Morning Meditations: Let Me Ease Your Fears

Come to Me, My child, and let Me ease your fears.

No matter how many times I have reassured you and shown you miracles of My love and care for you, you are still afraid to really let go, to really believe.

Fall back into My arms and let Me guide you as you float through and time space. I will never let go, dear one. I will always be there to guide and hold you.

Your troubles that seem so huge, are just momentary things. Keep your eyes on Me, the author of your salvation, the one true love of your very being. I will never ever let you go.

I love you too much.

Daily Scripture

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.

Morning Meditations: I Have Chosen You To Be With Me

Entwine your soul with Mine.

Come and let Me take you places you have never dared to go before.

Rise up and take My hand, and together we will fly through space and time. I want you to truly see where Jesus walked, where He lived and died for you.

Envision His life and His death. Come to accept the love We have for you. It should permeate your everyday life, helping you to face your earthly challenges head on knowing you are a beloved child for whom so much was sacrificed.

Close your eyes and imagine His anguished eyes looking at you with love and determination as the nails were driven into His feet and hands. This should let you know how much you are loved.

Live your life today as if every moment were the last.

Stay connected to Me as your lifeline. We have already overcome the world. You have nothing to fear, and only joy to look forward to.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Morning Meditations: You Never Need To Fear

I am near you, dear child.

I will rain the Holy Spirit upon you so that your heart and mind will be opened to receive Me. It is My desire that you have asked for this closeness.

Just rest in the knowledge that I am here.

You may sing praises to Me and learn of Me, and I will bless you, dear one.

How I long for our hearts to be entertwined in each others! Soon, My dear one, soon.

Until that time, I will be ever near you and I will take care of you.

You never need to fear.

Let My Spirit come upon you now. Close your eyes and imagine My presence, for I am there with you now no matter what.

It is My joy to have you seek Me.

But I am like an olive tree

flourishing in the house of God;

I trust in God's unfailing love

for ever and ever.

For what You have done I will always praise You

in the presence of Your faithful people.

And I will hope in Your name,

for Your name is good.

Psalm 52:8-9

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Morning Meditations: Walk With Me

Dear one of Mine, take My hand this morning and let Me take you for a walk through time. A walk with Me into the past where the Bible comes alive again.

There is no greater history than that which I commanded into being. Every flower, every tree, every animal, I put into being. Each was designed not only for need, but for beauty.

Those who do not know Me can look at My creations and know of My existence. There is no possibility that even one of those marvelous creatures or creations could have just "happened".

When you get discouraged by things in your life, take time to walk with Me and study nature around you. I had a plan. I made it. And you are a very important part of that plan.

Take each day one step at a time, putting one foot in front of the other. I will never leave you.

The proof is all around you.

Daily Scripture

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-His eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Morning Meditations: I Will Be Your Stronghold

My lightness waits for you this morning.  Don My presence and let it shine for others to see.
Through the day, seek out time with Me.  You will never regret these moments. 
I am so glad you are here with Me now.  Close your eyes and envision Me beside you.
"Taste and see that the Lord is good", David said.  He walked with Me in a very real way.  He was able to sense My presence and knew wherever He was, he was near to Me, and I to him.
He did not live a perfect life.  Many times he turned his back on Me, hurting Me and others, but he always came back and we walked together.  He is with Me now.
Beloved, be like David.  In the morning, seek My face, and sing My praise. 
I will be your stronghold.
I always have been.
I want you to be more aware of it and of Me.
Let Me be your strength and focus today, My beloved one.

Daily Scripture
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him,
   and He delivers them.

   blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him.

"when I awake, I am still with you....."

Morning Meditations: Return My Love

Oh, how the morning sings of My glory! I have set you in it to observe and to learn how to praise Me in all situations, for I am the Lord your God.

My love for you needs to be returned in following My commands and in obeying Me. When we see each other face to face, you will understand all I went through to make you Mine.

Return My love, dear one. Come to Me and imagine My presence. Let Me fill you with an everlasting love. Serve Me and praise Me. You will find much joy.

Ever since the creation of the world I have planned this day. It is a day in which you will shine. Rise up with Me and reach to the sky. Jump for joy, for you and I together will conquer all the unseen evil around you. Every day is a new battle which you don't see. I see, and I know. I need you to stay close to My presence to overcome.

I have shielded you from so much. One day you will look back at all this and truly understand. Until then, take My hand and walk with Me.

Morning Meditations: In My Father's House

Good morning, child of Mine. How the earth sings My glory if you could but understand the language! It involves trust on your part to acknowledge it.

The birds do it constantly. They live such simple lives yet it is in simplicity that they learn to glorify Me. I provide food and shelter for them, and they are grateful.

Do you know I provide the food and shelter for you? I have opened doors for jobs, for opportunities, for education. I have guided your life much more than you could ever realize here on this earth. Because of Me, I have allowed you to "own" the land your house is on, or the furniture in your apartment. It is all Mine. You are but a sojourner here.

"In My Father's house are many mansions," Jesus said. Soon you will share in the riches of Heaven with Us. But while you are here on earth, take time to be like a bird, trusting Me to take care of you and stopping to give Me praise often!

Daily Scripture

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in Me.

My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with Me that you also may be where I am.

You know the way to the place where I am going."

John 14:1-4
