This latest pain. Yes, I know you feel you really made a mess of things. Maybe you did. You fear that everything is ruined now. But don’t you know, I Am a restorer? If you just had faith in that, you would know that all things can be made new. There will be healing.
Yes, I do take away. I give and I take away. You are not as in charge of all that you believe you are. Oh you have free will, but I have directed your steps. I have laid a path for you. I could not, knowing all I know, protect you this time. Many, many times I have. But this time I would not. No, it wasn’t punishment. Not at all, though I have corrected you in other instances. This time it was an allowance. I saw where you were headed, I knew the mistake you were going to make. I could have thrown something else in front of you to prevent it but I had to let you see this through.
And now here you are. You are sorry for the way it turned out. You feel abandoned and alone. But you are not. I am here. I always have been here. And though for the moment it feels quite awful, I will work it out for the good. I can do that you know. And I will. There will be a time when you will actually be grateful for this experience. Because you did not do anything wrong. Please know that. This is not a sin dealing. You got in over your head. You weren’t ready. You didn’t see this coming. And now you feel ashamed, embarrassed, like a failure. But it will be as a lesson. When you look back, you will see more clearly why you had to go through this. And you will be victorious in a time to come.
Do you love me? Do you trust me? Will you hear me now, child? I am here to comfort you.
