My Daughter ~ No Strings Attached
After enjoying 4 1/2 years of retirement, I was called back in to the office. I was confused as I thought I was “on track” with my desires and even His calling for these last years of my life. I had to make a decision and I did. I chose to look at this as His assignment. Somehow, someway, I knew I could do this with His help. As I journaled my heart, this is what the Lord spoke to me:
Daughter, Daughter, Daughter,
You are right where I want you, doing the right things in a right way. Peace is always your portion from Me, but you have to reach for it. It’s as close to you as can be….it’s in your heart. It’s in your spirit. Draw deep from the well inside of you. My Spirit — My Word — My life is in you. Just take your cup and dip it in. I’ll bring you the refreshing you need.
Even though I Am Perfection, the world you live in and the people in it are not. That’s why Grace is so important. Much grace is yours if you apprehend it, call for it. Draw it to you. Make a claim for it. It will transform any situation, any frustration, any need, any longing, any desire.
It’s what I give to You freely. No strings attached. You don’t have to do anything to earn it. It’s yours! Grace transforms. It lifts, it breaks open, it disengages from the darkness.
I am your Shield, your Protector, your Provider, your Love, and Father. All good things come from Me. And I am more powerful than any bad thing, person, circumstance or trial. All that I have is yours. Freely I give it to you. No strings attached. You don’t have to earn it.
Draw from Me. Draw from My love. Draw from my heart.
I hear you, Mary. I see you, Mary. You are precious in My sight. Continue to abide in Me. Lean upon My breast. Receive My comfort. Receive My love. Receive My direction and plans for you. No more sadness or discouragement. I love your quiet spirit as much as your fiery spirit. Look at your grandchildren and see yourself. Just as you smile when you watch them. I smile when I watch you. My eyes always see you. My ears always hear you. My arms are always waiting for you. You are My dearest child. You are a woman of grace in My eyes.
