Breathe deeply and know that you are all so tenderly loved. God loves all of you dear ones, each and every one without exception. God loves you always and constantly, whether or not you are in a good frame of mind, whether or not you are proud of your life, whether or not you even believe in Him. God understands that every soul is on a quest to dissolve the illusion that they are separate from their source, and so like a loving parent, He waits for your to realize His love within your own heart, and assists you in seeing that spark in others.
Your world, dear ones, is riddled with fears: fears about viruses and fears of vaccines; fears of having too little and fears of being powerful; fears about healthcare; fears about the economy; fears about whether or not you can take care of your children, and the list goes on. Dear ones, stop, breathe, and remember you are loved. God is the source of all health and well being. God is the source of your abundance no matter who gives you the paycheck. God is your greatest caretaker. Your children were His children first and He loves them in a way that is incomprehensible to the human mind.
We are so sad when we see you struggling and trying to solve your life’s problems all by yourselves, for God and your angels patiently wait to be enlisted in your service. You cannot order God and tell Him how to manage your life. You can instead drop into your hearts, and find what is already in there, for this is the truth He longs to serve. You can say “Dear God I am exhausted and I need your help in finding fulfilling work.” “God I am wits end as to how to support my children. Give me peace in my heart and show me what I can do for them, and where I need to surrender.” “God I am afraid that I cannot pay my bills or that I am going to lose my house. Give me peace of mind and heart. If it is your will that I pay them, guide me. If I am to learn by losing something, then help me understand the lessons and go through my changes with grace.” “God I so desperately want to create change in my life. Guide me and grant me patience while the changes unfold.”
These prayers, dear ones, the prayers that simply admit what is in your heart and ask for assistance, both in changing your outer lives, but also more importantly in learning the lessons within each situation – these prayers are answered in perfect timing. Ordering God about – throwing tantrums, begging, pleading, bargaining – these behaviors, although perfectly human are a different kind of prayer because in a way you are saying, “God I want this but I don’t believe you will give it to me and I’m mad. I don’t believe you care about me, so I will beg. I don’t believe I am worthy of your love and attention, so I will bargain.” Not only are these behaviors unnecessary, but in a way they negate the energy you are sending out into the universe. They say, “God fix my life” and in the same breath “I do not believe you will or I am not sure I am worthy.” You water down and negate your own prayers with these behaviors. Stand up tall and pray with your whole heart, having confidence that although you may have lessons to learn, God DOES care. You ARE worthy. You will be guided with tenderness and love through the changes you experience if you can embrace the way the universe works.
God is not cruel dear ones. He could come in, and in a heartbeat, fix your lives, and yet He does not always do this because earth is a school. When you are at home in heaven, things are different. But how much would a child learn if the parent sheltered them, prevented them from ever experiencing hardship, paved their path with gold, did their homework, and didn’t allow them to develop their own strength? Behaviors like this enable dependency and prevent one from finding their own strength, talents, and skills. Behaviors like this are not what God is all about. God is about helping you find HIS divine light within your own hearts – helping you learn that you are are not dependent children, but rather magnificent beings, made in His image and likeness.
There are times when you will experience deep challenge. There are times of loss, fear, and sometimes even suffering. But you can weather these times ever more gracefully if you stand up tall, ask to be shown the lessons, ask for what you truly want, and ask for the grace to know when to act and what to do. Then surrender, wait for guidance, and act when the inspirations occur. In this way you create a dance with God that acknowledges HIs true nature and serves in assisting you back into the flow of Divine Grace.
