“Every day is a new day for you to walk and talk with me. Every day is a new opportunity for you to draw near to me, to find me right where you live…not only physically, but in your mind. The stirrings of my Spirit within you are genuine and these are the things that I want to get into and through you because they will bless me, fulfill you, and encourage those you love.
You have not arrived at the destination yet, but you can trust me in the journey to get you there. Continue to open your mind to me and look for my revelations for they will be the lessons that give value to your life. I am faithful, and I am your Father who will do this as you remain open to my work and purposes for you.
I have made you and will continue to make myself known to you. Growth comes through submission to me and a desire to do my will, however, it is a choice. It means you must be willing to let go of your own desires to focus in on my desires for you. When you feel weak, remember that your weaknesses help to keep you focused on me and what I am doing in you. Use them to draw near to me so I can teach you.
Growth takes time and comes in waves. I am careful to ensure the waters will not overwhelm you, so you are able to navigate your way through. The truth is that as you open your heart, and submit to me, I can carry out the work that needs to be done in your life. Walk close to me and know that I desire for you to be the best version of yourself, the person that I created you to be. By allowing my presence into your days, all these things are possible.
Focus your heart and mind on me and know that I am with you wherever you go, and in all that you do because you love me. My blessing is upon your life.”
