You Are Not Alone

My Daughter,

I know that life has never felt worse.
You are not alone.

I know you feel completely abandoned.
You are not alone.

I know about all the tears that fall.
You are not alone.

Like Hagar in the wilderness,
You are not alone.

Like Joseph in the den of lions,
You are not alone.

Like the thief on the cross,
You are not alone.

Like the woman who touched my garments in desperate search of healing,
You are not alone.

I am the God who sees.
I am the God who heals.
I am the God who reconciles.
I am the God who blesses.

My daughter, you are not alone.
Even when all the lights go out, when no one sees your pain,
I see you.

You are not alone.

When you cried yourself to sleep,
I was there.
You are not alone.

When you for the first time in years just wanted to go home,
I was there.
You are not alone.

When life was too much,
I was there.
You are not alone.

Take heart,
I see you.
I love you.
You are not alone.

When all else fades,
I AM.
