Hear Me clearly: I do not “reprimand” you. I am not that kind of God! If you are facing challenges that seem to attack or deplete your spirit, know that I may be forming or shaping you more into My likeness, – and so, choose to say thank you. Choose to trust Me even more, knowing that I will reveal Myself to you more fully with each step of your life. My ways are not meant to be hard. Sometimes they call upon you to shed unimportant details, enlightening simpler priorities and gleaning peace from it all as you learn to live a life of simplicity. I am with you, and so, you are up for the challenge!
