Trust and surrender

Dear Little hearts,

Jesus prepares our hearts by teaching us to say the, “OUR FATHER”….. it is by that daily utterance of, ” thy will be done “, that we grow slowly, very slowly into surrendering everything to his will. To adore, to surrender the sweet will of God is the most beautiful act we can ever make, for it speaks of a childlike trust and confidence.

IT IS NOT EASY…. to many things we can respond, thy will be done, but there is always a challenge somewhere along the road of life where this is not so easy and a real share in the Cross, but if we will but trust and whisper our fiat, ultimately we will know the resurrection.

This prayer , below, by Charles de Foucauld is very very beautiful, and shows a deeply in love soul with Jesus.

Some years ago in the midst of the Iraq war there was a soldier held prisoner I think for upwards of two years, later after his release he said that he had prayed this prayer every day of his captivity, I have never forgotten that witness.

From the Poor Clare Colettines TMD

The Abandonment Prayer
Blessed Charles De Foucauld


I abandon myself

into your hands;
do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do,
I thank you.

I am ready for all,

I accept all.

Let only your will be done in me

and in all your creatures.

I wish no more than this, o Lord.

Into your hands

I commend my soul;

I offer it to you,

with all the love of my heart,

for I love you, Lord,

and so need to give myself,

to surrender myself

into your hands,

without reserve,

and with boundless confidence,

for you are my Father.
