Guidelines from God

Effective Immediately,
Please be aware that there are changes YOU need
To make in YOUR life. These changes need to be 
Completed in order that I may fulfill My promises 
To you to grant you peace, joy and happiness in
This life. I apologize for any inconvenience,
But after all that I am doing, this seems very
Little to ask of you. Please, follow
These 10 guidelines: 
Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit
And worry. Have you forgotten that I am here 
To take all your burdens and carry them for you? 
Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little
Thing that comes your way? 

Something needs done or taken care of. Put it 
On the list. No, not YOUR list. Put it on MY 
To-do-list. Let ME be the one to take care 
Of the problem. I can’t help you until you turn
It over to Me. And although My to-do-list 
Is long, I am after all… God. I can take care 
Of anything you put into My hands. In fact, 
If the truth were ever really known, I take 
Care of a lot of things for you that you never
Even realize. 

Once you’ve given your burdens to Me,
Quit trying to take them back. Trust in 
Me. Have the faith that I will take care of 
All your needs, your problems and your trials.
Problems with the kids? Put them on My list. 
Problem with finances? Put it on My list 
Problems with your emotional roller coaster ?
For My sake, put it on My list. I want to 
Help you. All you have to do is ask. 

Don’t wake up one morning and say, 
‘Well, I’m feeling much stronger now, I think 
I can handle it from here.’ Why do you think
You are feeling stronger now? It’s simple. 
You gave Me your burdens and I’m taking 
Care of them. I also renew your strength
And cover you in my peace. Don’t you 
Know that if I give you these problems back,
You will be right back where you started? 
Leave them with Me and forget about
Them. Just let Me do my job. 

I want you to forget a lot of things.
Forget what was making you crazy.
Forget the worry and the fretting because 
You know I’m in control. But there’s one
Thing I pray you never forget. Please, don’t
Forget to talk to Me – OFTEN! I love YOU! 
I want to hear your voice. I want you to 
Include Me in on the things going on in your life. 
I want to hear you talk about your friends 
And family. Prayer is simply you having
A conversation with Me. I want to be your
Dearest friend. 

I see a lot of things from up here that you 
Can’t see from where you are. Have faith in
Me that I know what I’m doing. Trust Me;
You wouldn’t want the view from My eyes.
I will continue to care for you, watch over you, 
And meet your needs. You only have to trust Me.
Although I have a much bigger task than you,
It seems as if you have so much trouble just 
Doing your simple part. How hard can trust be? 

You were taught to share when you were 
Only two years old. When did you forget? 
That rule still applies. Share with those who are 
Less fortunate than you. Share your joy with
Those who need encouragement. Share your 
Laughter with those who haven’t heard any in
Such a long time. Share your tears with those 
Who have forgotten how to cry. Share your faith 
With those who have none. 

I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime 
You could have so many diverse experiences.
You grow from a child to an adult, have children, 
Change jobs many times, learn many trades,
Travel to so many places, meet thousands
Of people, and experience so much. How can
You be so impatient then when it takes Me 
A little longer than you expect to handle 
Something on My to-do-list? Trust in My 
Timing, for My timing is perfect. Just 
Because I created the entire universe in
Only six days, everyone thinks I should 
Always rush, rush, rush. 

Be kind to others, for I love them just 
As much as I love you. They may not dress 
like you, or talk like you, or live the same way
you do, but I still love you all. Please try 
to get along, for My sake. I created each 
of you different in some way. It would be 
too boring if you were all identical. 
Please, know I love each of your differences. 

As much as I love you, how can you not
love yourself? You were created by me for
one reason only — to be loved, and to love
in return. I am a God of Love. Love Me.
Love your neighbors. But also love yourself. 
It makes My heart ache when I see you 
so angry with yourself when things go 
wrong. You are very precious to me.
Don’t ever forget…… 

Note: I received this from a friend and I have
no idea who wrote it, but I was so touched
by it, that I had to share it with you. 
I hope that you will be blessed by
it and will share it with others. 

Touch someone with your love. 
Rather than focus upon the thorns of life, 
smell the roses and count your blessings! 

God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other; passing on to others God’s many blessings. ~ I Peter 4:10 (LB)
