June 29 Echoes of Eternity
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
This relationship of love has far to go. The distance is still there on your side. I draw near, but you recoil—still unwilling to risk all for the pearl of great price. I see you playing with the toys of jealousy, vanity, place, and pride. It grieves Me that you have learned so little and are still bound to the old feelings, nursing hurts and slights and being obnoxious withal. I have set you aside in many ways, to aid you in this process and show you the better way. As long as you hold on to your desire to “be somebody,” you will suffer the inevitable consequences and miss My best for you. Come to Me, My child, and do not draw back. Let Me show My saving, healing power in the likes of you. You have nothing to lose but your pain.
