You’ve asked me to reassure you that a troublesome health situation will be obliterated as soon as possible. That is what you want. You think you’ve seen enough pain and suffering in the lives of others and even in your own. But down deep you know that pain and suffering are part of the human condition. No one lives a trouble-free life. No one. This world is not your home. In this world, terrifying things happen. I am here, however, in the presence of my Son, and in the Holy Spirit, for anyone who wants me. You will not find a perfect world until you come to be with us in Heaven. You will, however, find strength, wisdom, and comfort, no matter what is going on around you. You can’t change the past or the future, but I constantly deal with both in your life. My children are my jewels and you are one of them.
No matter what is going on around you, you can expect surprising serendipities and synchronicities, I give you rest when you need rest. If you spend a moment with me, I open inspiration and comfort directly into your being. It is all right to find diversions in waiting stituations. They help the time pass. I’m not against that. You are praying without ceasing wherever you go because Jesus is doing it for you.
I will always, always care for you. I will never leave you nor forsake you even when your whole life feels like chaos, agony, and despair. Nothing is happening that I have not seen before. Nothing can happen that I don’t know about.
As you anticipate the days ahead you can become fearful. You, however, do not have to solve everything in advance. More days will come after these. Some will hold discomfort, but others will have their share of joy. Don’t rely on your own perceptions. Find out what I think, both by reading the many personal letters I’ve provided in the Holy Bible and by listening to my words with your heart. Major on the good things, lean on me, and trust the people who love you. Remember, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. If you have no one, except me, I am sufficient. However you will notice that I bring others to help and comfort you. Don’t grit your teeth and bear things. You are never walking the path alone.
When your desires are fulfilled the way you want them to be, you thank me with all your heart. My question is: what happens if the hard times don’t stop right away? Will you thank me even if you don’t like what’s happening? That is a way of praise because it tells me that you know I do the best for my children. Maybe someday you will understand why it was best, perhaps you never will, but my dear one, I relish your trust. Remember, if you seek my perceptions instead of your own, you’ll get through with enough joy and peace to tide you over until you come to live in Heaven. Never let fear, self-pity, or exhaustion have the last word.
Will you let me love you? Will you let my son, who knows all about suffering, comfort you and continue to give you peace and joy? Will you not forget that others need you, too, that you are a much-needed role-model? I am the good shepherd. As we pass through the valley of the shadow of death, I carry you over my shoulders as if you were a lamb. We go slowly so take a deep breath and let me have your weight.
Let’s keep in touch. If you have questions ask me. I will give you the power you need to keep on walking with me one step at a time.
