alive and without major disruptions

As things are just going a little uphill, you tend to put your confidence more in yourself and the circumstances than Me, but
thats a dangerous thing to do, because its pretty much an illusion. Ive got to be your strength and what you rely on,
otherwise youll be just as sunk as anyone else who puts their trust in the flesh. Be glad Im saving you from that fate by
keeping you close to Me by keeping you down to the ground of that reality when your mind and attitude are about to take
off into the clouds again (2013:21)

up in your stumbling. (2013:37)

your circumstances, and you might get there! (2013:58)
If you would draw close to Me the way you should, you would also learn how to love Me and to be loved by Me the way you
should. Its a matter of taking the time and letting all other matters and affairs fade into the background, forsaking them all
for Me and letting Me become the paramount Object of your focus and attention. (2013:59)

have a greater World ready to understand and welcome you after this life is over. (2014:61)

When the world was looking too good for you to prepare for My coming, or the coming of the AC before that, or whatever
crisis, there wasnt much motivation that made you get closer to Me
So, letting the world become the world again, the way you remembered some of it, just reminds you theres something
better waiting for you and drives you back closer to Me.

dangers that could snap up on you. (2014:174)

closer to the way I want things to be for My followers, than the opposite, where folks are strong in their own flesh and
investing it all into their efforts in earning money (2015:138)

Sometimes I allow My followers and believers to go through hard times even harder ones than they thought they were
