even though all you want to do
is stay at home and bury your head
under those cozy covers.
You gather with some of My children,
hoping no one sees what is
simmering just below the surface
on the inside,
yet kind of hoping they will,
without you having to say a word.
Overwhelmed with hopelessness,
all you can see is your situation.
When you let down your guard
as you enter the throne room,
you have my complete attention.
As you begin to cry,
tears well up within My eyes
and My arms open wide
as I gather you close.
In your duress you have forgotten
the truth which I need to remind your spirit,
as My Spirit touches you
In the deepest places within
My Love is all the hope you need
when you are overwhelmed by hopelessness.
My Strength is all the energy you need
when you are drained from the journey.
My Embrace is all the safety you need
when enemy arrows are seeking you as their target.
My Presence is all the rest you need
when you are exhausted beyond measure.
My Wisdom is all the direction you need
as you cannot see the road ahead.
My Body is all the family you need
when the loneliness lies that you are better off on your own.
I AM all that you need.
Never stop bringing yourself
just as you are
I will never cease
My constant lookout
You are My most treasured possession.
You are the delight of My heart,
which aches when you keep away
from me, trying to hide
what I already know.
Come out of hiding again, Beloved.
Cease thinking that you don’t matter.
The cross is proof enough that you do,
You are never far from My thoughts
for My heart quickens at the very thought of YOU.
Allow My Spirit to minister to your spirit,
allow My son to cleanse your soul.
Allow My children to gather, encourage and bless you on earth.
Allow Me to move and stir and shape and empower you.
Don’t stop coming into My house, nor in My Presence.
Love, your Abba
