I am undone

I am undone. I stand before Him naked. I bring nothing but need. He is faithful. I am undone. He will care for me. I am a child. I am undone. I bring nothing. He is everything. In Him I am what he desires me to be. In Him I will have the strength to do whatever He calls me to. I can do nothing by my own power. I will do everything He asks by the ability He gives. I am undone. It is glorious and painful to come to know what I truly am… nothing. It is glorious and joyous to come to know that though I am nothing, I can do all things because of His goodness, His desire, His mercy, His will. He is good and perfect and holy and true. I am undone. But He will lift me, strengthen me, and send me until I see Him in all His glory.

I saw the Lord seated on a high and lofty throne, with the train of his garment filling the temple. Seraphim were stationed above; each of them had six wings: with two they veiled their faces, with two they veiled their feet, and with two they hovered aloft. “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts!” they cried one to the other. “All the earth is filled with his glory!” At the sound of that cry, the frame of the door shook and the house was filled with smoke. Then I said, “Woe is me, I am doomed! For I am a man of unclean lips, living among a people of unclean lips; yet my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!” Then one of the seraphim flew to me, holding an ember which he had taken with tongs from the altar. He touched my mouth with it. “See,” he said, “now that this has touched your lips, your wickedness is removed, your sin purged.” Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” “Here I am,” I said; “send me!” Isaiah 6:1—8

    I have just posted a comment on a subject of abandonment to the Divine will. To read more about it one can check http://www.divinewillinfo.org/ or the official  
    site at http://www.divinewill.org/ . St Faustina writes so much about it also. Many times have I been undone in prayer, since my conversion, I still am like a steaming Volcano sometimes. My spiritual life is very emotional as of now but I start to notice a lot more peace for a year now. Having said that, whenever I do say that, the opposite happens. God has a sense of humor and whenever I feel to sure, He gives me another test. He is full of surprises all of the time and so most consolations are in the most unexpected of times, like driving.
    God is so EVERYTHING, praise the Lord.

    healed, purified, chasened , tested, revealed. tears of sorrow, tears of joy, tears of healing , .. tears of comfort, repentance, forgiveness, forgiven, mercy, love , to the point one knows ones self.. to the point one gives ones self fully… then given back to God,….. to the point one can not do it alone, cant get through the test, cant love enough , cant repent enought or show enough mercy… given to God.. living in God . so God is the one who can.. for you can not.. then watch God work, His almight power heal, forgive , love renew, ……. I can not do what God wants me too, but I can allow God to work through me , in me , all around me.. and for me….. then I see the blessing of being me
