SOMETIMES YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH THIS world is wearisome.
You feel as if you've been plodding uphill wearing leaden clothing, and you don't want to take another step.
At such times you need to stop and re-center your thoughts on Me.
Remember that I am your constant Companion, eager to help you take the next step—and then the next.
You have to take only one at a time!
Instead of staring grimly into the future, dreading the journey ahead of you, direct your focus to the present and to My Presence with you.
As you walk with Me along your life-path, let the hope of heaven shine brightly on you, lighting up your perspective dramatically.
Though the way ahead may be steep and difficult, the end of your journey is stunningly glorious—beyond description!
And every moment you are getting closer to your heavenly home.
As you look to Me in faith—trusting in My finished work on the cross—the Light of heaven's hope shines upon you and brightens the path just before you.
