My drama with being sick last week didn’t end how I left it with you on Tuesday.
I ended up feeling poor for much longer than I intended…
thus doing much less with my children/home/responsibilities than I intended…
thus feeling much more frustration and guilt than I expected.
On Wednesday morning I was a little down, exhausted and irritable,
wondering how I was even going to get through the morning,
let alone the entire day.
I got a text from a sweet friend,
you know the kind of friend,
the friend who always seems to know just what to say,
at just the right time.
She texted me a verse,
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
God spoke to my heart.
I started writing,
what He said to me.
I can only hope,
this speaks to you,
this comforts you,
this lifts you up,
like it did me.
My Dear Child,
My love does not depend on you.
My love does not change like the wind,
or move like the tides.
My love does not depend on how much you love me,
or how strong your faith is,
or how much you believe in me.
My love is.
You see, child,
I am not so easily moved.
I am not so easily swayed as is your heart,
which is oft filled with emotions,
they will never change how I feel about you.
I will always love you.
I will always want you.
I will never leave you.
Even on the days you think you can’t see me.
I am here.
I am real.
I am love.
I am God.
Holding onto hope,
