Plow through. Sometimes you simply have to plow through obstacles. Yes, be a snow plow and keep going. Persist.
Because you have a hard time doesn’t have to mean you’d better stop. You may well be barking up the right tree. Don’t consider what you see as lack of support as a signal to stop. It may well be a signal to keep going, to keep going through rain and snow and floods and hurricanes, whatever the world throws at you.
The Earth persists. You are a microcosm of the Earth. Earth doesn’t stop because of obstacles. The world keeps spinning, and so must you. This world which sometimes seems to hamper you, plows through.
Certainly, there is a reason for everything, yet you don’t know what the reason or reasons are. You can only guess.
In general, when you find life tough, you are being given an opportunity to become stronger. In a way, it is for you to become more committed to your service to Me. Even when, wherever you turn, you are given no for an answer, or later for an answer, or a little pat on the head, for an answer, you can keep going onward and upward.
The key for you may well be to persist. You were in on a venture from the beginning and so you continue. If it is a business venture of your dreams, stay with it. Give it a good shot. If it is a spiritual venture for Me, stay with it. Most especially, when it is a venture for Me, persist and persist. If you are taking singing lessons and this is important to you, you keep learning to sing. You carry through.
We are speaking of something you initiate with your whole heart and soul.
It’s fine to try something out. You don’t have to give your whole life to something. I am speaking about when you have made a contract with yourself and/or Me. You weren’t trying something out. You are here for it, heart and soul. It isn’t for you to turn away from yourself. Yet this is not to say you must continue as if you were a mule set on a path with no choice. There is value in staying on a path. This doesn’t mean that you are locked in regardless.
The point I want to make is that life is not for the weak-kneed. You don’t want your life to be led by other’s actions or non-actions. You are sailing your own ship. No one else can.
Who is going to lead you, dear ones? I will lead you.
When the world is cheerless, then you must cheer yourself on. It may no longer be possible to depend upon anyone but you — and Me.
If a prisoner can spend years digging a hole with his fingernails to escape prison and stick to it, surely you can stick to your dreams, certainly when they are Mine.
Even if you are the only one who gives a hoot for your dream, you can fulfill your dream. Even when no one else will, it is up to you now. You know by now, it is not for you to go by what nay-sayers have to say. It is easy to be a nay-sayer. Be your own Yea-sayer.
You do what you do because it is yours to do. Your success could be to continue no matter what the climate and the weather.
By persisting, I mean taking the tiller of your ship and venturing further. You have a target in mind that is yours to do, and so you do it. You threw your ego away a long time ago, and now you are beyond nicks and scratches.
Let no one and nothing hold you back. You are for bigger than yourself. You work for Me. You have found your destiny, and there is nothing for you to do but to follow it. Follow it now.
