Ready for Whatever

No matter how hard the effort looks, just show up today. Show up to work, to conversations, to visits, – whatever I lay on your heart. I will make sure you have what you need to make it through. Show up for Me, because I’ve asked you to. When you arrive with an attentive presence like this, I’ll overwhelm you right back in good ways. It won’t be nearly as hard as you think or fearfully imagine it to be, because you can trust Me to equip you for every little detail. You’ll have the words and energy making you ready for whatever. You can rely on Me to prepare you thoroughly.

Relax Your Face

Relax your forehead, face, and jaw. You carry so much tension at times, unaware of how hard you are striving and concentrating. Remember, you can release the planning into My capable hands for a minute and actually find a sense of calm and peace descend. Just close your eyes for a moment and breathe deeply, perhaps telling yourself “It’s okay. I can trust God to help work it all out.” You CAN trust Me; this is an absolute truth. I do so love you and am caring for every detail and concern in your life.

You Are Valued

Every now and then I see your insecurities cropping up. In deep places, old scars and messages trick you back into thinking you aren’t good enough for love, attention, security, or good gifts. This couldn’t be further from the truth. You are loved and valued by many, and most importantly, by Me. It is My heart toward you that is good and kind, and I want to lavish you with love. Don’t let your “worthiness” be tainted wrongly by the broken world. Today, allow yourself to believe in your value not only through what you bring to the table, but also by the love you so deservingly are sent. Receive it in full, with no strings attached.

Give Me Your Lists

There are many distractions tugging at you for your time and attention. Practice slowing and choosing one thing at a time to focus on. I can help you organize what to prioritize. Give Me all of your lists and the weight of your worry. I am here, always trying to make it more manageable for you. Problems arise when you look at the mounds and forget I am here, steadily taking care of the stacks, one by one. Look to Me for guidance and lean on Me for security. Peace is available when you remember I am in your midst and will never allow things to be too much to handle. Trust Me: we can get through anything together.

Step Back and Be Calmed

When you find yourself in a place where you are super worked up about something, it is probably time to step back. Remove yourself and check your thoughts to see if you are being tripped up by thinking “it’s all up to me” to handle or fix or address. That simply isn’t true. I am your God. I am sovereign over all things. Step back until you can see and be reminded of this deep truth: that as your God, I am with you and looking out for you. Maybe I only need you to show up and offer your presence, because I’ll handle the rest. Leave any “fixing” up to My capable hands. I want you to find peace again, not living agitatedly with anxious and stress-filled approaches. Step back, breathe, and be calmed by how I am at work in your life.

Gentle Reassurance

Cozy up to Me, like a small child who wants a story read before bedtime. Come close, with child-like hunger and trust for special time together. I am safe, comforting, and trustworthy. I recognize your vulnerable side that just needs to be held a while. When no one else “gets” that or sees you or provides the validation you desire, you can count on Me to be ever-present and aware of all your intricate needs. Come to My open arms for gentle reassurance. I’ve got you, My child; you needn’t be afraid.

Accept My Unconditional Love with Gratitude

Linger with Me a while until you sense My all-encompassing love for you. Let all anxiety be dispelled in this moment. I AM. I am HERE. I am HELPING. I ACCEPT YOU FULLY. Move on from past mistakes and regrets, accepting My unconditional love with gratitude. This is true living. You are Mine, and my love for you endures through everything.

Time With Me Isn’t Wasted

You’re not wasting time when you spend it with Me. I help you get into gear and focus. I calm you down whenever you push the pause button and remember to join Me in trust for My design of your day. Yes, I want you to give your all, but I don’t want that to be driven by anxiety or crazy-making. Come to Me first with all your imagined plans and to-do lists, and let’s sort them out together. I am with you and enjoy spending the whole day together, really.

Goodness Can Always Be Found

Life is full of choices. Loving others is a good choice. Making time to be creative is also a good choice. My Spirit can be found in both places. I appreciate your giving heart. There will be time enough for everything, so seek peace and follow after it. Stay with Me and see how I make each day anew. Goodness can always be found, and you can choose to focus on it.

Be Inspired in the Act of Noticing

I see you. I understand your ways of thinking and I know how you long to become and remain inspired. Truly, there are many little inspirations delicately placed all around you. The trick, – or actually the skill to develop – is seeing and recognizing them as such. A jewel of light shining on a blade of grass in the morning dew can remind you that I am here. I have this day planned well for you already. Be more inspired in the act of noticing today, and enter with joyful anticipation knowing that you cannot know what to expect. Only I know that. Be not afraid or worried; I have Good things in store and am here to help you through any challenges.
