Let My love be what defines you—not the actions of others, nor their opinions of you. You are the apple of My eye and the delight of My heart. You have stolen My heart, My sister, My bride; you have stolen My heart with one glance of your eyes (Song of Songs 4:9).
Your desire to please the Father blesses Me. Keep doing good, and do not withhold good from others when it is your power to act (Proverbs 3:27). Leave all of the results to Me, and when you give, give unto Me. But when you give . . . do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you (Matthew 6:3-4).
You will be known by your love (John 13:35). Continue to love the unlovely, and honor others, even when they do not show you honor in return. Encourage the downtrodden, feed the hungry. If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday (Isaiah 58:10).
Keep walking down the path that I have called you to. Do not look to the right or to the left. Know that you are advancing My Kingdom, bringing light into the darkness. Continue to move forward, even on the days that it feels difficult, and throw off every weight that would so easily entangle you (Hebrews 12:1). I am well pleased with you, dear one. Run your race well, and press on toward the goal to win the prize for which I have called you heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:14).

Thank you. I needed this today – it fills out so beautifully some words from the Lord that I journaled this morning.
You’re welcome. God bless!
