dedicated to my loved ones, as we begin a journey towards healing ...
While you sleep, I watch you toss and turn; wrestling with the thoughts overwhelming you. I know you are consumed with grief, fear, and doubt. I know you do not understand how I am able to bring good out of something so horrible but I can and I will. Why? I love you.
My response to your torment is to remind you who I am. I am your helper and your strength; you can trust that “through my Son, you can do all things.” Not just some things, but ALL things.
It saddens me to see you suffer and someday, I will show you how I have caught every tear staining your pillow and bathing your face. My deepest longing is to wipe away these tears and to soothe your troubled soul, but while I long to help you, to be your strength, you too have the responsibility of asking.
So, roll over and cry out to me. Ask me for peace and rest. Ask me to soothe your troubled mind. Tell me how you feel … and then … wait. Yes … I know it’s hard to … wait … but if you … wait … I will reveal myself to you. You will be amazed! Trust me to show myself. Remember, as an earthly father longs to soothe their troubled child, I too, even more so, long to soothe you. I will draw you close and blanket your heart and mind with my hand of love.
My child, seek me and you will find me. I will give you rest.
With all my love, into eternity,
Your Heavenly Father
