Effective immediately, please be aware that there are some important changes you need to
make in your life. These changes need to be completed in order that I may fulfill my promises
to you to grant you peace, joy and happiness in this life.  I apologize for any inconvenience, but
after all that I am doing, this seems very little to ask of you.  I know, I already gave you the 10
Commandments. Keep them. They are still important. But follow these guidelines, also

1. QUIT WORRYING
Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry.  Have you forgotten that I am here to
take all your burdens and carry them for you?  Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little
thing that comes your way?

2.  PUT IT ON THE LIST
Something needs done or taken care of.  Put it on the list. No, not YOUR list. Put it on MY
to-do-list.  Let ME be the one to take care of the problem.  I can't help you until you turn it over
to me.  And although my to-do-list is long, I am after all, God.  I can take care of anything you
put into my hands.  In fact, if the truth were ever really known, I take care of a lot of things for
you that you never even realize.

3. TRUST ME
Once you've given your burdens to me, quit trying to take them back.  Trust in me.  Have the
faith that I will take care of all your needs, your problems and your trials.  Problems with the
kids? Put them on my list.  Problem with finances?  Put it on my list.  Problems with your
emotional roller coaster?  For my sake, put it on my list.  I want to help you.  All you have to do
is ask.

4. LEAVE IT ALONE
Don't wake up one morning and say, "Well, I'm feeling much stronger now, I think I can handle
it from here."  Why do you think you are feeling stronger now?  It's simple.  You gave me your
burdens and I'm taking care of them.  I also renew your strength and cover you in my peace.  
Don't you know that if I give you these problems back, you will be right back where you
started?  Leave them with me and forget about them.  Just let me do my job.

5. TALK TO ME
I want you to forget a lot of things.  Forget what was making you crazy. Forget the worry and
the fretting because you know I'm in control.  But there's one thing I pray you never forget.  
Please don't forget to talk to me - OFTEN!  I love you.  I want to hear your voice. I want you to
include me in on all the things going on in your life.  I want to hear you talk about your friends
and family.  Prayer is simply you having a conversation with me.  I want to be your dearest
friend. Please. I honestly want to do life with you. It's what I've wanted all along.

6. HAVE FAITH
I see a lot of things from up here that you can't see from where you are.  Have faith in me that I
know what I'm doing. Trust me. You wouldn't want the view from my eyes.  I will continue to
care for you, watch over you, and meet your needs.  You only have to trust me.  Although I
have a much bigger task than you, it seems as if you have so much trouble just doing your
simple part.  How hard can trust be?

7. SHARE
You were taught to share when you were only two years old.  When did you forget?  That rule
still applies.  Share with those who are less fortunate than you.  Share your joy with those who
need some encouragement.  Share your laughter with those who haven't heard any in such a
long time.  Share your tears with those who have forgotten how to cry.  Share your faith with
those who have none.

8. BE PATIENT
I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many diverse experiences.  You
grow from a child to an adult, have children, change jobs many times, learn many trades, travel
to so many places, meet thousands of people, and experience so much.  How can you be so
impatient then when it takes me a little longer than you expect to handle something on my
to-do-list?  Trust in my timing, for my timing is perfect.  Just because I created the entire
universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should always rush, rush, rush.

9. BE KIND
Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you.  They may not dress like you, or
talk like you, or live the same way you do, but I still love you all.  Please try to get along, for my
sake.  I created each of you different in some way.  It would be too boring if you were all
identical.  Please know I love each of your differences.

10. LOVE YOURSELF
As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself?  You were created by me for one
reason only - to be loved, and to love in return.  I am a God of Love.  Love me.  Love your
neighbors.  But also love yourself.  It makes my heart ache when I see you so angry with
yourself when things go wrong.  You are very precious to me.  Don't ever forget that!


                                             With all your heart, remember this:
                                                  With all my heart, I love you.
