I Knew That

img_5602I knew that.
You wanted them to know but they did not. If and when they did, nor did it do anything. But to Me it meant everything.
So did you know that?
I saw that you cried so much that you had blood blisters. The vessels popped on your lovely face as it became swollen from the uncontrollable and frustrating tears.
I saw that. You had no sleep, no food and no gym life in you to do a thing.
I saw that. You had no friends around when you needed it the most.
You had no fellowship, no fun and no freedom.
You had nothing.
I knew that.

That was when I was able to do something when you were down to nothing.
Because you had so much in your life, in your hands and on your mind.
So in order for Me to work effectively in your life – yes you were stripped down to the bone! There I saw the stone. The stone that was created in your heart. From that I was able to move and begin as all were being chiseled away.
It hurt. I know that. And it still hurts you now. But that is because you made that more important than Me – that cannot be!
I am a jealous God. I want you for Me. No matter what and no matter who is around.

You asked “For how long?”
You asked “How long will I endure this pain?”
I will tell you again – until you learn how to live with Me. Until you know to abide in Me—for apart from Me, you can do nothing.
I want you to have everything. I want you to bear much fruit not pain—because of My great love for you. I can’t stand to see you this way. Please know that. Experience ME at work in your life.
Wear this well—because these are My loved letters to you. Already written. Already predestined for your victory.

I knew that and now I need you to know this. ❤

The Word:
Jeremiah 31:3
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness

Ezekiel 36:26
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

“You shall have no other gods before me.”

John 15:5
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
