As you step out in faith, following what I’ve placed before you, you will come to the understanding how I will meet you. For my will for your life is somewhat different than what you think. And though you understand bits and pieces, there are still many things you do not fully understand. So grasp what you are able, and follow as best as you are able, and do not concern yourself with trying to understand every single aspect of your path in life. For there are many things which are yet to be discovered and it is not possible for you to fully grasp every little detail at this point in your life. Continue Reading…


For as you come to know me more and more you will find I am completely limitless. You know me in part, and because you are limited, you presume I am also limited. But as you come to know me more and more over the years you will find this is not true. You presume I am like you, because this is all you know, and this is what you are so very familiar with, but this is not true. For I am entirely different than you. I am not limited. I do not grow tired, weak, or weary. I do not sleep or run out of energy. I do not forget. I do not neglect. I do not become overwhelmed, fearful, or worried. Continue Reading…


Even when you are stuck in times of brevity, when you do not have sufficient time to devote to the things which matter most in your life, I am there. Though you feel I am distant from you in every way, understand and remember, I have never left you. I will never forsake or forget about you, for you are my Beloved. And though you are busy with your day to day activities, I am there with you even still. Continue Reading…


For my love for you is great. And though you know this, you also need to be reminded of this again and again. For your hearts grow tired easily. Your mind loses focus easily. You forget your way, and forget my words, but even still, my love for you does not waver. So because I am The Good Shepherd I give you what you need. So I remind you frequently. I say it again, and again. And because you lose your way, I guide you back to your path. And because you get tired, I pick you up, and feed you and comfort you, because I love to give you all these good things because you need them. Continue Reading…


For as you enter into my rest I will turn your tears of fear, heartache, and disappointment into tears of laughter, joy, and amazement. For my goodness is greater than your heartache. My redemption is greater than your disappointment. My love is greater than your fear. And all these little things will be swept away, remembered no more as you encounter me again and again in the place of my rest. Continue Reading…

Enter Into My Rest

Neil Vermillion —  December 24, 2015 —  Comments


Enter into my rest, my Dear One. For in fellowship with me all your worries, cares, and fears will melt away. In union with me you will be free to play, free to frolic, free to dream without hindrance. So enter into my rest and put your trust in me. For my plans for you will prosper you. My plans for you will satisfy you. My plans for you will bring you to the fullness of your potential and you will come to the manifestation and realization of who you are in me. Continue Reading…


For I know where you have come from. And I know where you are headed. I know who you are. I know how you think. And I know your limits and hurts and fears. But in spite of all these things I am inviting you to come to me, and I will make all things new again. I will make your mind new. I will make your heart new. I will make your dreams and plans and hopes new again. And even your memories of the past, I will renew. I will redeem and restore all things, even things from your past that have already happened. Continue Reading…

My Joy Is A Gift To You

Neil Vermillion —  December 22, 2015 —  Comments


My joy will go before you. My joy will open your heart. My joy will speak to you, and you will find rest, protection, and recuperation in the midst of my joy. For my joy will sustain you. My joy will invigorate you. My joy will be a gift and a blessing to you, but it will also be essential to you as well. My joy will be crucial and imperative and will become your greatest delight. And for this reason you will accept no substitute, but will grow in your insistence of experiencing my joy. Continue Reading…


Each day is a launching point for you. Each day is an opportunity for you to choose to move forward, to remain where you are, or to go backward. In each day you have choices again and again, and it is up to you to decide how you will respond. So choose wisely, for your choices matter. And when you are confronted with many choices at the same time, and you feel overwhelmed and confused, do not hesitate to reach out to me. For I have heard you already and I will make myself known to you as you call out to me. Continue Reading…


Though so much seems as it is slow in arriving, slow in developing, slow in maturing, understand it is not slow. For in your presumption you think I am negligent. In your presumption you think I have forgotten. In your presumption you think I am incompetent. But you think these things because you do not know me. You think these things because these things are familiar to you. You think these things because it makes sense to you and aligns with your experiences, paradigms and perspectives. But as you come to know me for who I really am, not what you project onto me, you will see my timing as beautiful, glorious, and excellent. Continue Reading…


