Decide to allow ALL of your feelings today. Acknowledge them, examine them, then place them in My all-capable hands. Try to not judge your feelings as “good” or “bad”. Let Me be the judge of your heart and emotions. I am tender, accepting, wise, and compassionate. Nothing you feel goes unnoticed by Me or is seen as “unacceptable” in My eyes. What I long for is to have you be genuine with Me, plain and simple. I’ll help take the pressure off and give you perspective on how to handle whatever is stirred up inside. Look to Me as your confidante today, and be willing to release all of your cares so they don’t become stumbling blocks on the road to wellness.
I am looking out for you. I call you by name. Your time is valuable, so spend it well. While you’re at it, choose your attitude. Seek to hear and bring positive messages of hope. As you work on relaxing and breathing in My calm and peace, anxiety won’t be able to seize you up. There is reason to believe that Goodness lies ahead.
Go easy on yourself. Bit by bit, things will get done. You don’t have to give in to being frantic. I make things manageable when you realize it is My agenda you serve today. Give yourself some of My Grace, and offer it to others. Even if it looks on the outside like things aren’t coming together, you can rest assured that My design is Good and well-thought-out. I need you right where you are today and I’m working to bring Good out of suffering. I never expect perfection, – only a willing Spirit.
You know “hard” and you know “easy. I have been with you as you experience both of these. Even without knowing what today will bring, I can assure you I will always be with you, guarding and strengthening you for the tasks and experiences ahead. When it feels hard, lean your weary head in to My shoulder. When life is easier, share a grin with Me to celebrate. Just begin practicing awareness of My ever-present source of help and Light and you’ll find the weight of all circumstances becoming lighter, freeing you from the weight of anxiety about what lies ahead or how you’ll be able to manage. Live life with Me, knowing you are in My dwelling place.
Picture Me at work on your day, laying out the plans and strengthening you for each task as needed. See Me placing people to interact with along the way: some that you are meant to reach out to and others that you yourself are meant to be touched by. I weave a particular design, and when you open yourself to allowing Me to be in charge, the abundant life it produces will amaze you. Let Me astonish you as you practice heightening your awareness of My Presence in every single aspect of your day. Allow Me in.
I desire to comfort you. Instead of wallowing in the worries and sadness that risk overwhelming you, look to Me. See My loving face aimed straight at you, pouring out compassion and understanding. Rest here within My gaze and realize things will work out. Let gentleness toward yourself and others rule in your heart and your outlook today. I am with you and for you, and I bring Good out of every hard or sad thing you go through.
You’ve got plenty going on right now. Whether it’s slowing down or ramping up, let Me be the one who leads the pace. You’ve heard “timing is everything”, and “God-speed”. Let these phrases boost you with enough energy or patience to do what’s needed just for today. Really try staying in the present, trusting My timing and the speed of activity required of you. You don’t have to be intimidated when things are moving fast, nor do you have to feel agonized when life moves too slow for your taste. This is the perfect time to breathe in trust and exhale confidence in Me. Together with Me, it will all be just right.
You don’t have to bare your soul to everyone around you all the time. Not everyone is equipped to respond in healing ways to you, but I am. I know you and what you’ve been through. I’ve seen the hard things and been at your side when you’ve suffered. Allow Me to soothe your worried mind. Bring Me your present concerns and insecurities. I will be your safe place when you need comforting as well as your lifeboat in the storm. I will lift you up on solid footing again and fill you with the confidence you need to get by.
Come along for the ride with Me today. You don’t have to have it all mapped out on your own. I may take you new places or I may opt for a few stops along the way. Just try resting and breathing, allowing the experiences that come before you to unfold. You don’t have to feel flustered or overwhelmed because I’m the Driver and I know where we are going, – together. Breathe, My loved one. Trust in My ultimate care for you.
Allow Me to calm you. Take these peaceful, quiet moments when you can get them and appreciate how I call you to rest. Sometimes what you need most is to stop and be silent. Listen to small things – clocks ticking, birds calling, washing machine humming, – whatever is going on. Just take notice and appreciate how calming this can be. Then, remind yourself of one of my most important phrases: “Be still, and know that I am God.” I am YOUR God, lovingly present and bringing good out of every circumstance. As you breathe in this truth, exhale doubt and fear.
