Choose Wonder and Appreciation

I know you are only one person. I recognize your weariness and worried nature. I am your God, and all who place their trust in Me will prosper. My plans are not to destroy you or break you down. Let Me reassure you: there is time enough for everything, even rest. You have worked hard for Me and I want to bless you with noticing and enjoying of My gifts of nature, sounds, sun, smells, laughter, & more. Today need not be such a stressful day. Make it one of Goodness where you choose to be in a state of wonder and appreciation. Relax, doing only one thing at a time so you can be fully present in the moment.

I’ll Help Manage the Stress

There are a million thoughts pulling at you, vying constantly for your attention. When these small matters give out false signals making you think you’re supposed to urgently respond, it can quickly become a pitfall of stress.  That’s why sitting quietly with Me is so essential. I’ll help manage the stress, providing you with perspective. As you become more accustomed to handing your day’s activities over to Me, you’ll see that the timing and outcomes aren’t all up to you to plan, control, or work out. I’ll handle the details. Start to breathe easier by coming to Me often. I promised “Peace be with you”. Trust Me fully to lead your life well and give you this peace of mind.

Uncomfortable Times

The world has many discomforts: physical pain, weather changes, emotional distress, financial worries, relationship strains, grief & loss…I know them all. Come to Me so I can soothe you. I am a loving God who can heal the slightest irritations to the deepest trauma wounds. Hang in there; healing can take a long time. Take heart and reach out to hands there to help sort it out and make things new. Even in uncomfortable times, I will help you endure and move forward. Reach for Me to steady you when the weight and winds make you off-kilter. My way is safe and secure.

There is Always a Way Out

Look up into the expansiveness of the sky and realize how big I am and how bold the possibilities are. Even though there are times when you feel smothered under a heavy wool blanket or boxed into a corner, there is always a way out. My Way is true and Good, allowing for movement and airspace. Know that I am trudging alongside you. Now is the time to embrace hope, recognizing the possibility of a better time. Someday you’ll look back on this and realize we made it through together. Hope in Me and trust in all that I can do.

Show Love Through Your Face

Show love through your face and you can’t go wrong. Demonstrate genuine interest in others. Try to set aside your own agendas, trusting Me to guide both the path and the outcomes today. You’ll move easier this way, anticipating that we’ll meet in every encounter. Operating with this mindset, you won’t have to be so scared of people. Remember, “If God is for us, who can be against?” I have led you to each situation today. You can choose to trust My design and bank on the idea that it’s meant for Good purposes. You don’t have to see the full picture to know I’ve got it covered. Just be yourself, – transparent and personable, – the way I created you. 

Not So Hard On Yourself

My work will get done. It always does, in due time. The trick is to not be so hard on yourself. Adjust your pace and relax into the day. Life’s struggles are behind you, and I give you memories and experiences to harvest now. All is well. Know Me. Find this quiet time as ripe organic matter fueling you with life-giving material. Enjoy this new phase of knowing I hand everything to you without expectations beyond your capacity. I only call you to what comes naturally.

Let Joy Rise Through the Cracks

Cut yourself some slack today. I don’t ask for perfection, so why do you do that to yourself? Take time to sit in My Presence until My love-light puts things into perspective. There is no part of you that is not worthy of My love! Rest your weary head on My shoulder until you can clear away destructive thoughts and inner criticism that rattles you. Stay with Me as long as you can. Find peace and assuredness return to your core and let joy rise through the cracks of imperfection.

Know That I Am God

Our connection is true and valid. Faith is not a fake or worthless thing. (Try it again if you haven’t done it in a while). Stop the worldly pace long enough to be still and know that I am God. I want to calm your anxious thoughts, soothe your worried mind, and give you the gift of listening in total love to help soften your edges. I know the big picture for your life. Listen for My voice of love and tenderness for you. Seek Me with all your heart, and find Me already with you. You don’t have to face the world alone; I am here! Now and for always.

High Bar of Expectation

Try not to set yourself up for “failure”. Too often you measure your value by how consistently pleasant, productive, happy, energetic, etc., you are. If you get caught by unplanned demands that cause irritation or setbacks, you become frustrated and irrationally believe you’ll be “falling short”. This high bar of expectation can become damaging to you. Living My way requires flexibility with trust. Know that all things can be accomplished in due time if they are taken on as part of My purpose and My plan. Sometimes it’s in the unplanned events that I am most able to do Good works.

I’ll Guide You

I am not one to speak in secret codes that are intentionally difficult for you to decipher. My messages are of pure intention. Many of My children look to Me for answers about the future, which I don’t reveal until their time. If you pause to seek My Presence and My voice, I will guide you in this present day. You’ll know when I call you to reconcile or when I send others to console you. You can perceive Me listening intently to your worries, pain, fears, and wants. Feed your soul with daily rest, and put on your shoes with intention to walk on the paths I place before you, just one day at a time.
