Where shall I take you today?
Where would you like to go?
What would you like to leave?
What would you like to enter?
Then come with Me.
How patient a teacher am I!
Eternal patience is My love. Patience, as strong and as inviolable as My love, surrounds you.
When you know My patience, then you are better able to hurry.
I wait for you as long as is necessary.
You don't have to wait for Me.
I am beside you.
You are beside Me, but I have to wait for you to acknowledge our inseparability. There is nothing else for Me to wait for.
We can hardly say that I wait. Instead of saying waiting, let Us say listening. I listen for you. Your eyes are beginning to see what your heart already knows and which your mind has denied. My ear covers your heart, and I hear its beat. Your lips are poised to speak of your recognition. You wish to say, "I accept."
Say, "I accept."
Say, "I accept Your love."
Say, "I accept Our relationship."
Say, "I give myself to You, my Father. That is all I have to give. I have nothing else to give you but my awareness. You have given me life and everything else, and You ask for nothing but that I fill myself with Your love. You have offered me water to drink, and I deny my thirst."
Say, "Father, You do not order me around. You do not exert control over my every notion. You let me think that this play on stage is mine for so long as I will to think it. You wait in the wings for me to come off stage and say, 'Author! Author!'
"Father, You wait for me to accept myself. That is my responsibility. For so long as I run from You, I run from myself. I may think I am running to life, but I am running away from my Creator. I run from You because I mistakenly think You want something from me that I am afraid I am unable to give, or that I can give but at great cost.
"Father, the cost is my foolishness. It is hard for me to give it up. I want to pretend I wave the baton of the orchestra of life when, all along, I am one of the notes You play. I know that should be enough for me, to be one of Your notes playing in Heaven and heard on earth, but I have my fantasy that I wave the baton.
"Dear Father, today I ask that the music You have made be heard on earth. I ask that I hear it. And I will listen for Your music just as you have listened for me to say, 'Yes, God.'"
My children, you adventure with Me. You might as well admit that sublime awareness into your life.
Something guides you. You know that much.
Perhaps the story of your life is based on how much you resist or how much you accept.
I suggest you stop resisting and that you start accepting. Accept My presence in your life.
If you cannot see and feel My love as yet, then look upon Me as a Guest you are waiting for. Imagine how it will be in your house when the Guest arrives. You anticipate the arrival and you anticipate the stay. At any moment, the Guest will arrive, and you will run to the door, and you will say, "Welcome!"
At some time you will recognize that you are the guest and I am the Host.
I have been waiting from the beginning of eternity for you to say, "Thank You for inviting me. Thank You for waiting for me to know I am here. Thank You for having me. Thank You for all You have provided for me. I want for nothing. I live in God's House. I live in God's Heart. I live in Your beautiful mansion, God, and I live with all the others You love as fully and deeply as You love me. I call them brother, and I call You Father, and I finally call myself Your love on earth."
