Be Satisfied With Me by St. Anthony of Padua

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone, to have a deep soul relationship with another, to be loved thoroughly and exclusively.

But to a Christian, God says, “No, not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by Me alone, with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to Me with having an intensely personal and unique relationship with me alone.

Discovering that only in Me is your satisfaction to be found, will you be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you.

You will never be united to another
until you are united with Me alone, 
exclusive of anyone or anything else, 
exclusive of any other desires or longings.

I want you to stop planning, to stop wishing, and allow Me to give you the most thrilling plan existing . . . one you cannot imagine. Please allow Me to bring it to you.

You just keep watching Me, expecting the greatest things.
Keep experiencing the satisfaction that I am.
Keep listening and learning the things that I tell you.

Just wait. That’s all. Don’t be anxious, don’t worry. Don’t look at the things you think you want; don’t look at things others have gotten or that I have given them. Just keep looking off and away up to me, 
or you’ll miss what I want to show you.

And then when you’re ready, I’ll surprise you with a love far more wonderful than you could dream of.

You see, until you are ready, and until the one I have for you is ready 
(I am working even at this moment to have both of you ready at the same time.)
Until you are both satisfied exclusively with me and the life that I have prepared for you, you will not be able to experience the love that exemplifies our relationship with Me -and this is perfect love.

And, dear one, I want you to have this most wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with Me and to enjoy materially and concretely the everlasting union of beauty, perfection and love that I offer you with Myself.

Know that I love utterly. I AM GOD. Believe and be satisfied.
