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.

How You Invest Your Thought Time

It is important to fill your head with messages that edify, not destroy. Be cautious with how you invest your thought time. There is so much out there in social media and on screen that feeds dark thoughts with distressing images that are hard to let go of. Pick something else to read or watch today; something that will brighten your mood or help you grow in compassion and insight to others. This is a kindness you can do for yourself and something that will have My hand in it. Think on things that are pure and lovely today, and see how this lifts your spirit.

When You Berate Yourself

You are My beautiful creation. I pride Myself for who you are and ‘how you turned out’. It pains me whenever you try to be something other than yourself, or when you berate yourself. I made you with an engaging personality. It’s not healthy to constantly second-guess your words and actions that come instinctively out of you. Don’t fear being yourself, or even being the center of attention at times. I set up opportunities for you to be there so that My light can shine brightly through you. I in you, you in Me. Your task is to learn to allow for this to be so and walk in this truth.

Give Room to Pause

Walk with Me at My pace. Let things slow down a bit and give room to pause now and then. Take a break from noise, electronics, and social media. Look outdoors. Breathe in the stillness and calm. You are so hard-wired to be doing things all the time, but I tell you it’s OK and good to NOT “do” for a while. You are learning the beauty and importance of mastering this skill. Just be and soak it all in with amazement and wonder. Notice the calming effect this has on you and your perspective. Grace-filled moments are all around, so be replenished as life and next steps unfold.

The Power of Loving Acceptance

You are My child, and oh-so-beautiful to Me. Look to see My eyes of love for you, which is real and powerful. I think of you as wondrous, kind, and full of Goodness. That is what others see in you and know to be true. They are drawn to you because of it. Let them know how pleasing they are, too, and find your irritability or anxiety becoming overshadowed by the power of loving acceptance. See how this releases unnecessary stress. No worries or fear of commitment are warranted. Let your heart be softened by relying on and trusting in the art of My design.

Be a Blank Page

Today, try being a blank page. Go without an agenda, or pre-planning everything. Watch life and experiences unfold before you without the compulsion to be in charge or take over when others aren’t stepping forward. Give yourself the time and space to absorb My gifts to you. I’ll help you fill in the blanks, but for now I just want you to be observant. Open your eyes to all I have in store, and watch the colors I fill the page with.

Your Busy Head

You are bright and beautiful. Your busy head spins with bright thoughts and dark ones intermingled, and hardly a quiet moment. Today, if you notice the cogs on that wheel working double-time, try shutting off the power and allow yourself to be still. Yes, – be still, and know that I am God. I love you just as you are. There’s no need to prove yourself through performance. Be still, and be reassured that all is well for everything beyond your control. I am working to relieve you and protect you from harm. I am trustworthy. Take heart in the stillness as you refocus and are revived.

You Are My Masterpiece

You are My masterpiece! How I’ve loved painting, sculpting, and rearranging you into a beautiful image. Do you recognize the beauty in you? How I would love to see you walking confidently today. Can you imagine the possibilities if you saw yourself as fully acceptable, accepted, richly blessed, and basking in grace? If only you would allow yourself to trust this truth using a simple act of breathing, “I choose to believe”. You can do this! It’s not egotistical to choose self-acceptance when viewing through the lens of My eye. I want goodness to surround you, and I desire for you to receive My love for you. Say yes! Say thank you. Choose to believe; that’s all I ask.

Take a Break from Constant Pressure

I know you intimately, including your good intentions and efforts to do right in the world. Remember, though, that your value is not placed in works. Your worth comes from who you are innately, by My design. Your attributes, skills, interest, passions, and flaws all combine into a divinely beautiful package. Don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself today, enjoying your crazy, silly side, too. My ways are serious business but include laughter and joy. Take a break from the constant pressure to plan, preside, and predict. Look for the lighter side of things today as you practice relaxing. You can lighten up with My help. 

Try Trust For A Minute

Trust is a big word. It can feel like a lofty, unattainable goal. Try taking it in smaller increments. Tentative steps with a brave “I’ll try it for a minute” is all you need to get started. I want to lead you forward to better spaces of peace and hope. My desire for you to trust Me is a big ask, I know. The beauty of trusting Me is that I am reliable. I’ll ALWAYS be there for you, no matter what choices you make or what consequences you are experiencing. I encourage you to take that step forward with less anxiety. You can trust Me to be loving you unconditionally already.
