There are many distractions on your path, My child. Learn to ignore what is not of Me, that you may come up higher, that you may dwell closer to Me, bask in My Presence, receive more of My gifts.
The way is not difficult, but it requires focus. Focusing on what is not of the world, focusing on what I did for you.
You are each very precious to Me, and I long for all My children to be here with Me. Soon you will be.
Focus on Me and stay on the righteous path. I will make you so glad you did – in My Presence, there is fullness of joy.
(I saw in the spirit a man walking, alongside Jesus, and they were talking. Then the man was distracted by a beautiful flower bush on the roadside, and he stopped to admire it. Jesus kept on walking, and speaking. When the man turned back to the path, Jesus was no longer in his sight. I think what I was shown means that God is always on the move, and we must also keep moving.)
Psalm 16:11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
