The Enduring Journey: This World Is Not My Home

December 13, 1999
(Father speaking)
This world is not your home. You are just passing through. As you pass through trusting and depending on Me you will lead others to go down that path with Me. Always stay open to the leading of My Spirit. Always stay open to My Word. Listen to My voice and hear what I say and do what I say. You have and are doing well in hearing. Just do not ever close your ears to My voice. You have heard My voice enough to know but always test to be sure. It is with great joy that I walk with you daily. You are precious children whom I love greatly. Keep trusting and believing. I am bringing all together for My perfect will to be accomplished. The time is now for healing, restoration and joy. I am your God. You are My people. Keep telling all I send you to and all you meet what I am doing. The boldness has grown within you and you are now greater witnesses than you were before. Step out in this world for Me. Be available at any point to share the good news of My love, grace and provision. Peace is yours because you have believed. Joy is yours because you dare to believe. Healing is yours because you know the healer.

(Karen speaking)
Lord, every day with You is sweeter than the day before. This world is not our home, thank You, Lord, as we look to eternity with You. Our whole focus has changed in these last months. We are learning to open our hand and let go all that seemed dear to lay hold of Jesus who is the dearest thing we could ever desire.

(Father speaking)
You are getting the message, My child. You are learning the most precious gift that can be given this Christmas is Jesus, His love and His Word. I love you, Charley and Karen. Just keep your eyes focused on Me so that I am all you see. I will send you to love, encourage and pray for many as long as you always see Me first. Stay on your face and in My Word. It is a wonderful journey we are on together. You are loved by many because you love many. You are always willing to love. Stay free in Me.

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 Corinthians 5:1
