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.

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.

I see your striving and worry and strategic planning to fix what you don’t even understand. My peace is better than your understanding. My peace works faster than your planning and striving. I have watched confusion come and grip your mind and I have heard your prayer for peace. I say to you: I love you just the way you are. Your justification is not your responsibility. I am at work in you. I work at My Own pace. I don’t need to hurry. I want you to set aside worry and fears and take in a deep breath of trust in Me. I know you are not perfect and have cracks that still need mending. They do not frighten or turn me away from you. Your weaknesses draw Me closer to you. I delight to show Myself strong for you. My grace is enough for you. Take My grace and know that I AM peace that passes all understanding.

Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Romans 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
