You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.
Do you trust Me to be caring for you? Because I AM, quietly and gently – sometimes imperceptibly by you, but ever-so-present, always. Close your eyes for a moment and let Me remind you of My great Love for you. I send forgiveness, strength, courage, love, and ways for you to find peace. Go gently into this day with less anxiety as you heighten awareness of My support to you. Pay attention to My call asking you to be My Presence in the world. You are capable of this; I will equip you with whatever you need. Above, underneath, and through it all is My love and caring for you. You will see and sense that today. Look for it.
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.
Whether you are in a time of sickness calling you to slow down or a time of wellness asking you to carry on, I am quietly attending to you. Notice how things appear lighter in the distance. I work that way, with Light on the horizon no matter what kind of day you have ahead. As you spend this time with Me, I will gently turn your chin in the direction of that horizon. Keep your eyes fixed on Me out there today. I will lead you home.
I know you are struggling. There are many challenges facing you and they are blocking your capacity to see Me or be aware of My Presence. I can only try to reassure you I am here…it’s up to you to release those concerns to Me. Once you do, you will see Me more clearly, but I cannot take them from your grip. I designed you to be independent in your choices with that. How I ache for you, – wanting to console you. I am powerfully able to provide for your every need. Please, entrust your whole self and all of your burdens and cares to Me. Trust My ability to care for you completely.
You know how to love. It comes instinctively because I am in you and you are in Me. Be mindful of that and attentive to ways I place opportunities before you to demonstrate love. Perhaps in a gesture of kindness or an act of service for another. Maybe as a listening ear or in a concerned question you pose sensitively to another’s worry or pain. You may even be called to make light in a situation using humor when laughing it off is the best reaction. Don’t get caught up by fear of failure here. You can’t go wrong when your intention is genuine. Love wins, always.
Others have their eye on you, – watching with curiosity how you live a with-God life instilled with such confidence and hope. Tell them. Tell them how you know Me and how trustworthy I am. Tell them they can know Me, too. Tell them how I understand their pain like no other can: intimately and compassionately, – and how I heal. Tell them that My Light outshines and overpowers any darkness they are experiencing. My love rules with kindness and forgiveness. Tell them how I listen, and I know every detail of their struggles as well as their joys. Reassure them that I have Good plans in store. I am Your God. I am theirs, too. Speak truth to those who will listen in a hungry world.
Allow the draw of our relationship to keep you seated with Me long enough to gain your fill of truth and direction. I ask you to hold your tongue today and practice the art of listening before speaking. Observe those who are hurting and silently, secretly, offer them up to My healing hands. Take the pressure off of yourself trying to come up with the right words. Instead, stay true to the heart behind the tongue. Try this simple technique and see how My Love -Light grows through quietly attentive interactions. Be My Light on the world using your heart instead of your words.
I’m a tender God. I’ve been with you your whole life! Look back and notice the times when things worked out, when good people came through for you, and when you felt truly loved and cared for. I lovingly pick up the broken pieces caused by hurt, stress, and worry. When darkness fights for control in your head, misguidedly convincing you that everything is falling apart or that you aren’t lovable, recognize it as a lie. Come to Me and feel My consoling Presence affirming your worth and the established plan for Goodness ahead. My love for you rises above all else.
Are you fighting against the tide? Go willingly where I am taking you and the way will be easier. If you are in high water, I will help you stay afloat. I will also deposit you back on shore for time to rest and recuperate. Entrust Me with the plan because I love you. I don’t want you to be so anxious all the time. Go with My flow, for My yoke is easy and My burden is light. There is a Divine direction in all of this.
