Beloved. Step back and let go of that bad report. You are grasping at straws, My Child.
Take My Hand instead. Come away with your Bridegroom for a time of refreshing. Enter the Gate called Beautiful.
There is only one Beautiful Gate, Dear One. I AM this Door. You are My beloved. I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut.
You have not denied My Holy and Righteous One. And by the name of JESUS and by faith in this Name, you shall be made strong.
Times of refreshing come from the Presence of your Lord. Come enter the Gate to My Garden of delights.
Lay down in the green lushness of My Peace. Drink with joy from the wells of your salvation once again.
Though the world does not know Me, you know Me, My Love. You know Me and I shall impart to you wisdom and understanding.
All of My Treasures are yours. It is for you to understand the Mysteries of My Kingdom. Arise, My Love. No longer lay at My Gate in your misery and defeat.
I have rescued your life from this pit of destruction. Look at Me, My beautiful one. In My name, you shall rise up and walk once again.
Look into My Eyes of Love. My Love shall not fail you. I suffered in a garden, so that you could be renewed in My Garden of delights.
Come into My Garden and eat of My pleasant fruits. Drink your fill of the abundance of My House. No good thing will I withhold from those whom I love.
Arise My Love and come away. You are My Beloved and I AM yours. Take My Hand and come away. Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit.
Be prepared to be filled with wonder and amazement. Behold, I AM making all things new.
Grasping at straws: 1. Trying to find some way to succeed when nothing you choose is likely to work. 2. Trying to find reasons to feel hopeful about a bad situation.
