You are Here for a Reason

April 29, 2020

There might have been days when you jumped out of your bed panicky, sweaty and tired, your mind running over the question “Why am I here?” The question keeps playing in my head over and over again until when I looked into the skies, at all the birds soaring high, little bothering that they would die the next day. I looked at the lilies of the field dancing to the music of the wind, extremely cheerful, spreading happiness and completely ignorant that they will die that evening. My eyes led me to every detail around me, the small creatures, animals and birds. They were happy and unlike me, they did not moan over why they were even alive.

I knew it immediately that there had to be a reason for this long and dreaded journey through the wilderness. I had a confidence-building in me that I could go on till I reached the other side of the shore.

Life can hit you hard at times and knock you out but all you have to remember to do is get back on your feet and fight. It is hard when you strive to achieve but you fail, you try harder each day to climb up the ladder of life but slide down further instead. It is extremely hard when you try to get up, but life blows you down every time. It is hard as it sounds but it is worth it when you have finally fought back and risen to your feet. Very often in this process of failure, with all the falling to the ground and injury to your soul you are exhausted, you do not want to move anymore. You are drained of your energy and willing to give up this fight and when you have made up your mind to quit you forget the fact that your dreams are a little further away. Failure and exhaustion are definitely more powerful than anything else in the world all the terrible pain and sorrows we have to face. It can ruin confidence and fall on your way like a huge tree obstructing you from walking on and achieving. But remember when you are tired you should relax, stop and look around you.

Look at the birds of the sky how they soar high against the mighty minds, the fish in the sea how they swim hard against the current, the flowers in the fields how they sway and stand still against the blows of the wind. These are little things of nature and when they have succeeded in surviving you can too. You can fight back the current, fly against the might of the winds and survive every blow of the winds and life. You are stronger than these little creatures and definitely more powerful but very often when life hits us hard we lose ourselves and tend to forget that we are here for a purpose despite all the terrible pain and sorrows we have to face.

You never know the worth that you hold in the universe that you reside in, your existence is important and there is a reason behind what you are, who you are and why you are here. Most of us fail to even think about this fact that we are here for a reason, a reason that we would realize maybe ten years down the lane.

Probably you are feeling down, devastated and no point in your existence but you have no idea what is at the corner of the road for you. You are probably walking down a plain, empty street with the lights out, no single soul walking with you and street lamp all broken and fallen on your way but at the far corner of your street, you will see light, more people and you will know that your journey was not a mere waste after all. You never know but a little down the road and you might be the light and ray of hope to many thousands of people, a helping hand to hundreds of people and confidence and motivation to hundreds of people to move on and down.

When God created you He did have a plan for you, he did see a future in you, a hope through you for many other people. You are just a normal person but God has a plan for you and He is not going to stop until He sees you fulfilling the reason with which He sent you down on earth. This reason varies among people of all tribes, nations, lands, languages and regions. While you are here to spread love to people, I am here to spread positivity and yet another person is simply here because he spreads happiness and brings a cheer on people’s faces. It is different but it is worth it and it is important. You never know what is in store for you bit all you have to do is press on, walk as long as you can. Make sure that with each passing day, you spread love, happiness and joy to the people around you. You are indeed a little person in this vast, huge world but your presence can spread a lot of fragrance to the people around you. Consider the lilies of the field, they are small, timid and short-lived yet they spread fragrance to every soul passing by, transforming weary hearts into joy and teary eyes into glowing ones.

You are more than anything else in the world!

Remember you are God’s best creation and He has not sent you down to earth because He had to but with a purpose, a reason you will ever realize until you turn around the corner.

Believe. Press on. You are here for a reason.

    God The Father on lack of trust and knowledge

    February 18, 2020

    Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: "I am the Eternal Now - Father and Creator of the Universe. Everything is formed by My Hand. Every weather pattern, every season, all of Creation is by My design and has a Divine Purpose according to My Will. There is nothing that exists or happens that escapes My Will - Permitting or Ordaining Will. Every natural resource is My Provision. If I can so obviously care for all of nature - the sky - the seas and all of My Creation, how is it so few trust Me and consult Me in their plans?"

    "This lack of trust comes from lack of knowledge of Me and lack of love for Me which is the basis of all trust. Every living thing, every creature of earth deserves My undivided attention. Understand then, you, My children, have no problem which is too small to bring to Me. Relate to Me as your Loving Father Who cares for you and every aspect of your life. So many see Me only as a stern judge and never allow themselves to experience the warmth and caring of My Love. So, My purpose in speaking here* to this Messenger** is to reconcile all people and all nations to My Paternal Heart and to My Paternal Love."

    Read Matthew 10:29-32+

    Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. So every one who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven;
