My child, I am well pleased with You. Keep going – one step at a time. I am Your Father. I will not let you go the wrong way so long as you are seeking Me with all your heart. I am Your Shepherd. I lead you in the way you should go and keep you from harm. I am Your Bridegroom. I love you beyond what you will ever grasp. My love is infinite and never-ending.
So keep going one step after another though you cannot see the destination. I will not fail. My word will not return void and everything I have said I will do, I will do.
Come to me now in your weariness. You want so much to please me that you have picked up the load again, which was never meant for you to carry.
All burdens are mine – not yours. Maintain the attitude of a trusting child, busy about his or her current task and not worried about what comes next. Lay all burdens at My feet so you can dance freely the way I intended.
My love for you knows no bounds and I have loved you and given my life for you before you ever knew Me.
Rest in Me. Delight in Me. Do the work I have set before you in this moment with great joy. Keep your eyes on Me and your day. I will take you where I have promised. It will be in My timing. You do not need to focus there. Just do your day.
Today plus tomorrow plus the day after that and one by one you will complete the steps which only I know which will take you where I have shown you.
But do not miss the joy of today. Do not miss the blessing of today’s service in My name. Enjoy the now. Though it is not the fullness of what is to come, it is the fullness of the present moment and it is good.
Now even now I desire to use you and am using you every time you bow, listen, submit and obey. For many who do not know it, today is all they have. My fields are ripe for harvest. Do today. Rejoice. Do tomorrow. Rejoice. Whether what you are doing seems large or small to you, it is all the same size to Me. And after a time has passed you will look and see the distance I have brought you.
But never forget the path you see before you is about more than service and more service to Me and those I love. It is the path to greater closeness and intimacy with Me. And so you take a step today and another tomorrow, holding my hand, following where I lead and I will love others through you that they might know Me and with each step you will find your way deeper into My heart where you are invited to abide until we are together in the life to come for all eternity.
