You’ve got plenty going on right now. Whether it’s slowing down or ramping up, let Me be the one who leads the pace. You’ve heard “timing is everything”, and “God-speed”. Let these phrases boost you with enough energy or patience to do what’s needed just for today. Really try staying in the present, trusting My timing and the speed of activity required of you. You don’t have to be intimidated when things are moving fast, nor do you have to feel agonized when life moves too slow for your taste. This is the perfect time to breathe in trust and exhale confidence in Me. Together with Me, it will all be just right.
Let’s start fresh today. You’ve been feeling stagnant, listless, and distant, – I know. Not everything has to feel so mundane. Ask Me to enliven your spirit, but don’t forget to invest a little of your own skin in the game. Take charge and make a decision to get up and get going. This can be made easier once you see it is Me who calls you to “Come. Pick up your mat and walk.” I want and need you here; choose to live more fully with My help today.
Do you know how much you are needed in the world? Do you recognize how others look to you for affirmation and encouragement? Do you see how I am at work not just in and for you, but also through you? Therein lies the truth. You are oh-so-valuable. You belong. You fit in and have a place and a purpose like no other. So much of your anxiety stems from doubting this. Ask My Spirit to help wash away the needs and fears so you can interact from a place of peaceful confidence today. Watch as Goodness unfolds naturally when you trust in being My creation with a purpose that suits you perfectly.
It’s important to Me that you know how pleased I am with you and that your life can be entrusted to Me. I ask only for your belief. Why do you wrestle with fear and distrust, thinking the steps ahead seem too hard or unsatisfying? Remember Who I am, and My great love and good intentions for you. Fill your mind with the joy of comraderie knowing that you are on a dual mission with Me, the Maker of all. You can find satisfaction even when the tasks are challenging or mundane. How can you not be excited about life knowing that I abide in you and you abide in Me? Join Me enthusiastically today so we can accomplish great works together.
You may not quite be ready for bigger steps yet. I know you want to rush ahead to My glorious plans for you, but sometimes I pull in the reins so you can attend to smaller things first. My way is grand, with a cumulative effect on the ultimate design. Continue your practice of listening to Me daily. While taking in only 24-hour doses of time, I will place opportunities, conversations, and dreams within your reach when it is My timing to do so. Be attentive to what this day calls for, and simply that alone will be sufficient. There’s no need to rush. You will see it all come together throughout your lifespan. For now, tend My sheep.
I am at work in your life, healing and evolving your body and mind. I have to move slowly, though, allowing you the time needed for building your confidence in and through Me. It’s not that I’m not capable of accomplishing things more quickly. Even though I am omnipotent, it’s you who sets the pace for our relationship. Once you practice trust and learn to release your cares to Me daily, you’ll see how quickly and constantly I am at work. Be mindful of allowing it to be My work that happens. Be open to how I want to utilize your life to accomplish My divine purposes. Abide in Me as I abide in you.
Concentrate on the word “settle” today. Settle in and strive to be comfortable with where you are at and what is going on in your life, because I have you exactly where you are needed for now. Even when the world around is seems to be in chaos, I can help you settle down. Ask for My help to get settled internally, resting with peace and confidence in My loving companionship. All is well, even if it isn’t as extraordinary as you’d prefer. Enjoy My calming Presence with you in whatever position I have placed you in today, trusting how I work and keeping faith in the greater Good to rise above all else.
You can stop worrying about what others are thinking of you. Picture what I think about you instead. I already like who you are, and I don’t want you getting caught up trying to measure your scope of influence. Get comfortable with “being” today: being present, open, relaxed, and self-confident even if you are not contributing to the conversation. You presence alone is part of the plan. Remember that I place you in each situation you find yourself in today. Concentrate on how you are needed and know that what I have in store for you is important and you are enough for the job.
I know you. I see you questioning your credibility and your ability to carry out My plan for you. I am your Creator, – the One who designed you to bring about good things in the world by My Grace. You don’t have to underestimate what you are capable of when you pair your willingness with My will. You can even face criticism without letting it slay you. I will strengthen you so that other’s negative comments don’t wear you down. Wish love upon the haters, and remember that love and Light dominate darkness, always. Don’t let others or self-doubt get you down. If God is for you, who can be against?
You can avoid preoccupation with future things. Don’t let yourself get tripped up with obsessive thoughts about situations and results that may never actually occur. Stay close to Me, your Shepherd. I know what is over the horizon. Let Me lead you on steady paths. Please, don’t try to race ahead in your thoughts or actions. You’ll only waste precious energy and create needless worry for yourself. Enjoy resting at My feet for a while. Allow Me to take over the planning for tomorrow, and the day after that. Enjoy the scenery of where I have brought you to today.
