Written by Mother Datha Dees on January 9, 2013, in a cold, dimly lit room in Pakistan, given to me as I was praying for all of you:
There, all gathered together, eight in total. The faithful family, God has called chosen. Not chosen by their choice, but chosen before the foundation of the world. A patient God, creator of all, careful and uniquely designing each DNA pattern to fit for this time in His plan.
A plan that none suspected, but all have been shaped, to fit together in the puzzle of His Master Plan.
At times, thoughts of weakness seep into the corners of their minds; minds trained and set on Jesus Christ’s plan. It is then, the strength of training and His Words ring clear, “…not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord.”
The family of eight, stands tall and strong, in my eyes today. Weary in their bodies, but strong in their spirits.
Thanks to all eight of you, large and small for not stepping backwards but, with a sure foot, you stepped forward to agree with the “Pull of the Future”. Who “PULLS” you also, is directing you. Do not be afraid, my dear children. You are not alone. The plan is far greater than we can see. Each of you, a major part of His plan.
Be of good cheer, encourage yourself in Christ, and you can face any obstacle that is placed in your path.
It is not you living, alone. Jesus Christ is living in you. Cry a little, for you, must release your pain. Love much and give much to other humans. It is God, alone that is giving the increase.
The increase you will experience cannot be imagined. Most of the increase you will not see. When you stand before God, you stand and every little blessing will become clear.
Take courage, my dear children. The family of eight, whose minds are set on Jesus Christ. Only He is worthy of our praise and of our service to others.
Your sister and brother in another town, are binding together with you, to declare God’s mighty works. In times of weariness, a phone call, or a long drive brings them to you. When they depart your strength will have been renewed.
A different location these two have chosen, but this is also God’s plan. Be strong and full of love, you a family of two. As you contribute your love, finances, time, and energy to the family of eight. God brings His rewards to you in ways not made with hands. The designing of your two souls together has been a work of art. A Master Piece that is admired by all. A life of giving is all He asks. Your unanswered questions are His duty to fulfil. Fulfil, at a time, He chooses is best.
So the family of eight is really a family of ten. Everyone working together in the garden of life. Work the rich soil, my children, that has been given to you. Water the tender plants and tie those plants to sticks, which are too weak to stand alone. Allow the sunlight of God’s love and grace to cause His plants to grow. You all are in charge of a beautiful garden.
Love and Prayers,
