It's one thing to know in your mind that you are God's child and He knows who you are. It is quite another to really feel it.
Yesterday God gave me a tender mercy that I don't want to forget. I was troubled about something and prayed to know whether I was making the right choice. I was amazed at how quickly the feeling came.
First, "Be still."
And then after a time, "Yes. I love you. I know you. I know your path. Keep going."
