Encountering Jesus in your soul will have the effect of leading you to long for more. Do you long for more of Jesus? Do you long for His Mercy? The desire for Him, the desire for more, stretches us and enables us to receive more of His Mercy every day. Let the desire for our Lord grow in abundance within you (See Diary #18).
Spend time, this day, looking at your heart. Is it daily being stretched by the abundant Mercy of God? Do you see your soul being filled each day to the point that it feels like bursting with gratitude and overflowing with love? If not, know that God wants to pour this abundance of Mercy into your life.
Lord, I am open to You and Your Mercy. But I know there is so much more that You wish to pour out upon me. I know You desire to fill my soul with Your grace to such an abundance that it overflows with love of You and with love for others. Help me to be open to this abundance of Your love and Mercy. Jesus, I trust in You.
