Dear Child, I see it.
I see the thoughts and dreams and plans within you.
I see the ones you’re afraid to speak out loud.
The ones you’re afraid to act upon because you worry they are too great for you.
I know you’re afraid to invest too much in them.
Of course I see these dreams, for it is I that have placed those big ideas within you.
And it is I who will bring them to completion…
At the appropriate time.
Do not try to hide that greatness within you.
Talk to me about these dreams.
Ask me about them and I will answer you.
I will tell you how to get from here to there.
Sometimes by baby-steps,
And sometimes I will ask you to do something beyond your comfort zone.
Do not let fear of failure stop you from moving.
There will be failures along the way, but I am using them for your benefit.
Sometimes a step backwards is required in order to move forward in the right direction.
Don’t fear it.
Trust in my love for you.
Trust that my ways are best.
Trust that I know how to get you where you’re going.
The shortest road is not the best way.
Let me show you the more perfect path.
Walk with me.
Linger with me.
Talk to me.
Look to me.
I will show you when and how to move.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
