You are not alone, though you feel isolated, rejected and inadequate at times. Know that I am with you to guide you and direct you. I am with you to comfort you. Do not look to mankind to meet your needs or to ease your pain and grief or to bring consolation, for natural means will only bring temporary support while My comfort is from everlasting to everlasting. I will lift you up, and I will renew and restore you. Your refreshment will come from My presence alone. Release yourself from the fantasy that someone or something will make you happy, for I am your source of joy. Everyone and everything pales in the light of My true joy and My love for you, for I am the source of life, which is the essence of your desire.
