It is clear to Me that your mind is troubled.  I watch as you nervously comb your hair and put your face in your hands.  Your heart is in anguish and it saddens Me to watch you suffer.  As the sky changes from day to evening, I sit on this step with you.  I can see that you are not ready to talk so I wait. One day.  Two days.  Three.  Still, your voice does not call out My name.  While waiting for you to recognize Me, I show you love through laughter, sunshine, and a gentle breeze.

Finally, I hear your voice saying My name.  I sweep you up in My embrace and listen as you spill all of your hurt, fears, and pain into My arms.  I understand the difficulties you face and I gently remind you of My own sufferings.  How I was beaten, battered, and bruised.  I whisper for you to follow My lead and love like you have never loved before and rest in knowing that I will never let the righteous fall.  You are so precious to Me and I want you to truly understand my uncontainable grace.

Psalm 55: 4, 16-19

Till next time, let your light shine!

Blessings, christen
