The pressures you feel of this day are real, but also real is my comfort, strength, and guidance for you. So while you experience difficulty for sure, know I am with you, but also know I am guiding you and empowering you to persevere, and even to grow. For these pressures have not been given to stop you, or to delay you, but have been given to facilitate growth. So enter into your challenges with thanksgiving, knowing they are working a greater strength within you, you did not previously perceive was present. (1)
And all the while my fellowship is available to you, so you will know you are not alone. All the while I am making my joy, peace, and comfort freely and generously available to you, so you will not walk alone, and so you will not carry the heavy burdens. Accept my invitation and cast your burdens on to me, for I care for your greatly and desire to reveal this aspect of who I am to you. (2)
And in this days you will surely experience new things. You will surely experience the next stage of what has been set before you already. And though you have conceived of this in your mind, understand the reality of experience will be different than the reality of intellectual conception. Embrace the challenges you are facing this day, for they are awakening, preparing, strengthening, and empowering you, even though they do not feel like it in the moment. Embrace the differences and the surprises you did not anticipate, for in them you will encounter additional wisdom and value in the experience.
Know I am guiding you every step of the way. As you continue to encounter surprises and challenges, know I am showing you the path of growth, the path of advancement. I am guiding your steps, and illuminating my direction for you, so you will be able to advance, and do so with confidence. (3)
But also understand, my ways and my timing look very different than your ways and your timing. So when I speak be slow to discard what I have for you, simply because it looks different. Instead, acknowledge and embrace what I am saying, for as you continue to walk by faith and obedience, you will see the wisdom and beauty of what I have given you, and the direction I am taking you.
