I AM Everything You Need

It's been a busy summer, though I've been writing a little here and there.  Here are three excerpts I edited recently from my WIP (Work In Progress).

 “Casting all your cares on Him, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

As in the days of long ago, there are many things for you to deal with, but only one way to handle them and not be burdened. Place ALL your concerns in My Hands. Casting involves action and it takes practice, so don’t lose heart. Trust Me with all you plans and be at peace. I do not expect you to sit idly by, for there is much to do. However, when you trust Me, you will have the wisdom to know what to do and when to do it. Peace will follow. All else is striving after wind. Anxiety causes you to make wrong decisions. When you are at peace, you can hear My voice even in times of silence, for My Word will speak to you. Your life can be imbued with peace and you will then make wise decisions. The nectar of peace will attract the hummingbirds of this world. You will feed them by just being who you are and abiding in Me.

“Oh God you are my God. Early will I seek you, my soul thirsts for you in a dry and thirsty land” (Psalm 63:1).

            Are you thirsty for Me? If not, from what fount are you drinking?  Only two wells exist. You either quench your thirst from My crystal clear waters or you drink from the polluted ones of this earth. Though they may appear lush and green, they quickly turn rancid and disease filled. The world’s water will become sand in your mouth. It will cause you to be even thirstier than you were before. Eventually, it will kill your spirit. A man can live longer without food than water. As it is true in the natural, so it is true in the spirit. I am the living water. Only I can quench the thirst of your spirit, but only you can make the choice to drink from My well. All else will leave you dulled and groggy. Come thirsty to Me, and I will satisfy your needs more than you ever imagined.

I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness,
but have the light of life” (John 8:12).
            I call you to be light bearers. You need not conjure up the light yourself as the mystics attempted to do. All you need to do is surrender to Me, and My light will shine through. Take the opportunity while it is still day, as the Spirit calls to surrender. Walk in the way of the light, which may require a difficult choice. Yet I Am here to help you with My grace. Do as My Son did, and you will not walk in darkness. But remember He walked in the desert, was tempted by the devil, rejected by man, suffered for truth, healed the sick, fed the hungry and was raised up into heaven. Walking in the light is not often easy, though it has eternal rewards. Following Me comes naturally to those who know Me, and have My nature living in them.
