KEEP YOUR HEAD UP DURING HARD TIMES

my precious child I see the weight of the world pressing down on your shoulders as you absorb the constant

barrage of troubling news my heart aches to see you so burdened and distressed by

the endless stream of reports about conflict tragedy and turmoil I know how deeply you care about

this world and all who dwell in it your compassion is beautiful to me but I

don’t want it to crush your spirit remember my child that I hold all of

creation in my hands though the news may make it seem as if everything is spiraling into chaos I remain Sovereign

over all no event takes me by surprise or thwarts my ultimate purposes even in

the midst of what appears to be darkness and despair I am at work bringing light and

redemption in ways you cannot yet see when you feel overwhelmed by distressing

your anger at Injustice I am here to listen and to comfort you let my peace wash over you

and quiet your anxious thoughts in my presence you can find rest for your
