JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
Dear child, I realize that it may seem that you live in a world of limited resources, and seeing others get something can make you anxious that there’s less available to you. The problem with this perspective is that it leaves you feeling like a squirrel who’s competing for nuts: You’re never assured of having enough.
When you head off to collect more, you’re plagued by the fear that other squirrels could be sneaking in to steal the ones you’ve got.
Your Father’s kingdom works differently: There’s always more than enough spiritual food for everyone. The more who ask, the more will be freely provided. When you humble yourself in recognizing your need and then open your heart to receive what’s given, you can be assured of always feeling filled with love, joy and peace. And neither time nor your neighbor can take what you receive from your Father and Me.
Are you ready to be filled with joy right now? Summon the loving gratitude you feel for Me, then imagine yourself extending your arms and opening your hands to offer it up. As your fingers unfold, the Holy Spirit will lift away the nut of envy you’ve been clutching and replace it with My loving fruit. Whatever you require—a peach of peace, an apple of strength, a cluster of joyful berries—it’s there. Take a bite, then another. Do you feel your heart warm as its nourishing juice flows through you? Good! There is always and already enough.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
