I heard God tell me, “My grace is sufficient for you. My power is made perfect in weakness.”  He explained that our relationship had to be pruned so it could bear more fruit.  I needed to sit in order to seek HIM out.  I would have never done that otherwise and I would have never have come to learn the true HIM.  My Father provider, my deliverer, my redeemer, his hands of salvation and his love.  He told me that he was not here to persecute me, but to love me and make me whole again.  For in his love, I would be made whole.  He needed me to lean on him in hardship, times of hope and joy.  Don’t forget Him.  Always love Him.  He delighted in me always.  My true freedom would be found in Him.  Freedom to love, to laugh, to dance and to sing.  For He is the Lord your God.  He would bring heaven down to earth to meet me.  I was enough and I’ve always been enough.  He made me perfectly.  He went on to say that my freedom journey was not just for me.  It was so others could see His works and LOVE!  For His love was not meant for me alone.  I would lead others into freedom! He would give me the words to say and the hands to hold.  I would be His greatest tool.  I was changing peoples’ lives around me and I didn’t even know it.  This was my freedom song! A song meant for others to hear and dance to.  His music was not meant for me me alone, but for others to join in.  I was to share my journey and he would give me the words to say and the hearts to heal! For I was to be His hand and feet.

What is God trying to prune in you?

Is He trying to hold out an olive branch and you are blinded by earthly values and don’t see his gift? 

What do you need to let go of? Sometimes we need to let go of, the thing that we are holding onto the most! 

Father God is there waiting right next to you! You just need to cry out! Can you scream? Yes! Can you curse? Absolutely! He hears ever groan and ever word said in anguish.  He is right beside you and will never leave.  Remember, a kind father lets their child learn and does not just give everything to them.  For if He did, there would be nothing learned in the process and the journey would soon be forgotten. For it is in our struggles that we grow and it is our growth that makes us whole.  A seed struggles to find light and a butterfly struggles to immerse from a cocoon.  Not because our God is a vengeful God, but because he loves us so!
