Heavenletter #5728 God Sure Loves You!, July 31, 2016
I whisper to you. I whisper, “You are My beloved.”
Would that you hear Me and you know that it is to you I speak. If you do not hear Me now, you will hear Me. To barely hear Me is still to hear Me. I do not boom as I speak. I speak quietly so I will awaken you yet not jar you. When you do hear Me, you will hear Me from inside yourself.
Inside yourself is the wilderness you cry out from until you do hear My Voice. Perhaps it is My Voice alone that you must hear. Perhaps My Voice means more than My Words. In any case, hear Me. I am stationed within you.
If you feel a faint longing for Me from within you, it is My longing you feel, for I long for you to receive Me, for I am integral to you. The cry you hear in your heart is My cry to you. “Hear Me.”
Is this a lot to ask? It is little, yet it is everything. It is the Open Sesame.
I knock on your door. “Let Me in,” I say. You may not hear me. When you do not hear Me, you do not hear your own longing for Me.
Your life does not have to be everything there is, yet your life does require My Presence. You have My Presence. It means something to know you have a fortune within you.
I am not a stuck-up kind of God. I am a down-home kind of God. I am a Family God. I am whole-heartedly yours. You may have held Me in abeyance for a long time. Any amount of time holding Me in abeyance is too long.
I am not a Gatekeeper. I am a Door-Opener. I am the open door through which you walk right up the Stairway to Heaven.
I seek you, and you may not know that you seek Me. You may seek some trifle more than you seek your awareness of Me. Sometimes I am no more than the Unseen and Unheard in your life. You may see Me only in the far-off distance if at all. To you, I may be like a package in the mailroom that you have yet to pick up. You can always get it later.
One wonderful thing about Me is that, once you partake of Me, there is no end to Me. Once you start to open up to Me, watch out — there is always more. I am a steady fulsome kind of God.
I talk to you frankly. At first, it seems I walk around the edges of your heart. That is, only so far as you dare let Me in. You are perhaps stand-offish. Somehow you are fearful of opening the Door of Love by which I offer you the Kingdom. True, you have lived a long time without Me. In terms of Life on Earth, that much is true.
You have some ideas in your head. You don’t dare open your heart to Me, yet you keep some ideas hanging uselessly on the wall of your thoughts. You fear letting go of some of these thoughts that have been hanging out with for so long. In for a penny, in for a pound.
What terrible thing do you think would happen if you ousted certain outdated thoughts? The big bad wolf will not get you. The big bad wolf already has more in his thrall than he can chomp on.
You, on the other hand, in the midst of your life, go hungry. You are somewhat aware of your hesitation about voting for Me, yet you may be someone who sees your very abstention of Me as a declaration of independence and greatly in your favor. Beloveds, how can denial of the Closeness and Oneness of God be a feather in your cap?
A little bit of realization of God will put roses in your cheeks.
