Ronda: Oh, Jesus, help! I woke up in a manic state over project ideas. Is this all wholesome bubbling joy, or is it a manic phase the devil is using to make me crazy?

Ronda: I am expecting a jumpy day with dental stuff, prayer group without Carol running it. I have a bit of anxiety about one of those encounters.
Jesus: You are, again, imagining your day as if it was you and them instead of you and I with them. This morning the reading was from the Beatitudes. Poverty of spirit means that you realize you can’t make all those encounters come out lovingly just because you have lots of insights about love in your books. This is because each encounter could either be a repeated pattern, often negative in tiny or big ways, or it can be fresh because you can’t know beforehand what I want to do in that situation. Also, it is the week of Pentecost. Call upon the gifts of the Holy Spirit, especially healing in the form of praying for the gift of healing to be a healing presence for those you meet who are suffering in many ways, bodily and in the heart.
