The tug on your heart is my spirit. Even though at times this tug feels awkward and at times it feels unrelenting, this is the move of my spirit calling out to you. I desire to know you and reveal myself to you, make myself close to you. I am calling you closer to my heart, closer to my spirit, closer to my ways. For I know the most personal details of your life. I see where you are where you are going, and it is my plan to draw you closer to me still. (1)
In our closeness you will know me and you will experience joy and satisfaction. All my ways are good, and all my plans for you are good. All the things I have in store for you are good, though they may not always seem this way in your initial perception. Some of the good things I have in store for you will require work on your part. Some will require a bit of sacrifice and growing, a bit of sweating and a bit of waiting. (2)
But know in all these things, I am with you and you are never alone. Know I am not punishing you, but preparing you through these events, and through these circumstances. I am refining you, and perfecting you so your joy will be complete, for there is much joy and much satisfaction in store for you in the days ahead, as you continue to come closer to my heart. As you continue to come closer, and continue to know me more and more, day by day, your expectations will change. As a result you will see your future differently than you do now. You will see possibilities differently than you do now. You will see timelines, events, and circumstances very differently than you see them now. (3)
Your perspective will change. The prescription of your glasses will change, and you will have a greater focus and greater understanding of where you are, what I am doing, and where you are going. With this new perspective you will have greater understanding how everything will turn out for you.
As you continue to grow, and as your expectations continue to be reset, your growth will be a light to others. As you continue to live honestly, with integrity, others will see the light and truth within you. You will be agents to spread hope and truth, for this world is so very hungry for hope. This world is so very hungry for truth, and it is my desire to bring both hope and truth to those in need. (4)
As you continue to say yes to me, and yes to my spirit, know I will use you to affect and influence the lives of others. You will be a big blessing to them as you continue to spread hope and truth where ever you go.
