In this very moment allow me to reconcile the turmoil within your heart and mind. Even though the pressures you experience are very real, and the responsibilities set before you are also very real, so also is my great love for you (1).
My love surpasses your knowledge and understanding. My love surpasses what makes sense to your rational, logical way of thinking. My love is so much greater, so much deeper than what you have previously presumed, that it will offend and confound the traditions and mindsets of yesterday as it begins to intrude and manifest in your daily life. And in this offense I am establishing the truth and reality of who I am, and my great love for you (2).
So do not avoid, or ignore, the turmoil of this day, but allow it to have its work, for in this process you will find your answer, you will find your rest, you will find your rest and reconciliation. For my love is powerful and unapologetic. My love for you is unmatched and immeasurable. My love is far beyond what you have understood and far beyond what you have conceived (3).
In the days of your distress, in the days of your uncertainty, in the days of your hopelessness, drink from the fountain of my great love for you. For in doing so you will find the streams of living water flowing from within your innermost being, overwhelming you with the reality of my great love for you in spite of the circumstances you are presently experiencing (4).
My love is greater than your capacity to resist me, so do not hesitate to come to me in your times of need, but run to me. You will find me with my arms wide open, eager and happy to receive you and embrace you. I will celebrate you as we abide together in my never-ending love for you in all things.
And in my love you will find the rest you need, the refuge to sustain you, and the hope to encourage you. You will experience my generosity and forgiveness as you receive the manifestation of my great love for you, yesterday, today, and forever (5).
