God, I want you fully in my life, but I don’t know how to do it.
Open your heart to me, my child, fully and freely. I am here, waiting, waiting, for you to let me in and to accept me completely.
Many are afraid to let me in because they would need to let go of who they are in that moment. It is easy to say I believe and give myself to you, but you must fully open your heart for me to enter.
You cannot pay lip service and say I am yours only in your time of need. Likewise, you cannot accept without opening up your heart. Just as you open your hands to receive a gift, so must you open your heart to receive me.
Many believe I do not answer or come when they call, but I do, in my way, not yours. To receive my gift, you must look with your spirit. Then will you recognize me. This must be done freely and without condition, which is why I have given you free will so that you may choose.
You can see which of my children have, and are, embracing me fully. They shine. My love flows from their hearts, their eyes and through their smiles. You can see me in their actions and the way in which they live.
So, too can you see those who don’t embrace me. Those whose eyes are guarded and demeanour closed off and withdrawn. They are angry and full of hate, the greatest directed at themselves, though you may not see that. I watch and wait until they are ready, but I am there when they are.
When you open your heart to me, I will shield you. Darkness may be drawn to you because your light becomes stronger, but you will have the strength you need to deal with it. Some may also try to dissuade you, say you are crazy or foolish. Those are the ones who have not fully embraced my love.
If you don’t feel my presence or see my gifts, you must ask yourself if you have fully bared your heart to me. Not just your sorrows and needs, but all of you. Every little piece that makes you who you are.
Just as I know you, I also know if you have come freely and fully, offering your heart to me. When you have, I am there, and the joy you know will outweigh all the sorrows.
You will come to understand that life, though it seems long, is fleeting and we will be united again. We are never truly apart. I am with you always, even when you can’t feel me.
If you want me fully in your life, my child, I will be there. All you need do is open your heart to me.
