JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
Dear child, imagine a butterfly who was blind to the glory of her wings came to you whispering of her longing. She tells you that she’s eaten up by jealousy over the big, round body that her friend the bumblebee has. You would immediately see the wrongness of her desire: Gaining such a body would distort her into something ugly rather than the beautiful creature she is. The soul of the butterfly would be lost.
Indeed, if you gained the pieces you desire from other people’s lives that are not suited to your soul’s destiny, you’d create a similar kind of monster. Perhaps you’ve seen those who get one plastic surgery after another out of a desire to appear perfect? They end up looking monstrous as they attempt to override your Father’s creation. So, too, would you distort your own soul by adding worldly wins that don’t aid in your unique journey.
Each life is a perfect balance of easy and hard, beauty and pain, gifts and giving. Your Father has bestowed you with a soul that creates a whole life that can’t be reduced to this house or that career or this body.
Please come to Me now and allow Me to sweep away your feelings of lack. Worldly success is limited: My love is infinite. Send Me your loving gratitude and feel the Holy Spirit bring My response as He lifts your spirit. Rest in Me, allow the Spirit to refresh your spirit and know you’re beautiful just the way you are.
“For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul?” —Jesus to the disciples,
