Lord, there’s so much work to do. I have several blog posts started, but not finished. Ideas are swirling around in my head. Write this, write that. That’s a good idea. No wait, this is a better idea. Which one should I write first?
My wonderful blog friends have sent me several awards I need to answer. I so enjoy their praise and I do like being noticed. Everyone likes a pat on the back. They are wonderful with their words of praise to me. I do enjoy reading about their lives, both their struggles and their victories. I ‘m attached to several of my blog buddies.
But Lord, I feel overwhelmed and I don’t know where to begin. I don’t know what to say. I don’t know where to start. What do I tell them?
My child, tell them “I AM HERE. I see all. I know all. I AM all.”
I have come to bring them peace and joy. If only they would come to Me.
Come to Me and I will fill you. Seek My Presence and I will grant you wisdom. I’ll supply all you have need of for I AM your supply. Open your eyes and your heart to see I AM all around you everywhere you look. Even in the midst of chaos, I AM there waiting to fill you with MY peace.
I’ll direct your steps if you would look to Me. I AM.
A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Psalm 37:23
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Psalm 32:8
Lord, I don’t understand so much. You promise peace. What about all those suffering all over the world?
My child, suffering began with Adam and Eve. Did you notice that I only forbid them not to eat of the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil? I did not forbid them to eat of the Tree of Life. Did you notice that? It was only after they made their choice that I cut them off from Eden and the Tree of Life. You think that was My punishment, but actually it was My mercy. I returned to mankind the Tree of Life when My Son hung on it. It was through His death that life for all came.
You have said it was a mistake that I gave some free will. You said some men should not have free will because they are so cruel to others.
Yes, some men abuse free will just as they abuse each other. But look at those that have chosen to help others sacrificially. My heart swells with pride as I watch how they show forth My love one to another. With the knowledge of good and evil, some choose evil and some choose good.
Why did you allow the evil men to have free will?
I gave all men free will. It is up to each one to choose. I have provided for all the Tree of Life. It is their choice. Love forced is not true love. I long for true love just as you.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:37-39NKJV
