Not Everyone is Equipped to Respond

You don’t have to bare your soul to everyone around you all the time. Not everyone is equipped to respond in healing ways to you, but I am. I know you and what you’ve been through. I’ve seen the hard things and been at your side when you’ve suffered. Allow Me to soothe your worried mind. Bring Me your present concerns and insecurities. I will be your safe place when you need comforting as well as your lifeboat in the storm. I will lift you up on solid footing again and fill you with the confidence you need to get by. 

Trust Your Capacity for Positive Influence

Your ability to connect to others comes from within, so use genuine conversation and reflect My Light of Love and Hope through your eyes and warm words. This comes naturally to you when you allow yourself to invest faith in My design. Believe in your inherent Goodness and trust your capacity to influence the world in positive ways today. No vision of that is too big or too small. Take full advantage of the opportunities I place before you to lovingly and brightly impact the world around you. 

Don’t Be Afraid of the Conversations

You don’t have to fear. Don’t be afraid of the conversations and interactions ahead of you. I have forgiven you and your past and I have plans in store for you today as well as into the future. They are still big plans! Wait for it. Know that I’ll be with you and the others today as you talk. I need you there. I put you together with them there for a reason. It’s not all up to you to decide or decipher. Ask them about their interests. See their heart for the work and trust Me in whatever follows. My Goodness is real and present, and will override any challenges. I’ll be there; don’t forget that.

Conversation With Me

Think about Me today so that I can help you with whatever gives you anxiety or frustration. Make it part of your day to say hello to Me. Maybe mention, “Thank you”. Feel free to ask, “Did you notice____?” or “Would you like me to ____?” You fill in the blank in this intimate conversation with Me. Make ours a friendship you can’t wait to share each moment with or each decision made together. I can’t wait to spend the day with you! Let’s chat often, bringing awareness of My company and attentive love ever-so-alive for you. 

Building Your Confidence

I am at work in your life, healing and evolving your body and mind. I have to move slowly, though, allowing you the time needed for building your confidence in and through Me. It’s not that I’m not capable of accomplishing things more quickly. Even though I am omnipotent, it’s you who sets the pace for our relationship. Once you practice trust and learn to release your cares to Me daily, you’ll see how quickly and constantly I am at work. Be mindful of allowing it to be My work that happens. Be open to how I want to utilize your life to accomplish My divine purposes. Abide in Me as I abide in you.

Opportunities to Demonstrate Love

You know how to love. It comes instinctively because I am in you and you are in Me. Be mindful of that and attentive to ways I place opportunities before you to demonstrate love. Perhaps in a gesture of kindness or an act of service for another. Maybe as a listening ear or in a concerned question you pose sensitively to another’s worry or pain. You may even be called to make light in a situation using humor when laughing it off is the best reaction. Don’t get caught up by fear of failure here. You can’t go wrong when your intention is genuine. Love wins, always.

Tell Them

Others have their eye on you, – watching with curiosity how you live a with-God life instilled with such confidence and hope. Tell them. Tell them how you know Me and how trustworthy I am. Tell them they can know Me, too. Tell them how I understand their pain like no other can: intimately and compassionately, – and how I heal. Tell them that My Light outshines and overpowers any darkness they are experiencing. My love rules with kindness and forgiveness. Tell them how I listen, and I know every detail of their struggles as well as their joys. Reassure them that I have Good plans in store. I am Your God. I am theirs, too. Speak truth to those who will listen in a hungry world.

Slights and Offenses

You are more loved than you may realize. The tiniest slights and offenses that happen in daily life can skew your recognition of how likable you are. Don’t let these tiny, false claims get to you. Any thought that you are somehow unworthy of attention is a lie. I am the One who knows you and loves you. Ultimately, this is all that matters- but I know how you long to be close to others and not excluded or misjudged. For now, let Me in to soothe the hurt and provide reassurance. Confidence will return as you trust Me with your relationships. Ask Me to help remove any defensiveness from you so that others can draw closer. It’s OK to be vulnerable now and then.

Use Your Heart Instead of Words

Allow the draw of our relationship to keep you seated with Me long enough to gain your fill of truth and direction. I ask you to hold your tongue today and practice the art of listening before speaking. Observe those who are hurting and silently, secretly, offer them up to My healing hands. Take the pressure off of yourself trying to come up with the right words. Instead, stay true to the heart behind the tongue. Try this simple technique and see how My Love -Light grows through quietly attentive interactions. Be My Light on the world using your heart instead of your words.

How You Approach Things

I never leave you to handle things all by yourself. I can redeem past hurts & sorrows and help with current challenges, making Goodness happen, but you are still allowed the freedom to choose how you see and approach things. Consider bringing your perspective before Me for review. Allow Me to help sort things out and assist you with clearing your mind. As you become open to My loving, gentle guidance I will give you direction on how to handle whatever you are encountering. In choosing to push your momentary distress aside and trust Me instead, I’ll make way for a fresh outlook on the most helpful approach to your situation.
