God Expects A Lot Out of Us

God Expects A Lot Out of Us

March 11, 2016 A.D.

God expects a lot out of us, but He has given us a lot.

Our Lady said this past March 2, 2016:

“…Through His love I am coming to help you to find the way to the truth…”

The gift of Our Lady is a great responsibility to the Father’s love that has sent Her.

The gift of Our Lady is a great responsibility. The Father’s love has sent Her. Medjugorje visionary Ivan shares more:

“[Our Lady] has chosen me to be the “means” of Hers – to be the instrument in Her and God’s hands. For me and for my life this is a great gift. At the same time, it is a great responsibility. I know that God corrected me a lot, but I’m aware that He is expecting a lot from me. You know that rule: if God gave you a lot, He will ask a lot from you. But believe me, it’s not easy. It’s not that simple to be with Our Lady everyday, to be everyday in this light of Heaven and after this divine meeting to come back to earth and live a normal life. If you would be able to see Our Lady just for a second, just one second and not more, I don’t know if the life on earth, your own life on earth would be interesting anymore. After every meeting with Our Lady, I need a few hours to get back to normal, to be able to live on earth, let’s say, as normal as possible.” 1

In our everyday life, we should seek to be in Our Lady’s presence. A Friend of Medjugorje understood the need to structure the prayer life of the Community, in that everyday, the Community gathers in prayer to honor the moment of Our Lady’s apparition in Medjugorje. It is an honored and sacred moment of the day that has become the “norm” of everyday life. God has given us a lot in Our Lady, and it is our responsibility to take advantage of the grace for the time in the future when Our Lady will no longer be appearing on the earth. Begin to think about how your life can be re-structured according to the grace that is coming to the world today.
