What It’s Time For You To Do

 

“Put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires” (Ephesians 4:22).

My daughter, hear the song in your heart for Me. Hear the song of longing, of beauty, of self-forgetfulness, for the sake of joy.

Surrender and receive more joy.

What is it you need to surrender? What is it you need to believe more deeply about Me? What is it, child?

Oh, come, be rescued.

Oh, come, hear the thunder in the distance, the rolling of the beat, my own heart speaking your name.

Lay down, my girl.

Lay down the future.

I’ve got you.

Lay down the past.

I’ve got you.

Believe I am for you, that I come for your heart in ways you don’t yet even know.

But you want to know, don’t you?

You want to see Me coming for you, running, my arms spread open. Daughter, turn it over again, that place in your heart that I touch, that I reach in and grasp and show you what it is you need to lay down.

Lay yourself down, my love.

It won’t hurt too much. I promise. And what is pain? Come—come deeper now.

Lay down.

Come closer.

It is only painful when the old self dies. Let it die again.

Oh, the thunder rolls. My heart beating still. Let that self be killed to receive more of Me. I promise—it’s worth any temporary pain.
