It is really important that you take big chunks of time out of your routine to break free from the demands of the day. Learn to sit still, relaxing your face and jaw, – breathing in and out deeply and slowly. I meet you in this space and place every time. Let Me remind you that I am in charge as your loving Provider. All the details will work out in due time whether you obsess about them or not. Strive to be at peace inside knowing I am trustworthy and reliable.
You spend so many hours and minutes mulling over plans. You are a good planner, but today I ask you to be on the receiving end. Allow other’s ideas and decisions to take the lead. Walk along gently and humbly as a great travel companion today. Trust Me; I am yours and I am also theirs. I will show up everywhere you go, -taking care of you. I want to heal your obsessive tendencies of trying to map everything out. Let go a little more today and see how majestic and interesting life can be without all the planning ahead. I will be with you in the midst of it all.
I call out “Come! Follow Me.” Allow excited or joyful anticipation of Good things to take over your heavy-laden mind. You don’t have to dread getting started because I’m already here. You can let go of the tendency to worry or fret. I will work it out somehow before all is done. Let’s move into today’s activities together.
Be okay with yourself for a day. Stop the relentless teeth grinding and self-imposed pressure to perform, handle, initiate, follow through on, and take care of things. Listen to yourself setting that expectation bar so high. Just “be” for a change. Work on mindfulness, – a step by step awareness and contentment without excessive planning or self-criticism for what isn’t getting done. My ways of Peace may not seem aligned with your work ethic and drive. Listen to Me and let Me teach you. You don’t always have to show accomplishment to be a successful, devoted follower of Mine. Practice being calm and peaceful, even around others. Less is more today.
Let’s have a GOOD day today. Slow things down and take intentional breaks, pausing to find contentment in your surroundings. Take notice of My little gifts I send you in the moment. Everyday things, – sights, sounds, weather, nature, – can bring pleasure and calming. Tell yourself often “God’s got this. Things will work out. I can still enjoy today.” You might be surprised at how much of a difference this approach makes when you trust Me to render Goodness out of every circumstance.
You know how to do what I have asked. You’ve gained a particular set of skills, knowledge, and experience from all that you’ve been through. I will use every little bit for Good, – even the parts that have hurt the most going through them. Trust Me; I don’t want you to be hurting forever. Rise up, take a deep breath, and remember who you belong to. No child of Mine goes unattended to.
There is so much in store for you! I know you want to hear about the whole plan from Me right now, but I can’t reveal it all to you just yet. It must be doled out in small increments, – otherwise it would overwhelm you (and I know how susceptible you are to worry). Take delight in today. You don’t have to plan for more than that. Trust Me that things will work out, somehow, because I won’t let you down.
I will show you the way to walk. There are places I need you to take your stories to eventually. For now, consider this a time of preparation; – a time when I am giving you greater insights while you uncover buried thoughts or hurts, guided by safe people I place in your life. You are that safe person for others, too. My wisdom works its way through many layers. Continue allowing Me to lead the process, peacefully moving you forward one step at a time. You don’t have to give in to old habits of anxiety or excessive planning. I can keep you calm.
You’ve taken brave steps lately. Others cannot see or truly understand the effort it takes for you to step out, pushing beyond your anxiety. I see it, though. I know when you are using your trust in Me to back you up, and I’m oh-so-proud of you. I am with you always. With each brave step I restore your confidence. Walk boldly today, strengthened and empowered by My Love for you. Having Me on your side means nothing can stand against us. You can take things in stride.
You needn’t feel doomed by the pressures surrounding you. I can and will help. Offer Me yet another ounce of trust. You have enough and you are enough by My design. You won’t need excess or have to take on extra responsibility. Trust Me to balance the supply and demand between your time and energy. I will provide.
