"Beautiful Redemption"

by Kari L. Orloff

I stood at the foot of the mountain.

Few words.

Shocked. Lost. Broken.

I looked up.

Steep.

After the fire came a gentle whisper.

Just breathe.

I took one step.

Believe.

Another step.

Narrow Road.

Step.

For I know the plans I have for you.

Step.

I will restore you.

Step.

You are essential.

Step.

You are chosen.

Step.

You are set apart.

Step.

There are more with us than those who are with them.

Step.

I am doing something new.

Step.

I am making a way in the wilderness.

Step.

You are a light.

Step.

I will fight for you.

Step.

Do not be afraid.

Step.

I go before you.

Step.

You are not alone.

Step.

I will hear you when you call to me.

Step.

I will do immeasurably more than you ask or imagine.

Step.

I hold your right hand.

Step.

I am close to the broken hearted and save those who are crushed in spirit.

Step.

It is I you must follow.

Step.

I will teach you what to do.

Step.

There is nothing too hard for me.

Step.

The battle is not yours.

Step.

Even youths grow tired and weary.

Step.

I will strengthen and help you.

Step.

I have called you.

Step.

When I act, who can reverse it?

Step.

My purpose will stand.

Step.

I will teach you what is best for you and direct you in the way you should go.

Step.

I will never leave you.

Step.

I am still on the mountain.

There is only one Voice leading me.
