Do you believe in Me? I believe in you! Do you love Me? I love you! Do you trust Me? Trust in Me? Do you know the power of My Love? Yes, power, powerful stuff, the best, the most original power source. Can you hear Me? Hear this truth I speak unto your heart. You are so loved.
You are naturally empowered, in-powered. Your power comes from within, not without. You need not look afar. It is here now within you waiting, on hold, paused, ready to resume full speed ahead. You are in command, command of the forces, the powers that be, which lay in wait for your orders. This is the work you have to do. Decide what is to be. Stake your claim. Call My name. Speak your truth. This is the work you are to do.
I can see your glory. You have a friend in Me, in you. Together we are entwined. Sail forth into your dreams. I hold your hand. I walk beside. My eyes can see what yours cannot. Trust in Me to do what’s best for you. You are My Love. I am your heart.
Fill your mind with goodness, for goodness sake! Don’t look back. Keep your eyes on the road ahead. Just around the bend you will see your glory. Well, glory be!
Your faith, your trust, was broken. So you gave up hope. Why hope for the best when failure hurts so badly? You are better off, you say, as if to prepare yourself for the worst. For then you will be prepared. Prepared to fall and not be further saddened by dreams not fulfilled. You gave up, gave up on the promise of life, the opportunity for goodness to come to you. You said, “I know this game of life and know it isn’t fair. Life has hurt me so. I will not be hurt again. I will drop my expectations low and within my direct vision. I refuse to be tricked and played fool again.”
Make a list of all the fun ideas that are fun to think about, fun to imagine. You have to perceive it before you receive it. Begin anew each day. Put away your old ways. Think anew. See anew. Be anew. A new day dawns, wake up world, live anew.
It’s like a song stuck in my head, except the words are fresh, each thought anew, telling me exactly what I need to do. Make me a channel for Your Peace. Make me a channel for Your Love.
