Embrace your circumstances with the gusto you expressed when you first came to know Me. I know it is difficult, as time wanes, the seasons change and yet you do not see the fruit of your labors, but your service to Me must be fervent–especially in prayer.
My people, you do not pray enough, and you hesitate even to come before My Throne of Grace. My countenance is made even more brilliant by the light of My saints gathered around Me. Much as the facets of a finely cut gem make it to shine all the greater by catching light and reflecting it back, so you shall catch My light and refract it back upon Me as you fellowship with Me.
I am the light of the world and those who follow that light shall also become as light–
- ever increasing
- ever learning
- ever shining
As the light of the noonday, so shall those of the world be drawn unto you and thus be drawn unto Me. My children do not lose heart, but be strengthened with the knowledge that the time is soon and yet to be when we shall know each other face to face.
And ever shall we remain!
