Teacher The Beloved.
Subject: “Leave All Your Burdens with Me.”
Message received by Lytske.
The Beloved: “Never underestimate your potential in matters spiritual. You are much more capable than you realize. Really now, you have not even left the starting gate on your long trek to Paradise. In this earth-life you are merely laying the foundations of sincerity, faith and trust.
Consider yourself to be in a training camp where all intensive training hurts. It is not always easy and you know very well how often you came close to quitting, then to get your ’second wind’ spurring you on for yet another ‘mile’.
So, you learned that there are layers upon layers of endurance waiting to be discovered and tapped into. With each layer your faith and confidence in Me, your trainer, grows a little stronger until one day you realize that all the exercise, all the struggle, has given you the strength to carry on. Then you will be there to encourage others who are running the good race of faith beside you, also with faltering steps.
No one is an island unto him-or herself, and in togetherness you give each other the inspiration and strength to carry on, to run the good race. It is a race of hope, of faith, of trust and you learn to love one another the way your Master Jesus taught you, to see this life with the long- range vision of eternity.
There are invisible runners beside you to encourage you, but never forget that I, the greatest Trainer of all, lives right inside you to place hurdles in your path, but only because I have designed your training ground to get the best performance out of you.
I expect nothing less than the ultimate in perfection after the long race of the ages is run and you and I, as one, receive the greatest blessing from the Creator on Paradise. How is that for encouragement! Is it enough to carry on for yet another mile?
Meanwhile, travel light and leave your burdens with Me, so your race will be run quite effortlessly.”
