For my plans to see you prosper are very different than the plans you have for yourself, to see yourself prosper. For even the very standard of prosperity is very different. Your standard and my standard of prosperity do not match. And while you would put yourself on a certain path, with a certain outcome, my plans for you will take you down a very different path, with a very different outcome.
So trust in my leadership. Trust in my timing in all things. For your heart oftentimes desires the right things, but does so impatiently. For one of the key issues within your heart is to wait. And surely, this impatience is one of the very key issues we will confront together. And know, I am not angry or against you in the times you are still learning. Know my hand is not against you though you make mistakes. So as we confront these issues together, run to me. For I will not turn you away. I will not reject you. I will not be harsh with you as we face these issues of your heart.
I will surround you with my love and my mercy, and you will become enamored with my goodness as I display it to you. You will become so inebriated with my presence and my goodness that all your hurts, disappointments, and fears will melt away, and quickly forgotten. For though those things are real, they are small. They are small in comparison to the greatness of who I am, and all I will do in your life.
So as my plans continue to unfold in your life, and the confusion continues to linger, and the hurts mount up, know and trust all I have in store for you. And as the issues of your heart become bare, and you feel overwhelmed with your humanity, know I have never been overwhelmed. I have never wavered. I have never been afraid of your faults or mistakes or your circumstances. So remember me, and remember my plans for you. And you will lose yourself in my heart for you, and my goodness for you. For surely I am so much greater than all these things.
