To the One I love the most,
It is so unlike me to go a day without expressing how much my heart beats for you, how I yearn to whisper a word so you can hear my voice, mighty yet gentle. I long to pour my love so you know I am not an absentee Father but Omnipotent, here and there at a time.
I know your highs and your lows. I know so well that you have known abundance and you have known lack. You have been rejected and have felt unloved. You have been homeless and helpless. You have been jobless and without a penny. You have been in the dirt and messed up. You have been close yet so far. You have walked through doors of temptations posing as doors of escape. You have seen yet unable to handle. You have needed yet unable to have and you have hoped yet your expectations quenched.
I am also aware that you have trusted yet been betrayed. You have selflessly given yet been mishandled. You have loved yet have had mud thrown back at your face. You have been friendless and have had defeats. You have walked the dark corridors of life. You have been through and you have been through. But of a truth, I have been your Shepherd!
The fact that I have been makes it the more reason you should stand. Be rest assured if I have been, I shall forever remain.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you. When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down. When you’re between a rock and a hard place it won’t be a dead end—Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in!That’s how much you mean to me!That’s how much I love you!I’d sell off the whole world to get you back ;trade the creation just for you.I am Your Shepherd and you shall not want.Every new day is a gift from me.Only be still and know I am the God who is more than able.
From the one who loves you the most!

(There is nothing that you go through that God would not see you through.He would never give you more than you can handle.If you are in it,He knows you can come out of it stronger and better. He is a Shepherd; a Present Help in time of need and you shall want in nothing!)
