Trust Me in Little Increments

Picture Me standing right in front of you, – eye to eye. I want to stop you in your tracks until you firmly see Me looking with all-knowing eyes. Don’t try to dart away from My gaze. I am worried about you because I see and hear your distress. O, My lamb, – if only I could show you all the Goodness ahead, – but I cannot. A vision of that magnitude of change would overwhelm you if it came all at once. You must trust Me in little increments of time. Let today unfold in tiny moments without worry over what has passed or what is yet to come. Let Me spare you the details as you take My hand in child-like trust.

Don’t Be Secretly Distressed

I know your thoughts, – every one of them. Don’t think you need to “screen out” what you bring to Me. Hand over your hard thoughts, too: the worries, lusts, fears, passions, and judgemental criticism. Allow Me to help you see them more clearly in the Light. I don’t want you to be secretly distressed by these things. I won’t hate you for your thoughts or struggles. I desire to be with you, guiding your steps and protecting you from cliffs and danger zones. Share it all with Me as the One you love, and be kinder to yourself. You are human, and I created you. I take you even with your mistakes and setbacks. Let Me fill you with My Grace to strengthen you against things that are harmful, providing internal and lasting Peace instead.

Tempo

Let Me set the pace. Allow Me to set the tempo of this day, – rhythmically, – with crescendos and with rests. You will have all you need to take each step. Lean into Me as a child holding My hand and learning to dance or as an adult swaying to a step in unison with Me. Join Me on the dance floor today under My Grace-filled and graceful lead. 

I’ve Got Your Back

Accept any difficulties and know that they are merely temporary, like water dripping off your back and evaporating under My radiance. All trials are smaller than the power of My love. When doubts make you weary or anxious, just lean into Me and trust My confident lead. Know that nothing and no one can take you away from Me. I’ve got your back! 

Unanswered Questions

Stop trying to make sense out of every piece of your life. It’s alright to sit with unanswered questions, trusting that answers are for another day. My Peace I give freely to you. Sit quietly with Me; it’s Me you are thirsty for. I give reassurance to calm your nerves. Let Me engulf you in Light as you take in My whisper: “peace be with you”. Be confident even in the unknown, –  knowing you are a good person designed and loved by Me. 

Head Into the Day Willingly

I need your help today, even if it’s hard or you make a mistake or others are insensitive in the process. Make it about Me, and I will bless that. I ask you to spread joy, leading with kindness, compassion, and dedication. By heading into the day willingly, – even if you don’t feel like it, – you are honoring Me and I will bless that. There will be time enough for everything. I have laid out the path before you, and you will find grateful faces surrounding you. I am a generous God, not a harsh, demanding one. Change your perspective from one of being “hurt” or “guilty” to one of being ready to see Goodness. My love abounds and the earth is dancing all around you. Rise up and join the dance.

I Calm the Waters

Like a bubbling brook splashing in every direction, you are hurried and flustered. Stop. Absorb My Presence. See how I calm the waters in an instant. I Am Almighty God. I AM, -not you, – although My hand is indeed at work within you. Practice just being in My Presence. This will take a great act of trust, but you are capable of trusting that I am working for your good. My love abounds and I desire for you to be at peace, resting in My reassurance instead of racing about in frenzy. 

Kind Eyes

I am near. Upholding you, drawing out the tears, smoothing your brow. Take solace in Me. In times of trouble, of which there are and will be many, know that I am God – who bears all things and works things out for Good in the end. You won’t always see those results. I have kind eyes; look to them and release your sorrow and worries to Me. Here you will find comfort and reassurance to get you through the day. 

I Am A Safe Place

It’s okay. Settle down. I like it when you stop to become calm, nestling closer to Me for reassurance. I am always a safe place; a shelter from the storm. Retreat into My refuge when you feel overwhelmed. My intentions for you are Good, – laced with strength to endure and protection from feeling defeated. When things don’t appear to be working out like you think they should, cozy up to Me. I am here and I love you more than you can even comprehend. You and I cannot be separated, and no amount of brokenness is beyond My capacity to heal or repair. Come to Me and be reassured and renewed in confidence.
