My dear one, My pastor,
I have seen your face turned up towards Me, towards heaven.
While others see your courage and confidence, I see your brokenness. While they see your smile, I see your heart.
You feel sorrow and sometimes you wonder if you got it wrong. My child, my God-anointed Shepherd of My flock, of my little lambs, you are exactly where I want you.
While they may say things that are not true about you, do not despair because you are in My path; the path of righteousness. I see how you want to please me and how you seek Me.
Do not be afraid of what man can do to you, for you are Mine. You belong to Me and I will direct your footsteps so that my Name is glorified in My house which I built together with You, My beloved, My cherished.
My beloved, keep looking up. That is where your help comes from.
My beloved, pastor of My flock, I see you. I know you. I love you.
Be encouraged today and be of good cheer. I hold you in the palm of My hand. I will be your shield, your hope in times in trouble.
