Be a Willing Vessel

My child, I told you I would make a way for you.
Be diligent and accomplish the task I have for you.
Do not neglect the gift I have given you.
I will direct your pathway.
You have chosen to follow Me and honor Me with your life.
I only need willing vessels.
I will pour My love through you to many hearts.
Do not despair if My promises are long in coming to fruition.
Every day you work you come closer to the prize.
I love you very much.
Your prayers and thanksgiving reach the throne room of God himself.
I will answer those petitions.
I know you often marvel at My goodness and care.
As a mother cares for her beloved children, I care for you.
Be obedient to the dream I have placed within your heart.
