What I think God would say to the world today.

To my Dearest Sons, and Dearest Daughters,

   I love you. I cannot express in words how much I love you, so I gave you a beautiful Earth to live on. I gave you a mortal life to help teach you, because I love you and I want you to learn to take care of yourselves and each other. I want you to be as happy as I am, and that means better understanding yourselves and your brothers and sisters.


   I think about you every day. I think about you every moment of every day. I can do that where I live--it's not hard. I literally have hours to spend with each and every one of you for every second that passes in your life. It's not magic, it's just the way things work. I look upon you each day, and I see your joys and your pains.


   Many of you are wondering why I've let the world be in the state its in. This is not an easy thing to answer, but I'll do the best that I can to put it in words you understand. You are not slaves. You are not obligated to do anything, whether for good or for bad. This is essential for you to receive all the blessings I want to give you. If you don't have this freedom now, you won't understand how wonderful you truly are, nor how amazing you'll become.


   This means that many of you will get hurt. I'm not going to stop that. I see beyond death, and I know that it's just a brief passing onto the next stage of your development.


   I do not actively control everything that goes on in the Earth, but I am ever aware of it. I am a God of wrath, and of mercy. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make you happy, including hurting you for a time. You're well aware that your bodies break down, and sometimes a skilled surgeon needs to cut into them so they'll heal properly. I am the Surgeon of your spiritual and emotional wounds. If I do hurt any of you, then I do so carefully, and with my ancient wisdom and profound love. If you so chose, I will always be present to help guide and expedite the healing process. If you don't want My help, then I will cry tears of sorrow, but respect your decision.


   I have taught your fathers and your mothers in days past, and I am still teaching today. My words were of great value to mankind in times past, and today you can use them to better understand My voice. I am always whispering to you in your thoughts and in your hearts. I only speak in a whisper out of reverence and respect towards you. I have not changed, and I will not change, but I will always play the role that you need me to play to make you better.


   Please, talk to me. I'm listening. I'm real. I'm here. I sent my Son to give his mortal life to you, and I give you my immortal life each and every day. So great is my love for you that I have not words to express it, so I give you what I can and what I know to be of the greatest value. I'm happy to teach you whatever it is you want to know. I did not idly have my Son say, "Ask and ye shall receive." If you need encouragement, or enlightenment, or just guidance, ask me, and I'll find a way to get it to you, and I'll do so in a way that you'll recognize.


   Please, be kind to your brothers and sisters. They struggle more than you know. They need your help, and many of you need theirs. I didn't send you to this life of experience (and often hardship) alone. I'm your Father, and I'm your family. Your family is here to help.


   There are spirits and people who want to hurt you. You know this, and you hear them everyday. They try to tell you that you're less than what you are. You don't need to listen, and you can ask them to leave. If you need help overcoming them, just kneel down and pray, and I'll either calm the sea, or help you weather the storm.


   I can do anything that needs to be done, but I expect you to do everything you can first. How else will you grow to be more like me? I want you to understand, I want each and everyone of you to be happy even as I am!


   You are my child. From my own flesh did I fashion you. You are meant to become like me. You have a long way to go, and the road will not be easy, but I'm with you every step of the way. Choose to move forward with faith, and I'll will guard and guide your every step. Above all, repent! Turn unto Me, and I will fill your soul with My pure love and and joy. I look forward to seeing you again soon.


Sincerely,

Your Heavenly Father

At least, what I think He'd want to say.

I don't expect much more to ever be posted on this blog, and I'm largely just posting this to share it with some particular friends....
