Purpose in Appreciation

Taste and see the Goodness I place all around you! Get out and enjoy the fresh air, soaking in the sights and sounds I put near to enthrall you. There is purpose even in the simple act of appreciation. I want you to notice things like beauty, smell, and taste. Open your eyes to all I place before you today. Feel My love for you in the giving and receiving of these gifts. Point it out to others. Too often, people pass quickly by spectacular things, – so hurried and preoccupied with non-edifying distractions. Come to Me to show off the bouquet of delights you pick out from My offerings, allowing Me to share joy with you as we experience and notice things together. See how this eases your soul.

Life Doesn’t Have to Get to You

I have made it as easy as possible for you to receive My love and My gift of peace. It’s simple, really. I am already here! Ever-present and ever-ready to assist you to breathe ease into your anxious little heart. It takes one simple act on your part: to choose to believe in Me and receive this free gift. Choose Me. Choose “us”! Life doesn’t have to ‘get to you’ if you start to accept that I am already there for you, – never dropping or abandoning you. I will help you get through anything and everything. I even help you rediscover joy. Say yes to our togetherness and allow yourself to breathe a sigh of relief as I comfort you this way.

Let Me Soothe Away the Strain

Know that I am God. My desire isn’t to have you work yourself to the bone. I want you to treasure your spirit as I treasure you. Lay your weary head on My shoulder. Let Me soothe away the strain. I am indeed pleased with you. Work less hard in the sense of taking things one task at a time and not overwhelming yourself. Look for Me in the eyes of others who see you as kind, compassionate, and capable. They recognize your fatigue, too, so there’s no need to hide it. Close your eyes and rest on My shoulder as needed today. Let Me help comfort and rejuvenate you as you drink from My well.

When You Feel Defeated

Cast your cares upon Me. Send Me ALL of them, – not just the ones you think are ‘worthy’ of My attention. I care about all of your wishes, dreams, and worries, so don’t hold back. I also know when you feel defeated. I am listening, resolving, and I aim to comfort you. Drink from My well of thirst-quenching water sent to soothe your innermost thoughts. Let Me help make it well in your soul. I am here for you.

Your Presence is an Extension of Me

You’ll have what it takes to address the needs of the day. I place you among My people with a directive to show love, hope, and encouragement by sitting attentively with others, validating their experiences, pain, or discouragement. It won’t necessarily be up to you to fix with the right words, though. Just be comfortable pausing to listen without responding at times. Your calm, loving presence will be enough and can be an extension of Me, showing how much you care in a way that words aren’t always needed. I’ll help you figure out what to say and when to say it when you pause to acknowledge My healing ways and ask for guidance. I am with you all, always.

Focus on Self-Kindness

Today is a good day to hole-up and focus on self-kindness. Bundle up with Me, cozied in and staying protected from the elements. You can still focus on self-care while working or attending to home-life because you and I are One. I am with you wherever you go and in whatever you are doing. Take your time. Slowing down to an easier pace will serve you well on this day of attending to better self-care. I call you to stay in close awareness of our tight, comforting relationship. My love for you is real, and we can take delight in togetherness today.

Not In Harm’s Way

I know you and I long for your safety and protection. I am not sending you to the wolves and will not allow you to be put in harm’s way. I will be watching for potential danger, taking your hand and guiding you on the right path. You are a grown person, full of competence and the ability to use good judgment. I trust that in you, and have entrusted a set of gifts which are needed in this fractured world. Others look to you for the same comfort and guidance I provide to you. You can handle it, for I give you nothing greater than what I equip you to do. My yoke is easier than you worry about.

If I Close a Door

If you are challenged by disappointment, hurt feelings or discouragement, turn to Me for comfort. Do not retaliate when these things happen. If I close a door or you encounter hardships, consider that I may merely be nudging you in a new direction. I never place hurt in someone’s life, though. Don’t attribute things that cause pain to being derived by Me because I am not that kind of God. Instead, recognize that I accompany all when they are hurting or in trouble. I’ll walk with you, picking up the pieces and providing healing into a new design for good. Work on not taking offense. Instead, take steps of trust, knowing that you are ever so loved.

My Designs Are Enjoyable

Enjoy! Live a little! Bask in My Presence and take your own agendas lightly, allowing Me to do and accomplish Good work in you. Keep your mind open and attentive to those around you. I speak in many ways- sometimes in those who are seemingly insignificant. You are good at what I designed for you, so take confidence and comfort in knowing and trusting that whatever I place before you is something you will be equipped to handle. My designs are perfect, and even enjoyable. Use your compassionate heart to attend to everyone I place in your path today. Live in My Light.

Questioning Your Purpose & Value

I know you sometimes question your purpose and value. It’s there, though – woven inside your heart by My Spirit, which is living in you. It might be even harder for you to see in yourself, but others recognize and are comforted by you. Today, try trusting that what you contribute is enough. You don’t have to demonstrate exceptional things in order to be valued. What if I told you just sitting there, being present to Me, is enough? Follow My lead on this today, practicing being comfortable in your own skin without “works”. Be My tangible light in the world, brightening the experience of others you encounter. Take joy in this simple kind of loving attentiveness.
