Lord, why must I struggle? Everything is so hard for me and it doesn’t seem to be getting any easier.
I am here for you my child. Do not stumble around in the dark, let my light lead you. Let me help you. All you need to do is reach out to me.
You are trying so hard to control things that are not within your power to change. You cannot do it alone but I am here to help you. Open your arms to me and let me in.
When you try to control everything you are not giving me a chance to help. You must have patience and trust. Trust in me my child, I will not let you down.
One of the biggest problems my children have is trusting in me fully. If things do not happen right away they try to fix them on their own again. You cannot say, ‘Lord help me’ and not trust that I will help. If there is no trust, there can be no true change.
It is the same with your emotions and problems. You cannot hand them over to me and then pull them back again. I know it is difficult, children but some changes take time. Do not sit in your chairs worrying about things you cannot control. Things will unfold as they are meant to be.
You may be struggling for a reason. Perhaps your strength in your struggle is a light for others to not give up. The struggle itself makes you stronger and can bring you closer to me but you have to open your hearts for that to happen. You have to let the light in.
If you are unsure, worried, or struggling, pray and talk to me. I am always at your side listening and ready to help you. You can tell me anything so go ahead and unburden yourselves…I am listening.
Others are struggling too and my earthly shepherds are there to assist. There are groups, and people who have lived what you are living and who have known your struggles. They are there for you. Reach out to them, look for their light to shine and when it does do not close the door and remain stuck where you are. Be brave my child and walk towards help.
Let my light come to you and cast away the shadows. My light will show you the way. Look inside, it is there, already within you. Draw from it, use it and let it guide you. It is what helps you know right from wrong but you must decide to follow the light and choose good or bad every time.
I do not want you to struggle children. You are children of the light, my light, let my light lead you out of the darkness.
