My Beloved Child, Here I am in your midst. I stand right by your side. Take me by the hand and let me show you new things, things you’ve not yet considered. There are many paths to take in life but there is one perfect path that I have chosen for you. The path you are on may be difficult, but trust me that I will lead you in the right direction as you continue to look to me for guidance. The path you are on may be filled with thorn bushes and weeds which is making it challenging to walk forward. Do not lose hope, for on the other side of the thorn bush is a beautiful rose. I will show you how to find the rose. Do not cast your thoughts forward worrying about the future. Rest in the present where I am speaking to your heart. Tomorrow will be here before you know it, but today is where I want to teach you new things. I want to talk to you about the trial you are going through and help you to understand how keeping your faith in me while going through challenges is drawing you closer to my heart. It is in these times that I am molding you into my image and likeness, perfecting your heart. Have hope, My Child. This suffering is only temporary; remember the rose. The pain will pass and a new day is on the horizon. Rejoice in your hope; there you will find joy amidst the sorrow. Rest in my heart now and I will bring you the comfort your heart is longing for. My peace I am singing over you now. Embrace it with arms wide open.
Psalm 25:4-5 (The Passion Translation)
Lord, direct me throughout my journey, so I can experience your plans for my life. Reveal the life-paths that are pleasing to you. Escort me along the way, take me by the hand and teach me, for you are the God of my increasing salvation. I have wrapped my heart into yours!