You resist me as if I am working against you. You resist me as if I am moving you away from what is best for you. You resist me as if you know me not. Rather than resist me, trust me. Rather than push against the wind, allow yourself to observe and cooperate. For in your openness I will reveal and show you many things and you will prosper. I will guide you to things you’ve not conceived or perceived and you will be blessed. Continue Reading…

Rest, Receive, And Follow

For you press and pull and stress and strive, but what good does it do you? What can you accomplish by your worries? Can you add another hour to your life? Rather, seek me and come to know me. For in your quest you will surely find me. And in your discovery and exploration you will uncover many answers as you learn valuable lessons along the way. For I am your ultimate destination, but I am also your ultimate journey as well. Continue Reading…


For within you are many things. And within you are many paths, many directions, many options. But I will guide you. I will steer your paths. I will inspire you, and I will direct and orchestrate the timing of them all. For there are many layers, many aspects developing simultaneously. There are many directions progressing at different rates, yet I will manage them all. I will bring them all to their destined and scheduled fulfillment, and I will do so, not only excellently, but precisely on-time as well. Continue Reading…

Amazement In Our Union

Neil Vermillion —  December 14, 2015 —  Comments


And it is for my good pleasure I have seen fit to bring you close to me. And in our union you will come to know all the glorious riches you have inherited. For your mind sees things backwards. You see things upside down. You see problems, where the victory has already been accomplished. You see obstacles, where the solution has already been presented. You see heartache, when you have already been given direct access to the most glorious source of joy and happiness that has ever existed. Continue Reading…


There are such wonders and delights in store for you. As you come to me I will continue to reveal them one at a time, one after the other, again and again. And you will find I will amaze you and surprise you, even though you have already known these things from a distance. For my glory and my splendor are greater than you imagine. My righteousness and my capacity for generosity are greater than you imagine. My forgiveness and my patience are greater than you imagine. So forget your notions of who I am and allow yourself to imbibe on the wine of the reality of truth. Continue Reading…


The great extremes of my love for you will be shown to you again and again as you are willing and able to sit with me and realize them. For I have made them freely available to you already, and I will show and remind you again and again. For my love for you is great, and my patience for you is great. All I have in store for you is so very great. And as you allow me to speak to your heart you will come to find there is never any need to worry or to fear. Continue Reading…


And though it seems your life is progressing so very slowly, understand I have never forgotten you. Understand I have not abandoned you. Understand you are in the very center of my sight. For my plans for you are not the plans you have conceived for yourself. But in the times of delays, confusion, even catastrophe, I have also given you my grace to support and sustain you. So when you feel lost, confused, abandoned and neglected, remember the grace already given you. For my grace will be more than sufficient for you. Continue Reading…


For in your limits you will encounter the edge of yourself. But in this edge you will also discover where I begin. As you encounter your limits you will also begin to encounter me. So as you feel yourself being drawn and lead to the edge of yourself, to your very limits, do not shrink back from this. Do not hide yourself from the limits set before you, for in facing, confronting, and acknowledging your limits you will also discover your dependence on me. Continue Reading…


As you step out past the norm, into that which is beyond your natural means of comprehension, you will discover an entire new realm. But though this realm is new to you, it has always been there, has always been available to you. For even today I am calling you out, to venture into the deeper things, past the confines of your natural realm and out into the eternal. For the deep things of my spirit are calling out to the deep things I’ve placed within you. And these deep things, these deep longings, will never be satisfied with superficial, carnal substitutes. Continue Reading…


For there are so many, many layers of experience and knowledge laid before you. There are so many, many aspects of who I am that have not even been tapped yet. And still in your heart you presume to know me. You presume to understand me. You even presume to judge me. But as you continue to know me more and more you will find I am nothing like your childish ideas have lead you to believe. For though you do the best you can, you cannot fully grasp all I am, who I am, what I am. Continue Reading…
