From the Writings of Ellen G. White
I write because I love your soul.—Letter 51, 1889.
Dear youth, I wish to speak decidedly to you, because I want you to be saved.—Messages to Young People, 140.
My dear sister, I have written to you because I have a love for your soul.—Letter 51, 1894.
I do not consider your case hopeless; if I did my pen would not be tracing these lines.—Testimonies For The Church 2:562.
Take reproof as from God, take counsel and advice given in love.—Letter 30, 1875.
Keep your wants, your joys, your sorrows, your cares, and your fears before God. You cannot burden him; you cannot weary him. He who numbers the hairs of your head is not indifferent to the wants of His children. “The Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.” James 5:11. His heart of love is touched by our sorrows and even by our utterances of them. Take to him everything that perplexes the mind. Nothing is too great for him to bear, for He holds up worlds, He rules over all the affairs of the universe. Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for him to notice. There is no chapter in our experience too dark for him to read; there is no perplexity too difficult for him to unravel. No calamity can befall the least of His children, no anxiety harass the soul, no joy cheer, no sincere prayer escape the lips, of which our heavenly Father is unobservant, or in which He takes no immediate interest. “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3. The relations between God and each soul are as distinct and full as though there were not another soul upon the earth to share His watchcare, nor another soul for whom He gave His beloved Son.—Steps to Christ, 100.
