WFJ: Happiness grows when shared!

Jesus

Let go of everything else and come to Me! Be focused on Me, on My face, and look into My eyes. Do you see any scorn or reproach or rebuke in there? Or do you see eyes of love and understanding? Do you realize that I love you with an eternal love and there’s nothing that you can do, or not do, that will ever turn Me away from you?

I love you, and I would give My life all over again just for you, even if there was no one else in the world! I would still take up My cross up to Calvary to bring you home with Me, where you are destined to live forever! “In My Father’s house there are many mansions” (John 14:2), and there is one prepared just for you! You’re not going to live alone in there, but it’s made just for you, the way you like it, with all the wonderful things that you enjoy even now while on earth!

There’s nothing that’s beautiful and nice that I haven’t made, and it’s all for your pleasure and Mine to share it together, but what is there on earth is but  “a shadow of things to come” (Col. 2:17), which are going to blow your mind when you see them! Just wait until you get here in My Father’s house! It’s going to be exhilarating for you, but for now learn to enjoy the beautiful taste of things to come in the creation that I made that surrounds you and fills you with joy! Enjoy the world that I made for you, for it’s My pleasure to see you happy!

When I said that “if any man would follow Me, should deny himself and take up his cross daily” (Luke 9:23), I did not mean that life would be one of suffering and pain for you, that’s a misunderstanding of some who read behind what I said, which I never intended that way! “Taking up your cross” means to follow My footsteps and love others the way you saw Me do, daily, and at every opportunity, always willing and ready to show love to those who are broken and need help and encouragement, prayer and healing, faith and providence …

If you are always ready to lend a helping hand to those that I bring into your path, then you are taking up your cross daily, but that should not be a cause of pain and suffering, but an opportunity to love and rejoice, knowing that you are making a difference in someone’s life!

That’s how that verse was meant to be read … when you have a opportunity and a choice between doing something selfish for yourself or taking the time to lend a helping hand to someone who’s crossed your path and needs your love and attention, you have a chance to “deny yourself” in that very moment and “take up your cross” to follow My example and do what I would do if I was there … Well, actually “I am” there! I’m there through you, for you are My body on earth and I have no other physical body but yours to show love to that person … You are My eyes, My hands and My face to that poor soul that day, and you can put aside your own needs for a moment, in order to show My love to someone else who’s more needy that you are …

Does that mean that you cannot enjoy the life of love and joy and peace that I have given you as one of My dearest children that I love with an everlasting love? Absolutely not! I’m a God of love and I want to shower you with the love and joy that I have promised in My word! And you will find that the greatest joy that you will ever taste in this life is when you share My love with someone else who needs it and you see the smiling face, instead of the pain and sorrow that you had seen before you took time to share with them My love! That smile will make your day, and it will fill you with such love and joy and peace that you will want to do it over and over again!

That’s what life is all about, My child … It’s about sharing My love with others, with your wife, with your children, with your friends, and with all of those that I bring along your path daily… That’s why I said that you should “deny yourself”, meaning that you should not be so caught into yourself that you lose sight of those around you, for happiness eludes you when you try to hold on to it for yourself, but it grows and it prospers when you share it with others!

Actually, the more you give it way, the more it comes back to you one hundred fold and you can never run out of it! The more you give it, the more you get it, and happiness will grow in abundance the more you try to make others happy! Try it, and you will see! See what love can do in your life, if you “deny yourself, take up your cross and follow My each and every day”! There’s nothing that will ever take the place of that in your life, nothing will make you happier than seeing smiles popping up everywhere, wherever you sow love in their hearts! Thank you for being willing to be just that: My love for those around you! I love you.

    Dear Renato, Thank you for continuing to share these fresh hotcakes from heaven. I love the very first line, “Let go of everything else and come to Me! Be focused on Me, on My face, and look into My eyes.” You model that so well. The LORD has been speaking me similarly. Jesus is preparing His bride to be ready for his soon second coming. Blessings, Randy
