I am preparing you for bigger things to come. Sit with that thought for a moment. It’s not you who must prepare for My plans; your job is simply to be ready to receive. Be open to learning, trying new things, and receiving My work within you. Anxiety will try to creep in and take over, but you can resist that old habit by recognizing this is not all up to you. I am a trustworthy God. Be child-like with curiosity and enthusiasm for the new things I want you to experience. You will be equipped to step boldly onto the path I draw you to, – confident and assured that My will is doable and sure.
All things are possible with Me, your God. Have you forgotten that? Have you forgotten how much I enjoy surprising you? Haven’t you noticed the serendipitous moments that fall all around you? Take notice of them. I haven’t gone away. Goodness actually abounds, and rises above all. Remember to pay attention to the ways I am working all around you, always aiming for your wellness. Remember in faith that I have nothing but Good intentions to help you.
Grasp My message that you are LOVED. Take hold of this concept and step bravely into the world knowing that NOTHING can stand in the way of My love for you! Nothing. No character flaws, criticisms, or mistakes. I call you to love generously, treat others kindly, uphold justice, and show mercy and respect for all. In other words, do your best to show unconditional love for others just as I do for you. But even if you don’t do that 100% of the time, My love for you is still unconditional. Walk confidently knowing this is true. If you cannot see or receive such a gift of total acceptance from Me, ask for My help to open your perspective. Your life is sacred and has a holy purpose. I have selected you for a reason, and you are My beloved.
My work will get done. It always does, in due time. The trick is to not be so hard on yourself. Adjust your pace and relax into the day. Life’s struggles are behind you, and I give you memories and experiences to harvest now. All is well. Know Me. Find this quiet time as ripe organic matter fueling you with life-giving material. Enjoy this new phase of knowing I hand everything to you without expectations beyond your capacity. I only call you to what comes naturally.
See My Light filter into any space you enter. Notice how it emanates from you and from others. I am all around! Hear Me encouraging you to believe in yourself and to know and use your beautiful talents as only you can uniquely do. Focus your own heart on service to others and in so doing, serve My Purpose to fill the gaps and needs in this world. Hear Me saying “Well done, My faithful one” at the end of the day. I am Healer and Friend, – the way and the truth, – giving Life.
You are My delight, yet you mostly do not recognize it. Why do you have such difficulty believing this? Come to Me. Step forward out of the dark corners you stay shadowed in. I want you to be fully seen. Let My tears of Grace wash any past shame or regret away. If there are talents and skills you are timid about, hear My encouragement to bring them forward. I need all of you, not just the pieces you assess as “good enough”. Hold nothing back from My tender gaze. Allow My Light to permeate, warming you at your core and highlighting the Goodness I have designed in you as your Creator. Step out today with confidence in your true worth.
Come to Me, oh My anxious one. Relax that jaw that clenches so tightly as your mind tries to keep up with your agendas. In My plan, things don’t have to be so hurried. Yes, there will be pressing things to attend to, but you can always approach them with slow confidence,- knowing that I am in charge and trusting My outcomes. You cannot plan for everything in life, so why don’t you stop trying so hard to make things turn out as you picture or imagine? For today, let life unfold and try just observing and participating without attempting to be on top of it all. Let Me be the Master of your time and see how calming this can be.
The day ahead is an open page not yet written on. Use this to your advantage and Mine. In other words, walk in without assumptions or pre-formed conversations and attitudes. Be open to whatever I place before you. Fill it with words of love and encouragement, showing interest in others. Be genuine in your actions and reactions. I will be with you, filling the content with Grace-filled meaning and purpose.
I am bigger than your worries that you aren’t making a difference. I am bigger than your restlessness nights. I see how you worry about being seen as ineffective, insensitive, frustrated, – a fool. What if you walked into your day believing you are already liked and that others are interested in what you have to say? How would you prepare differently? You can walk away from your activities without replaying them over and over in your head, repeating things said or unsaid. You don’t have to speculate on how it was received. I am taking care of all that already so you can release your grip. You only need to go in with confidence, trusting I’ll take care of the results. This is how you learn to live in peace.
I’ll give you all that you need to handle tough situations. While it may take extreme courage to walk through the door, remember that I’m the One opening it and accompanying you in, every step of the way. Look to Me for your confidence. If you need a protective stance, I’ll be the barrier to help deflect things that aim to hurt you. You can be peacefully present even among others who are engulfed in their own hostility. Hold My Hand tightly under the table. I’ll get you through.
