Keep your eyes on my loving gaze towards you my beloved child. I am ever for you in my constant faithful delight and love over you. Though there are people around you with varying opinions concerning you. These may be people you respect, close friends you’ve endured difficult seasons with, or they may even be your parents, the opinion that matters most, is mine.
I only highlight two to three things I want to work on with you each season. I give you the grace through my presence to mature and bring you to a greater place of freedom in these areas. You are not alone.
Though there maybe conflicting opinions, perhaps even attacks from others I am inviting you to put your hands to the plow and not look back. Sometimes I help end relationships in your life that are not beneficial to you in the long run. Relationships that you can’t even see that are hindering your growth towards me rather than helping.
Though it’s difficult, and your heart aches, come and gaze into my eyes and see my love for you. Come close and let me comfort you. I am your compassionate High Priest.
- Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd. -John 10:7-16
- “But Jesus said to him, ‘No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.’” -Luke 9:62
- “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.” -2 Corinthians 1:3-5
