You are Mine for all times. In sickness and in health; for richer or for poorer. Just like a marriage vow made in love, I am committed and dedicated to you. But unlike a marriage with its human ups and downs, – its flaws and passions and disappointments, – I am steadily present and constantly attentive to you. I am filled with desire for your well-being. Come to Me as your first love. Together we can be dedicated to loving ways in the world. Let Me show you support. In return, voice your commitment to Me and allow My love to heal your tender heart. You’ll receive My overwhelming love for you and find comfort and security in My Presence.
You know the sting of pain and hurt. You’ve seen deep disappointment and frustration, especially lately. I am with you in all of it, but that can sound like a hollow phrase. Listen to it again, picturing Me right in front of you and speaking these words with the truest compassion and most sincere commitment possible on My Glorious face: “I am with you in ALL of it!” Not just in bits and pieces or here and there. I was with you back then, I’m with you now, and I”ll be with you when the next thing comes along. Look to Me for help and comfort. I am already there, offering My hand for your peace of mind.
I detect that note of sadness inside, – well-hidden from others’ observation. You can come to Me in that vulnerable space because I get it. I know exactly what you are missing, grieving, and disappointed by. It’s okay to be sad like that. I never see it as a sign of weakness. Allow Me to console you, just being near and sitting in that pool of grief together. Soon I will help you rise above it all. There is a season for everything, and joy will come in the morning.
Learn the art of moving on. I’ve watched you mulling things over to the point of exhaustion, thinking “If only I had done this or that”. These past hurts, injustices, and annoyances bubble to the surface and distract you from the beauty of the present. Instead of ruminating about past conversations and experiences, try releasing them to My attentive care. Take what has been troubling you and leave that baggage on My holy doorstep. Breathe in the peace I offer you in exchange. I can take care of it. Move on as an act of trust, freed from that burdened load. Behold! I am doing something new.
You’ve been wounded. This is real. Vivid, visceral memories that cannot and need not be denied. I give you resiliency and backing to confront evil ways with calm honesty. It doesn’t have to be a fly-off-the-handle rant. Speaking the truth will always be met with some level of adversity by those who cannot tolerate it and want their own control. I am in control, though. My Love is what rules, even over darkness. Once you have spoken your peace, move on. Move forward with Grace on your side, because My Grace calms and validates. My Grace supports you even when others have let you down. My love will heal you to your CORE. Eventually it will be easier to let go of the anger and hurt you feel. All things in due time.
Why do you see yourself as “undeserving” or disappointing to Me? Do you think I am counting up pluses and minuses with your every thought and action, tallying them, and only when you are “ahead” will you be worthy of My love and delight in you? I embrace you without accomplishments, – even when you are resting. I want you to practice doing LESS until you can solidly recognize My Love stays regardless of imperfections or outcomes. I love you, flawed and human as you are, -even when you are emotional or moody. Linger with Me in stillness and idleness, allowing your innermost self to realize the depth of My love for you. You never have to “do” or “be” a certain way to earn My love.
You are Mine for all times: in good and even in suffering. Even though no one knows your internal hurt and worries, I do. My intimate awareness of how you suffer deep inside is what makes Me God. I weep with you when you are grieving. I recognize the disappointment you keep silently to yourself. My holy heart aches with yours. Let My intense awareness and attentiveness be your source of comfort today. There is no need to “save face” around Me. Let Me help bear the wounded truth you carry deep within, and trust Me to be your Healing God. I make Goodness arise out of ashes, sadness, and disappointment.
