“I know a word before it is on your tongue. I hear the prayers of your heart and send my answers when you need them the most. My love flowing over you doesn’t stop because you may be experiencing pain in your body or hurt in your heart. I am ever close and ever ready to minister to you.
The way to receive from me is to come to me. Come to me with all of your concerns and lay the burdens of your heart at my feet in prayer. Ask me for what you need and I will give you truth and loving encouragement as I minister to your soul.
While it is natural for you to seek comfort from others during times of emotional or physical distress, they will not always have the capacity to understand, or say the things you may want and need to hear. You will not always be able to communicate in a way that they can receive and respond to you. They may not have the expanse to see past your tangled emotions and into your heart.
I am the only one who can see into the depth of your heart. I am the only one with the capacity to receive you however you come to me. I just want you to come. I want you to allow me to be your loving, kind, compassionate Father; the one who comforts you; the one whose truth does not condemn you, but lifts you up and encourages you.”
