JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
Dear child, thank you for reaching out to others in kindness and compassion. You bring Me much joy when you do My loving work. That’s why I want you to experience a fullness of joy in return: Not only does it lift your spirit, it lifts others’ spirits in ways far greater than you know.
Have you ever watched a bee collecting pollen? As it travels from flower to flower, some of the pollen it picks up from one plant is passed along to the next. From those tiny grains of pollen from just one plant, many plants can bear new seeds—and from those seeds, new plants and flowers grow.
Your spirit works in much the same way: The joy you experience is passed on and on, spreading in ways that can’t be seen but that you and others can feel. No joyful spirit is selfish; it never takes anything away from others. Each contributes something priceless that keeps your Father’s garden expanding, growing and ever in bloom.
As for your sorrow that others suffer, I feel it too. It’s one reason I ask you to continually come to Me in prayer. When we commune together with the Holy Spirit’s help, you shift the burden to Me. I can shoulder the pain of the world for you, take away your sadness and refill your spirit with love, peace and joy. Come to Me now in silent prayer and let Me fill your spirit to overflowing.
“‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’”
