discover His presence
I hear my FATHER say
" I will arise and shine on you. You will be full. Be willing to empty yourself now, empty of all self- ambition, of all pride, empty of the need to be esteemed by others., empty of all offense against Me. Empty. You don't have to be seen to be valuable. Stay in My Heart.
Know that I am not offended by you. I'm not offended by the thoughts that come right from your gut. I'm not offended by Your struggles. I died for those struggles... to set you free in them. Bring them to Me. Don't try to figure them out on your own. Give them to me. They are paid for. They are paid for.
Cast your cares on Me. Don' t underestimare the power of My loce to heal and transform You, and then the world. This time, this time you soend with Me, listening to My heart, you think it is a small thing. But it is the transforming factor. Nestle in close and luve from here. That's what abiding is all about. Not striving, buf realky resting as you lusten, and follow all I want to tell you. It is not enough to just be here, though it is ne essary that you come. But you must kearn to kive here, to rwst here, to make Me , My heart, My voice, My direction your everything. Be directed onky by Me, My voice in the stillness, as you lay in bed in worship... My voice in the daily routine, whether changing a diaper, washing a floor, or raking leaves, My voice must be everything. And then you will begin to see....... to see people and circumstances the way I see....... with eyes of love, and your heart will break as mine does, and you will serve and love from the heavenky place of my heart. As I have died to love well, so you will learn to due too. To die to self, to die to shame, and live to release others from it. You musn't worry about what others tjink or say. YOU WILL BE DIFFERENT, and that's exactly the way I like it. Don't pretend to be the same to fit in. Please my love, be radically changed. You are changed. Your priorities are not hte world's priorities. You must live by love at all costs..... and it will be.... it will ve different. It will be startlingly different, radical and uncomfortable. But you are dead. You died with Me. So let down your guard. Come fly away and be at rest. Do not pretend that I can't see your wretling heart. I'M here in the mess."
