You are going to have bumps and bruises along the way. Everyone does. Knowing Me doesn’t make you immune to them. This is not because I am a cruel, neglectful, abusive, or punishing God. Quite the contrary! People stumble through life’s realities, and there is pain and discomfort that accompanies it by the sheer nature of human existence. But I am the Great Healer, Counselor, and Advocate. I am your Companion, placing healing ointments of grace and peace upon you along the way. I see your tears; I cry along with you. I recognize your worries and irritations, never dismissing them. Find Me, the One who knows you, and lean into My sturdy frame when you are weak. You don’t always have to be strong. Just be faithful and trust the walk we are taking together. You can still find joy.

Turn your cares and concerns for yourself and others over to Me, then work on letting go of your grip and trying to control the outcomes. Trust that all will result in good things under My control. I bring comfort and energy to sustain you.

When you are sad or anxious, I am fully present. I don’t wait for you to be struggling in order to come near, though. The truth is, I am always fully present and attentive to you. That may be hard to wrap your head around when you are caught up in worries or stress. Be gentler on yourself. I don’t mind attending to your needs. Take a break from sadness, worry, and fear, and rest in My safe arms for a while. Let Me nurture you back to confidence. Everything will work its way out in due time.

It’s okay to not be happy all the time. On those days when you feel sad or discouraged, treat yourself extra gently, – just as I would. Attend to your needs like you would a sick child: encouraging rest, offering something cool to drink, tenderly stroking their head and praying for them to get better. Lean into hope that things are on the mend and lighter, easier days are ahead. In fact, cling to this hope as your lifeline of truth, because I am here.

You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.
I delight in your vulnerable self, because it is in your vulnerability that I can be drawn ever so close to you. I offer Light-filled moments for you to rest your head upon as I fill the room around you with peace. Let Me cover you in soft blankets of comfort and compassion. I share in your sorrow, yet I want you to see My Joy ahead. I still have much Goodness in store for you. Allow others to care for you in your time of sorrow. Don’t be afraid to show your sadness. I need you to demonstrate how to grieve just as much as how to have strength in faith.
