Destined for Purposeful Use

All living things have the capacity for Me to work in and through them. Knowing this truth, how can you view your interactions with others differently today? Will you show more interest? Would you be more eager to listen than to expound your own opinions? Will you step into leadership roles, bravely trusting that I’ve equipped you? Go now in peace and enthusiasm to hear and be with Me. Walk with humble confidence, trusting that My Light is in you. You are destined for purposeful use in a world that is hungry for Me. 

Loved and Respected

You know Me. Live your day knowing that no matter what, I love you deeply and unequivocally. Your anxiety will lessen as you concentrate on this fact and stop beating yourself up. You have done well, confronting things and working to improve communication with those around you. Even though that’s been a hard job, it is Good. You are already loved and respected. Now, just know Me more. Include Me in your days so I can gently caress away the fears and hurts. Do not fear impressions, because you are on an equal plane with others. Let’s celebrate that today.

Trust Your Inner Knowing

You’ll know what to say and how to say it when the time comes. Trust your inner knowing, which is My Spirit at hand. You can believe that I am with you and with them in that moment when you converse. I shed Light on all situations whether personal, public or private. Just open a window in your mind and remember that I’ve already been let in. It’s okay to let your guard down. Breathe in fresh receptivity.

Freeing You from the Weight of Anxiety

You know “hard” and you know “easy. I have been with you as you experience both of these. Even without knowing what today will bring, I can assure you I will always be with you, guarding and strengthening you for the tasks and experiences ahead. When it feels hard, lean your weary head in to My shoulder. When life is easier, share a grin with Me to celebrate. Just begin practicing awareness of My ever-present source of help and Light and you’ll find the weight of all circumstances becoming lighter, freeing you from the weight of anxiety about what lies ahead or how you’ll be able to manage. Live life with Me, knowing you are in My dwelling place.

The Speed of Activity

You’ve got plenty going on right now. Whether it’s slowing down or ramping up, let Me be the one who leads the pace. You’ve heard “timing is everything”, and “God-speed”. Let these phrases boost you with enough energy or patience to do what’s needed  just for today. Really try staying in the present, trusting My timing and the speed of activity required of you. You don’t have to be intimidated when things are moving fast, nor do you have to feel agonized when life moves too slow for your taste. This is the perfect time to breathe in trust and exhale confidence in Me. Together with Me, it will all be just right.

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.

You Fit In

Do you know how much you are needed in the world? Do you recognize how others look to you for affirmation and encouragement? Do you see how I am at work not just in and for you, but also through you? Therein lies the truth. You are oh-so-valuable. You belong. You fit in and have a place and a purpose like no other. So much of your anxiety stems from doubting this. Ask My Spirit to help wash away the needs and fears so you can interact from a place of peaceful confidence today. Watch as Goodness unfolds naturally when you trust in being My creation with a purpose that suits you perfectly.

Shrug Off the Negative Self-Talk

My face really does shine upon you. Stop doubting that. If only you could see how much you truly radiate! Perhaps then you could ease up on the self-reproach. Your view of yourself gets so distorted. Small past errors or unhealthy choices get blown way out of proportion. With My help, learn to shrug off the negative self-talk. If you need to make amends, do so now and get it over with. There’s no need to live weighed down by exaggerated thoughts or past mistakes. Let’s move on, My beloved, basking in Light.
