Stop What You're Doing and Breathe


Do you know how much God loves you? Emily Lauren Townsend shares a love letter from God to all of His daughters.

Dearest Daughter,

I want you to stop what you're doing and breathe.

Breathe in the air around you and embrace My presence that is with you--always.

Let Me anoint you with My presence. Enjoy my radiance.

I want to share with you something I hope you never forget.

I won't let go.

I am the Anchor for your soul. I outstretch my arms to you on a daily basis. My arms could never tire of welcoming you in.

There aren't enough seconds, minutes, or hours in any day that last long enough to let you know just how much I love you.

Neither life nor death can separate us.

Sometimes you grab hold of things and give them the attention I deserve; the attention I so effortlessly give you; the attention we both deserve .

I understand that you make mistakes, and I forgive you for them. But I want you to let go of what you're holding on to so tightly and replace it by grabbing ahold of My outstretched arm. Reciprocate to Me what I constantly give you. Partake in a relationship with Me, My beloved.

Hold on to Me, My daughter. Grab on to My hand and don't let go.

I want what is best for you, and some of the things you tend to hold on to at times just aren't that.

Your heart deserves happiness, joy, peace, comfort, love; every good fruit that I bear is for you. You.

Fill your basket with my fruits. They are as fresh as the dew that blankets each morning. 

“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you." -John 15:16 (The Message)

"But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely." -Galatians 5:22-23 (The Message)

My dearest Daughter, I love you so much.

Walk in My grace.

Live fully.

Live freely.

Serve selflessly.

Smile constantly.

Love others.

Bear fruit.

And do all of these things in My name.

Never forget Who I am.

And always hold on to the One who will never let go of you; Me.

"Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
    don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
    he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
    Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
    your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
    give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
    your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
    don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects;
    a father’s delight is behind all this."
-Proverbs 3:5-12 (The Message)
