(This is a personal message that was given to Barbra just prior to Easter several years ago.)
My daughter, I have worked your entire life without you even knowing to prepare you for the coming events. You might not feel prepared, but when the time comes, you will be. For now, hold on to your horses. (Barbra own horses.) You see? I do have a sense of humor. You must keep receiving from Me and passing Me along to everyone I bring you in relationship with. I know your fear of man, My love, and I purposely created you this way, and someday you will be shown why, for what seems a weakness now, will serve My purpose in a way that you cannot see right now. Every detail of your life is serving to prepare you, My love, for what will be required of you in this time that you’ve been placed in. Do not forget that. My love for you is perfect, and you must remember that as well. Keep your focus on Me, and I will help you to continue to grow. You don’t always hear from Me the way that you would want to, but that is purposeful as well. When true reality floods your mind, you will look back and understand the whys of all of your failures. You will understand the complete purpose of Me putting you here and now, and your life will make perfect sense to you. Your heart has already risen from the ashes, My daughter, and though it has physical and emotional scars (because Barbra has endured two heart surgeries), you will see the perfection of My whole plan for you. You don’t realize it, but people do see My light through you. I know that you always feel slightly awkward and different, but this is not your home. I’ve given you exactly what I could for you to remain growing. I’ve put you always where I wanted you for you to be learning and preparing for your jobs to come. You will be amazed when you look back and see how I turned all of your bad into My good. Keep marching forward now, My daughter. Continue to prepare for battle. Keep your armor on and your heart prepared for anything, for as darkness falls, your light will continue to shine. You still have growing to do, My love, and I will tend to you with My “Son” light. My child, I love you with My most powerful and perfect love. I have the most perfect plans for you. My daughter, continue in your patience. You will not always be disappointed, My love, but when Easter comes and goes uneventful, I know there will be a little disappointment in your heart. I see you longing to come home to Me, for I am your true love. I see your heart, My daughter, no matter what your failures. I see your heart. You are charged now with spreading My love, My child. I weave intricate plans into your relationships that you can’t see now, but My plans will bear great fruit. I’ve worked in you, My daughter, to increase your love and patience and kindness, and to remove some of your selfish tendencies. Think of who you’ve become. I am a Father very proud of My child as I have worked these changes as you have allowed. I need willing vessels, My love, and you allowing for Me to change you from the inside out has been the key. You asked Me to be a warrior for Me, and though you feel weak and unprepared, that is what I will make you. All things in your life have a purpose, My child, all things.
