A Letter From the Father…
I am rising up a new spirit in you. One that shall put all false idols to the test. Whom should dare stand up to you with My Spirit dwelling inside of you? I tell you the truth, all who come by my authority are my chosen ones. Release to me any fear that you are holding onto. For I am bringing you into a new season of your life. A season of learning and discipline, but also joy and laughter. You will surely learn much, and great wisdom and knowledge will be given to you. You must however, trust me through it all. I will never leave you, nor will I ever forsake you. I will never lead you in uncharted territory, for I always go before you. I make a way when others say you cannot enter.
Lay all of your plans to the side and fully surrender to mine. You are my chosen one, my beloved. Whom shall try to harm you? For my protection has been placed upon you and it is there that I will forever rest. Take this scroll and eat this scroll so my words can grow rich inside of you. As nutrients feed your earthly body, so do my words feed your soul.
Press on to the good things I have told you about. Do not lay dorment at the enemy’s feet! Rise up and take off your garment of suffering for the garment of praise! Beautiful are my children who speak my Word AND live by it. So many do one but not the other. This does no good, for my people need to see action. With every word you speak, walk out in confidence to share my good news with the world.
Present to me your times of trouble and I shall always deliver you from the evil that so often lurks. Come to my resting place and I shall fill your voids to full. Push past regret and do not conform to the ways of this world. For I came to set you free, so free you shall live! Do not try to pick apart or dissect my words to you, my child. I mean what I say and my words never show up as void. Surely I mean EXACTLY what I say to you. No more, no less. You are my love and I truly cherish the time we spend in fellowship and intimacy.
Remember this one thing in the days to come; I am eternally with you. To the very end of the age, there I shall be. You are never alone. You are never walking in solitude. Place your ever wavering faith in the One who never wavers in the least. I stand with you, I walk beside you, I cover your heart with my hand, and I whisper my promises in your ear. Take your eyes off of the things that cause you to stumble, and instead look to me for your vision. For your gaze captures my heart. Just one glance leaves me abundantly eager for your love. Don’t you see? I am all you will ever need my beloved. Cherish the things of my heart and it is my very heart that you obtain. Do not worry, do not waver, do not fear, just look to me. Rest…and just look to me.

A paradox. After turning the machine on, its only function is to turn itself off.
this is disturbing
I want one
There’s all these wonderful treasure of knowledge and wisdom to be found in God but knowledge is power and with power comes great responsibility (Thanks Uncle Ben) but then responsibility is like a burden and a burden is a weight which can hold you down and bring struggle to you, almost like a captivative force keeping you in bondage but doesn’t knowledge lead to the truth? If the truth sets you free, can it be a burden? Is that subjective? Does it matter only to those who care? Does God want us to know of this burden? Is the whole truth really what we need?
WHY AM I THINKING OF THESE THINNNGGSS AGGGHH DFJASDLKFJASDFKLJA THIS IS WHAT I GET FOR PRAYING TO BE SMART AND INTELLIGENT AND AND UUGGHHHH my freaking brain.
