      “I AM with you.  I AM with you as closely as petals on a flower, as leaves on a tree, as ripples in the stream, as waves in the ocean, as sand in the desert.  I AM with you, closely.  And, even if you do not comprehend the meaning this day, I AM in you, and you are in Me, and I AM in The Father, a statement said thousands of years ago, so that you might begin to open, to comprehending: One, Unity, Oneness.                                  

         

      “There are some of you who are in the process of completing your mission, your ministry upon the Earth.  You know what you have been created to do, sent to Earth to do, and by the grace of God, and your own strength and courage, you are doing what you are meant to do.  Through faith you have been led, and you are where you are meant to be, saying the words you are meant to say, and doing the deeds you are meant to do.  For this, God’s love flows through you as a mighty river.  You are the presence of God upon Earth.  You are blessed.

       “Some of you have an inkling of what you are being called to do, but the time has not provided an open door for you to walk through, so you are biding your time and waiting for the call to stir you to action.  You do not have to wait.  This is time for preparation.  In fact, every day is time for preparation.  For, when the call goes out, when the trumpet sounds, when The Whisper is heard from within, that is not the time to begin preparation.  Preparation is now, and you can turn the practice of preparing into your mission, into your ministry, for it is the beginning.  So, prepare.

       “No matter where you find yourself today you have the opportunity to bring forth The Glory of God onto the Earth.  If you are a teacher or a professor, you have a position of authority in the school, in the college, or university.  Individuals look to you for answers, for explanation, for clarity, for knowledge, sometimes even wisdom.  Do not think of what you do as a job.  Think of it more as a calling, a calling which provides a space where you can show love, kindness, understanding, compassion every day, to everyone you encounter; and, through your actions, your words, and even your thoughts, you can make a difference, you can bring light where there was shadow or darkness.  Do not give away, or reject, the opportunity to let all you do, during the day, be done for The Glory of God.  And, the same applies to any workplace.  While you might not be in management, you still have a presence, no matter what your job might be.  And, as you have a job, there is an opportunity to do everything you do, each day, for The Glory of God.  It does not matter whether you are hammering a nail, or signing an important document, or giving a lecture, or teaching work skills.  Do not miss the opportunity to bring the presence of God into your workplace.  And, what if you are a student?  True, you are not the figure of authority in that school, in that institution of learning, but you have the opportunity, just as well.  You have the opportunity to gather knowledge, to learn the figures and the words necessary so that you might graduate.  But, while you are there, you have an opportunity to show respect, and kindness, and gratitude to all those around you, changing the atmosphere of the classroom so that those who come near you feel the presence of God through you.

       “Do not give-up the days you have been given, saying that you do not know what it is you are to do.  What it is you are to do will come to you, but most of the time you are led into it: by the daily tasks; by encounters with others; by games played on the playground, or at the gym.  Every minute of every day, in your lifetime upon Earth, offers the opportunity to bring God to the center of what you are doing.

       “If something is preventing you from walking amongst the poor, the homeless, the hungry, the thirsty, the wounded, those imprisoned and in hospitals, you can pray, you can bless, you can call forth your blessings upon each person you see.  And, if something is preventing you from speaking kindly and lovingly, you can pray, and bless each person you see.  You can start the changes, which need to be made, so that you are prepared for the mission, for the ministry, in your thoughts.  What are you thinking?  Are your thoughts a blessing, or are you cursing?  Bless all you see.

       “If only one of you, hearing My words, or reading My words this day, will rise-up, and accept the responsibility to create the perfect day, solely for The Glory of God, then the world be changed today.  One person makes a difference in the energy which is upon the Earth.  If ten of you will rise-up to do the same, it will be as a ripple on a pond.  You see the importance when you do it.  Once you begin to live this way, you will not choose any other way.  You will want to live your entire time upon the Earth following The Way.”
