Watch if you become weary, that you don’t isolate yourself from My Body. I’ve created you to belong and you are a necessary part of My church.  I know that you have felt rejected and  like you are not needed. But I have placed you and I have purpose for you. My purpose may not be understood or confirmed by others. But you are My Beloved and are of those who walk by faith and not by sight. You have been brought into My Family for My purposes to be accomplished through you. The weaknesses of others will strengthen your weaknesses. Lean into Me and not on your own understanding and trust that I am directing your path. I will continue the good work I have begun in you, until its completion. ~God

Ephesians 4:15-16 But speaking the truth in love, let us grow in every way into Him who is the head-Christ. From Him the whole body, fitted and knit together by every supporting ligament, promotes the growth of the body for building up itself in love by the proper working of each individual part.

You are the one who I have gifted. You are the one who knows Me and carries My Spirit. I want you to realize that You are my gift to others. You have much to offer and are entirely valuable to Me. I have thought of You always. You are always on My mind. My eyes are always on you. I know your thoughts even before you think them.  I have watched you look to others to see what they can offer you. To see how they can make you better or more fulfilled. But you won’t find that in anyone, you are way beyond that. You were made for Me and I have given you abundantly of Myself.  I want you to change your perspective about others and begin to look at how you can share what I’ve put in you with them.  I want you to do this as you look to your friends and also My church. They will not fill you. They will never be able to do this because I intended you to come to Me for that.   I want you to surrender the idea of  “doing it your way..” Because I have plans to give you a hope and a future. Be still and know Me. Will you trust Me?

Colossians 2:9 For the entire fullness of God’s nature dwells bodily in Christ,  and you have been filled by Him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the Lord’s work, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

I have often felt your hurt, from disappointments where you have expected things and people fail you.  But I have also seen their desire to love you. The thing that has come between you is your expectations. But I want you to put your hope in Me, and to be able to love regardless. I am teaching you to let your expectations be known and agreed upon, and even then you will often be let down by people. I desire for you to be quick to listen, slow to speak and especially slow to become angry. How can you love your enemies, if you can’t love your friends?  Every person and thing will disappoint you. I have made you in such a way, that only I can satisfy you. Don’t be under obligation, but be under My direction, and love as I have loved you. Trust in Me with all your heart and lean not on what you think should be. Acknowledge Me and I will straighten and direct your path.

Psalm 62:5 For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from Him.

Romans 13:8 Do not owe anyone anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
