Aim for What is Doable

I am a reassuring God. I often see you pushing yourself, striving for that unattainable perfection and trying to be the most thoughtful, capable person who is always on top of everything. Allow Me to bless you with full acceptance of your efforts; I deem them to truly be enough. Yes, I want you to be kind, loving and thoughtful and to use your talents well, but not at the expense of beating yourself up with unrealistic expectations. My bar for you is no higher than what you can comfortably and reasonably accomplish today, – no more and no less. Aim for what is doable and leave the rest for Me to attend. Accept My fully pleased response to you, which never has to be earned. I give it freely.

Let Today Be Gentle

Let today be a gentle day. Walk at an easy pace, soaking in whatever you observe in your surroundings. Take note of how My Light shifts and highlights things slowly around you. Learn how to hone in your observation of things like this and find its calming effect. I want to help you reduce all unnecessary stress, and this kind of slowing will help. Breathe in trust, exhale doubt.

I Am Never Disappointed In You

First and foremost, I want you to comprehend that I am never disappointed in you. It is you who puts critical judgement on your emotions, actions, and thoughts, – deeming them as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and equating them with worthiness. I don’t operate that way, though. I want you to know you are worth loving and being attended to. Allow yourself to receive My unconditional love. See how it changes you to become a person at peace, just as you are called and designed to be.

Soothe Frazzled Nerves

Take your time today. Move slower, – ‘mindfully’, as some call it. Try emptying your mind of all those to-dos and just be a listener and observer in the moment. See how much this soothes frazzled nerves and replenishes your reserves for the day ahead. Take in the quiet, trusting Me with how the day will play out. You don’t have to have it all mapped out. Take it easier today, leaning into trust of My design.

Sit Still

It’s a gift to truly sit still, absorbing sights and sounds in the present moment. You can allow memories to surface, or thoughts and imagined scenarios for future events to rise and be acknowledged, but try to return to awareness of the present. Now, picture Me sitting with you, – noticing the same things that catch your attention. Smile at our connectedness that occurs without words. I am oh-so-familiar with your every thought and reaction. Tenderly, turn your gaze to Me, sensing My all-consuming love for you. Push busy-ness aside and see what joy I can stir up for you as you spend time with Me like this. Let Me re-energize you by restoring balance and rest in your life.

Roll With the Circumstances

You have what it takes. Speak boldly, as I have prepared you to do. Also speak kindly, with nurturing words toward yourself and others. Nothing needs to rile you. You can easily choose to roll with the circumstances that come upon you today, knowing I am with you no matter what happens next. I am present even in the unexpected, so don’t allow anxiety to cast a shadow over the bright things about to happen. You can handle everything when opting to do it in partnership with Me and under My Good plans for you.

Irritable Moments

I am with you every step of the way. I don’t call you to be perfect. You will have minor irritations in this world, which don’t make you a bad person. In these irritable moments, just pause and inhale deeply. Hear Me acknowledging, “I hear you. I know you. I get it.” Remember that this, too, shall pass. Perhaps through this internal dialogue with Me, the mere act of having Me validate your experience will be the calming effect you need to endure this short-term storm. Turn to Me to live with ease like that.

On Managing Thoughts

You are so critical of your every thought. Sometimes thoughts enter our head that are completely fleeting and irrelevant or inaccurate. Just because a thought enters your mind doesn’t mean you are responsible for placing it there. Consider each thought and release it if it doesn’t align with who you are called to be or how you like to approach life. I’ll help you sort that out. In the meantime, work on recognizing that thought entries are beyond your control and not a sign of inherent goodness or badness. What you DO with them is what matters. Seek the heart of God in what you choose to keep your mindset on, and you can’t be steered wrong.

Susceptible to Anxious Ways of Thinking

You are susceptible to old, anxious ways of thinking: fearing that you’ve somehow ‘done something wrong’ or are ‘not measuring up to some yard stick of approval’ by Me or by others. When these thoughts come up, I want you to recognize them as false and throw them out of your head. Mentally, toss them out of the window and into the trash, because My love for you is unchanged and ever-steady. I am readily available and My love is unending. Any messages trying to tell you otherwise or steal your confidence and peace are not brought on by Me, your loving Creator. Listen to My truth: you are enough and you are beloved.

Not In Harm’s Way

I know you and I long for your safety and protection. I am not sending you to the wolves and will not allow you to be put in harm’s way. I will be watching for potential danger, taking your hand and guiding you on the right path. You are a grown person, full of competence and the ability to use good judgment. I trust that in you, and have entrusted a set of gifts which are needed in this fractured world. Others look to you for the same comfort and guidance I provide to you. You can handle it, for I give you nothing greater than what I equip you to do. My yoke is easier than you worry about.
