My child, I know at times it feels as though I am far away. That is far from the truth for I am always right by your side. Even when you do not feel my presence or are not aware that I am moving in your life, trust in me that I am holding you close. When you do not feel my presence – it is in those times that your spirit often draws closer to my heart for you begin to seek me with all of your heart. I will be your refreshing rain in this dry, parched land. I will be the light that brings you out of the darkness. I am the hope that keeps you walking toward your destiny – though you may not know what your destiny is at the present time. I destine that you come to love me with all of your heart, with all of your mind, with all of your strength and with all of your soul. In doing so, I will show you how to more deeply love those people that I put in your midst – friends, family, co-workers and even strangers. Some days you feel frustrated by other people who may have not treated you with kindness or respect. Just keep on loving those people and praying for them and I will move in their lives in new and exciting ways that you will be witness to. The power of prayer is a mighty treasure for you to behold – it is the way that I communicate with you and teach you how to grow and to learn about yourself as you come to understand why you do the things you do and how to be transformed into my image and likeness. Follow me, my child, and I will bring you into your promised land. Never let go of me. I will never let you go – that is my promise to you.
I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
