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.
Turn to Me, oh anxious one. Be not afraid. In the Light of My compassionate Presence, you can accomplish all things, be healed, and be strengthened for good works. I see what you are facing in the day ahead. You are ready for the tasks at hand. Don’t trip yourself up thinking it’s all up to you. Walk one step behind Me, allowing My lead to guide. Our love will rule as the better way.
I know what I have asked you to do can be hard. When you feel discouraged, – even angry at the load you carry for Me, – remember that I am right there with you carrying the weight and renewing your strength daily. Don’t fall under the deceptive one’s message that you “can’t handle it anymore”. That is a lie, because with Me, all things are possible. Your life, your purpose, and your joy matters to Me immensely because you are My beloved child. Step persistently into today with confident trust that your deepest desires have been heard and are being attended to by Me.
Why do you stress out with mental replays of the day before or past interactions? What’s done is done. Regretting that you didn’t do more or say the right thing won’t help. Nestle into My reassuring arms, trusting Me to make something Good come out of everything. I suggest that when anxious thoughts creep up, train yourself to say, “What I did was enough. God will take care of the rest.” The hardest part is choosing to believe this very truth. Be consoled by the fact that you don’t have to fix everything. Offer Me your best and I will do whatever mending is needed.
You don’t have to worry so much about agendas, impressions, and accomplishments. Today is a day of connection. I call you to listen well, smile, laugh, and be yourself without agonizing about it afterward. I am in you and all around. You may even find yourself enjoying the interactions today. I love you just as you are, and there is freedom in allowing this to sink in. You can trust that I will bring you peace, because I am the Prince of Peace, after all.
Things will get done. You like everything neat and tidied up. I watch you aiming for no loose ends and mentally forming strategies to handle everything before you in an effort to not feel overwhelmed. Today I invite you to meet Me and relax even with the undone. Give yourself permission to take breaks. As you sit and are present with Me in the moment, My Grace is attending to your every need. Allow Me to soothe your frazzled mind as you practice being still. Know My love for you is real.
Difficulties and mood changes come and go in ebbs and tides. The trick to mastering them is to stop in the moment and look for Me. I want to reassure you, – guiding you to actions and acceptance so that you can experience My kind of peace. No matter what you are facing, I am present in those circumstances and helping. All will be well. You can find calmness when you stop to acknowledge our relationship and My sovereignty over your life (and the lives of those you love and worry about, too). Choose to breathe in trust.
What are you choking on? Technology, words, unhealthy habits, worries? Take a drink from My well and let it wash over these things. Let Me take precedence in your thoughts. Turn away from these distractions as often as you can, aiming your sights on Me instead. There is so much offered in the world that fills you with discomfort. I call you to look in another direction. I teach joy and healing through learning the art of being still. Work toward simplifying life around you, eliminating excess activity and stimulation. Calm your soul by striving for a With-God life like this. In this very moment you can find Peace and connection to Me. Notice how My Light is all around you.
You don’t need to feel guilty or undeserving when I lavish good things on you. Receive. Enjoy. Appreciate. Take nothing for granted. My will for you includes kindnesses bestowed upon you to nurture your Spirit. Life doesn’t always have to be hard. Greet this day looking forward to what I have in store for you, and let your heart be light as you anticipate great things!
All things are possible with Me, your God. Have you forgotten that? Have you forgotten how much I enjoy surprising you? Haven’t you noticed the serendipitous moments that fall all around you? Take notice of them. I haven’t gone away. Goodness actually abounds, and rises above all. Remember to pay attention to the ways I am working all around you, always aiming for your wellness. Remember in faith that I have nothing but Good intentions to help you.
