Jesus who is God and before whom every knee shall bow!

Jesus, I trust in you

Jesus, I trust in you
