I have loved you with an everlasting love. I created you for my good works. Before you were born, I thought of you. I formed you in your mother’s womb; knitting all of your inner parts perfectly together. I have always been with you, and I planned each day of your life. Oh, won’t you trust in Me even now My beloved child?
Have you not known that it was I, who held your hands up and taught you to walk? Did I not spoon-feed you all of your first solid foods? I tell you that it was I, the Lord, your God. I brought you out of your darkness, and through the storms and the crashing waves that tried to overtake you and steal your life away.
Believe in Me, because I have believed in you. I knew that you would try to deny My help, and that you would need to prove that you were strong enough to do this world alone, so I waited with patience as I watched you stumble through the darkness. I was attentive to your every cry, and I held your hand in the loneliest of nights. Your heart was aching, and Mine was breaking, as I reached out My hand to draw you near. You tried to grab ahold, but the pleasures of the world were determined to steal your soul.
The longing to feel love and belong to something bigger, you worked and gave all that you had to give, but rejection and denial by people left you hurting and feeling betrayed. I have not forsaken you. I am with you every step of this journey. I know your pain. I know your heart. I am the comforter that can give you hope, faith and love to last to the end.
I have sent my ministering angels to keep you from falling too far, and in the day that you are ready, I am still close enough to hear your whisper, “come near”. I will never leave you, My beloved child. I made a vow to uphold you in this world. I want so desperately to open your eyes, so that you can see that it is I. I am the One that has loved you from the beginning of time, and it is I, who will love you through this earthly life. My love doesn’t end. I am eternal and My Spirit dwells from within. Though your earthly form fails you, I will never fail you. I will raise you up on the last day, and you will shine as the Son.
Your life is not your own, you were bought with a price. That price was paid with the precious blood of My only begotten Son. If you can open your heart and let me in, I will show you a new life that frees you from sin. I don’t ask you to come to Me cleaned up and pure. I only ask that you come to Me, so I can pour out my love and mercy in your life to heal. You are My beloved child, and I am your Father. My love never ends. Come to Me, and I will set you free.
