December 28 Echoes of Eternity
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, . . . All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
Child, the distractions of your mind are the fruit of your rebellion. For years you have thought that your mind is your private possession, not realizing that the adversary was using it as a “play-ground.” You come to Me, desiring a quiet and settled dialogue with Me. You find instead a veritable crowd of extraneous thoughts and images seeking and finding entrance into your “side” of the dialogue.
Confess and yield up these contrary intruders quickly and return to Me. In quietness and peace you shall possess your soul. There is much work to be done here. Think soberly about these things if you really desire to go on with Me in these meetings. Do not imagine that you have progressed far in this. Remain keenly aware of where you are coming from and how far you have to go.
