|LESSONS from Our Lord for the World
Volume IV Lesson #53
My dear one, when a person, who is a beloved of Mine, does not pay heed to acknowledging your own creative beauty and self-giving ways, do not despair. Move forward triumphantly. Remember, all are created good in My Image, but all are also stained through the stain of sin in free choice to follow the way of the world.
At times, even My most beloved fall prey to pride, self-centeredness and the desire to control and be ruler. When you are graced to witness this, and fall prey to suffering because of human ways, do not despair. Have hope, and call on Me, your Shepherd. Take firmly the hands of this suffering and sorrow, but do not choose to grasp the hands of pride or hatred to deceive you away. Once you take hold of their hands, it is difficult to unleash from their grasp. At times, the force can be irresistible and pressing; but call out, and in a moment I shall free you. Do not despair or become discouraged.
My Love for you remains with you; and I shall never leave you, even when you think you are most alone. Be My knight in armor; and, with confidence in My Love of yourself, continue not to be pulled into the funnel of the manipulations of control, but be free. Like a stream of water, with its sounds of laughter, remain joyful in the triumphant journey you are taking. These are simply the seeds of evil and deceit, lurking to try at every chance to prevent the continuation of your journey to Truth and a life of beauty.
I am trying to strengthen you and prepare you for battle amongst the explosions of artillery! Be my knight, but also you need to know how to master yourself in these times of difficulties, so that nothing will drive you away from Me. It is free will. At any time on your journey, you are always free to leave and descend the mountain. I do not hold you in confinement or slavery!
Your desire to walk My path to freedom is your choice. The climb is not so easy, and many must enter through the desert in order to continue further; but I promise you that you will have Me to help you. I give you My finest trained-guides to help you also, but you must be careful never to attempt the climb alone without Me. For when bitterness engages, it is most sorrowful and cannot be conquered without Love.
I have promised to protect you as long as you continue to desire and long for Me. I shall never shame you, but you must trust in Me. For I know only the safe, everlasting Way!
Peace and Love, My little one. Ad Deum.
