I was reminded this morning that He is always there and He can speak and will speak when I just sit still and allow my heart to spill out before Him. He reminds me of His way. And He reminds me of His will. And He gently offers for me to choose it.
I see you. And I hear you.
Even though you sometimes feel that I'm nowhere near or that I've given up on you. I haven't. I never will.
I saw this morning when you chose grace over your natural response and I want you to know I am pleased. Your choosing grace over anger was big for you. This is My way and choosing it will not be wasted.
I've also been watching you struggle lately. What you are experiencing is nothing that I can't handle. You are in a season of life where many choose the path that is wide...the one that seeks to elevate self. That is not My Way. And many who choose it get lost in their journey. Some make it back to the narrow path and are blessed but some drift into a cycle of defeat and have no idea how they got there. It all comes down to a simple choice that seems more difficult than it really is.
In this time I encourage you to keep seeking Me and My Way. When you don't know what to do, be still and know that I am God. When you don't know what to pray, sing a song of praise. When you don't know where to go, thank Me. It's in those places where I can demonstrate to you just how very much I love and care about you.
Above all else know that I will never leave you or forsake you.
You are my daughter. The one I created and made...fearfully and wonderfully.
So today...rejoice. I made this day for you and it is a bigger gift than you could possibly understand.
