Down Time

Today, pay attention to the gift of “down time”. I generously carve out pockets of time with fewer demands so that you can refocus and rejuvenate. It’s important to let go of the constant pressure to perform. I call you away from this anxious lifestyle to find better balance. Allow yourself to just “be”. Soak in what you see, hear, or taste in the moment. Stay with Me a while in this palace of peace and mindfulness. Observe how calming this is, and how much better you function when you take time out to be still, – even if just for a few moments each day.

My Voice Amidst the Clammer

I designed you to be capable of many thoughts. Your head is often so full that it gets difficult to find Me in there, too, but I am there…whispering reassurance and providing moments of clarity. I give you suggestions and things to consider. Listen for My voice amidst the clammer, telling you that you are loved, wanted, appreciated, and MINE. I am never going to reject you. Never ever. Stop worrying about pleasing or impressing others. It is inherently part of your nature to attend to many people. In fact, this is so ingrained that you rarely notice the number of lives you impact in a day. Your walk with Me is true and pure in its intent, so you needn’t be so critical of yourself. I am well pleased with you. Start your day allowing yourself to fully receive this message.

Releasing Disappointment and Anger

It is better to acknowledge your disappointment and anger, thereby allowing it to be loosened and released quickly. Holding those feelings in or trying to deny them is never healthy. You know that you don’t need to remain under the grip of fleeting feelings like that, because I am a trustworthy God who is ever-present in times of trouble and beyond. Lean into Me when the driving force of emotional winds are strong. I will keep you upright and level-headed, leading you to the stillness outside of its path.

Hopeful Plans For You

Whenever a new year arises, people tend to reflect on where they’ve been and possibilities for where they are going. Be cautious about getting caught up in old ruts where your tires spin in the mud of regret. Also watch out for fear-based projections about what is around the corner,  anticipating that things won’t turn out as you would like or will be too hard to manage. Neither of these things are true. I am a loving God with hopeful plans in store for you. I’ll carry you through hard times and open doors for Good things to arrive in your life and in the lives of those you care about. Choose to concentrate on living fully present in today, and hand Me your past and future. This is how you build new habits of peace of mind.

Take It Easier Today

You have no idea what I’m up to. That’s because you are designed to live in 24-hour increments only. Any more than that is too much to bear, and I am preparing you day by day for what is in store. Take it easier today, living in simple trust of My good plan unfolding just as it needs to. Take things one day at a time and try not to worry about tomorrow. Step confidently into today knowing I am by your side at all times and you can trust Me. You needn’t carry worry about anything bigger than that right now.

I Am Your Protector & Healer

Oh, my anxious one! How I long to scoop you up into My arms like a little lamb, shaking in the dark and cold world. I am your protector and healer. The Light of day is coming soon and will shed new perspective for you. You can trust Me and My plans for Good things to come. I will not let you down. In fact, I’ll keep holding you tightly until you feel confident and reassure again. Stay with Me as long as it takes to settle you down before stepping into the day. I will be with you wherever you go, and continue carrying you as long as you need Me to.

Designed to Live in Peace

I designed you to live in peace. Originally, that was easier to do, but as life piles on it is harder to practice. Peace is attainable, though, – every day. It takes  a choice to defy the negative self-talk when it slithers in, trying to deceive you. Once you give it a hard “no”, turn to My reassurance and open yourself to receiving whatever I deem as possible. You know Me and My ways: always aiming at Goodness and Love. Let Me calm your aching soul today and give you the freedom to experience My holy and unexplainable peace.

An Unhurried Mindset

Everything is already taken care of by Me, so you can step back and take a deep, calming breath. I know how your mind tends to race with imagining plans and details. Like a stallion at the starting gate, you wrestle with anticipation of taking off at full throttle at everything there is to do ahead of you. What if I told you there is no need to hurry, and I gently opened the gate to a pleasing meadow to amble in instead of a race track to get to the finish on? Approach this day with an unhurried mindset and see how things still get done while you are more at ease with the pace. I am here for you.

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.

Exchange What is Most Needed in the Moment

I have led you far and wide, to many places in life. Drawing from those experiences, you can see and trust that I am a loving, provisional God who gives you all that you need. I love you intensely and immensely. I am caring for those you love, as well. My generosity knows no bounds. Over and over again I heal, love, and equip. Knowing this to be true, I call you to move into your day with calm inner-confidence. I need you at your best today, so as you give your all I will bless the interaction with enough strength, energy, compassion, and wisdom to exchange what is most needed in the moment. Live with love today.
