The presence of God enfolds me and comforts me.
In the silence of God's loving presence, I listen and I hear God's message to me:
"Beloved, I am here with you now and forever. Do not fear or give in to doubt, for I am the light that is guiding you through the darkest of nights and encouraging you on safe pathways.
"My spirit is the spirit of unconditional love that can and will enable you to overcome whatever may seem to be challenging you now or in the days to come.
"My comfort is peace that surpasses all understanding. Let My peace infuse you with the assurance that you have a life filled with love and hope, regardless of what has happened.
"Remember, dear one, that I am always with you and you can rely on Me."
"You have pain now; but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you."--John 16:22
