Hunger for Righteousness
As we hunger for righteousness, we must realize that it must begin with us. Just like The Prayer of St. Francis says, “Let it begin with me,” so must we begin righteousness. Here are some words of Jesus that will help us begin to implement righteousness in our lives.
”My brothers and sisters must remain where I have placed them in all calm, and in all trust…I would like you to begin walking with Me in earnest…Do you want to know how to please Me? Allow Me to speak through you. Allow Me to act through you. Allow Me to love through you…I want you to begin practicing something different. I want you to calmly bring Me with you in everything you do and everything you say…You must notice that I often use the word calm. I refer to calmness and the spirit of calm. Why do I do this? Because often My children get excited and that is not from Me. How will you change because I work through you? You will be quieter, more thoughtful; you will smile more and frown less. You will overlook the flaws of your brothers and sisters as I overlook yours. I will align your priorities so that your priorities are directly influenced by My priorities…All is well and God is firmly directing all.”
Sweet Jesus, let it begin with me.
