I know your heart, and I understand everything you go through. I know that it’s hard when you feel like you’re at the very end of your rope. You feel like you don’t have the strength to face what’s ahead, to go through it and come out on the other side. Don’t worry about how you feel. Believe Me, you will come out on the other side.

I suffer with you. When your heart aches, My heart aches, for you have a High Priest that can be touched with the feeling of your infirmities.1 I ache for you! I hurt for you! This is one of those times when I take you in My arms and I carry you. I know that at these times, it’s too much to bear on your own and that you cannot go it alone, so I hold you tight and I carry you.

Out of the ashes of hurt and defeat will grow the beautiful lilies of My love—not only in your life, but in the lives of many others whom your life will touch. Only believe that I am able. Trust Me in the deep waters. Trust Me in the dark places. Know that I have gone before you and I am holding you. I will help the floodwaters not to overpower you.
