Be My Presence in a Hurting World

Hear Me tell you loud and clear that you are loved.  Your life and purpose are of great value to Me. Assist Me in combating darkness with compassion and healing. Strive to listen to the pain of others and be My Presence in a hurting world. I will stock your reserves with enough supply of tenderness and boldness on the shelves to meet the demand, and I’ll dance joyfully with you when the day’s good labor is done.  

Release Concerns about Outcomes

My ways are higher, with lofty goals in store for you. I want you to get reacquainted with this concept – broadening your expectations with an openness to bigger things. In order to move forward this will entail letting go of life as you know it. To recognize My Plan for you, you must be willing to release concerns about outcomes. Let Me take care of that end. Be bold and brave, My love. You are ready for much more. 

Credibility

Don’t worry about your credibility. If I call you to speak up or to step out boldly, I am the One making you credible. Worry about living by My standards of justice and kindness. It is Me who builds your platform, so let Me handle that. You just need to concentrate on the message. Always make it a message of hope, – especially for the broken, the excluded, and the downtrodden. You can’t go wrong by speaking of love and working for justice. 

Every Little Bit Used for Good

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. 

Brave Steps

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.

Speaking Truth

Speaking truth can be a lonely place. You have eyes that see and a heart that longs for acceptance and belonging, but sometimes the ones you want to be close to cause hurt and disappointment when you speak truth. I will send supportive people to you along the way, giving you refuge for your soul in these encounters. Stay strong, facing bitter winds of rejection. Know that I will hold you upright even in the roughest challenges. I am always with you, hemming you in before, beside, and behind you.

 

Face Any Problems Triumphantly

Just show up today. You can do it! I know what you are capable of. Don’t under-estimate the power and importance of your presence and Mine. Remember you are valued and needed wherever you go. I’ll walk with you through any doors. Picture them as holy gates, triumphantly entering them as you face any problems. I work that way, you know. There is nothing you and I can’t handle together.

Reassurance

Don’t get caught up in trying to imagine everything and work it all out in your head. I don’t work that way. Instead, let the worries of today fall away for a second as you face Me in your mind. Take a deep breath and continue to seek My face. You don’t have to fear what I’m going to say. My words are always of reassurance. You are okay – and loved. I’m right here beside you and am never going to leave your side. Let’s step into today together, trusting that I’ve made you ready and equipped you for any tasks or encounters that take place. I can and will help you focus, giving you right words to say when the time comes. You can be brave with Me at your side.

Whatever is Thrown Your Way

You are braver than you think or feel today. Rise up, throwing reservation to the wind.  Step up to the plate to take your turn at bat. Despite nervousness, insecurity, and worry, you can take a full swing at whatever is thrown your way. I will orchestrate the connection between your effort and My outcomes; you just need to swing, then head to first base. One step at a time, one day at a time. Every day doesn’t have to be a home run. You will find life way more manageable if you just concentrate on one base at a time, knowing you are in My league and I’m cheering you on as a wise, trustworthy Coach.
