Allow Me to Take the Pressure Off

There are so many things clamoring for your attention as you replay thoughts from previous encounters or imagine interactions yet to come. Both are needless activities. I call you to awareness of the present! You are Mine. Stop and take stock of everything I am providing in this very moment: food, warmth, love, safety, security, – plans for your welfare, not for dismay! Your flesh and bones are in working condition for the tasks I have in store for you. Stop agonizing over insignificant details. Give in to My Will, discovering how I make life flourish for you. Abundant, tender, meaningful life. As you rely on Me to take care of you, worries about the future will lessen. My reliable provision is there for you, so allow Me to take the pressure off.

Unnecessary Anxiety

You’ve lived a life filled with constant concerns, some of which are real and valid. Other times they cause you unnecessary panic and anxiety, with you running at a hectic and frantic pace. I am leading you into a new era! There is a time for everything, and now is the time for peace within. Learn the art of slowing. Engage with each moment presented to you, training yourself in the discipline of attending to one thing at a time.  Take notice of all that I am doing in, through, and around you as you sit back in a wondrous stance absorbing the marvelous view. All is well when you really stop to think about it. Stop with all the relentless striving and take stock in the goodness and calming I am offering to replenish your soul. I call you when you are needed, but I also give you rest. Simply be thankful.

Be Slow to Judge

Be slow to judge. We have a world full of people’s opinions, and it is in one’s nature to assess people or situations as “good” or “bad”, “right” or “wrong”. My teaching is different. I ask only for love. Love first, and then any judgment can be properly filtered into how to respond. I also teach you to love yourself first, and recognize the constant barrage of self-criticism within attacking you, trying to lead you astray. For some, this respect and love for self or others comes very hard. Their tendency is to lash out against love due to past hurts. Remember with these that love can still endure and even triumph. Love fuels compassion, patience, and endurance. If you learn to trust Me in these matters, My Grace can aid in bringing healing from poor judgment and misguided actions. Persist in doing Good.

That Central Place of Knowing

Somewhere deep inside, you already know that I am with you and for you. You recognize that you are loved for exactly who you are in that central place of knowing. The world and its challenges make awareness of that deep truth murky and blurred. I call out to you, “Be still…I am here, waiting.”  Find Me here, and recognize once again that I’ve been with you all along. You are never alone or forsaken. Whatever is going on, we can handle it together. Let My love originating from that central place refresh and enliven you once again.

Focus On One Thing

You can choose to rise above any darkness that seeks to distract you. Hone in on one thing at a time, mindfully approaching each task and every personal encounter with your full attention to whatever is in front of you in the moment. Do not worry about discerning or controlling a laundry list of things to do. Instead, be receptive to My nudge that brings that one thing into focus. This way you can accomplish My works without getting your feathers ruffled. See how the pressures of life are lessened when you practice the art of mounting up and taking on just one task at a time.

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.

No Need to Over-Indulge

Taste. Breathe. These sensations can bring simple pleasures that I designed and crafted unique to each person. Some smells and tastes bring aversion; others, fond memories and delight. Take note of the smell and taste as your food is being prepared today or consumed to sustain life. Let Me ask you: are you eating to live, or living to eat? It is important to care for your body respectfully and not neglect it. I am a God who provides pleasure, comfort, and healing through food. There’s no need to over-indulge. I bring sustenance and Goodness, and there is room at my table for all to take, eat, and have their fill.

Caring, not Worrying

There’s a difference between caring about things and worrying about them. I’ve designed you with personal preferences and abilities, with an intent for you to attend to things that matter to both of us. It’s okay to want good things and to value pieces of life that are precious to you, but stressing out about them and fretting over things that are not worth the investment of your energy or resources is not part of My plan. Excessive worry pulls you off track. Try releasing things that draw you away from the lifestyle of peace and joy I intended for you. Picture yourself living more at ease. Perhaps it is the things you think you most care about that you actually most need to let go of worrying about in order to find contentment.

Take Breaks From Thinking Too Much

Be wary of things that fill your mind with needless worry. Instead, take intentional breaks from thinking too much. Get up, soak in the views I place in your presence. Notice the beauty, the stillness, and color or sounds. Focus on whatever seems to catch your eye, and acknowledge My companionship in whatever you experience. Remind yourself that you are Mine. In momentary breaks like this I will bless you with the peace of mind you crave.

Surprises Around the Corner

Today is yet another gift from Me. I want you to enter it with joyful anticipation of good things ahead. As you set your mind on a hopeful perspective, your actions and outcomes will follow. When the old ‘dread factor’ tries to pull you down, confront it sternly and say it doesn’t belong here. Don’t let it get you down. No matter what, there is always a reason to hope. Look for enjoyable surprises around the corner and see how I provide delight when you are receptive to seeing it.
