Since April 1, 2021--it seemed that in my life, a battle was raging. A spiritual battle, or God discipling and testing me? Both, and it was rough!!
Health problems in both my husband and my life became worse. Doctors seen and tests being done and follow up visits before we both can see answers to the symptoms.
Meanwhile, life and serving God goes on. God and the Holy Spirit kept reminding me--to consider all trials pure joy for you are gold being purified and found worthy in the crucible of humiliations.
Over the last two weeks, as weakness, tiredness and 'what is wrong' got stronger---there in the 'fire' was God leading me to write 5 blogs. He was strongly impressing me that, "Revelation is being fulfilled."
But before these messages being sent to me, MARY has been appearing and appealing to us for YEARS--to Pray, repent and be changed so we can love with the love of God all who come into our lives.
We all know about the secrets of Fatima, and her appearances in Medjugorje and Garabandal. However, did you know about Mary appearing in Ecuador in 1988?
When I drew away to seek God's Word for my symptoms about "what is ailing me, I was led to this story. Here is the link to read all about the two years that she spoke to Patricia or Pachi Talbott, a teenager who was skeptical about Mary appearing in Medjugorje.
I like what was said in this article found on the website.
"The importance here, as in all other reported messages from the Mother of God is to live the Gospel, to be one with God, united to the Passion of Jesus. We should not focus on the sequence of events, which are to unfold in our world, but to prepare ourselves diligently for the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus."
"Our Lady also gave Patricia words of warning, coming catastrophes, both natural and man-made, possible world war, suffering in our Church and in the world."
( As with the children of Fatima, a secret was given that was not to be shared UNTIL a month before it happens. Mary warned of what would come in the next 10 years. 2000 to now--much indeed has happened that she spoke of.
All of Mary's messages are now connecting to what God is telling me and what you have read about in the past 5 blogs. If we are not seeing this---ask God to help your mind see what your eyes are not.)
Then today, I opened to another book--and found this Scripture spoken of.
Acts 2 verses 17-20 17
‘It will come to pass in the last days,’ God says,
‘that I will pour out a portion of my spirit upon all flesh.
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
your young men shall see visions,
your old men shall dream dreams.
18 Indeed, upon my servants and my handmaids
I will pour out a portion of my spirit in those days,
and they shall prophesy.
19 And I will work wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below:
blood, fire, and a cloud of smoke.
20 The sun shall be turned to darkness,
and the moon to blood,
before the coming of the great and splendid day of the Lord,
21 and it shall be that everyone shall be saved who calls on
the name of the Lord.’
I thought of Mary's prophecy about the Warning, the Miracle the Punishment and the Era of Peace. https://www.garabandal.us/prph_warn
I am also reminded of the Prophecy of 'Three days of Darkness. Again, here is the link to learn of these prophecies. https://www.virgosacrata.com/three-days-of-darkness.html
Dear beloved of God--HEAR the Words given, the Messages given and obey --these words especially. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY. Seek the Holy Spirit to open up your hearts to ANY area of your life that is not LOVE as Jesus LOVES. Give God permission to reveal what needs to be changed in your life. His own personal message to me today, as I deal with ?? illness, "Repent means to change IF you want to be HEALED!"
Now He has already shown my heart what needs repenting of---but only you can ask God to show you what needs to be repented of-- when He does, confess those sins and change --for without GOD we are NOTHING!!
P.S. After writing this last blog---my symptoms are gone as I admitted there were areas that needed to be changed, and I listened to. and DANCED to God's awesome praise music. Two songs truly blessed me with "Healing" today. That and Mass and Holy Communion. Hail Mary - YouTube and "Only in God is My Soul at Rest both by John Micheal Talbot. Peace be with you as you breathe in the HOLY SPIRIT!
Born the youngest of nine children, raised VERY Catholic across the street from our church and school—Mom and Dad led by example and word their FAITH in God and saw to it that I was given 12 years of Catholic Education. (Mount St. Mary’s Academy/1965)
But, most importantly, because of my parents’ spiritual renewal after attending Cursillo Weekends, I too went on a retreat at our beloved Subiaco Abbey in Arkansas and there, at age 20, gave my life totally, surrendering all to my Lord and best Friend. This was my “Pentecostal” event that left me, like all the early Christians, on fire with God’s love and forever changed.
My husband Robert and I have been married for 50 this year in a marriage arranged by God. We have 8 children, two in heaven, 24 grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren. The story of our life together can be found in a book titled “My Journey, My Cross-As the Journals End,” published by Westbow Press . Our life together has been one awesome up and down roller coaster ride which enriched my heart with so many of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I have found that the only way, Wisdom, Understanding, Words of Knowledge, Discernment, and Healing can be received is first by experiencing in your life the hurts of others. (and you yourself a sword will pierce)* so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” Luke 2 v 35.
God has blessed me also many other talents and skills--but sometimes, blessings/gifts can and have caused problems or conflict in my life, as I am human and all too quickly that part of me shows up. Thank You God that You also show up!
Because of the many ways that He has rescued me, and taught me through my trials and tribulations and continuous cries for “Help”--- a weekly podcast radio show called “It’s Me, God” can still be found on www.radiotitans.com
