I see you struggling to find your place in this world—your world.
I. See. You.
Come close to Me. Closer still. Dear one, your place is here within. Lean in close enough to feel My heart beat.
My heart beats—for you—for us.
I am here and I am for you—I really am. Trust.
I hear you straining to find your voice—and be heard.
I. Hear. You.
And I hear more than the words that flow out of your mouth. I hear all things unspoken. I hear both strength and struggle with security. I hear the uncertainty of what is to come. I hear the pain that cries out in your soul. I hear the intentions you’ve set in your heart. I hear you Beloved. I hear you with My whole heart.
I know your reluctance in going deeper.
You have journeyed well, but Dear One, there is more. The journey is not yet over.
I know the pain and loss you’ve endured—we’ve endured it together. I know your wrestle with this season of refining. But Beloved, have you forgotten so quickly? Refining isn’t a dark bleak place intended to crush every breath out of you. Far from it. It’s a place of wonder, joy, expectation, and discovery.
Dear One, we’ve been here before–and just like every other time we will move through this together. It’s time to lift your eyes from what you might lose—and press in to what you will gain. And oh what you—what we will gain together—fresh life, fresh breath.
Just wait and see.
