Whether you are in a time of sickness calling you to slow down or a time of wellness asking you to carry on, I am quietly attending to you. Notice how things appear lighter in the distance. I work that way, with Light on the horizon no matter what kind of day you have ahead. As you spend this time with Me, I will gently turn your chin in the direction of that horizon. Keep your eyes fixed on Me out there today. I will lead you home.
It’s important to Me that you know how pleased I am with you and that your life can be entrusted to Me. I ask only for your belief. Why do you wrestle with fear and distrust, thinking the steps ahead seem too hard or unsatisfying? Remember Who I am, and My great love and good intentions for you. Fill your mind with the joy of comraderie knowing that you are on a dual mission with Me, the Maker of all. You can find satisfaction even when the tasks are challenging or mundane. How can you not be excited about life knowing that I abide in you and you abide in Me? Join Me enthusiastically today so we can accomplish great works together.
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.
I know you are struggling. There are many challenges facing you and they are blocking your capacity to see Me or be aware of My Presence. I can only try to reassure you I am here…it’s up to you to release those concerns to Me. Once you do, you will see Me more clearly, but I cannot take them from your grip. I designed you to be independent in your choices with that. How I ache for you, – wanting to console you. I am powerfully able to provide for your every need. Please, entrust your whole self and all of your burdens and cares to Me. Trust My ability to care for you completely.
Concentrate on the word “settle” today. Settle in and strive to be comfortable with where you are at and what is going on in your life, because I have you exactly where you are needed for now. Even when the world around is seems to be in chaos, I can help you settle down. Ask for My help to get settled internally, resting with peace and confidence in My loving companionship. All is well, even if it isn’t as extraordinary as you’d prefer. Enjoy My calming Presence with you in whatever position I have placed you in today, trusting how I work and keeping faith in the greater Good to rise above all else.
Trust is a big word. It can feel like a lofty, unattainable goal. Try taking it in smaller increments. Tentative steps with a brave “I’ll try it for a minute” is all you need to get started. I want to lead you forward to better spaces of peace and hope. My desire for you to trust Me is a big ask, I know. The beauty of trusting Me is that I am reliable. I’ll ALWAYS be there for you, no matter what choices you make or what consequences you are experiencing. I encourage you to take that step forward with less anxiety. You can trust Me to be loving you unconditionally already.
I know you are feeling daunted by the things I am asking of you. Whether it’s staying put and making the best of your present circumstances or moving forward and asking you to be open to change, I AM WITH YOU ALL THE WAY! I won’t drop the ball or make you figure things out blindly on your own. Look for ways I am working things out: random offers to help you, pinches of funding to make ends meet. Be Persistent. Things will work out in due time and in the end, even if they seem impossible right now. Look back for evidence of this, and be reminded of my Goodness coming through. I’ll put the pieces together with and for you.
Some days it’s hard to find direction with the way your mind spins with mini panic attacks: “Don’t forget ____!” “Make sure you ____!” It’s at these times when you most need Me but can hardly hear My voice over the din of to-do’s. Stop and recognize that I will equip you, and everything that is essential will get done. Thank Me for My companionship. Recognize your neediness and ask for My help. Only then can I step in to effectively provide you with peace. Remember Who is in charge and Who you belong to. Not everything will get done today, but that’s okay. I’ll still love you and help you see what matters most.
You can avoid preoccupation with future things. Don’t let yourself get tripped up with obsessive thoughts about situations and results that may never actually occur. Stay close to Me, your Shepherd. I know what is over the horizon. Let Me lead you on steady paths. Please, don’t try to race ahead in your thoughts or actions. You’ll only waste precious energy and create needless worry for yourself. Enjoy resting at My feet for a while. Allow Me to take over the planning for tomorrow, and the day after that. Enjoy the scenery of where I have brought you to today.
I will love you for all time, no if’s, and’s or buts. You may be making things harder in your mind than they need to be. Stop your crazy-making ways of striving all the time, as if pushing yourself to the limit somehow pleases Me. That is distorted thinking. Yes, I call you to action – but not action that causes you to burn out. Daily I encourage you to BE STILL and know Me. This time of quiet is necessary to rejuvenate your Spirit. By connecting with Me each morning you can reap the benefit of enhanced awareness of My constant companionship throughout the day. I never leave your side, even when you aren’t ‘being productive’. My love for you is unending.
