You need to put Me first. You are too busy for Me, and your busyness will be your destruction if you do not make Me your first priority again. It saddens me how you try to count your 2-second rushed prayer as sufficient time spent with Me, when you willingly work 8, sometimes 12 hours a day. All I want is to spend time with you, My child. Turn to Me. When you come to Me, you find renewed strength to deal with everything that is on your plate. You can’t do this by yourself. You aren’t strong enough, Daughter. Let Me help you. Let Me be your strength. Let Me be your guide.  I know that you are used to doing life alone or without much help, but those days are over. I am introducing you to a better, easier way: Me. I am your guide. I am your peace. I am your wisdom. I am everything that you need. Just let me help you. As badly as I want to help you, I can’t..I won’t force myself on you, but the sooner you allow Me to help you, the sooner you’ll experience and live in my peace. Give Me My rightful place on the throne of your heart again, Daughter. I desire so much for you, but you are withholding My strong hand because you have shifted your focus from Me to what’s around you and even to your own strength. If you would rather Me to not help you,that’s fine because I gave you the power to choose, but I would love for you to make the right choice. Choose Me today, beloved. Choose me and deny the things that you put before Me. Once you do that, I’ll begin to strengthen you and elevate you to the place that I desire you to be in. Don’t be nervous about what is expected of you in that place. Just know that I am here with you every step of the way. My child, putting Me first may seem difficult at first, but only because you are still desiring the world and the very thing that you need to let go. Holding on isn’t always the best thing to do. It may be hard to let go, but holding on to something I tell you to let go of makes it harder for you to receive of Me and for you to trust Me. Let it go. Trust Me.  Have I ever fallen short of My delivery? No, and I will not begin with you. You are My most prized creation, Daughter, and I plan to give you the absolute best I have, but you have to submit to My way, My teaching, My voice. Listen as I speak to you, as I guide you. I promise, I’m guiding down the path of life and righteousness. I am leading you to the fulfillment of My purpose for your life. All you have to do is put Me first. Remember,there is a reward in obedience. I love you now and forever. You are Mine always. ♥
