Challenges Handled With Care

Let Me soothe your soul. Take in deep breaths, choosing to mentally inhale trust and exhale needless worry. No matter what happens, I’ll help see you through. Picture your current challenges as if they are packaged in a brown box, attended to by you for a little while. Deliver each one on to Me so I can ship them off labelled “handled with care”. I do care about you and your every concern. I’ll get you through safely and securely.

Carving a Way Through

Gradually you are coming into awareness of the life I have planned for you. Even with life’s setbacks, – which sometimes seem like an unending onslaught of problems, – I am with you, carving a way through. There is a bend in the road up ahead. Together, let’s walk on it. Let Me sling My arm over your shoulder as we approach it cheerfully. With Me, all things are possible…even living joyfully.

Show Kindness and Respect

You know how to be loving. Some days it takes a lot of energy to muster up “politeness”, though. It can be challenging to show kindness and respect to others who blindly offend. It helps to try and recognize that everyone deserves dignity in My eyes. You do; they do, too. The Good news is that you don’t have to be able to do this all on your own. Ask for My Grace and My Spirit to help you – giving you restraint and/or words when the time comes to interact. Remember, I will be with you, mediating the conversation. Trust that I love you no matter what. 

Press On

I recognize your weariness and the emotion that accompanies it. Your anxiety and stress, – sometimes including sadness or irritability, – leave you feeling overwhelmed. Press on. Come to Me with all of it and rest a while by My side. Let the tears fall. Then, after you have been able to share the load with Me, rise up. Notice that I don’t stay seated, pushing you away while saying “Just get going”. No, – I rise with you. We’ll press on together. We can handle anything this way. Let’s take it slowly, – one day, one hour, one moment at a time.

Worry is Senseless

I take care of your every need. Every bite of food, each reassuring glance, every ounce of hope instilled is all part of My handiwork. In fact, when you think of it, all worry is truly senseless.  Try this for a day: pay attention to all that I provide – adequate food, clothing, a home, transportation, an able body, a bright mind. You will have everything you need to be exactly where you are supposed to be. I’ll help you show up and I’ll even help you finish the work. You are never alone. 

A Time of Peace is Coming

I have so much in store for you! My yoke is meant to be easy, – easier than you are making it right now. Let Me carry the heaviest part while you simply walk beside Me. I know how your concerns weigh you down. Look to Me with pleading eyes and find how much Mercy, Love, and Grace I’ve been pouring on you all along. This will help you rest more assured that a time of peace is coming. Trust that I will help work it all out. 

Stop Being Brutal on Yourself

Stop being so brutal on yourself. Daily you are learning how to draw closer in awareness of My Presence. I am the constant in your life, – omnipotent, all-encompassing, and REAL. Live in My Love; forgive, embrace your tenderness, and be thankful. Entrust yourself, flaws and all, into My loving arms. It’s OK to cut yourself some slack. 

Mistakes Happen

You are forgetting the truth that I love you just as you are! I do not expect perfection. It is in your flaws and your talents BOTH that I dwell. Mistakes happen. Redemption does, too. Aim your sights on choosing to do what is pleasing in My sight, and leave the judgement of outcomes up to Me. Do all things in love, then trust yourself and Me enough to know that it is Good enough.

The Great Healer

I am the Great Healer touching every wound and soreness. You are dealing with illness and stress; parts of your body are struggling. Discomfort and worry are vying for time in your head. Sit still. Breathe. Really, – breathe deep and relax, clearing your mind out and being present in front of Me. I am watching over you. Whatever needs to be revealed will be shown in due time. Worrying about it won’t help; trusting Me will! I attend to all things – even your uncomfortable symptoms. Picture Me as physician, listening and attending to your description of whatever concerns you. Do what you can to be healthy and well, and let Me take care of the rest. 

I’ll Help Sort Things Out

I am not a dismissive God. The things you think about are not considered too trivial for My listening ear. Let Me love your tender heart and anxious thoughts today. Please don’t view Me as a critical judge of you. Instead, see Me as a compassionate, attentive, and accepting God. Only then can you begin to release the things that bind you. Using skillful hands, I’ll help sort things out. Let Me take over your worries about the hard stuff so that you can concentrate with peace of mind. Focus only on that which is placed before you today, letting Me take care of the rest.
