PASSAGES ON JESUS FINDS REST IN THE SOULS WHO LIVE IN HIS WILL FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

Jesus finds rest in the souls who live in His Will.
As I was in my usual state, my always lovable Jesus made Himself seen in my arms, in the act of taking rest. I pressed Him to my heart, and I told Him: ‘My Love, say a word to me – why are You silent?’ And Jesus: “My beloved daughte(Luisa)r, rest is necessary to Me; after I have spoken to you(Luisa) so much, I want the first effects of my words within you(Luisa). You(Luisa) – work, doing what I have taught you(Luisa), and I will rest; and once you(Luisa) have put my teachings into practice, I will come back again to speak to you(Luisa) about higher and more sublime things, in order to find rest more beautiful in you(Luisa). Besides, if I do not rest in the souls who live in my Will, in whom could I hope for rest? Only the souls who live in my Will are able to give Me rest. The living in my Will forms the room for Me; the acts done in my Will form my bed; the repeated acts and the constancy in repeating them are the lullabies, the melodies and the opium to favor my sleep. However, while I sleep, I watch over you(Luisa), in such a way that your will is nothing other than the outpouring of Mine, your thoughts the outpouring of my Intelligence, your word the outpouring of Mine, your heart the outpouring of my Heart. Therefore, even if you(Luisa) do not hear Me speak, there is such dissolving of yourself within Me, that you(Luisa) do not want, nor think, nor do anything but what I want and do. So, as long as you(Luisa) live in my Will, you(Luisa) can be sure that everything that happens within you(Luisa), is Me.”
