LISTEN TO ME
Effective immediately, please be aware that there are changes YOU need
to make in YOUR life. These changes need to be completed in order that
I may fulfill My promises to you to grant you peace, joy and happiness
in this life. I apologize for any inconvenience, but after all that I
am doing, this seems very little to ask of you. I know, I already gave
you the 10 Commandments. Keep them. But follow these guidelines, also:
1. QUIT WORRYING
Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry. Have you
forgotten that I am here to take all your burdens and carry them for
you? Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little thing that comes
2. PUT IT ON THE LIST
Something needs to be done or taken care of. Put it on the list. No,
not YOUR list. Put it on MY to-do-list. Let ME be the one to take care
of the problem. I can’t help you until you turn it over to Me. And
although My to-do-list is long, I am after all… God. I can take care
of anything you put into My hands. In fact, if the truth were ever
really known, I take care of a lot of things for you that you never
3. TRUST ME
Once you’ve given your burdens to Me, quit trying to take them back.
Trust in Me. Have the faith that I will take care of all your needs.
YOUR problems and your trials. Problems with the kids? Put them on My
list. Problem with finances? Put it on My list. Problems with your
emotional roller coaster? For My sake, put it on My list. I want to
help you. All you have to do is ask.
4. LEAVE IT ALONE
Don’t wake up one morning and say, “Well, I’m feeling much stronger
now, I think I can handle it from here.” Why do you think you are
feeling stronger now? It’s simple. You gave Me your burdens and I’m
taking care of them. I also renew your strength and cover you in my
peace. Don’t you know that if I
give you these problems back, you will be right back where you
started? Leave them with Me and forget about them. Just let Me do my
5. TALK TO ME
I want you to forget a lot of things. Forget what was making you
crazy. Forget the worry and the fretting because you know I’m in
control. But there’s one thing I pray you never forget. Please, don’t
forget to talk to Me – OFTEN! I love YOU! I want to hear your voice. I
want you to include Me in on the things going on in your life. I want
to hear you talk about your friends and family. Prayer is simply you
having a conversation with Me. I want to be your dearest friend.
6. HAVE FAITH
I see a lot of things from up here that you can’t see from where you
are. Have faith in Me that I know what I’m doing. Trust Me; you
wouldn’t want the view from My eyes. I will continue to care for you,
watch over you, and meet your needs. You only have to trust Me.
Although I have a much bigger task
than you, it seems as if you have so much trouble just doing your
simple part. How hard can trust be?
You were taught to share when you were only two years old. When did
you forget? That rule still applies. Share with those who are less
fortunate than you. Share your joy with those who need encouragement.
Share your laughter with those who haven’t heard any in such a long
time. Share your
tears with those who have forgotten how to cry. Share your faith with
those who have none.
8. BE PATIENT
I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many
diverse experiences. You grow from a child to an adult, have children,
change jobs many times, learn many trades, travel to so many places,
meet thousands of people, and experience so much. How can you be so
impatient then when it
takes Me a little longer than you expect to handle something on My to-
do-list? Trust in My timing, for My timing is perfect. Just because I
created the entire universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should
always rush, rush, rush.
9. BE KIND
Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you. They
may not dress like you, or talk like you, or live the same way you do,
but I still love you all. Please try to get along, for My sake. I
created each of you different in some way. It would be too boring if
you were all identical. Please, know I love each of your differences.
10. LOVE YOURSELF
As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself? You were created
by me for one reason only — to be loved, and to love in return. I am
a God of Love. Love Me. Love your neighbors. But also love yourself.
It makes My heart ache when I see you so angry with yourself when
things go wrong. You
are very precious to Me. Don’t ever forget that! With all my heart, I
