I am all-encompassing. I am everywhere all at once. I never miss a beat. I hold the entire Universe in one embrace. I hold you in My embrace right now. My embrace is firm yet not tight. Within My embrace, you can do your own breathing. You can live your own life, so to speak. In your imagination, you can wander, yet you are nevertheless caught in My embrace. Caught in My embrace, you are yet freed. In My arms is the freedom you so desire. In My arms, you travel every coast.
Beloveds, I am telling you how to see yourself. See yourself as the God Being that you are. It is for you to know what you are worth. Know it, and then be quiet about it. No one else needs to know. It is not for you to blab about. It is not for you to say a word about your worth. There are some things to be still about, and this is one. Keep your worth to yourself. In words I mean.
When I say that each one of you on Earth is indispensable, you find that hard to believe. But it is true. Each of you fills a place in the weave of the world. I did put you where you are. It was not a flip of the coin. I chose you to do something for Me. You were needed in the spot you are. And now you can make something of it. You can just fill space or you can enliven the space you fill. The point is that I picked you for something important that only you can fulfill.
Believe that you have a Self.
Believe that there is a core of you that is pure beyond what you have concluded. You are worthy of note. All the things about yourself that dismay you are nothing but camouflage. The things that dismay you about yourself are camouflage on top of camouflage. Remove it.
Be not attached even to My words. It is not My words that you have to know or recite. It is the love and opportunity they give you that are to be known.
My words are like an embrace of love, My arms clasping you to My breast. It is not the clasp you have to know. It is not the embrace you have to know. It is the Oneness of Our love which encompasses beyond My embrace.
A father supports his children, but the father is much more than a provider. What is beyond his working to support his family?
When you are pleased with what life offers you, remember that I am the Source of it and that it is given to Me. I give to Myself generously through you. You are the accepter, but I am the Receiver. I am the Giver as well. All is given to Me. All is from Me and to Me.
What about pain, you ask?
Let Us talk about My love for a moment. It has been such a mystery to you, what love is, that you may be it, and you are perplexed how I, God, can love so much and love so much that which, in your eyes, has imperfection. You wonder how I can love you so much, simply as you are, a fussing being on Earth.
Sometimes you disdain yourself. That is not your own thought. It certainly is not your original thought.
Faith is a theme. It is like an emblem on a T-shirt smack in the middle of your chest.
Faith is also a winding pattern as on the hem of a skirt.
Faith is interior and exterior. If we look at you as a round globe, the outer line of you is the center amplified.
Faith is not something you hunt. You do not achieve it. Allow it, and it will be there, a full assemblage of faith.
You are learning to trust. Trusting is greater confidence in your own heart. It is not something out there that you have to trust in, but your own self and the Great God within.
Your life is built on trust. You put one foot down and trust that the other will follow. You put a flower in the sun and water it and trust it will grow. When you go to bed at night, you trust that you will wake up.
You equate coming to peace in life with coming to peace with loss and death, the main issues you consider important.
What coming to peace with life really means is coming to terms with the unholy concept that life will not always go according to your will. When you come to terms with that and the little impish things in life, you will be at peace. The larger matters will then take care of themselves.
