[A note from Gerri:  As the song says, “Into every life some rain must fall, but it won’t rain always.”  Recently I was going through a difficult time.  It seemed that so many things were closing in around me.  Ever felt like that?  Of course you have!  During that time I received an unexpected surprise box with lots and lots of goodies in it from a new friend.  I knew when I opened the box that she had prayed about what to send me.  Every single thing had ‘Love, From Father’ all over it.  One of the very special things she sent was a small devotional book by Sheri Rose Shepherd titled His Princess – Love Letters From Your King.  On an especially difficult day, I picked it up and it opened to the following letter.  I knew that day it was just for me.  I also knew  it is likely that someone out there reading this will find that today it is just for you!  May you be encouraged and blessed!  Love, Gerri]

Don’t get discouraged, My Beloved; pain is a part of life.  But I promise you that I will turn every tear you’ve cried into joy, and I will use your deep pain for a divine purpose.  Don’t try to hide your hurts from Me.  I know everything about you.  You are Mine, My Beloved!  I ‘m the only one who can handle your heart and restore you to health and wholeness again.  I, too, have felt great pain, rejection and anger.  But we can go through every trial together.  Hand in hand I will lead you back to My place of peace and joy after the storm.  The sun will shine on you again, and your heart will be healed.  I promise you that when you go through deep waters of great trouble, I will be with you.  When you go through rivers of difficulty you will not drown.  When you walk through the fire of oppression you will not be burned.  [Is 43:1-2]  Love, Father
