My Beloved Soul
My son knew what it would take to change peoples hearts. He knew that in order to save you in every way, it would take his sacrifice on the cross. He knew the depth of your hurt and your unforgiveness. And so he gave himself up to the crowds, lived out his words of love for you right to the end. Walk lightly. Let go of your tiresome burdens. My son gave his life so that you might enjoy the forgiven life. Don’t let him down.
“Just Father, the world has not known you, but I have known you; and these men have known that you sent me. To them I have revealed your name, and I will continue to reveal it so that your love for me may live in them, and I may live in them.” John 17: 25,26
MY BELOVED SOUL
Why would you want to be in charge? Why would you want to have to fix everything for everybody? Where is the fun in that. And I can definitely see you are not having fun. Today, give up the job of trying too hard. Put up your feet and let your mind rest in knowing that I am taking care of your loved ones. Give yourself, your sweet soul, your beautiful spirit a vacation. Relax and laugh more today. Leave your worries with me. Put your take charge self aside and go into the quiet. I am there and I long to give you the comfort you need to live in peace.
This is another day, O Lord.....if I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And If I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly.
