As you enter in to my rest, and allow me to accomplish my work in your life, your mindset will gradually begin to change. You will see things differently than in days past, and this change will allow you to look into the future with greater clarity and accuracy. But as with many of the things I have put before you in the past, the practice of entering into my rest will force you to let go of some habits you have held on to. It will require you to abandon ideas and methods that are familiar to you, but are pointless, and even counterproductive. You will encounter challenges as you learn to walk in greater levels of faith, abandoning your comfort zone as you learn to let go of these things. (1)
I see where you are and I am more than prepared to meet you in every challenge you will ever face in your life. As you learn to let go of your striving and desire for control, trust I am with you, and know I will assist you in letting go.
There is so much freedom set before you, though it will appear to you as death. It will appear to be foolish, but in this perceived foolishness you will encounter the beauty of my wisdom. As you walk through the door I have opened before you, though it seems to be death and foolishness, understand this door will cause you to walk in life, and to walk in greater wisdom and enhanced beauty.

Even so, this walk will require you to move forward in faith believing, looking past what is seen to what is yet to be seen. Step forward, looking past what your eyes see, past what your heart feels, and past what your mind thinks. Follow my spirit in the path I have laid before you, and you will know me, love me, and learn of me. I will continue to pour my extravagant love upon you time and time again, day after day as we continue in this walk together. (3)
