To whom it may concern,

You are mine, although I may not yet be yours. Whether you believe it or not, every soul is mine and I love each of them to the full. You are loved to the full. 

I have never, nor ever will I, forsake you. You may feel forsaken, but you are not alone. You may feel lost, but you are not lost to me. I know exactly where you are and I am coming to you to guide you home. 

I understand what it feels like to believe you are forsaken. My Son once felt similiarly. He could endure the physical pain of the cross, but the spiritual anguish was nearly more than he could bear. The sins of the world were, indeed, placed on his shoulders, but I did not forsake him because of it. Why would I?! He was within my will, after all. 

Nevertheless, as he became sin for you, he, for the first time, experienced its condemnation. It blurred his vision and he could no longer sense my presence, but I was there! I would never turn from him . . . he knew that! So, although he could not sense my presence, he released himself into my hands, in faith, with his final earthly breath. 

All this to say, Jesus was not forsaken so that you could be forgiven. No! He felt forsaken so that he could break the binds of sins deception for you. He defeated sin and, three days later, death. All that remains is for you to come home. I am always here, but you must forgive yourself and turn back home in order to see that this is true. I will never give up on you. You mean far too much to me to settle for anything less than restoration.

With a love that cannot fail,
