And when you feel you have exhausted all your capacity and strength, when you feel you have nowhere to go, and no one to turn to, abide with me. You run from me because you feel I am not there already. And you run to places you think I am not, but as you run to your limits, and the edge of your own capacity you will find I am already there and always have been. And as you accept this, let go of your stress, fear, and worry and abide with me. Allow my presence to comfort your heart. Allow my spirit to warm the cold places in your inner man. Allow me to reveal myself to you in the secrets of what I have in store for you. (1)
Allow me to be mysterious in your interpretation, and do not confine me in to a box. Allow my ways to empower you, and strengthen you, not harm you or confuse you. For there are dimensions and aspects of your own humanity you have not fully understood, but I have. And because I have understood them I am more than qualified to give you what you need. I am more than capable at adjusting your thinking and behaving. I am more than capable of not just giving you what you need, but also keeping you from what you do not need.
Dismantle your desire to control, and sit with me in silence and idleness. Sit with me in silence and allow my presence to confront the hurts you hide. Allow my silence to massage the jagged edges that cause you pain. Allow my presence to not only heal what you know, but to mend, redeem, restore, and heal the hurts you do not recognize too. Spend time in my presence, in deliberate awareness and contemplation of who I am, for in doing so you will find it is time well spent.
