Do not worry, child.
Breathe deeply now.
The Living Spirit is within you; she fears not the wild.
I, who can calm a storm, can give you rest.
You are not alone here.
Look to my face
And do not hide your eyes, my dear.
For I am standing before you with open arms.
This is sacred space.
So let out the breath you are holding.
It is time to allow yourself grace
And I am here to accompany you.
Say what you are afraid to say.
Feel what you are afraid to feel.
I have sent help to guide you through this day.
I am still here.
Even faith the size of a mustard seed
Has the ability to move mountains.
It’s okay if you don’t know what you need;
Try to trust that I will bring it to you in time.
Let the tension leave your chest
As protective arms wrap your body.
Do not fight this; it is time to rest.
It is time to rest.
