Our Father's Love

A friend passed this on to me, and I wanted to share it with you. Think of GOD saying these words to you.

To My precious child...

I wish you could see things the way that I see them. I wish you knew how tightly I truly hold you in My hands. I really have you on the forefront of My mind. I have sent My Spirit to be with you in time of crisis, and in time of desperation. I saw you cry. So badly I wanted to wrap My arms around you and wipe every tear from your eyes. I was with you, I am with you.

I know you struggle with the circumstances of life. Trust me, this is not how I wanted your life to go. But, I will fulfill My promise; you will have life, and life to the fullest. You will soar, and you will have victory. When I created you, I created you with a purpose. I can't wait for you to see what I have for you, I just can't wait!

I see you struggling, I see you trying to create an end to the madness. But don't be afraid for I am with you. I will never leave you, nor forsake you. You can trust me with your life. I created you, I will protect you. If you could only see the process, and see the outcome you wouldn't give up. Not yet. You're so close, you're so close. (I love that last sentence). ; )

Satan wants nothing less than for you to hate Me. Don't forget that. He hates everything that is good. I am turning what he intended for evil into something greater than you could ever imagine. That's why you can't see the outcome of this, because it isn't fathomable. It's really that great! I know the plans that I have for you. Plans to give you a HOPE and FUTURE! Plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I would never harm you. You are too precious to me! This is only a season of your life. This isn't going to define your life, this is only going to be the beginning of what is truly life. Oh the plans I have in store for those who love Me.

Seek Me with your whole heart. I have not hidden Myself from you. I am always here, and I have been with you from the beginning. Oh My precious child, how much I love you. I got this. Rest in My arms, I am worthy to be trusted. I know you're tired, just lean up against Me and breathe...take a moment and breathe. Feel My love for you.

I haven't forgotten you. I will fulfill the promises for your life. Greater things are still to come. Love, your Heavenly Father.

I pray that you...may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ...

Ephesians 3:17-18

See how you are Ministering to others through your own situation? You are using your own pain over losing Reese (temporarily) to help comfort others through their own hard times, whatever they may be! You are certainly an inspiration to me! Keep your sweet head up! ;)

Thank you for those precious words. Though I have not suffered through what you have, I needed to be reminded of God's great love for me and that he will see me through my times of need. I love reading your posts. You seem so much like me. Praying your days get easier since your loss.

Filled me with hope on this rather challenging night. Thank you Katie for sharing. Knowing Reese and her journey through her mother's eyes continues to change me daily. More than I can express.

Another touching post by you! I love that!! I have a friend who's 2 yr old daughter passed away last month, I'll be sharing this with them. And it fits my life right now too, in a completely different spectrum of course. I'm just struggling with getting my business off the ground to be a SAHM, but I'm not giving up! :-)

Rachel Cox said...

Wow. With tears in my eyes, I simply say "thank you."

Mary said...

Thank you Katie. Beautiful words and very assuring.

Cari said...

Hi Katie, I have been a reader for quite some time but this is my first comment. Your story and life has touched me and I have often included you in my prayers after the loss of Reese. You are the type of Christian woman that I strive to be :)

Found you through Shannon's blog!

I woke up this morning, extra early, with you on my mind. God placed you in my heart for some reason and I want you to know that prayers were being lifted up. As I was praying, the song lyrics that came ringing in my mind were "come unto Me, bring Me your fears and all your cares. I will wash them away". I know the song doesn't exactly go that way, but you know what I'm talkin' about.
God continues to place you and your heavy burdens on my heart. I am still praying for you...ALL the time. It may be in the pick up line at school, while I'm blow dryin' my hair, or just rocking one of my babies. I know your pain and I wish I could spare you from it. But KNOW that God WILL take away your pain...just give Him time. Let Him hold your hand as you walk through this storm. I know you all ready are!
Gotta go get the girls to school! I just had to write you first thing before I forgot.
Lots of love today and always,
Let go and Let GOD,
Janie
