One Small Step at a Time

I won’t overwhelm you with too much to do. Hand off the excess to Me. Trust Me to solve the puzzle and master the plan, all in due time. Focus only on today, addressing one thing at a time. Do so with an attitude of acceptance and peace, allowing calmness to rule instead of frenzy. This is how you walk in My footsteps; one small step at a time.

I Can Calm the Stress

I see and feel the way pressure grips your heart as you start this day. Take a deep breath of reassurance and hold it. I can calm the stress once you realize and remind yourself that I’m the One in charge. This takes a willful act of trust, allowing yourself to be led by Me instead of trying to figure it all out on your own. Inhale confidence in My capacity to provide. Breathe out old ways of worry. Let’s work together on releasing pressure through faith in My love and plan for you. 

Get Rid of the Excess and Clutter

Listen and watch. I am at work in and around you. I recognize your doubt, – wanting to believe in My every word but worrying that I won’t come through. I am working things out in the situation that pains you, but it takes time to see My results. Entrust Me with all of your affairs so that I can put them in right order. Let’s get rid of the excess and clutter in your head and surroundings.  (This might seem impossible during the holiday season, but nothing is impossible with Me). Breathe in a sense of trust, choosing to invest in it as an act of will. Having faith in Me and My divine plan for you is a worthy investment, indeed. 

Trust My Master Plan

Walk into this day knowing that I have the Master Plan. You may think you have it all mapped out, but if a change in direction comes along don’t fight or resist it. Accept it with open palms, receiving it as gift. Resist the tendency to become bothered or anxious when these twists and turns come about. Receive each moment and LOOK TO ME. These may be small reminders of My partnership and My walk with you. Use this as an opportunity to trust Me more, listening and releasing the tendency to want to control things instead of trusting My control over your life.  

Hard On Yourself

You are special to Me. I am so pleased with you! You are very hard on yourself and this breaks My heart. Don’t fall into the trap of needless anxiety or unwarranted shame. I call you to a life that THRIVES! Abundant life, filled with Goodness. Face your days with eyes seeking and anticipating My Goodness. This perspective is critical to your capacity to receive. Thwart the tendency to worry or over-plan for potential disaster. Smash those worries with a rock of confidence in My powerful plan for Goodness. Be bold and purposeful on this path. 

Things Will Work Out Eventually

I will bless you in the waiting. I will give you a vision for how things will work out eventually. You can trust Me with the plan and outcomes even if you don’t see it yet. I won’t leave you hanging. I’ts OK to be vulnerable around others now and then. They can relate to you when you let down your guard. With Me you have nothing to fear. Learn and practice being okay with not having everything figured out all the time. My Grace is enough to fix that. 

A Purpose & A Plan

Linger with Me for a while. Don’t rush off into your day without our time together because you need My love and encouragement to help settle down your anxious heart. All of your worries calm down when you stop long enough to realize I am your God. I am taking care of all your needs. There’s not a single thing I won’t address with and for you. When mini-panics start to arise, hand the details over to Me. Remember I’ve placed you wherever you are today for a purpose and a plan. Muster up confidence knowing I need you right where you are. I’m supplying everything that is essential to get things accomplished lovingly and thoroughly. 

Anxious Battles

There are small, anxious battles waging for control in your mind. I can and will help you focus and conquer them. My intent for you is to have full peace of mind. You can get there moment by moment. It takes an act of will to place all of your cares and fears before Me. Trust that I am working things out for your good. I am a loving God, capable of all things. Nothing is too big for Me. Breathe in My Grace filling you with confidence and calm. Peace I leave with you, given freely.  

Do Life With Me

Nothing else matters but living life with Me. You wonder how to do that when you have so many obligations to attend to. This misperception comes from a limited mindset. I am in and through ALL things, including you and the people, activities, and events you encounter. Learn to recognize Me speaking to you as you do life with Me. I am present, strengthening and accompanying you. My Spirit and Light are woven intricately into your surroundings and tasks. Take comfort in this, reassured that nothing will separate Me from living in and around you. NOTHING. I am beckoning you forward; you don’t have to live in dread anymore. 

Unnecessary Guilt

Getting rid of unnecessary guilt is key to finding peace. Stop thinking you are so responsible for everything. You can’t control the outcomes of every situation, nor do I expect that from you. Work on recognizing when you are taking unnecessary blame on yourself. Sometimes all your effort still produces disappointing results. You can’t fix others emotions. Show that you care through your love, but release the desire to control outcomes. Hand that part over to Me because I know what I’m doing. Be kinder to yourself. I recognize your good intentions, and I love you.
