Arise and shine!
It's a new day. A new year. A time to focus on the flame burning deep inside of you. A time to continue adjusting your thinking to Mine. A time to make room for the more.
Since the beginning of time, I have gone before you, preparing the way, planting seeds deep inside of you. Seeds full of promise that bear much fruit. The pain you've gone through as you walked your healing journey, the sacrifices you've made, the weed pulling, the pruning, the trimming of self-righteousness and pride ... haven't been for nothing. Its all been for something.
Everything you experience in life plays a part in preparing you for your journey and what is ahead. It doesn't defeat you; it refines you. It makes you more like Me as you give it all to Me ... piece by piece, layer by layer. As you surrender, My blood cleanses you. The fire purifies you. The deep waters call you into the deep places of the Spirit -- while My Word continues to go forth to help you grow into who I designed you to be.
Child, don't discount what you have been through. It has developed character in you. It has strengthened your limbs to support the weight of My glory within you ... and the weight of the fruit I'm bringing forth through you.
Arise and shine. It's time.
It's time for the more.
All My Love, Jesus
