Dear Jesus, You know my favorite beatitude “Blessed is the pure of heart for they shall see God.” Flood me with purity of heart so nothing I say or do will offend you. Fill me with sadness if I become negligent and do something to offend my God for you are my light and my life. You are the sweetness of my soul!”

Jesus loves me unconditionally. I need to love him unconditionally as well. Jesus and I made a covenant a few years ago when I accepted him back into my life. I made a promise to never lose sight of him again. I made a promise to keep him in my life forever. So Jesus and I made a covenant to love each other unconditionally. Jesus has always loved me and will always love me. Here’s our agreement:
I will love and trust Jesus unconditionally.
Jesus promises to remind me to trust him such as every time I pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet.
Jesus to remind me when my trust in him is not 100%.
I to receive Jesus in Holy Eucharist every day if possible.
Jesus to give me a burning desire to be a living tabernacle of Our Lord.
I to read and study the Word of God so I will know and follow his way.
Jesus will send the Holy Spirit to guide me in my daily Scripture reading.
I to listen to Jesus with a pure and open heart.
Jesus to lead me to the confessional once a month that I may be absolved of my sins. I to listen to the priest as the voice of Jesus and follow his instructions to avoid sin in the future and that I may not commit the same sins I just confessed.
I to accept suffering in my life. I to unite my suffering with the suffering of Jesus on the Cross.
Jesus to send me comforting angels during hard times.
I to give to others what Jesus has given to me.
Jesus to guide me in ways to be generous with my time and resources to those in need.
I to devote my life to God for the salvation of mankind.
Jesus to reward me with the Kingdom of Heaven.
Jesus and I discussed other reminders, things I must do to remember our covenant, to keep my end of the covenant. Jesus knows what these are.

From St. Faustina’s diary – “The greatest sinners are the most deserving of God’s mercy.”

Today I thank Jesus for being with me all the time. I never thought this would happen but I realized just now while walking that I wanted this and because I wanted this I got it. “Thank You Jesus, My Love!”
