Fret not that there are rocky paths and high mountains. I am here to help you move around them and over them. Do you understand that I traveled them first? I am an authentic, competent guide. Trust Me!
Meditation Thought: Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” Mark 14:38
“Watch. Be conscious of who you are and where you are and what you are doing. Be especially aware that you are not alone. I am with you. Fear not. Fret not. Regret not. Simply walk with Me, communing in harmony, moving constantly toward a more perfect relationship and a more perfect understanding of what is taking place and My guidance in that situation.
Remember our past walks together – many roads frightened you – but it was these roads which let us commune in a more vital and closer way. So it shall be again. This road is difficult for you to travel – but you are not travelling alone, nor are you travelling without a perfect destination for you and I to travel to and revel in at the end of the journey.
You are fascinated that you experience more than the physical qualities of life. You love “coincidences” that bring joy to you or to someone else. Do not forget your inspirational moments and the results of them. These moments are not the only moments you are to experience. Trials are a part of life on earth – but trials are also a way of moving closer to heaven – not simply heaven after death of the body, but glimpses of heaven while you are on earth.
TRUST: It is a pattern of life that the one who needs knowledge must seek it to find it. You are on the Way; fret not that there are rocky paths and high mountains. I am here to help you move around them and over them. Do you understand that I traveled them first? I am an authentic, competent guide. Trust Me!
Since I didn’t create anything on my own, I can’t control anything on m own.
Meditation Thought: “…whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
“Think about such things. This is the key to opening the door that reveals the reality of My creation. You would have me orchestrate every detail so you could be comfortable and happy and content 100% of the time. This is not feasible. Our relationship could not have the depth we both desire if we did not have the interaction of dealing with problems and of solving them together. You do get frustrated – even somewhat rebellious and angry at times when you are aggravated with visitations. But think: How often have these annoying situations brought about visibly good results when you pray and when you try to deal with them competently? Yes, you know! Much good for you and for others has resulted. Your trials enable you to ease the way for others who have similar trials – just as you experience their helping you from the knowledge gained from their own trials. You may not like this arrangement, but it is My will and My plan. Accept it; there is a purpose, and you shall gain as you learn from each experience.”
Response: All right, Lord. I admit I’d rather have my own way – all ‘sweetness and light’ in my life, but since I didn’t create anything on my own, I can’t control anything on m own. I’m ‘stuck’ with You being my ‘parent’ as well as my Creator. I don’t often think of it as ‘being stuck’, but at downhearted moments, I have to admit that I’d like to have my own agenda. At one level I know I’m not that competent, just as a child is not competent to handle the situation he is exposed to at times. That doesn’t stop us from being ‘pouty’ at times, though, does it? Thank you for forgiving us when we realize that we hadn’t seen the whole picture clearly and that you were right after all!
