Ten Guidelines from God

> Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry.
> Have you forgotten that I am here to take all your burdens
> and carry them for you? Or do you just enjoy fretting over
> every little thing that comes your way?

> Something needs done or taken care of. Put it on the list.
> No, not YOUR list. Put it on MY to-do-list. Let ME be the
> one to take care of the problem. I can't help you until
> you turn it over to Me. And although My to-do-list is
> long, I am after all... God. I can take care of anything you
> put into my hands. In fact, if the truth were ever really
> known, I take care of a lot of things for you that you
> never even realize.

> Once you've given your burdens to Me, quit trying to
> take them back. Trust in Me. Have the faith that I will take
> care of all your needs, your problems and your trials.
> Problems with the kids? Put them on My list. Problem with
> finances? Put it on My list. Problems with your emotional
> roller coaster? For My sake, put it on My list. I want to
> help you. All you have to do is ask.

> Don't wake up one morning and say, "Well, I'm
> feeling much stronger now, I think I can handle it from
> here." Why do you think you are feeling stronger now?
> It's simple.You gave Me your burdens and I'm taking
> care of them. I also renew your strength and cover you in my
> peace. Don't you know that if I give you these problems
> back, you will be right back where you started? Leave them
> with Me and forget about them. Just let Me do my job.

> I want you to forget a lot of things. Forget what was
> making you crazy. Forget the worry and the fretting because
> you know I'm in control. But there's one thing I
> pray you never forget. Please, don't forget to talk to
> Me - OFTEN! I love YOU! I want to hear your voice. I want
> you to include Me in on the things going on in your life. I
> want to hear you talk about your friends and family. Prayer
> is simply you having a conversation with Me. I want to be
> your dearest friend.

> I see a lot of things from up here that you can't see
> from where you are. Have faith in Me that I know what
> I'm doing. Trust Me; you wouldn't want the view from
> My eyes. I will continue to care for you, watch over you,
> and meet your needs. You only have to trust Me. Although I
> have a much bigger task than you, it seems as if you have so
> much trouble just doing your simple part. How hard can trust
> be?

> You were taught to share when you were only two years old.
> When did you forget? That rule still applies. Share with
> those who are less fortunate than you. Share your joy with
> those who need encouragement. Share your laughter with those
> who haven't heard any in such a long time. Share your
> tears with those who have forgotten how to cry. Share your
> faith with those who have none.

> I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have
> so many diverse experiences. You grow from a child to an
> adult, have children, change jobs many times, learn many
> trades, travel to so many places, meet thousands of people,
> and experience so much. How can you be so impatient then
> when it takes Me a little longer than you expect to handle
> something on My to-do-list? Trust in My timing, for My
> timing is perfect. Just because I created the entire
> universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should always
> rush, rush, rush...

> Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love
> you. They may not dress like you, or talk like you, or live
> the same way you do, but I still love you all. Please try to
> get along, for My sake. I created each of you different in
> some way. It would be too boring if you were all identical.
> Please, know I love each of your differences.

> As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself? You
> were created by me for one reason only -- to be loved, and
> to love in return. I am a God of Love. Love Me. Love your
> neighbors. But also love yourself. It makes My heart ache
> when I see you so angry with yourself when things go wrong.
> You are very precious to me.

Don't ever forget......
> Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of
> arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but
> rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally
> worn out, and loudly proclaiming

WOW-- What a Ride!"
