RED - Breathe Into Me

MESSAGE "Lead Me On"



Matthew 28:20b  "...lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."

*******

"When one is accustomed to rejection, abandonment, and loneliness, (then) true loyalty is extremely difficult to accept and believe.
This is where trust and faith come in.
When one has never felt lasting devotion and love, (then) the reality of loyalty is often initially disbelieved (unbelieved).

-pause-

When one has been regularly betrayed and offended by a brother, (then) they are prone to become hardened in their emotions.
(brother = either familial relative or spiritual)

***

When one has been (the) subject of cruel, malicious, lies and gossip, (then) they are less apt to receive warm, considerate, displays of concern and compassion.

When one has been consistently neglected, ignored, and left out ... (then)  they have special trauma and anxiety in social settings ... and any relational situations.
Many who are hurt viciously withdraw -- and will accept no love.

(Writer's note:  They may *withdraw* into alcohol, drugs, food, isolation, anger, over-working, non-personal sexual acts, promiscuity, pornography, etc.)

***

But!  Have you not heard? I AM the Friend that sticks closer than a brother!  I am the Friend of the friendless!
I am the One who will listen ... who is your confidante.
I am never too busy for you ... I am more than able to care for each of My children individually.

I am all-seeing:  omniscient.  I am intricately involved in each of your lives!
I will NEVER leave you! I will NEVER abandon you!
I love you! I love you!

*****

You need not feel ashamed or guilty to be happy!
So many of you have been put down by family, peers, churches, and society.

Many of you have been dragged through the mud ... and have been left to die.
In response, some have died.
(To die =  in various ways ... physically, spiritually, emotionally)

Many have adopted defensive personalities, and destructive lifestyles .... but many have just shut down.
Their minds have been ripped apart by Satan, the world's coldness, and (then, ultimately) ... their own deception.)

But! I have come to seek and to save that which was lost ... that which is lost!  I seek My lost sheep ... I'm calling out for My little hurt lambs ... my once-tender children , that have (been) brutally attacked and maimed.

Listen, My precious lambs ... my cherished ones ... I am leading you out!  I am creating a narrow path for you ... to escape (from) the snares of destruction.  I am pulling you up and out of the miry clay!

*****

I am untangling the ropes and chains that have been strangling you.  I am healing eyesight ... for you to see your way out (more) clearly.

I am sharpening your hearing ... so that you can (more) easily identify My voice!
(For there are many voices, many 'shepherds' -- that desire to destroy you ... and to destroy Me.)

I am (also) strengthening legs and feet ... so that you may walk and run skillfully and ably ... you will be enabled to confidently follow Me as I lead!

Most important:  I am giving new hearts ... that you may more readily accept and feel My love!  My heart will become your heart!

*****

As you continue to follow Me ... I will become more and more familiar and real to you ... to EACH of you!  I am the Chief Shepherd:  the shepherd of your souls!

A true, devoted, loving Shepherd will never, NEVER, leave His sheep;  His flock.  He will give his life for the flock.  He will put Himself between the wolf, the beast, the enemy ... and the sheep.  He leads them ... and constantly sees to their safety.  They are well-fed, watered, and sheltered from  harm.

Come in to My fold ... if you are straying ... come back to Me and My fold ... your fold!"

To Bring You Back By Paul Alan





Are you thirsty 
Standing in the rain? 
Not sure where you are 
Or how you lost your way? 
Are you drowning 
In some bar outside of town? 
Searching for something given not found? 
A crowd of people 
But totally alone? 
At the front door 
But worlds away from home? 

Light up the nights last regret and 
Burn your only safety net 
Step to the edge 
It's such a long way down 

I left the ninety-nine to find the one 
And you're the one 
I walked a thousand miles 
In this desert sun 
Only to bring you back 
Only to bring you back 

Are you tired 
Of chasing the wind under water? 
Do you aspire to breath again? 
Are you dying? 
Is that the best that you can do? 
Cause you can't find your place 
In a world that wasn't meant for you? 

Hello it's Me 
I couldn't sleep 
I was just counting sheep 
And I'm missing you, 
Hello it's Me 
I couldn't sleep 
I was just counting sheep.
