You have heard it said, follow your heart’s desire. But I say to you, follow the one who gave you that desire. Follow the author of your life. Follow the author of your faith. Follow the one who loves you and has given his life for you. Follow me all you who are tired, weary, depressed, hopeless, broken, and down trodden. Follow me and I will give you rest (1).
I will give you the water you need. I will give you the food you need. I will give you hope, inspiration, strength and healing. I will be your strength to move you forward and sustain you. I will be your tower and shelter to save you from the storm. I will be your leader, your devoted shepherd, the faithful lover of your soul (2).
For I have your very best interests in mind. I have the very best, most righteous, most fulfilling plans for your life. Everything I do is motivated by my great love for you. So keep things simple, and do not overcomplicate the matters at hand. Look to me, the originator, the innovator, the articulator, the generator of all you want and need. Come to me and I will give you rest.
