There Is an Eave for You to Go Under
It is not a platitude to say that all is well. It is not a put-off. It is true. No matter the emergency, no matter the extent of your sense of urgency, angst or genuine heartache at this time, no matter how urgent the world may say that this, whatever this may be, is, beloveds, once and for all believe Me when I tell you there is no life and death situation.
Yes, I can hear you say: "That's easy for You to say, God."
It is easy for Me to say. Truth IS easy for Me to say. The relative world is relative. Some troubles in the world are considered more, and some troubles are considered less. That is how it is in the relative world. Comparisons. Degrees. It hurts when you stub your toe. Then a bad headache is worse. There are deadlines that you must meet that seem like a matter of life and death. What are the deadlines really? They are not train-stopping. And, if even the train should stop, it will start again, or another will be coming shortly.
Beloveds, there are tizzies, the much ado about nothing, and there are situations known as tragedies that the world has taken a consensus about, taken an unanimous vote that they merit suffering, deep suffering. In fact, the world says that, if under certain conditions, you don't suffer, something is the matter with you.
I would take away your sense of woe.
The fact is that in the relative world, nothing belongs to you. Your children don't belong to you. Your parents don't belong to you. In the temporal relative world, all is on loan. Your life is like a book you take out of the library. You have to bring it back. Some books you can take out for a month. Some for a week. In every case, there is a return date.
Even so, you will weep, and, even so, I will tell you that all is well. I will tell you that a body is only a body. It is not everything.
You feel separation, and I tell you that there is no separation. A body dies. Bodies will die. The soul never. There is no loss except as you say so.
Meanwhile, I will continue to say that all is well. Because you cannot see a rainbow doesn't mean there isn't one. And I am telling you that when clouds come out, you don't have to stay under them. And if there is a cloudburst and it is pouring rain, there is an eave for you to go under. I am saying that even though you have not physically seen Me, I am here, and I am here for you. I lift you into My arms. I hold you tight. I wipe your tears. I love you.
You may say: "God, that is all well and good. Meanwhile, my heart is broken. My life is crumbling. My heart and my life are Humpty-Dumpty, and cannot be put back together again. I am not consoled."
Remember that life is a gift. It always has been. It is not necessary for you to spurn a gift. Spurn tragedy instead. Spurn suffering. Live life.
Life is an offering. It is an offering I give to you. Take care of the life I give you. Life on Earth is a passing scene in a movie. While you are cast in the movie, play your part. Never did I assign you to be a tragedian. I assigned you to be a light-bringer. Bring light into your life. Let the light in. Pull up the shades.
In darkness and in light, love.
