Be brave, little girl. We will follow Christ. Up the higher ways, mountains too high for us, but He will give us hinds’ feet to walk on the heights. We will follow His way. We will learn His steps.
Be brave, little girl. We will love like Christ. And you are already showing me how. He is teaching me through you, and as I learn, I will let the love lessons pass to you. We will wrap love and faithfulness around us, like I have swaddled you, so they will never leave us. He will never leave us.
Be brave, little girl. We may kneel in the thorns of suffering, but love will heal. We may fall on the slippery crags, but love will raise us. We may lose our way in the dark night of the soul, but love will find us. Christ will find us, bind us to Himself.
Be brave, little girl. You are loved. You are Christ’s.
