Hear my words Church. Hear my words when you come to me and pray. Hear me when I speak to you concerning each day. Hear me when you cry out to me in pain and misery, for I have much to say. Return to me your first love. Return to The Way of Love. Return and follow me and my ways, for my ways are the only way to live each day.
Coming to me is the only way to find the release you’re looking for. Coming and spending time with me is your only hope for surviving in these days. I am your rest and restoration you’re looking for. I am the only way to enter through the door that you’re looking for. Repent of your wicked ways and stop looking for more, and look only to me. Release your anxiety and cares to me, for putting them in my hands allows you to be free.
I will take care of all your needs. I am the rest and hope that you so desperately seek. I know of all of your needs so that’s why it’s important for you to come and meet with me. Why do you continue to run away and do things your own way? Do you think you are wiser than me? You have forgotten your first love and how I saved you from your life of sin. Do not think you can do this on your own. Pride is a sin that easily sets in and drives your heart away from me. Pride comes before the fall and that’s why I’m wanting you to spend time with me.
Don’t let yourself be easily deceived by all that this world will tell you. They tell you what your listening ears only want to hear, but not the truth that will set you free. Truth is liberating, exhilarating, and sets you right with me. It is the place I’ve always wanted you to be with me. Take your head out of your hands and look only up at me. I am your salvation – the place you want to be.
Here is where you’ll find rest for your soul. Here is where you’ll find peace of mind. Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and find the rest you so desperately need.
Revelation 2:4 New King James Version
4 Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.
1 Peter 5:7 The Passion Translation
7 Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.
Proverbs 16:18 The Passion Translation
18 Your boast becomes a prophecy of a future failure.
The higher you lift yourself up in pride,[a]
the harder you’ll fall in disgrace.
