Before I met St Gemma I was only concerned with pleasing myself and achieving success in this world. I wanted to develop my career, live in a big house, drive a top of the range car and have recognition and admiration of my friends for world achievements….
But for what?
Occasionally I would achieve success at work, win at a sports event or even be admired by a potential spouse. These events, although short lived, would change my behaviour and I would become puffed up with arrogance and pride.
Whenever I saw other successful people I was immediately reminded of what I didn’t have and this made me angry, envious and resentful.
Should other people address me with reproof or even a slight contradiction I would become furious…..
…..like a beast that has gone mad.
Had I attained the successes I wanted? I was struggling with so many problems and obstacles that were preventing me from achieving any of my goals. This made me feel inwardly totally miserable. The world appeared to me a very hostile place and in the eyes of the world I felt a complete failure.
Now what I am going to tell you will amaze you….
Whether or not you are rich or poor, privileged or disadvantaged, makes not one bit of difference. This is because nobody living on this planet is truly happy.
The world, as we know it, is tarnished with falsehood and ignorance. We all have problems and difficulties to face. We are all met with disappointments, defeat and sadness and whatever hope we cling to is soon taken away from us.
What is left is nothing but emptiness, fear and despair.
Now let me ask you this question. Do you deserve to live your life in this way?
My pages on ‘Gods Grace’, ‘True Joy’ and ‘Remove negative thoughts’ will equip you with the tools you need to stand up as a warrior and fight the obscurity and falsehood of this world.
Say ‘No’ to weakness and misery. Say ‘Yes’ to inner strength, power and joy that can never be taken away from you….EVER.
Here are two practical exercises you can use to get you on to the path of victory straight away. Whatever your circumstances it only takes a few seconds of your time each day to say these powerful words;
Lord Jesus, come into my heart and make you my Lord and Saviour, Amen.
Pray for us, St. Gemma, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ, Amen.
Once you say these lines supernatural forces go to work. It was not too long ago when I was in a state of total despair. I decided not to focus on the size of my problems…..but instead on the size of my God.
I approached God in prayer expressing my concerns and asked for His guidance.
Within minutes God had answered my prayer as I came face to face with St Gemma. That day was a turning point in my life as St Gemma revealed to me the science of the Saints. I left my past life of misery behind and started a new life of everlasting joy where I am close to Christ and an instrument of God’s will.
No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
“Yes, Jesus, very urgently do I recommend this poor sinner to you …. He is mine, Jesus; imagine how I wish to save him! I know it, Jesus, I know it, he makes You weep: but believe me, Jesus, at present You must no longer think of his sins; You must think only of the blood which You have shed. How merciful have You been towards me! All these loving delicacies which You have had for me, I beg of You, have them also for my sinner. Remember that I wish You to save him with me. He is Your child, he is my brother, save him, Jesus!”
