Arise, shine, My Child, for your Light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. The world would call you foolish, but I call you My wise one. Why is your soul so disquieted within you, Beloved?
Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. I AM the Lifter of your head. I AM the health of your countenance. The enemy has tried to steal your joy and your confidence. But be strong and take heart, Little One. Be of good cheer.
I will put a smile back on your face. Forget not My benefits, Dear One. I crown you with lovingkindness and tender mercies. I have redeemed your life from destruction, forgiven your iniquities, and provided healing for all of your diseases.
I shall satisfy your mouth with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. I have not forgotten you, My Love. Take courage and believe your God. It will be just as I said.
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.
