The Father says today, be correctable. The chastening I give is proof that you are My beloved child that
I will never neglect or abandon. No chastening is pleasant, but in the end as you yield to My correction, blessing will be the result and answers will come that you have been waiting for. I know your weaknesses, says God, and I am aware of every point of vulnerability
that the enemy tries to take advantage of in your character. Those things that you cannot change and feel powerless to do differently are the very areas in your life that My grace is more fully poured out. I have shown you mercy and will continue to have mercy
upon you until every last vestige of the past no longer haunts you and you walk free from all the bondage of darkness that has held you back.
This is the season of returning, says God. In returning to Me in areas of your heart where estrangement
crept in, I will now flood with My light and the fullness of My love. I love you because I love you because I love you. Unending love and ceaseless mercy are all I have to show you. When tears come, and the breakers of sorrow overwhelm your soul in waves of
regret, know that I am there to comfort and encourage you. When your detractors and critics point the finger and say you are just getting what you had coming to you, I will sweep them away with a wave of My hand and encompass you with My embrace and surround
you with My unearned favor. It's who I AM and what I do, says the Father, and My promise to you is that they will be ashamed suddenly, but you will never be put to shame, for your trust is in Me.
