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.
Keep doing what you’re doing right now: spending time listening to Me. I do speak in ways that are understandable and clear when you stop your frantic pace long enough to hear. I call you to slow down and pause frequently. Breathe in this reminder and truth: I am with you! Always. When I said to you, “My peace I give to you”, I meant it. Freely lavished when you take time to open your hands. Sit with Me and see how awareness of My Presence calms you down. My Love and Grace can melt away the worries.
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.
Life is complex. You must train yourself to stop and refocus often during the day. My guidance is always an available resource but you have to seek it. This may mean purposefully setting down misguided priorities and tasks. I want you to reach for higher things, – loftier goals and purposes. Some things hide in the form of humility and discreetness. Others may require bold action. My purpose may feel like a mystery but it is direct and guided when you open to My channel and flow designed for your life.
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.
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.
Keep listening. I am offering words of guidance to you every day. It may come in the form of an inkling or nudge to call someone. Perhaps I’ll guide you to stop and take notice when a situation comes into focus. Pause and give each your full attention, intentionally responding to these moments. In this way, you can grasp and live the with-God life. I need you in this day for so many reasons. Take hope from this message, knowing you are of great value to Me as part of My loving plan. Be My Presence in the world today.
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.
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.
All of that worry and self-criticism is not of My creation nor is it My design for you. I will be with you even through tears being shed. This work to address and overcome anxiety is hard, but oh-so-worth it. As you recognize habits of worry and patterns of critical thought, I can help you sort things out. I am a restorative God. Push out from underneath those dark clouds by grabbing My hand so that I can pull you back into the Light. Make room for My soothing, reassuring words in your head. You are good, valued and lovable. You are Mine!
