A Letter to Someone Who Needs to Hear This

letter

Dear love,

I know you’re having a hard time believing in yourself these days.

I know the days are long and mentally challenging.

I know the ache in your heart “to do it right” is deep.

I know you sometimes feel like an utter failure.

And I know you feel so weak most days when you wake up.

 

But take courage, dear heart.

You are not alone.

Remember how Christ said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you”?

And how He said, “Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”?

He is with you in the miry depths of the deepest pit.

He sustains you with His everlasting arms of strength.

He gives grace to the weary and broken.

And when you feel like you can’t take another step –

He gathers you in His arms and carries you.

 

Take courage, dear heart.

For I see what you don’t see.

I see your bravery that shows up in a hundred ways each day.

I see your love shining through, even when it’s hard.

I see your persistence, I see your faithfulness.

I see you moving forward – and even if the pace is slow, there’s still progress.

 

Dear heart, these days and nights might be long, but they won’t last forever.

This struggle might be deep, but God’s strength is deeper still.

The One who holds the stars in place is most certainly holding your soul as well.

Keep trusting His plan for your life.

It’s marvelous, it’s miraculous – and it doesn’t end with today.

 

Look up, my love.

“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

How beautiful His grace to us is.

  1. Wow I needed this right now. A very long year health wise that concluded with amputation of my big toe and permanent disability for me. Please keep lifting our spirits with your wise words.
