My Dear Child,
You are at the borders of yourself! I want you to step beyond the borders that you feel you can’t cross. In me there are no borders. There is no limit to what I can do in you and through you.
I have hemmed you in. I go before you, behind you and with you! All of your life, you have been hemmed in by my love. Nothing has touched your life that I did not know about. My hand has always been upon you.
I have had purpose for every season of your life that you have been through. I have wanted you to experience all that I am for you through these different seasons.
In the dark, painful seasons, I was there. I so desperately wanted to comfort you and deliver you; but, you were afraid to let me and you ran from me. You sought comfort through the destructive ways of this world.
In the joyous, happy seasons, I was there. I wanted to rejoice with you and have you share those wonderful feelings with me; but, you forgot all about me. I wanted you to see that every good thing in your life has come from my hand. I wanted you to see that I am a good God!
When you have been in your season of rebellion and pride, I was there. My arms were wide open ready for you to see that you were already forgiven; but, you ignored me and then wondered why you were living under false condemnation.
When you have been in a season of great financial lack, I was there. I had so much provision for you and wanted to give you abundance; but, you decided you could fix things yourself. I was left to wait until another season that I could trust you with this overwhelming abundance. I knew you were not prepared to steward it correctly. It was not because I did not want to give it to you.
Through all of these seasons, I was there and I am still here. You are hemmed in my child. You have always been enclosed in my love. Your actions have never deterred me from loving you and wanting to use you. I am good at waiting.
Now is the season I want you to break free from the borders of you. You are at a critical point of decision. I am here waiting to take you beyond the borders. Step over and cross into the realm of endless possibilities with me. Trust me!
You hem me in-behind and before; you have laid your hand upon me.
