IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I am the light you need in the darkness. I am the one to liberate you from oppression, depression, addiction, and bondage. I may choose to free you entirely or partially on earth, but a day will come when you will be wholly and completely free. Come to me with your pain and doubts and fears and defeats. Come to me with your joy and calm, your hope and peace. I have been providing for you and will continue to do so. Keep following me.
When you need wisdom and a place to share your heart and unload your pain or guilt, I am a Wonderful Counselor. When you need a victory over enemies, strength to persevere, or courage to make it through another day, I am a Mighty God. When you need love and support and the confidence that I will never leave you or forsake you, I am an Everlasting Father. And when you need calm, or you need me to still your heart or quiet the voices or noise in or around your head, I am a Prince of Peace.
Stop several times throughout your day and acknowledge God’s presence. Seek God during turmoil. Rest in God during times of peace. Make it a habit to recognize God’s presence. Thank him for being with you.
