Child, the joy of the Lord is your strength. I will lead you today. But you must listen for My voice as I speak to your heart. Trust Me, and obey as I lead you. Especially remember, the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Lord, thank You for the peace I now feel.
Child, your peace came from obedience. You know, . . . trust and obey.
Lord, help me bring You honor and glory.
Child, you are.
Lord, I gave up that project. And I hate I gave it up. Because I could have been somebody and I could have had a ministry.
But My Child, you do have a minstry, your family and those I put you in contact with. So be happy with these I’ve given unto you to minister to. After all, who are you working for? Is it for your glory, or Mine?
Oh Lord, I want to work for your glory.
Then My Child, minister to those I place in your path.
But Lord, dealing with some of these people is so difficult. Lead me, teach me. Really, I can’t deal with these people without Your guidance and Your wisdom.
My Child, look back at your prayers for these. Look at the good that happened. I am indeed working all things out for good.
So let go of your worries, even about the feelings of others. Look to Me. Allow Me to guide your steps, your ways, and your words.
Lord, help me.
My Child, don’t worry about pleasing others. When you seek My will, to please Me above all else, then I will work out all things for your good and My glory.
In fact, I am working out all things now. So let go of your worries and trust Me.
