Beloved child, when you are weary, come to me and I will give you rest. The burden of this day may be weighing you down but I want you to know that as you let me lift your worries and concerns off of your shoulders you will begin to feel renewed and refreshed. It pleases my heart to know that you love me and that you desire to follow after me. The road will not always be easy, on the contrary, for those who follow me, the road is narrow but the reward is great and it will be worth it all in the end. I have been with you in your sufferings. I have wiped the tears of your sorrow. I know that there are some things in life that seem to be too big to handle but you do not have to walk this journey alone. As long as you are seeking after me, even in those times where you can’t seem to figure out what to do, just trust in me and I will make a way for you in the wilderness. I will always be the light in the darkness. I will shine my light upon your path so that each step you take will be more secure and you will become stronger and stronger the farther up the mountain you go. As you look to the mountain top you may find that a cloud is blocking the view of the mountain peak. You believe in your heart that it is still there but you just can’t see it today so you keep pressing forward – that is faith, that is your hope that keeps you moving forward to a brighter day. Keep stepping out in faith and I will lead you to the mountain top where you will once again bask in the glory of my light. Come to me, my beloved – I have so much to share with you.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
