Repressing oneself is worth more than acquiring a kingdom

The Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta the Little Daughter of the Divine Will:

This morning, since my most sweet Jesus was not coming, I went through a very hard time. I did nothing but repress and force myself, and I said to myself: “What am I still here for? What is the value for me of this repressing myself continuously?” While I was thinking of this, He came like a flash and said to me: “Repressing oneself is worth more than acquiring a kingdom.” And He disappeared.
