IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I am with you throughout the day and all through the night. I am with you when you celebrate and when you mourn. Cry out to me when you’re hurting. I am here. I know how you feel. I see your tears. I even collect them. Each tear tells a story and I am actively engaged in all areas of your life. Your eyes may grow tired and your body weaken, but I will give you the strength you need.
I am your deliverer, your comforter, and your provider. It may be difficult to trust me when you’re in pain, but you can do it. Remember who I am and all that I can do. And when you do that, your faith will strengthen others. That’s right—your pain can be used for good. Let that be a blessing, not a burden. You are not responsible for how another feels, but I want you to know the power of faith. Be encouraged by the faith of others, too. Receive their love and strength. And do the same for them.
Cry out to God and then thank God for hearing you and caring about you. Thank him for always providing for you.
