Each day people will do small deeds that are inconsiderate or unkind. Sometimes big injustices happen. Even so, I want you to release these irritations and frustrations into My care. Don’t allow your thoughts and emotions to run wild with ideas about how to tell others off or bring about justice on your own. This wastes important energy and will distract you from the peace and joy available within. Don’t get pulled off track today or be derailed by small injustices. Releasing things to My care doesn’t make you a “doormat”. It takes great strength of character to choose to walk away or to treat others with dignity and respect despite their behavior. My way is better. My way will free you and allow you to rise above any circumstance with great calm and internal respect. Pray for your enemies, even if this does not come easily. I will give you the grace, strength and wisdom in how to handle the situation if your heart is intent upon following My way.

So much of the world is presented in extremes: “right” vs. “wrong”; “my way” vs. “your way”. I am much more tolerant of frailties and misgivings. My will is for what is full of Goodness and Love, – the extreme Light of the world. I desire for you to practice that kind of love and acceptance of others even in their places of darkness. People get overshadowed by pride, ego, fear, and defensiveness. These get cloaked in anger, retaliation, gossip, and vengefulness. The best way to combat darkness is with LIGHT, – My Light. Picture yourself cloaked in shining garments, radiant with peace. You can be an element of Grace and Light in the world. Even if it’s only in one corner today, you can light up a room. I will equip you as you ask for help. Let Goodness triumph over darkness today; do not fear, for I will give you safety and reassurance.

You know My face. You’ve seen Me before a thousand times, but you don’t always recognize Me. I appear in mysterious ways, you know. Sometimes I am a stranger who greets you with joy. Sometimes I am close to you, as in a dear friend. I may appear as someone in need, but- in fact, – it is YOU who is in need. Look for Me and you will find Me. Ask Me whatever it is that you need to ask. I am always listening, always present, always available. Listen to Me in return. I speak to you in many ways. Learn to recognize My face and voice. Trust yourself when you hear or catch a glimmer of what you think may be Me. I am closer than you think.

Oh, My tender-hearted one. I see and hear your hidden self-reproach. Even though others have no idea how hard you are on yourself, I see it and hear it. Sit with Me a while and feel My reassuring arm of protection and comfort around your shoulders. Let’s get back at it today, shaking the dust of yesterday from your feet. Brush off the discouragement and rid yourself of the mean things you’ve told yourself. You don’t need that negativity taking up space in your head, – nor do I want that for you. Replace it with My reassurance that you are loved, you are well, and you are needed. Repeat this mantra throughout the day, because it is My truth for you, and My truth is all that matters.

I am the ultimate fulfillment. So often people try to find fulfillment in things like possessions, recognition, food, drink, travel, sex, beauty, sports, or…you name it. What they are really looking for is a deep, inward sense of peace and wholeness. What do you value? If you set your sights on things other than knowing Me, being in My Presence, and bringing My love to the world, you will lack in feeling fulfilled. I desire to give you that kind of peace. It’s a perfect fit and true union when we are aligned like this. When things of this world distract you, stress you out, or pull you in all directions, turn your gaze toward Me. Seek Me and you will find peace.

You know when you’ve overdone it. Excessive activity and busy-ness leaves you stressed, fatigued, and crabby. Indulge in some R & R and consider this a Godly move. Choosing to invest in down time for rest will lead to better balance to build up your emotional and spiritual reserves. I need you to be well-balanced, not strung out on overdrive. Honor Me by honoring My design of what brings you joy and peace. Hear My call to give you rest and pleasurable activities These are part of My plan for you, too.

Some days are just plain hard to get going. I recognize that. No matter how much you feel weighed down, though, I am with you to help jump-start your day. I carry the heaviest burdens so you don’t have to strain yourself. Instead of taking on a “woe is me” attitude, picture Me smiling and saying, “I’ll take care of that.” Hand over your hardest or most mundane tasks to Me and move on to something else. See how this act of trust in Me improves your energy and shifts your focus. Before you know it, the day will have passed and things will have gotten done in satisfying ways. Partner with Me like this all day and see joy being renewed in your heart.

Saving Grace: these are words to meditate on. My Grace saves. My Grace has enough supply to rescue you and those you care about from any of their troubles. Your job is not always to fix problems. Consider this: your job may be to call upon My Grace, or to direct others to do so. In My Grace there is enough wisdom, stamina, and peace for all. Do you know My Grace? Have you sought it out lately? I love to give it freely; you merely have to step up to the plate and ask for it to be served. I am a generous God. People mistakenly think I am stingy when it comes to helping when they are in the middle of their troubles, but this is completely wrong. It is in times of trouble that My Grace pours out in gallons, washing over the whole scene and bathing those in need.

The world wants to fill the space in your head with accusations, criticisms, and complaints. These hurt your heart. I disdain evil, corruption, and hurtful things. Yet I always find a way to respond with love, forgiveness, and hope for a better future where my children also choose to love instead of cause or reciprocate hurt. If you are faced with a situation that wrestles with your head or heart, seek My voice guiding you to the most loving response. Even if you don’t agree with the person or situation, choose to treat them with dignity. You will find that peace reigns when you do this. I will bless you with that kind of distancing and peace. Rise above. Do good unto others. Seek My kingdom first, knowing that My Grace is sufficient to help you with all of these things.

My hand continues to be working in, before, and behind you, molding you to My design. Hear My voice offering calm reassurance. I AM WITH YOU…I am with you. Breathe in this truth, absorbing its healing power. You are never alone in anything you must face today and always. Today I ask you to not feel small. Instead of being anxious or worried, picture yourself as big, confident, and filled with My strength to accomplish all that is asked of you, one thing at a time. In a world of multi-tasking, doing one thing at a time is actually key to staying focused and calm. Remember that My hand is cupped around yours. Glance toward Me with each task we pick up to handle together. Celebrate our companionship as the day unfolds and eventually draws to completion. My joy is yours.
