life can never be the same

"You need Me.  I need you.  My broken world needs you.  Many weary troubled heart needs you.  Many a troubled heart will be gladdened by you, drawn nearer to Me by you both.  Health--Peace--Joy--Patience--Endurance, they all come from contact with Me."

"You will conquer.  Do not fear changes.  You can never fear changes when I, your Lord, change not.  Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.  I am beside you.  Steadfastness, unchangingness, come to you, too, as you dwell with Me.  Rest in Me.  As breathing rightly, from being a matter of careful practice, becomes a habit, unconsciously, yet rightly performed, so if you regularly practice this getting back into My Presence, when the slightest feeling of unrest disturbs your perfect calm and harmony, so this, too, will become a habit, and you will grow to live in that perfect consciousness of My Presence, and perfect calm and harmony will be yours.  ... You are asking both of you to be not as hundreds of My followers, nay as many, many thousands, but to be even as those who reflect Me in all they say and do and are.  So, My dear children, take this training, not as harsh, but as the tender loving answer to your petition.  Life can never be the same again for either of you.  Once you have drunk of the wine of My giving, the Life Eternal, all the earth's attempts to quench your thirst will fail."

-God Calling, April 19 &21
