Dear Daughter;

I see you walking in the desert, 

trying to find a shadow to hide in. I hear you thinking

of days gone by. I hear your regrets— I see your tears.

I heard you say \” I\’m not good enough\”. I saw you

struggling to walk alone, without me. You failed. I saw

you were looking for something, but you didn\’t find it. You 

were looking in all the wrong places. I saw your fear,

I saw your sadness. I saw your broken soul.

Dear Daughter; I was there with you. I never left your side.

You are loved. I have my hand over you, like a shield. 

The incoming attacks began to bounce off of my hand 

held over you.

Dear Daughter; I saw you begin to look up. I heard you say

\”Lord please rescue me\”. I rescued your soul; I rescued

your Heart. I shook the shackles off your life.

Dear Daughter; I saw you step out of your fears and sorrows,

I saw you begin to step out in faith. I saw you seeking me; I

encouraged you. You began to walk with me, and talk with

me, you began to learn the WAY to walk with me. I heard

you say \”Lord please stay with me for I am a work in progress\”.

Child, I will always stay with you.

Dear Daughter; I have your story written; believe me when I say,

you\’re not done yet. Child, I fight your battles in your weakness.

I placed peace in your heart. I opened the clouds and set you free.

Dear Daughter— I heard you say, \” Take my life in your hands, 

let it be all for you. I lift my heart to you\”. \”Lord, I\’m ready, 

Holy Spirit, I will go wherever you call me to go, near or far\”.

 \”Lord, HERE I AM\”.
