Becoming Like Little Children

There are so many adventures set before you, many of which have not yet been disclosed to you. While you feel lost and confused at times, remember I am not, never have been, and never will be. While you feel a fog before you, clouding your vision, inhibiting your perspective, remember my vision is not clouded, never has been, and never will be. There are many things you know and many things you see, but even still there is more for you, much of which has not yet been disclosed to you. There is so much more before you, you do not see, but I do, and always have, and always will. (1)

Many of you tend to focus on hurts, questions, and obstacles, as you ask “why is this here?”, or “how long will this last?”, or “am I doing something wrong?”. From my perspective all these things are working out, according to not only my plan, but also my timing, so trust in my plans for you. I am encouraging you to let go of yourself, and to let go of your right to self-govern. Instead become like little children. Release your concerns, fears, and questions, and simply come to me in faith and assurance, knowing I have all these things, and those things which have not yet been disclosed, already taken care of. (2)

Come to me, and I will take care of you, for I am a good shepherd. I will lead you to all the places your heart desires, for it is my will to bring you to the place of satisfaction and fulfillment. These are the places you will not only arrive, but will continue to abide within, as you continue to follow me in all your ways, and in all you days. Although the path we will take will be different than the path you would choose for yourself, trust in the leadership of my hand, and remember I will bring you to the green pastures, so you may lie down beside the still waters. Your soul will rejoice, relax, and be content, as we will relax and celebrate in our love together. (3)

All these things will happen over the course of time as you surrender yourself to me, follow me, and allow my leadership to guide and direct you day by day, step by step. As you let go of questions which do not serve you, but only confuse you and hinder you, you will begin to walk in more joy, with a light burden and easy yoke. There are many things you do not see, and there are many things you do not have the answer to just yet, so trust in me for all these things, and you will not be disappointed. (4)

Do not continue to spend energy focusing on these little things – the things you cannot control or change anyway. Do not spend your emotions dwelling on such obstacles, for it will only distraction and prove to be a fruitless and wasteful endeavor again and again. Over time putting your attention onto such matters will rob your heart of enthusiasm and motivation, and will begin to weigh you down from within the world of what is seen. These things are but a distraction to the greater things set before you, so put them away. Though they are real, put them away from your focus, put them away from your concern, and know I am aware of them and I have all these little things taken care of already. (5)

Let go of your hurts, fears, and worries, and allow yourself to be little children as you come away with me. Together we will walk in the joy I have for you, regardless of your circumstances. We will drink from the water that brings no sorrow, regardless of your circumstances. We will share the precious moments together and enjoy the intimacy of our company together, regardless of your circumstances. (6)
