Why are you so afraid, dear child? Haven’t I promised that I’ll be with you at all times? Regardless of what you see or hear or feel, always know the truth of what I’m saying—I never leave you! You have absolutely nothing to fear. Everything stands in rapt attention to what I command. And if I allow some trial to come your way, it’s because I have a greater good I want to give you.
Being on this side of things is harrowing at times. I no sooner get past one ordeal and another one pops up—with a different twist from the last one. I sometimes feel like I’m in the house of horrors. I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to this.
