“The Lord is close to all whose hearts are crushed by pain, and he is always ready to restore the repentant one.” (Psalms 34: 18, the Passion Translation)
We have a tender Father-Mother always ready to comfort us. When we may feel the furthest from peace, this is when our God is close to us. We can rely on the gentle caress of divine Love to wipe away tears of grief and disappointment. We can lean into the arms of kindness and understanding from the One Who knows and loves us.
God is ready to restore us. He is able to make us new when we have lost our way. When we make mistakes, we aren’t abandoned by Him nor are we failures in the world. God sees us for who we truly are, accepts our repentance—our realization of errors and changed hearts—and opens the way for new opportunities, a fresh start.
God, perfect Life and Love, is here. You are not alone. You are not hopeless. You have solace, uplift, a steady ready hand to lift you up, to carry you forward, to pull you in for a holy and healing embrace.
