When your outlook is dark, Beloved, let your thoughts rise to My Shining City of Light. There is no need for the sun, for the Glory of the Son shines upon you, day and night.
Heaven is your real home, My Child. I know you are homesick at times. Here is Truth. You are not of this world although you are in it, Dear One.
Your home is where your heart is. Your heart is with Me. My Spirit dwells there. I in you and you in Me. You are seated with Me in heavenly places at the Right Hand of Majesty.
This life on earth is only a vapor compared to eternity. Those who are born again shall be with Me forevermore. There will be no more sorrow or pain or crying for I will wipe every tear from your eyes.
Rejoice today Beloved. Let not your heart be troubled. My Face is always shining upon you. Soon, I shall rescue you from this earth. We shall see each other face to Face. Then the sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting Light, and your God will be your Glory.
