God, I don’t know where to turn; please help me.
Come to me, oh my child and lay your burdens down. They are heavy, and I can carry them for you. Trust me to hold them until you are strong enough to do so.
Turn towards the light and away from the darkness. In your indecision, turn, turn to me. I have laid a path for you to follow, one made of love, light, kindness and compassion. Look through the eyes of your spirit and turn, turn into the light.
I know your heart, child, but you must offer it freely and fully to me, without hesitation or reservation. It is then that you can feel me, for you have willed it so.
When you hesitate or question if I can, or will, help you, that is when you begin to fade and wander away from the light; becoming confused and unsure, like a lost child. You must believe fully and wholly, trusting me to do what is best for you.
It is like putting only one foot in a warm pool to test the waters to see how it feels. You can never enjoy the waters if you don’t submerge yourself and relax in them. Submerse yourself and relax into the spirit.
There is such a joy and peace to be had if only you would allow it. Instead, my children resist and doubt. They ask, without believing in my response, afraid to hope.
When you stray, there is always a path laid that leads you back to me. Turn and walk, run and come to me. Bare open your sins so that you can be washed clean, renewed in the spirit and love.
Remain faithfully in the light and let it shine, not only for you but for others. You have all you need to live in love and happiness. I have given you strength and skill beyond measure, and when it is used for the good of others, you will flourish.
I know you hear the enemy’s calls. Turn away and close your ears to him. He means only to turn you from me, luring you away with false promises and empty happiness. Close your ears to him and turn your gaze towards the light.
When you don’t know what to do or which way to turn, turn to me. Talk to me. Pray, and I will hear you and be with you. I am connected to you through the spirit, my spirit that resides in you.
With your question today, you have pulled me to you, bringing me into your presence as you are in mine. That is a start. Tell me your problems and challenges. Share with me your dreams and fears. I listen and respond.
Know, my child, that I am with you always, loving and guiding you. Turn, open your arms and heart wide, and come to me.
