I know it sometimes seems like your world is falling apart. It's okay. I'm here. I'm with you. I've got you, and you have Me.
You have My heart, My listening ear, My shoulder to cry on, My strong arms to lift off the heaviness. Most importantly, you have My unconditional love.
I know you don't have all the answers, the reasons, or understand all that is going on right now. I know that you are questioning things. You're wondering if I dropped the ball ... if you can trust Me ... if you have what it takes.
Child, when I designed you, I knew what you would encounter here on earth. You were never meant to walk through this life without Me. I intended for you to walk through it hand-in-hand with Me. For I AM your strength when you are weak. I AM your Comfort when you grieve. I AM the One who catches your tears. I AM the One who shapes and refines you through each experience.
When you surrender the pain, the hurts, the disappointments, and give me all your honest emotions, you open up space in your heart and soul to receive more of My healing and more of My redeeming love. It's in that place of surrender that beauty springs forth from the ashes. In the process, you become more acquainted with Me, My ways, and My love for you. You are strengthened, refined, and shaped into an oak of righteousness. Each experience becomes part of your story with Me.
A story that is unique to you, yet when shared, will impact others. It will give them hope. A hope that can only be found in Me. So climb up in My lap child, and share your heart, your struggles, your feelings. I'm here. I'm listening. I've got you ... and you have Me.
Your Heavenly Father, God
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
