Click HERE to listen to today's devotion

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you;

he will never let the righteous be shaken.

- Psalm 55:22

My dearest daughter,

I love you and I am right there beside you. Whenever you feel alone, know that I am with you. When you feel like I don’t hear your prayers, I am listening. Trust me as I guide you through this time of waiting, I know you and I care deeply for you. Even though life isn’t turning out the way you had hoped, know that I have a plan. Lean on me through this time of unknowns, I will lead you.

My child, I know that there are days when you feel like I have abandoned you. Understand that I will never leave your side. I will never, ever forsake you. On the days when you feel like I have left you behind, choose to turn to me rather than run away in anger. Come to me with all of your frustrations, I want to hear them. I want to be there for you through it all, you don’t have to do this alone.

My word for you during this season of waiting is trust. Trust that I have good plans for your life, they are greater than you could ever imagine. Have patience, my goodness and faithfulness will shine through. My timing is perfect, and I am all that you need. Trust that I know what is best for you. Your prayers may not be answered in the way that you hoped, but keep listening for my voice. When you are feeling doubtful, remember all of the times I have shown up for you. Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, be thankful for all that I have done for you.

Never forget how much love I have for you. I will always be next to you, I will never quit on you. Pray constantly, I will be listening. I will give you peace during the waiting.


Your Father
