Contemplate doing life with Me today. Think about everything from a shared perspective, with you and I viewing tasks, sights, and interactions with people together. Respond accordingly, – willingly taking on whatever I lay before you with the knowledge that I am working right alongside as well as within you. You can enjoy it all, sharing wonder and delight inwardly with Me. My Good intentions are fulfilled as you work with Me and love tenderly. Step lightly, cognizant of how your footing and pathway are being lit step-by-step by Me from morning till nightfall.
Do not forget about Me. You were once touched by the realization of My involvement in your life. It’s easy to be distracted by things, people, or concerns. Take time to acknowledge our relationship daily. Be aware of My majesty over your life, – guiding, supplying, healing, and holding your every need in My capable palms. I have a destination in mind for you. It takes into account your skills and experiences, calling you closer to Me while touching the lives of others in ways I have designed. All this requires listening to and recognizing our inter-connected relationship. When you forget this, you are easily pulled into wrong directions. Instead, celebrate our Oneness as your life unfolds and accomplishes My purposes, – building the kingdom together.
Show love through your face and you can’t go wrong. Demonstrate genuine interest in others. Try to set aside your own agendas, trusting Me to guide both the path and the outcomes today. You’ll move easier this way, anticipating that we’ll meet in every encounter. Operating with this mindset, you won’t have to be so scared of people. Remember, “If God is for us, who can be against?” I have led you to each situation today. You can choose to trust My design and bank on the idea that it’s meant for Good purposes. You don’t have to see the full picture to know I’ve got it covered. Just be yourself, – transparent and personable, – the way I created you.
Our connection is true and valid. Faith is not a fake or worthless thing. (Try it again if you haven’t done it in a while). Stop the worldly pace long enough to be still and know that I am God. I want to calm your anxious thoughts, soothe your worried mind, and give you the gift of listening in total love to help soften your edges. I know the big picture for your life. Listen for My voice of love and tenderness for you. Seek Me with all your heart, and find Me already with you. You don’t have to face the world alone; I am here! Now and for always.
Reach out to the lonely. Use My kind of eyes to notice the fragile threads of people’s lives. Pay attention to those who feel unaccompanied or disconnected. It doesn’t require much to pause and connect with eye contact, a consoling nod, or sharing a genuine word of encouragement. I will shed light on opportunities to take time and notice others. Recognize the Light in you that provides strength and guidance on holy paths. You are not too broken to be My hand in the world.
Kindness. This is the gift I seek for you to know and to give. A word that sustains. A listening ear. Hear My voice whispering soft lullabies of reassurance to you. Experience My tender touch on your life, wrapping you in soft blankets. Be gentle and kind with yourself and others in this hurried and hurting world.
Listening to Me does not always mean something ‘profound’ will be heard. Instead, I may instead be sending simple guidance, like “Make that call”, “Get up and take a short break”, “Go for a walk and notice the breeze”, or “It’s okay to feel ______”.The biggest thing to realize is that My conversation is constant. I want to hear from you. I am inside and around you, accompanying every moment and intertwined in every experience. Talk to Me. Share with Me. Level with Me. I already know what’s going on but I want to hear it from you. I am here, listening and responding in mysterious but real ways.
Even though sometimes life is hard or filled with difficult emotions, I am showing up. I am with you. You might feel like glimpses of Me are only fleeting, but that doesn’t negate My constant Presence. The trick is learning to recognize Me in occasional encounters but also still trust that I’m here even when you don’t feel or sense My nearness. In choosing to trust, you may find that you actually start recognizing Me more often. Check it out. I’m with you, – ALWAYS. Loving, supporting, and guiding you, – and attending to your every need.
Practice the art of peaceful smiling. Just pause, look around, and put forth a grateful grin toward all you see in the moment, knowing that you and I are meeting right here, right now. Like our own little secret, you can take pleasure in this connection. Trust that I am here, bestowing Goodness upon you. I am working everything out for your future so you don’t have to worry or think about that right now. Just smile and say, “You’ve got this, God, – and I’ve got you, so all is well”. Thank Me as I smile upon you, as well.
My Grace is enough for you. It will sustain you through your difficulties. Of course I am pleased with you! You are My beloved. There is no one beyond My reach of love – especially not you, My child. I call you MINE, loving you deeply and even more than you love your own circle of loved ones. Look up. See Me gazing at you with such great tenderness, wanting to erase your worries and remove your pain; wanting My love for you to be enough. You know what that feels like. Just as you wish for your deep love of those whom you treasure to be enough for them, I want that for you.
