My Word is full of life and is there for you to draw on to receive guidance for your days, hope for your tomorrows, and joy for your today. I encourage you to draw from my wellspring of life that lives within you through my Holy Spirit. You may not realize how close I am to you. My Father sent the Holy Spirit so that you and I could have everlasting communion with each other until the day I call my children home. If you have come up against an obstacle today, rest assured I will lead you in the way you should go. I have so much joy stored up for you in the treasuries of heaven. I anticipate every time you call upon my name. I love to converse with you, to teach you, to help you get through the difficult days. When you sing praises to my Father, all the angels rejoice and great joy abounds in my heart and my Father’s heart. Keep on believing and trusting in me. I will shine a light upon your path and fill your heart with gladness. I love you beyond compare. I am coming soon. Take up your cross daily and follow me. This life is nothing in comparison to the eternal joy you will experience when my children are united to me in the holy presence of my Father in heaven. Keep on pressing forward. I have called you for greatness. You are chosen. You are my child. You are my treasure. My heart is full of compassion for you. Reach out and take my hand. Come and follow me and I will bring you new joy. I am with you now. I am with you always. I always have been and I always will be.
Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
