Dear child, it’s a sad truth that some re­ject a re­la­tion­ship with Me. I wish it were not so, but many do choose the world over your Fa­ther’s king­dom. Un­for­tu­nately, many turn away and even hate Me for no good rea­son.

This re­jec­tion of Me ful­fills a scrip­tural prophecy and so is out­side of your power (or Mine) to change. So you must not hold your­self re­spon­si­ble. Do what you can to make your­self a bea­con of My light and give glory to your Fa­ther. Let the rest go.

Imag­ine your life with Me as liv­ing on the most beau­ti­ful of trop­i­cal is­lands: You feel My love as the warm ocean breezes, you taste My sweet­ness on your lips as you sip a trop­i­cal drink. You are per­pet­u­ally sur­rounded by the bright, light fra­grance of plen­ti­ful flow­ers. Of course, you want to send post­cards to those you love. You want to com­mu­ni­cate to them that if they could ex­pe­ri­ence what you ex­pe­ri­ence, they would want to choose life with Me for its warmth, its sweet­ness, its light. But the truth is: No one can de­scribe the beauty of My is­land… each needs to ex­pe­ri­ence Me for him- or her­self. Each one needs to taste and see that I am good.

Keep gen­tly en­cour­ag­ing your loved ones in words and through your own joy­ous­ness to meet Me in prayer—to send Me love and feel My love in re­turn. Let the rest go. —Je­sus to the dis­ci­ples,

John 15:18–19 NKJV

“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me be­fore it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own.”
