"Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency." -Maya Angelou
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
King James Version (KJV) by Public Domain
WISDOM OF NEIL VERILLION
LAYERS OF REVELATION & UNDERSTANDING AVAILABLE TO YOU
I am bringing about greater clarity to the vision for your life and circumstances. I am continuing to confirm my plans for you. And today I am bringing additional clarity to what's already been set before you.
For there are layers upon layers of revelation and understanding available to you. So I am opening this door to you today, even right now this very moment.
And as you receive greater insight to the plans I've given you already, your heart and mind will understand. And with this understanding you're going to have so much more confidence. You're going to understand timing better, and you're going to understand purpose better. You're going to have a greater perspective, and you'll be able to comprehend and appreciate your present position within your individual process too.
You're going to not only have more understanding, but you're going to begin to possess greater resolve too. For as your heart is alive, you're going to be able to whether the storms and overcome the hardship and pitfall of doubt trying to steal, kill, and destroy that hope and vision planted within you. So with this understanding, and with this greater resolve, you're going to be able to move forward faster, with stability, and you're going to have more peace as you do.
Continue to put your trust in me, and allow my hand to guide and direct your circumstances and the timing. For my hand is already at work, making things happening, initiating all the shifts, tweaks, and adjustments needed proper alignment at the right time. I've already synchronized many things, and I will not lose sight of important details, or become forgetful about what needs to be accomplished.
So let go of your performance mentality, as if you are improving the plans already I've already set in motion. And instead, sit back and enjoy the beauty of it all. And enjoy watching and cooperating with it all as events, circumstances, pressures, and trends continue to unfold, layer after layer, day after day. And in doing so you will be lightening your load, and taking up my yolk, rather than carrying those burdens for yourself.
Allow yourself to trust, and move forward, not looking back. Move forward in hope, in faith and trust, believing, and you will see it all come to pass in the due course of its appointed time.

My plans for you have not altered. They've not changed. They've not wavered. They've not diminished. So continue to hold tight to what I've already given you, and fan into the flame that fire for the vision within you. For I gave you this vision in advance to help guide you, to help sustain you, to help you endure and persevere.
So take a moment to encourage yourself. Remember my still, small voice that has already spoken to you, has already watered that seed within you that has now begun to take root. Remember your joy, hope, and enthusiasm the same as the day that spark first started. For the delay has surprised you.
Discontent AND ITS Civilizations
I wonder if reading, for me, is an attempt to recognize who and what are not inferno, and if the love I sometimes feel is the glimmer of this recognition.
I wonder if that is the case for many of us. Perhaps, in the widespread of longing for likable characters, there is this, a desire, through fiction, for contact with what we've armored ourselves against in the rest of our lives, a desire to be reminded that it's possible to open our eyes, to see, to recognize our solitude --and at the same time to not be entirely alone.
Discontent AND ITS Civilizations
Chapter 7: Are we too concerned that characters be "Likable"?
