May 12 Echoes of Eternity
That I may know Him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.
Avoiding suffering is avoiding Me, for I am there for you. I do not delight in seeing My children in pain. I do not willingly afflict the children of men. But you know, My child, that I have suffered for you, and that those who love Me are given to share in My sufferings. You do not, you cannot, understand this with your natural mind. Only the experience itself can reveal what I am saying.
You have not been a willing participant in My suffering, and have sought various ways to avoid it. Only My persistent love that would not let you go prevailed—and you see a little clearer, do you not, the secrets hidden there? There is no cause for fear—only faithful assent to that which I allow. It will be all right.
