LISTEN TO ME

Effective immediately, please be aware that there are changes YOU need to
Make in YOUR life. These changes need to be completed in order that I may
Fulfill My promises to you to grant you peace, joy and happiness in this
Life. I apologize for any inconvenience, but after all that I am doing, this
Seems very little to ask of you. I know, I already gave you the 10
Commandments. Keep them. But follow these guidelines, also:

1. QUIT WORRYING
Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry. Have you
Forgotten that I am here to take all your burdens and carry them for you? Or
Do you just enjoy fretting over every little thing that comes your way?

2. PUT IT ON THE LIST
Something needs to be done or taken care of. Put it on the list. No, not
YOUR list. Put it on MY to-do-list. Let ME be the one to take care of the
Problem. I can't help you until you turn it over to Me. And although My
To-do-list is long, I am after all... God. I can take care of anything you
Put into My hands. In fact, if the truth were ever really known, I take care
Of a lot of things for you that you never even realize.

3. TRUST ME
Once you've given your burdens to Me, quit trying to take them back. Trust
In Me. Have the faith that I will take care of all your needs. YOUR problems
And your trials. Problems with the kids? Put them on My list. Problem with
Finances? Put it on My list. Problems with your emotional roller coaster?
For My sake, put it on My list. I want to help you. All you have to do is
Ask.

4. LEAVE IT ALONE
Don't wake up one morning and say, "Well, I'm feeling much stronger now, I
Think I can handle it from here." Why do you think you are feeling stronger
Now? It's simple. You gave Me your burdens and I'm taking care of them. I
Also renew your strength and cover you in my peace. Don't you know that if I
Give you these problems back, you will be right back where you started?
Leave them with Me and forget about them. Just let Me do my job.

5. TALK TO ME
I want you to forget a lot of things. Forget what was making you crazy.
Forget the worry and the fretting because you know I'm in control. But
there's one thing I pray you never forget. Please, don't forget to talk to
Me - OFTEN! I love YOU! I want to hear your voice. I want you to include Me
In on the things going on in your life. I want to hear you talk about your
Friends and family. Prayer is simply you having a conversation with Me. I
Want to be your dearest friend.

6. HAVE FAITH
I see a lot of things from up here that you can't see from where you are.
Have faith in Me that I know what I'm doing. Trust Me; you wouldn't want the
View from My eyes. I will continue to care for you, watch over you, and meet
Your needs. You only have to trust Me. Although I have a much bigger task
Than you, it seems as if you have so much trouble just doing your simple
Part. How hard can trust be?

7. SHARE
You were taught to share when you were only two years old. When did you
Forget? That rule still applies. Share with those who are less fortunate
Than you. Share your joy with those who need encouragement. Share your
Laughter with those who haven't heard any in such a long time. Share your
Tears with those who have forgotten how to cry. Share your faith with those
Who have none.

8. BE PATIENT
I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many diverse
Experiences. You grow from a child to an adult, have children, change jobs
Many times, learn many trades, travel to so many places, meet thousands of
People, and experience so much. How can you be so impatient then when it
Takes Me a little longer than you expect to handle something on My
To-do-list? Trust in My timing, for My timing is perfect. Just because I
Created the entire universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should
Always rush, rush, rush.

9. BE KIND
Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you. They may not
Dress like you, or talk like you, or live the same way you do, but I still
Love you all. Please try to get along, for My sake. I created each of you
Different in some way. It would be too boring if you were all identical.
Please, know I love each of your differences.

10. LOVE YOURSELF
As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself? You were created by me
for one reason only -- to be loved, and to love in return. I am a God of
Love. Love Me. Love your neighbors. But also love yourself. It makes My
heart ache when I see you so angry with yourself when things go wrong. You
are very precious to Me. Don't ever forget that! With all my heart, I love
YOU!

GOD
