I was at the bottom of a large staircase. The bottom stair was cluttered with all sorts of stuff - games, laundry, a laptop, shoes and other household items. I had a hard time actually finding room on that stair to walk. My thought was that I should come back after and clean up and organize this all so that I can walk here. As I took a step up to the next stair, it had less stuff on it and so forth all the way up until I reached the top step and there was nothing on it. Then I saw God right at the top of the staircase. Now it was just Him and me and no stuff.
He said to me: this is how life is. The farther away from me you are, the more there is to clutter your mind and to worry you. As you draw closer to me, it is easier to walk and your mind gains clarity. Sometimes it's a struggle to get up here but when you do, you have a wonderful view and a clear perspective. Come up to this step often for this is where there is true life.
Oh God, help me to desire to live on the heights with You!! And to each of you, my dear ones, my prayer is for you that you will seek to go up those steps often and into His sweet presence.
