child of mine…
time of your great need, I am placing my sheltering arms around you.
hour of great tribulation upon your soul, I am placing my love over you, under
you, around you, and all those you love.
in me and I will place my hand upon you.
in me and I will place my hand upon the life of your family, friends, and
me and I will not let you slip away into selfishness or let you ever forget my
sacrifice for you.
me and I will not let your heart melt within you.
me and I will wipe away every tear from your eyes as you move forward in my will
new ways of being and feeling have erased your heart, I will give you back my
old ways of being and feeling.
you falter and do things not of my will, I will place upon you my burdens and I
will give you a vision of my cross so divine.
you may not fully understand, I will help you carry your burdens with dignity
and good cheer.
your heart to me and I will help you see my great suffering.
suffering I will give to you new life, new hope, and new being.

look back so you may move forward with joy and gladness in your heart.
me and I will pour out my mighty love and spirit into your heart.
give you power to be my witness wherever you are.
