JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
Dear child, I’m sorry for your pain. It’s natural to want to be accepted by your family and peers, and I know firsthand how much it hurts to feel rejected and misunderstood.
But there’s a hidden gift in any situation in which your choices are not embraced by others: You have an opportunity to turn to your Father and Me for nourishment and approval. In doing so, you receive the food that endures to eternal life rather than that which perishes.
When you are relying on others for approval, you’re like a butterfly caught in a net: You turn this way and some disapprove; you turn that way and others scowl. You end up flying back and forth, exhausting yourself but getting nowhere.
Ask for My help and the Holy Spirit will show you the way out of the net into the clear, blue sky. He will be the wind under your wings as you explore with confidence. When you fly back to the net, you’ll be on the other side, freely offering love and compassion to your family instead of trapped and worrying you are a disappointment.
Do you have a few minutes to break free from what’s binding you now? Gather all the love, joy and gratitude your heart holds for Me, then send it to Me in prayer. Relax in our loving communion as the Holy Spirit sets your spirit free from hurt and fear. —Jesus to the Jews,
“How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?”
