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.

Heal Hurtful Self-Talk

Lay those burdens aside. Come to Me in all your fragility, presenting those agonizing thoughts and experiences you keep re-hashing over and over again in your head. Allow Me to warm you from your core, like hands hovering near an open fire. Let the warmth of My reassuring love heal that hurtful self-talk, turning those lies to ashes. You are loved, purely and simply, just as you are. The past mistakes are already forgiven. There’s no benefit to clinging to them anymore.  Let the flame of My healing Spirit take over, renewing you for Good. It’s time to let that past go.

Hang On There

“Hang in there” seems like a flippant statement when others try using it to console someone during hard times. Instead, hear Me saying, “Hang ON there”. Hold My hand in your most worrisome state of mind. Cling to Me in the difficult experiences you are going through. Run to Me for reassurance and safety, seeing that I hold you tightly, without letting go. Hang onto Me, for I will steer you through, navigating the rough patches and providing shelter and refuge in the storms.

Push the Pause Button

When you sit with Me, pushing the pause button on the rest of the day, it’s easier to experience how calming My Presence can be. Take the effort to pause, making the time to rest in My Light and comfort long enough to reassure you. No matter what lies ahead in this day or the next, you don’t have to live frantically driven by anxiety anymore. You can live cupped in the palm of My hands, steadying you and bracing you for the things you face. Gratitude will flow easily from this. No matter what, I’ll be there, giving exactly enough comfort and strength to accept and bear what is. 

I Am Dedicated To You

You are Mine for all times. In sickness and in health; for richer or for poorer. Just like a marriage vow made in love, I am committed and dedicated to you. But unlike a marriage with its human ups and downs, – its flaws and passions and disappointments, – I am steadily present and constantly attentive to you. I am filled with desire for your well-being. Come to Me as your first love. Together we can be dedicated to loving ways in the world. Let Me show you support. In return, voice your commitment to Me and allow My love to heal your tender heart. You’ll receive My overwhelming love for you and find comfort and security in My Presence.

All Feelings Allowed

Decide to allow ALL of your feelings today. Acknowledge them, examine them, then place them in My all-capable hands. Try to not judge your feelings as “good” or “bad”. Let Me be the judge of your heart and emotions. I am tender, accepting, wise, and compassionate. Nothing you feel goes unnoticed by Me or is seen as “unacceptable” in My eyes. What I long for is to have you be genuine with Me, plain and simple. I’ll help take the pressure off and give you perspective on how to handle whatever is stirred up inside. Look to Me as your confidante today, and be willing to release all of your cares so they don’t become stumbling blocks on the road to wellness.
