If you could have anything in the world what would it be?
Seriously, think about it. What do you want? I know it’s a simple question. But, for most of My kids, it’s not so simple. There’s so many things that hinder them from receiving the desires of their heart.
Once upon a time, you were a big dreamer. All kids are.
But somewhere along the way, you got disillusioned. Things didn’t work out the way you hoped they would. People disappointed you. They rejected you and caused you pain. Then, without even realizing it, you lowered your expectations and stopped expecting so much. But, what was most hurtful was how it affected the way you see yourself.
It was a gradual process, like the waves that slowly eat away at the shoreline.
But nonetheless, you began to believe that it was better, even more responsible, to expect less. The pain of disappointment was to be avoided at all costs. Thoughts like, “maybe I’m not cut out for this,” and “maybe I misheard God” began to fill your head. Faith was replaced with doubt. Love was replaced by fear.
But child, this is not the way of champions. This is not who I created you to be. Failure doesn’t define you. I do!
Since when do champions quit? So what if you had a bad day, a bad month, even a whole decade. I’m not trying to be insensitive. I just recognize how distorted time is on earth in comparison with eternity. Plus, what does your past, even yesterday’s failures, have to do with who you are in Me? Tomorrow is a new day. How about you bring disappointment and disillusionment to Me? I know a secret that makes them evaporate.
The blood of My Son washes yesterdays away. It’s so powerful it will even make the pain of failure, rejection, and disappointment disappear.
So come to Me child and let Me wipe the slate clean. Let Me heal your heart and set you free. Let Me clear away hindrances and restore your vision. Let me fill your heart with hope and give you My definition of what true success looks like.
I want to fulfill the desires of your heart. I’m the One that put them there in the first place.
