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.

Removing Toxic Thoughts

I am your Lord of light, warmth, and security. Relax and unclench your jaw. Remind yourself right in this moment of how I’ve loved and cared for you in the past, always bringing you through rough patches. You are not destined for terrible things to happen all the time! Ask for My help in removing toxic thoughts and needless worry. Allow Me to wrap you in a blanket of reassurance today. Let Me warm you to your CORE. I am yours, I am yours, I am yours!

Falling Into Place

Why are you so stirred up? Instead of picturing things “falling apart”, set the stage in your mind as if everything is “falling into place”. That’s how I work. Ultimately, things DO work out. I know it’s hard to see that in the middle of the storms and chaos of life. Be still for a moment, though, and recognize that I am God and I am at work. Take the pressure off by performing only for Me and My outcomes. My standards might be different than your expectations. It’s okay to lighten up and let things go, even if it’s not in the direction you thought it would go. All things will work out in the end. Relax into that concept today and see how your anxiety dissipates.

Go Where I Ask

Do you love Me enough to go where I ask today? I know you are tired. I see your fatigue. Nothing goes unregistered by Me. Take some of that pressure off your shoulders simply by acknowledging My supply. I give ever-enough to get you through the day, every day. You don’t have to feel responsible for everything all the time. (I know how you think). Let Me be in charge, and you just follow along. Before you know it, things will get done. All will be well.

Take Your Time

It’s OK to go slowly today. You don’t have to rush into, through, or out of things. Take your time, noticing the little things you might otherwise have missed if you hurried. Appreciate that My hand is at work in, through, and around you, – moment by moment. See how calming this is, and how it eliminates anxiety. All is well.

Follow My Safe Lead

I am reaching for you, – standing right here, – facing you. Open your eyes and heart to greet Me. Say yes to My invitation allowing Me to console you like no other can. I know you’ve been hurt. I can’t protect you from all pain caused by others in this world, but I can lift you out of it. It may require walking away from hurtful situations. When it is time, I will make the move and signal your way through. Follow My lead. Hold on to the fact that I will never leave your side. With Me,  you are safe again.

Slowing

I am aiming you toward a slower pace. When you have less activity going on you can be more observant. My Love arrives not because of your performance or accomplishments. Rather, it arrives by Grace in moments of time glimpsed here and there. You’ll miss its impact when you are too busy or frantic to take notice. Be grateful for less mobility right now. Come, hang out with Me in the stillness, observing what begins to stand out and make sense to you. My gifts will arrive most clearly in your slowing.
