Change Your Approach to Today

Let this day burst forth like a giant sunrise that makes you stop in your tracks. You can’t help but be wowed in My glory in moments like that. Try viewing your day from that vantage point: taking notice of the marvelous things instead of being blocked by a dreary view of all that tries to make you feel agitated or unhappy. Call upon My Spirit to help you change your approach to this day and the activities I have in store for you. Ask for help to see things as light, manageable, and doable. Put on garments of compassion and tenderness. Laugh out loud at least once today and watch your joy spill out onto others.

Just As Lovely With Flaws

All of this striving for perfection is having a reverse effect on you. Unrealistic self-expectations make people more critical and less accommodating. I never ask for perfection from you. Instead, I suggest you come to Me as little children. What child do you know who has never made mistakes or gotten into messes? What child never weeps or gets mouthy or angry on occasion? And yet, their parent loves them. Let Me console you and encourage you, helping build you back up to recognize you are just as lovely with flaws than without any. Those “without flaws” are usually tightly wound, intimidating, and less approachable. Work on taking yourself a little more lightly, allowing truthful expression of emotions and a whole range of them. It’s what makes you alive. Live in the realm of My love without pretenses and a little more in love with yourself today.

Push the Critic Far Away

Hear Me telling you I am delighted with you! Why do you question and second-guess your every thought and actions with such criticism? That is not how I see you. Your expectation bar may be set a little too high, not allowing room for error and Grace to fill in. Move that bar to a more reasonable, rational, and attainable level. Be kind to yourself in your head, especially as you start to recognize My overwhelmingly unconditional love for you. Bask in this truth, and push the critic far away today, for that voice has no place of belonging in you.

You Matter

Ponder this in your heart: you matter! You are already forgiven for anything you’ve done wrong in this world, so release the grip that past has on your life. All is well now, and you are free to meet Me here. I send My Holy Spirit to stay with you, so you have a personal guide for how to make daily choices. Talk to Me. Ask My Spirit to help when you feel anxious or troubled. And don’t forget – I am with you FOREVER. You are freed, unshackled, and safe. Whenever you strike yourself down, you wound Me alongside you because we are that intertwined. Use the Power of My Love to build yourself up and others. Your chains are gone and you’ve been set free by My amazing Grace.

Lean Into My Sturdy Frame When You’re Weak

You are going to have bumps and bruises along the way. Everyone does. Knowing Me doesn’t make you immune to them. This is not because I am a cruel, neglectful, abusive, or punishing God. Quite the contrary! People stumble through life’s realities, and there is pain and discomfort that accompanies it by the sheer nature of human existence. But I am the Great Healer, Counselor, and Advocate. I am your Companion, placing healing ointments of grace and peace upon you along the way. I see your tears; I cry along with you. I recognize your worries and irritations, never dismissing them. Find Me, the One who knows you, and lean into My sturdy frame when you are weak. You don’t always have to be strong. Just be faithful and trust the walk we are taking together. You can still find joy.

Take Each Task and Conversation Before Me

You are attending to many people and things right now. It’s easy to forget My sovereignty over life when you are so busy, – and perhaps misguidedly thinking “it’s all up to you” to handle so much. With discipline of your thoughts, you can learn to take each task and conversation before Me. Acknowledge My Goodness in all your ways so that My divine hand can guide your words and actions. Find a peace-filled day in this practice of the art of submission. I may have given you much to handle on My behalf, but never will I tip the scale of endurance beyond what I will equip you with to take it all on effectively.

The Art of Being Hopeful

I have so much in store for you! But unlike a child whose anticipation makes them cry out, “I can’t wait!”, – I ask you to be a mature adult who has come to know the importance of waiting. You can still anticipate great outcomes. That is how hope works. Keep your eyes focused on the glorious horizon of all good things to come. Some may even occur in this day ahead! Yes, practice the art of being hopeful. Turn away from negative thinking. Patiently accept each task before you today, secretly knowing the ultimate truth: that I am yours and you are Mine for all times.

Confident in Our Daily Partnership

Remember, I intend for you to live 24 hours at a time. Don’t get so far ahead of yourself with imagined conversations, events, and outcomes. These can cause anxiety and are not of My design. I want you to become dependent on Me, confident in our daily partnership and able to hear My voice and experience My Presence. Don’t be misled into thinking you have to know all the answers and you don’t need Me. Take the grapes from My vine freely, and have your fill of My sustainable supply. It will be substantial enough to meet your needs in this day. Just stay present, concentrating on My daily bread supplied to you.

Erase Those Old Tapes

You don’t have to get caught up in old ways of stressing out. Truly, I intend for your life to be much easier than you make it with all that endless worry. I can help erase those old tapes that have you constantly preparing and planning for the worst-case scenario. Instead, let’s concentrate on picturing things going well. Imagine hopeful things, and focus on them working out well. Then, go and live it out, allowing yourself to enjoy a life of greater ease and freedom from unnecessary angst. If others are not ready to be on board with you, shake the dust from your feet and move on. You are allowed to live a life with happy outcomes. In fact, I want that for you!

Smoother Paths

I am going to clear your thoughts. You can trust Me to help. I will guide you onto smoother paths when you trust Me enough to let Me lead. Nothing will be too hard for you. NOTHING, – because I am here to help and to uplift you with energy and support. I know you get scared and anxious. I see your fears and I hold every single one of them with compassion. All I can say right now is “Don’t worry today. I am helping behind the scenes, and I love you.” Remind yourself of this truth often and it will calm you. Stay grounded in My very real love for you.
