Fret not your souls with puzzles that you cannot solve. The solution may never be shown you until you have left this flesh-life.
Remember what I have so often told you, "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now." Only step by step, and stage by stage, can you proceed, in your journey upward.
The one thing to be sure of is that it is a journey with Me. There does come a Joy known to those who suffer with Me. But that is not the result of the suffering, but the result of the close intimacy with Me, to which suffering drove you.
"But the path of the just is as the shining light, that
shineth more and more unto the perfect day." Proverbs 4:18
