1 Peter 2:9
… you are God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Child I know today has been a rough day for you and that you’re feeling defeated, like a failure. Only those closest to you can hurt you as much. Their words penetrate deeper and the pain is much worse than from anyone else. Remember that your journey is at a different stage. I have pursued you for a long time… you knew Me but not with the intimacy that we now share. My heart ached for this for along time while your journey took you searching and hoping… preparing the way for who you would become. When the timing was right I called you out of your despair and that dark place where you were… I called you into My wonderful light, revealing the depths of Myself to you. This was a process over time. So be patient with yourself and with those who hurt you. Declare My praises no matter what, so that I can be seen in you at all times. You are My special possession whom I have called and so is the one who hurt you. Show love and My grace, because they have to choose their own path and have their journey in order to come to the place where our hearts meet and the darkness is overcome by light.
