Presenting our souls to God the Father

When we present our soul to God the Father after having freely and deliberately consented to give ourselves to Him, in essence we find ourselves kneeling before His Infinite Majesty, facing Him with the soul on the palms of our uplifted hands. The Alpha and Omega sits regally on His throne, facing us in immense splendor and Omnipotence, while Jesus stands closely to His right, with Mary standing next to Jesus in turn. God the Father, Jesus, and Mary all look at us patiently, silently, but most intently, while awaiting the handing over of our soul to God the Father in order that it may become fully His property. Meanwhile our Father radiates a most luminous and indescribable, albeit veiled, beauty that both extends and envelops all surroundings. Our soul resembles a clear orb of light that we hold up humbly and supplicatingly in front of, and to, our Father with our hands. The degree of clarity, luminosity, and reflectivity of the orb that is our soul manifests to what extent we have been successful in re-purifying our soul from the darkness of sin, through the combined effort of grace and receptivity to our Father’s grace in our lives, including the specific graces of reconciliation, re-purification, and re-dedication to Him through consecration.

We then proceed to bow profoundly to His Majesty, approaching slowly on our knees toward the steps of the throne upon which our Almighty Father resides. With courage, humble trust, and filial love in our hearts and minds, we then lift up our eyes to gaze directly upon our Heavenly Father, while concurrently stretching out our uplifted hands with the orb of our soul to give to Him for safekeeping and tending. Our Father benignly, but none-the-less majestically, arises from His throne and graciously descends the steps of the latter to meet us, taking both for and to Himself that clear orb of light, faith, trust, and hope that is our soul. As we continue kneeling there with our uplifted faces, gazing with unearthly stillness upon our Father’s Light and beauty, God the Father then proceeds to slowly ascend back upon His throne, while very tenderly and lovingly tucking away the orb of the soul closely into His left side, to preserve it with great vigilance and joy in, by, and through His loving Presence. The above is a brief description of what it is like to give our souls to God the Father, highlighting what it is like to become a truly adoptive child of God, in a union of fusion not achievable elsewhere.
