I won’t overwhelm you with too much to do. Hand off the excess to Me. Trust Me to solve the puzzle and master the plan, all in due time. Focus only on today, addressing one thing at a time. Do so with an attitude of acceptance and peace, allowing calmness to rule instead of frenzy. This is how you walk in My footsteps; one small step at a time.
I see and feel the way pressure grips your heart as you start this day. Take a deep breath of reassurance and hold it. I can calm the stress once you realize and remind yourself that I’m the One in charge. This takes a willful act of trust, allowing yourself to be led by Me instead of trying to figure it all out on your own. Inhale confidence in My capacity to provide. Breathe out old ways of worry. Let’s work together on releasing pressure through faith in My love and plan for you.
Keep doing what you’re doing right now: spending time listening to Me. I do speak in ways that are understandable and clear when you stop your frantic pace long enough to hear. I call you to slow down and pause frequently. Breathe in this reminder and truth: I am with you! Always. When I said to you, “My peace I give to you”, I meant it. Freely lavished when you take time to open your hands. Sit with Me and see how awareness of My Presence calms you down. My Love and Grace can melt away the worries.
Walk into this day knowing that I have the Master Plan. You may think you have it all mapped out, but if a change in direction comes along don’t fight or resist it. Accept it with open palms, receiving it as gift. Resist the tendency to become bothered or anxious when these twists and turns come about. Receive each moment and LOOK TO ME. These may be small reminders of My partnership and My walk with you. Use this as an opportunity to trust Me more, listening and releasing the tendency to want to control things instead of trusting My control over your life.
You are special to Me. I am so pleased with you! You are very hard on yourself and this breaks My heart. Don’t fall into the trap of needless anxiety or unwarranted shame. I call you to a life that THRIVES! Abundant life, filled with Goodness. Face your days with eyes seeking and anticipating My Goodness. This perspective is critical to your capacity to receive. Thwart the tendency to worry or over-plan for potential disaster. Smash those worries with a rock of confidence in My powerful plan for Goodness. Be bold and purposeful on this path.
I will bless you in the waiting. I will give you a vision for how things will work out eventually. You can trust Me with the plan and outcomes even if you don’t see it yet. I won’t leave you hanging. I’ts OK to be vulnerable around others now and then. They can relate to you when you let down your guard. With Me you have nothing to fear. Learn and practice being okay with not having everything figured out all the time. My Grace is enough to fix that.
Linger with Me for a while. Don’t rush off into your day without our time together because you need My love and encouragement to help settle down your anxious heart. All of your worries calm down when you stop long enough to realize I am your God. I am taking care of all your needs. There’s not a single thing I won’t address with and for you. When mini-panics start to arise, hand the details over to Me. Remember I’ve placed you wherever you are today for a purpose and a plan. Muster up confidence knowing I need you right where you are. I’m supplying everything that is essential to get things accomplished lovingly and thoroughly.
