I sat and watched the rain quietly fall in unison with the leaves this evening, the wind seemed to be carrying them both gently through the air. I listened to the birds sing their chorus while my wind chimes carried their own melody through the breeze. I still had the nightmare on my mind from earlier in the week, so much weighing heavy on my heart. Poppa, are some people just evil? Do I try so hard for nothing? You already know the answer you seek. It doesn’t really matter anyways because what you do, you do for Me. If not one thing comes from it on this earth, do not be discouraged, do not be disheartened; the things of this world aren’t what you seek after anyways. Your true reward is in heaven. I see everything, the just and unjust. Nothing goes unseen. Just rewards will always be given in due time, in due season.
The leaves peacefully falling, the rain seemingly cleaning the atmosphere. “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Psalm 42:11 The birds chirping away. “Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.” Psalm 43:5
Daughter, less of you and more of Me. “For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14” John 3:30 Praise Me daughter, rise up, draw to Me. I didn’t say it would be easy. It’s time to pull away from the world and retreat unto Me. I’m grinding, refining, molding, smoothing, moving you into position… all for such a time as this. Will you listen as Esther did or will run and cower in fear? “
I don’t know exactly what God has in store for my “such a time as this” but I’m not about to “cower.” No, I fully want whatever He has for me. So, I’m drawing closer to Him. I’m excited to see what He has in store for me. Any fear in me has to go. The devil is a liar and the power within me is greater than any lie He tries to put in my head. I’m excited for this new path I’m on, it’s leading right into my destiny. Thank you so much for taking this path with me. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
