Dearest one, I know that everything in your life feels so fragmented right now because you are doing so many things — you are going in so many directions and you are increasingly tempted to stop what you are doing because you are overwhelmed and it seems like you are not making any progress or any impact for My Kingdom. Refuse to allow yourself to feel like the victim because of limitations you perceive are being put on you by others. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dearest one, I know that you are not able to see the entire picture of the jigsaw puzzle I have given you to solve. Believe Me when I say that once the pieces come together you will be able to see what I see and you will be able to move forward with Me into all that I have planned for you.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. - Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV)
You must trust Me in this time of building dearest one! You must trust Me to give you the strategies on how to create what I have called you to create right now! Trust Me to help you to do this and let us build together!
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall [a]direct your paths. - Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV)
Dearest one, understand that I have had you put this puzzle together without showing you what the picture will look like in the end. The reason why I have not allowed you to peek at the puzzle box is because I desire for you to trust Me and to do this with Me. Do not try to figure this out on your own any more dearest one! Trust Me in this, even when you think it is all taking much longer than you expected for the pieces to come together! Refuse to quit before it is finished dearest one!
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.- Galatians 6:9 (NKJV)
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
- Psalm 32:8 (NKJV)
Dearest one, I know that it feels like you just need to throw the puzzle you are working on away and get a smaller and simpler puzzle to put together, so that, at least you will know how to put it together on your own and not have to rely on Me to help you. Dearest one, do not give up in the middle of this process, as difficult as it appears to you because I Am helping you to put this puzzle together and it will be finished a lot quicker, the sooner you take the time to slow down long enough to spend with Me in the secret place. I desire for you to build with Me from the place of rest dearest one.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
- Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. - John 15:4 (NKJV)
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. - John 14:7 (NKJV)
Once you see the puzzle come together, you will be amazed at what we will have accomplished! Once this puzzle is finished, you will be able to see yourself healed and made whole and you will be able to receive the blueprint that you will need to begin to build the new thing that I will show you for this new era. For now, trust Me, for I Am removing all of the puzzle pieces that do not belong in your life and in your soul which do not fit in the puzzle we are working on. These pieces that do not fit from your past need to be sorted, taken out of the mix and thrown out. Dearest one, do not allow yourself to retrieve them from the trash and try to make those old pieces fit into your puzzle, as much as you desire them to fit, because they will only distort how the puzzle picture will end up looking. Do not allow the enemy to distract you from creating the picture that I Am revealing to you. It is very important that you allow Me to guide you so that the picture ends up looking the way it was intended — according to My original design for you. It will end up looking very different from what you think or imagine dearest one!
And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine bursts the wineskins, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But new wine must be put into new wineskins.”
- Mark 2:22 (NKJV)
18 “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert. 20 The beast of the field will honor Me, The jackals and the ostriches, Because I give waters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To give drink to My people, My chosen. - Isaiah 43:18-20 (NKJV)
Right now you may feel stuck because you have no idea how to put this puzzle together and it seems too daunting a task, which is why you feel so tempted to quit and start over on your terms, out of frustration because you can only see in part. Dearest one, know that you do not have to do this alone because I Am here to help you. I will give you the strategies and the patience that you need to complete this puzzle with Me, because the old strategies you have used will not work in what we are building right now. It is very important that you allow Me to finish what I have started in you before we can proceed into your Kingdom assignment dearest one!
11 Now all discipline[a] seems to be more pain than pleasure at the time, yet later it will produce a transformation of character, bringing a harvest of righteousness and peace[b] to those who yield to it.[c] 12 So be made strong even in your weakness by lifting up your tired hands in prayer and worship. And strengthen your weak knees,[d] 13 for as you keep walking forward on God’s paths[e] all your stumbling ways will be divinely healed! - Hebrews 12:11-13 (TPT)
Dearest one, come away with Me and sit with your Abba! As you partner with Me in this, I will ensure that you are well positioned for where I Am calling you to be in this new era! Be patient dearest one, the puzzle pieces are coming together! Dearest one, be still and know that I Am the Lord your God and know that NOTHING can stop My plans from being fulfilled in you, through you and in your life!
But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, That I may declare all Your works. - Psalm 73:28 (NKJV)
