***** "Those who are the most vulnerable, I hold closest to Me in My arms.
These are too weak and fragile to walk on their own.
They cannot even bear to think their own thoughts sometimes.
I hold them close.
I comfort them.
I give them (My) peace and (My) comfort.
*** When you sin and come to Me for help and for forgiveness, I also hold you close.
I know your heart.
I see how you've tried and failed, over and over.
I see how you feel it is hopeless and you give up.
*** BUT...after the despair and hopelessness have taken you into their grip...I come and rescue you and hold you close to Me again.
If you fall seven times, I still will pick you up. (seven times = many times)
*** For those who are weak and tired, I give rest. (I give My rest to.)
*** I give rest.
I give relief from the storm...the storms of life...the storms of living...the storms of death and loss and grief...the storms of anxiety, stress and pressure...the storms of disease and fatique...the storms of loneliness, dread and torment. I give peace.
(I *AM* peace.)"
