For I am putting within you a new song – a song of joy, a song of freedom, and song of hope. And this song will be a melody played to you again and again, in times of your victory, as well as your times of great need. Remember this song, for it is your song, and will be a song unique to you, a song like no other.
And this song will be so personal to you, and it will take a long time to craft. For the times of weeping will be necessary in order to surpass the limits of your present circumstances. The tears themselves are not necessary, but the path that produces tears is. The path that produces real, lasting change and transformation is littered with tears on every side. But don’t lose heart, for these tears are but temporary. As you see the fruits of your faithfulness begin to manifest in your life, the fear of the your own tears will diminish.
And the comfort you seek so desperately will fade as well, as you continue to seek me in all things. For my eyes are roaming throughout the Earth to find those whose hearts are surrendered to me. And I will life you up, and I will bring you out of the place of darkness, and lead you with confidence, boldness, and with great courage. And though the cost to follow is real, and the sacrifice required is real, the rewards are immeasurably greater.
And so know, there will be days of hardship before you, as you continue walk the path leading to the birthing of your new song. But this song, and this path you’re traveling in this life, will twist and turn, but remember you’re always free to choose. You’re always free to cooperate, or not. You’re free to follow, or not. It’s up to you to play along, or not. And so, while my spirit is with you to guide you, and help you, remember you are so free to choose your path as well.
So open your ears, open your eyes, open your heart and sing the new song. For the song of celebration will be your personal signature, your own personal fingerprint of your history in me.
