I know you’re going through a tough time right now, and I wish I had the perfect words to lift the burden from your shoulders. I wish I could take away all your pain. I long to give you advice to encourage your heart and motivate you as you walk this difficult journey, but I can’t.
My words fall short each time I try. They get jumbled in my head and never make it out. They feel so inadequate for what you’re facing.
But I realize it’s not my words that give you hope. Sharing words to mend your soul is not what you need right now. All you need is my presence. You need to know I’m here for you and will sit with you in the hurt and just be.
All I have to offer is my presence, but I must realize it’s so much more than anything I could ever say. My presence says everything I wish I could put into words.
I’m here. I’m listening. I’m for you. I’m beside you. I won’t leave you. I’ll help you carry the load.
My silence says so much more than my words ever could. And at this moment, that’s enough. At this moment, it’s exactly what you need.
I hope you know that even when my words fall short, my heart breaks with yours. When the day comes for the pieces to be put back together, I’ll be there to celebrate with you.
But once again, it won’t be my words you’ll need. It’ll be my presence. My presence says everything my words could never convey, and I hope that’s enough.
