“Beloved. Do not weep. I hear your cries,” Where are you, LORD, where are you?”
I am right here, My Child. Do not be afraid. I walk with you through the fires, and the storms, and the floods that threaten to overwhelm you.
You are not lost, Dear One, but you are found. You are not without Hope, My Weary One.
For your Maker is your Husband, the LORD of Hosts is My Name, the Holy One of Israel and the God of all the earth I AM called.
I will never leave you nor forsake you. I AM your Keeper; I AM the Shade you dwell under; under My Wings you have refuge.
I shall keep you from all evil, My Love. I preserve your life. I AM your Comforter and the Lover of your soul.
I gather you to Me like a hen with her chick, like a mother holds her baby tightly to her chest.
This is your dwelling Place, Beloved. This is the Secret Place; Next to My Heart. Listen, Beloved, listen to My Heartbeat of Love for you.
You are not alone, you are not alone. Trust in Me, Little One of Mine, trust in Me. Rest in My everlasting Arms. You are hidden in Me. You are safe with Me, My Child, you are safe.”
