for those who hurt……
Lift up your head and look at Me. What you see is not all there is. I am doing a new and grand thing. I am using all things for good in the lives of those who love Me, in light of eternity.
What the adversary had meant for evil, I will use for good. Nothing can thward Me. Nothing. My love stretches from here to eternity. Suffering here is but for a moment and then…forever with Me. Do not linger on the sad memories. Spend enough time with them to grieve and grieve freely when the waves of emotion come. But do not linger any longer there than you must.
Look forward. I have plans for you. These plans are good. Certainly there have been things which have happened which were not your will; certainly, these have hurt. I know the ache of your heart. But if you will take My hand, I have places to lead you before I bring you home to Me for eternity.
What do you fear more? What human beings can do to you or about pleasing Me by following Me? Do not be afraid. I am with you. Be who I made you to be. Do what I put you on earth to do and don’t worry about what any other person thinks or says. Do the right thing. Stand up for yourself and stand up for others. Do it as I lead. Do it in love. Do it out of love for Me.
Trust and far Me alone. Sacrifice the security you seek from others by looking for their approval and look only to Me. You cannot fail Me; you cannot disappoint Me. You are My child and I love you.
Yes, you may choose to walk away from Me and I will honor that, but I will never walk away from you. I know your weaknesses and your strengths. I made you. And I also know how I desire to have My Spirit fill, strengthen, empower and work through you that you might be healed and step with great joy and incomprehensible peace into the work I have for you.
The work is important. It will spread the truth of My love. It will bring My encouragement. It will open eyes to the truth of My superior, supreme Way. It will cause others to see My majesty and glory and come seeking Me so I can be found by them.
I love them all. Will you help them find Me? I will heal your pain. I will make it bearable. Press into Me and enter into your life’s purpose. Take one step then another. My work will fulfill you. It will bring some sense of satisfaction. It is your purpose. Do you trust Me? (Am I your Lord?) Follow where I lead. I love you.
