God will bring goodness and raise you up to stand, not cower and hide, but to stand. You can feel like crying, hiding, running, and turning far away, while He stands. You stand because He stands with you. He stands when you cannot. He stands because He wants to. You stand because in you God has placed roots nourished by His love. Ask Him for more love in your heart, ask Him to help you lean into Him. Ask Him to help you see what He sees- what your roots look like, how He cares for you, how He does more than just help you to stand.
