"You are My special treasure. Special ... what does it mean? To Me, it means extraordinary, rare, chosen, desired, cherished, sought-after, hand-picked, original, valued, beloved.
You are all of these to Me. You are much loved. I have seen your devotion to Me, despite seemingly insurmountable circumstances.
You have sought Me, as I have sought you. I am a rewarder of those who diligently seek Me ... and you fit into that category!
Many afflictions, tests, trials, hardships, sicknesses, troubles, and predicaments have hindered your life with Me ... but still, you press on! I am very interested , and keenly involved with those who travel such adverse routes to find Me.
As an explorer, adventurer, or discoverer ... such are My sheep that scale the treacherous slopes in search of Me. I am leading you ... and I love those who love Me ... especially those who choose to follow Me.
Continue your journey ... for I am close to you always. My voice - the Shepherd's voice - will continue to lead you on.
I your Shepherd, wait for each one of you, to make it securely into My eternal fold."
