You are worried too much about time. Being busy can tear you up and pull you away from time spent with Me. Don’t you recall that I promise to give you enough time, strength, and resources in 24-hour increments? Allow trust in My divine plan to take over your thoughts, dismissing worry and driving doubt away. I am not a God who drives you too hard. See My love for you, woven into this day with enough time for everything that is needed. Live in this truth, and find peace.
All deceitful thoughts that try to suggest you are “less than”, unworthy, tainted, or that you somehow just don’t measure up are lies. It is not only My Presence with and in you that is Good; it is also My design of you. Calm yourself with these words, allowing confidence to be bolstered. You are inherently Good and worthy of good things. How might you carry yourself differently in this day if you embraced your GREATNESS and your much-needed place in this world? Don’t buy the lie that you don’t belong wherever I place you today. Choose to love as I love, filled by the grace and power to do so. This includes loving yourself, made in My image. Peel away any hurtful images the world has imposed on you, and discard those at My feet. Allow Me to make you whole again.
There is no need for all this distress. Your tendency to hyper-plan and fret only serves to block My Light. I already have the way planned out for you, My child. Don’t waste your energy on needless and excessive worrying. Instead, ask for Grace to wash over you with resulting reassurance. I am a Good and merciful Lord. Let Me bear the burdens and give your shoulders a break. Come to Me and I will ease your pain. No concern goes unnoticed by Me. Breathe, and allow My Light and peace to soothe you. Let Me help carry the load.
I give you this day with all of its concerns and unknowns. I see your anxious eyes. You don’t have to be so afraid; I am a trustworthy God. Consider yourself a trusting toddler taking My hand as I lead you safely to places you’ve never been. I know where we are going. I am the one taking you there! Stay close by My side when you feel afraid. My protective arm is ever-ready to shield and comfort you. You are never alone.
Today is meant to be a day of REST. Be Mine, all day. You are already Mine. You’ve been anxious and worked up over many things this week. I’ve got this, – (ALL of it!), – so take the day off. Roll with Me. Get back to an awareness of the fact that I have the plan, and you can trust it completely. I’ll put the pieces in place. You need your rest. Breathe, rest, and give thanks.
I will not abandon you. I know how often you brace yourself for the day, concerned in advance that you will be met with adversity. You become hyper-alert and filled with worried anticipation. This anxiety is not allowing room for Me and your anxious mindset can easily derail you. Even if you do encounter adversity, – which will inevitably happen in life sometimes, – don’t forget that I will be with you and within you. Concentrate on Me and My protective guidance. You can stop bracing for negative outcomes because there is nothing that you and I cannot handle together. End your fearful anticipation by finding confidence and peace as you trust My capacity to handle anything that comes your way (even the hard things).
Wherever you go, I go. There are days when your awareness of Me feels foggy and distant. Don’t forget that I am ALWAYS with you. That’s a really big deal. I give you purpose, daily. I celebrate, console, drive, and nurture you in accurate doses, – always supplying exactly enough to sustain you. Drink in this truth, and ask Me to steer today. Ride along in the passenger seat, open to all I have in store.
I don’t lead or create you to live a tiresome life. There are far too many well-intentioned but tired Christians out there always overdoing out of some strange approval-seeking from Me. I don’t work that way. My work ethic requires attentiveness to Me and love for your neighbor. Along the way other things will come up, but if they make your head spin or leave you feeling bitter and frazzled, it may mean you’ve lost your focus on one of these two things: love God; love all. I’ll help you sort out the additional tasks that are mounting up; don’t worry about that. Come back to Me. Seek Me with all your heart and you will find Me in your midst. A strange peace will settle over you as My blessings wash over you simply because you’ve turned to Me and let me take the reins. Let Me help you find rest and balance as you focus on loving, purely and simply.
You are My beloved. I sing to you in the morning air and reach to you all day long, even though you don’t always recognize My touch. I want to heal you from your wounds, hurts, fears, and transgressions. I recognize your deep fatigue and I long to help you find rest. Lean into Me. Press your ear upon My chest and hear the constant beat of love, love love. Let Me reassure you that all is well even though appearances may misguide you into thinking otherwise. Step into a world of belonging instead of fearing being an outcast. You are fully acceptable and wanted, My child. Be Mine this day.
You are ready. (More ready than you know). I have been leading, guiding, and strengthening you to prepare you for this day and the tasks before you. You must take this part one day at a time; don’t try to jump ahead. These days cannot be skipped over. There is a process to go through. You are no stranger to good-byes, which are also part of the journey. Lean on Me. My hands are upon your shoulders, giving encouragement, reassurance, and a gentle nudge forward – but My hands never fully release you. I stay in direct contact with you at all times. Move ahead with Me in holy trust.
