Simple Grace - - Mood Index -

Dear child, I love your en­thu­si­asm to try new things to im­prove your­self and your home. But ea­ger­ness with­out steady di­rec­tion can end up yield­ing noth­ing but a great deal of un­fin­ished busi­ness.

Imag­ine your­self as child, wish­ing to fly a kite. Yes, you can get try to run this way or try to run that way, but with­out a gust of wind, your kite won’t climb to the sky.

Your spirit is not so dif­fer­ent: You can lead it this way and that, but what it re­ally needs is a strong lift from the Holy Spirit to strengthen it in the di­rec­tion of your Fa­ther’s will. It’s only then that your spirit will rise strongly and ac­com­plish some­thing of merit.

When you find your­self leav­ing things half-fin­ished, it’s a sign that you’ve be­come a bit spir­i­tu­ally sleepy… you need to wake up to your need of di­rec­tion and guid­ance from your Fa­ther and re­ceive it via the Spirit.

Do you have five min­utes now? If so, please find a com­fort­able and pri­vate place to sit and try to let go of your thoughts—just let each worry drift by like a kite fly­ing into and then out of view. Kin­dle the love and joy­ous feel­ings you have to­ward Me and feel them soar­ing up to reach My heart. Feel My re­sponse as the Spirit lifts your spirit.

Do you feel a beau­ti­ful rush? That’s the Spirit laden with My love and your Fa­ther’s will. Wake up to what the Spirit brings and you’ll find that you only start what it’s your Fa­ther’s will for you to fin­ish. —Je­sus to the dis­ci­ples,

Luke 12:37

“Blessed are those ser­vants whom the master finds awake when he comes.”
