I AM for you precious one. I AM the banner that stretches over your woman’s heart.
I come to bring light where darkness encroaches and to breathe grace and mercy where injury abounds.
I come to arrest that which would arise against you and try to crush your loveliness of soul.
This world is broken, my precious one, and it is so often breaks upon you.
I have come that you might have life, instead.
I have come that you might celebrate.
You abide so deep in my kingdom heart. I count your tears.
I cry them with you.
It is my wondrous pleasure to wipe them all away and turn your every mourning into joy.
No distance is too great for me to travel.
No divide is too wide. No sacrifice is too costly.
Indeed I have given my life – for you.
I love you, my precious daughter.
I love you.
