I have many words for you, every day! But I will only send what you are ready to hear and comprehend. When you are so preoccupied with all you think needs to get done or with beating yourself up over yesterday, you may miss out on the Goodness I had on the agenda. Today’s message is simple: Cut yourself some slack so you can appreciate and get pleasure out of what the day holds in store. Pay attention! Really stop to taste your food and to view the colors all around you. Slow down so you can enjoy these things. This will help you better recognize and trust that My hand is at work in your life. Find joy in these little moments. Go ahead! Take time out for enjoyment. See how I aim to bless you.

I see that full plate and calendar before you. It is, indeed, a lot to do. Take comfort in recognizing it is not yours alone to take care of. I am partnered with you the whole way! I also draw others in to help accomplish My divine mission, so be sure to include them by being invitational and trusting. That which is most necessary today will get done; you can safely release the rest. Use your faith in Me to walk peaceably through one thing at a time.
Rely on Me for help when you feel weary. This yoke is meant to be shared between the two of us. Look for Me in the tiniest details and consider it evidence of My great Love for you. A warm beverage or blanket on a cold, rainy day; the splash of fall color on a leaf; a moment of calming quiet in the middle of a chaotic day. The number of ways I choose to surround you in abundant Love can easily be overlooked or imperceptible to you, yet I am with you always, – making the load manageable.
Stop all the “doing” for a minute and quiet your thoughts. Allow a hush to settle around you. Release your surface thoughts to Me and then, eventually, your deepest cares. This is not “magical thinking”; it’s allowing Your Creator, – who knows you more intimately than anyone else on earth,- to gently relieve you of your burdens. I pour out reassurance and guidance for you. Knowing you, I understand your needs with more clarity than even you yourself can perceive. Abide in Me today, trusting My power to heal your life. Follow in line with what I value for you by being selective with your thoughts and how you choose to expend your energy.
You may not be as tired as you think. Stress and anxiety can make you over-think plans for your life instead of trusting in My shepherding. Feel the gentle nudge of My staff reminding you that I am leading the way. Your only job is to follow. When you busy your mind with planning and worries you can easily become frazzled and feel fatigued by it all. Wash yourself free of needless worry. Refresh yourself in My basin of Grace where streams of abundance flow. Allow Me to lead you into this day, entrusting all encounters and tasks on the journey to Me. See how your energy rebounds, supplying you with the bounce in your step needed to traverse the hills ahead.
Most of what we’re worried about never comes true. Release your worries and cares prayerfully into My capable hands. Be confident that I am still attending to every detail even in this confusing time. Close your eyes, finding that still, small place where we can commune without words. I send you My Love-light. Let it wash over concerns that linger. Experience My Grace pouring over these moments, freeing you to relax and find the source of all peace. I am with you, in you, and I have plans in store beyond your capacity to imagine right now. Have faith that what I have in store is ultimately going to bring Goodness. You can trust that I will meet your needs one day at a time.
Look for My hand in the unexpected today. In silent observation, take note of how I call you to act, respond, interact, or receive, – learning to recognize that it may be precisely the unexpected change in plan where My greatest works are being accomplished. Take note of how I supply all you need: patience, endurance, compassion, persistence, energy, then rest. I will equip you fully in this day. Practice trusting Me in these experiences and you will find My peace that goes beyond understanding.
Wait in quiet trust. I am a generous God with plans to give you all you need and even more in abundance. What is of most value is our time together. Life doesn’t always have to be full of “wow” experiences to be satisfying and joyful. Sometimes it is best lived in stillness and quiet. You can stop pushing so hard. Joy doesn’t necessarily accompany accomplishment. Learn to be in awe even in the undone, anticipating Goodness to come. You can also appreciate Goodness in the here and now.
