Group Beyond Blue: Take Baby Steps

I was also moved by Group Beyond Blue member Safehaven’s response to Mali66’s journal entry. Safehaven writes: 

Dear One, 

Trying to “take in” the whole picture can be very frightening.

 I know from experience. 

You feel as though the weight of the world is upon you, and you can barely breathe, let along function. 


I have learned to take one day at a time. 

Live that day as fully as I can and thank my Abba God for the joys, and ask His forgiveness for the mis-steps.
You may not feel His presence all the time, or hear His still, small voice, but, trust that He is with you always, and is eagerly waiting for you to call to Him. His hands are always outstretched and His arms are always there for you to lean upon. 

He loves you dearly. 

Take His hand, lean on His arm. 

Accept His wonderful love pouring out toward you this very moment. 

You will make your Abba so very happy.


 And you will feel happy, too. 

He knows what is best for you. He desires only the best for His children.
Rest in His arms and in His love, my sister.
He is our Safehaven. 

My love to you and my prayers.
