One Day

Oscar, I have been thinking about you today. Because I feel you need to be with your family, even if it is for the shortest leave that can be granted. You have behaved well for such a long time. You never misbehave, you are like a lamb, tame, accepting count your blessings Oscar of having a family that is behind you and which love you like a diamond. Try not to stress “we are all here” Those are the words said by men of GodApostle Paul while they were thrown into prison for preaching word of God.. The son of God opened the prison strong doors to show his power over our earthly items. The men of God did not run away because they loved God and trusted Him. One day Oscar you will be home and read these messages.

It Has Been Long

We pray for you to keep “hope” things are going to be all right for you. I pray to my God that those that are in power may be touched by the finger of God, our Heavenly Father to think about you. It has been long. You deserve a move from prison. From 24 hour watch. You don’t need that now. You need few minutes with your siblings and family. I am praying for this. We love you Oscar, we discuss about you, we hope for the best. You are still young you have a great future in front of you. God is going to be with you. You are going to flourish as you had before and despite your status you remained humble as you are. Yes you are at a wrong place but you will leave that place and be with your family. God loves you Oscar,we love you. we think about you and talk about you.

Rest with Me

Oscar, some days are long and tough. So stop and rest with Me for a while. Don’t worry about what’s ahead. Don’t think about the past or the future. Just focus on right here and right now – with Me.

I created time to protect you. Because I am timeless, I can see your entire life from beginning to end – all at the same time. But I knew that you couldn’t bear to see your whole life all at once. So I created time to hide your future from you, to protect you.

You can do nothing about the past, so just let it go. You cannot know the future, so put it aside. Meet Me here and now – in this moment of time. TRUST that I am with you, watching over you wherever you go.

The Spirit of Hope

Wherefore must the loved ones of God, laboriously, with the waters of their striving, tend and nourish and foster his tree of hope. In whatsoever land they dwell, let them with a whole heart befriend and be companions to those who are either close to them, or far removed. Let them, with qualities like unto those of heaven, promote the institutions and the religion of God. Let them never lose heart, never be despondent, never feel afflicted. The more antagonism they meet, the more let them show their own good faith; the more torments and calamities they have to face, the more generously let them pass round the bounteous cup. Such is the spirit which will become the life of the world, such is the spreading light at its heart ….

Bahai Writings on hope

Hope: Heather

Hope: Guardian of the Soul

If faith is the substance of things hoped for, and evidence of things unseen; then hope is surely sustenance for the soul. Nurturing, edifying, lifeblood of the spirit.
With hope we are nourished, strengthened and sustained by the things we are sure of. Love, compassion, forgiveness, belief. Elemental, life preserving, manna from heaven.
Hope softens the gnawing hunger for things yet longed for; justice, mercy and understanding. Thirst assuaged by the reassurance of things foreshadowed and the blessed certainty of Charity and Grace.
Hope is the covering of cloud by day, the fire to illumine the night, and the still small voice of calm that calls and inspires through a wilderness of pain and uncertainty, on towards a place of promise and joy.
Hope is protector and guardian of the soul, while faith brings us home; to a place and a future where healing and happiness are assured, and peace, blessed peace, will reign eternal.
Oscar, hope is an ever present reminder of your humanity, your self-worth, validation of your place in this world; a life treasured by the One who matters and those who care, and a future worth fighting for. May God continue to bless you, keep you, and preserve in you the hope, faith and love you need to sustain you on your journey home.

Much love, Heather
