I Thirst – Saint Mother Teresa Meditation

I Thirst – Saint Mother Teresa Meditation

It is true. I stand at the door of your heart, day and
night. Even when you are not listening, even when
you doubt it could be Me, I am there. I await even the smallest sign of your response,
even the least whispered invitation that will allow Me to enter. And I want you to know that whenever you do invite
Me, I do come – always, without fail. Silent and unseen I come, but with infinite
power and love, and bringing the many gifts of My Spirit. I come with My mercy, with My desire to forgive
and heal you, and with a love for you beyond your comprehension a love every bit as
great as the love I have received from the Father I come – longing to console you
and give you strength, to lift you up and bind all your wounds. I bring you My light, to dispel your darkness
and all your doubts. I come with My power, that I might carry you
and all your burdens; with My grace, to touch your heart and transform your life; and My
peace I give to still your soul. I know you through and through. I know everything about you. The very hairs of your head I have numbered. Nothing in your life is unimportant to Me. I have followed you through the years, and
I have always loved you – even in your wanderings. I know every one of your problems. I know your needs and your worries. And yes, I know all your sins. But I tell you again that I love you – not
for what you have or haven’t done I love you for you, for the beauty and dignity
My Father gave you by creating you in His own image. It is a dignity you have often forgotten,
a beauty you have tarnished by sin. But I love you as you are, and I have shed
My Blood to win you back. If you only ask Me with faith, My grace will
touch all that needs changing in your life, and I will give you the strength to free yourself
from sin and all its destructive power. I know what is in your heart. I know especially your need for love – how
you are thirsting to be loved and cherished. But how often have you thirsted in vain, by
seeking that love selfishly, striving to fill the emptiness inside you with passing pleasures
– with the even greater emptiness of sin. Do you thirst for love? “Come to Me all you who thirst…” I will satisfy you and fill you. Do you thirst to be cherished? I cherish you more than you can imagine – to
the point of dying on a cross for you. I Thirst for You. Yes, that is the only way to even begin to
describe My love for you. I THIRST FOR YOU. I thirst to love you and to be loved by you
– that is how precious you are to Me. I THIRST FOR YOU. Come to Me, and I will fill your heart and
heal your wounds. I will make you a new creation, and give you
peace, even in all your trials I THIRST FOR YOU. You must never doubt My mercy, My acceptance
of you, My desire to forgive, My longing to bless you and live My life in you. I THIRST FOR YOU. If you feel unimportant in the eyes of the
world, that matters not at all. For Me, there is no one any more important
in the entire world than you. I THIRST FOR YOU. Open to Me, come to Me, thirst for Me, give
me your life – and I will prove to you how important you are to My Heart. No matter how far you may wander, no matter
how often you forget Me, no matter how many crosses you may bear in this life; there is
one thing I want you to always remember, one thing that will never change. I THIRST FOR YOU – just as you are. You don’t need to change to believe in My
love, for it will be your belief in My love that will change you. You forget Me, and yet I am seeking you every
moment of the day – standing at the door of your heart and knocking. Do you find this hard to believe? Then look at the cross, look at My Heart that
was pierced for you. Have you not understood My cross? Then listen again to the words I spoke there
– for they tell you clearly why I endured all this for you: “I THIRST…” I have never stopped seeking to love you and be loved by you. You have tried many other things in your search
for happiness; why not try opening your heart to Me, right now, more than you ever have
before. Whenever you do open the door of your heart,
whenever you come close enough, you will hear Me say to you again and again, not in mere
human words but in spirit. “No matter what you have done, I love you
for your own sake Come to Me with your misery and your sins, with your troubles and needs,
and with all your longing to be loved. I stand at the door of your heart and knock. Open to Me, for I THIRST… FOR YOU…

  1. “The God who made the world and all that is in it, the Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in sanctuaries made by human hands,” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭17:24‬

    Have you considered why God made the world? Why are you here at this point of time? God has done all that you see and are, for you. Then He gives us freedom to choose our destiny, will we return that love or will we deny it? “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, [then] I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.” ‭Revelation‬ ‭3:20‬. The only sanctuary that God truly wishes to reside at is in your heart. As I have heard recently from someone, "He is my everything", can you say that?

    Dear Lord God, I invite you in to dine with me. May I prepare myself to be a sanctuary for Your living presence. Take this day Lord and help me navigate it so it maybe a pleasing offering to you. I humbly ask for Your help in all that I do. Teach me Your ways and protect this child of Yours. I ask this through Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer, Amen.

    Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.

  3. Who are we that the one who bore our sins, is still knocking at the door of our hearts, and all we have to do is say "Come, Lord Jesus, I invite you."

  4. Small correction. This meditation was written by Father Joseph Langford. The co-founder (with Mother Teresa) of the Missionaries of Charity Fathers.

  5. I've heard this countless times because I need to be reminded. Fr. recites this with such emotion. I always cry – there is HOPE in Jesus.

  6. This is a beautiful meditation. I listen to it every morning. I would have loved to see more ethnic faces in the video though.

  7. Very well done video – I was going to use it at the Catholic high school where I teach before Thanksgiving break, however, We have a very diverse population. Not much diversity in this video just a bunch of white people. Jesus thirsts for all not just white people 😉
