Pace yourself. Take a moment here and there to just breathe in My beauty placed around you. Stop and be grateful for our companionship. You aren’t expected to be busy every second of the day. By stopping to take it all in you will find the amazing gift of My Peace readily accessible anywhere you need it. My almost unfathomable love is available every second of the day so remind yourself often to pause and receive it!
Being with Me is not as hard, strange, or distant as you think. All it takes is a quieting in your thoughts to realize I am already there, – listening, loving, and guiding. I want My Presence known in the world. I want you to speak with Me intimately. The benefits of this are huge, accomplishing My works and also restoring and renewing your Spirit. Without Me you can become dried up, drained, and agitated. I desire life flourishing within you, a wellspring of joy. Be cognizant of My Presence in and all around you inviting conversation between us. I am here!
“That close”. You are “that close” to Me. This phrase is often used to talk about a near miss, but I say the opposite. You are so within reach that we actually overlap, with you-in-Me and I-in-you. I am not dodging you. We are already connected. Your only task is to be receptive and seek awareness of My glorious Presence within, — accompanying, empowering, and healing you. Be mindful and aware of our union today, allowing this to influence your choices and motivate your interactions.
You are a blessing to others just as they are to you. I designed it that way. You may not easily recognize your own need for others, so today I ask you to be mindful of that. I may be trying to speak to, nurture, and guide you in My ways if you open yourself to eyes that see and ears that hear. I also use you to intervene with others. My all-powerful and loving hands are always at work this way. Draw close to Me, allowing connections to others to happen. Do not isolate yourself; this is not My design.
It’s not how you look or what you say that makes the biggest impression; it’s how you treat each other that makes all the difference. Showing patience, humility, and love is a big deal. Attend to My people. Look them in the eye and give them your time with attentive listening. This expresses value and worth. Ask questions; show interest. A nod of understanding can be the most loving thing you do today. See how this bounces back to you, as well, on this “day of love”. Be willing to reach out to someone beyond your comfort zone of familiarity if I nudge you. I’ll be loving on you the whole time, too. This is the way My Love works in the world. It’s as simple and powerful as that.
Try your best to simply be aware of My partnership with you today. Instead of putting Me on a distant pillar as if I’m watching and waiting to catch you tripping up, work on a refreshed image of Me standing alongside you as your partner and friend. I’ll go anywhere with you, you know. I’ll also share in the load of work to be done. You can even enjoy My Presence and companionship, finding things that make us laugh together or noticing things that bring awe into our view. Let’s hang out today, enjoying life no matter what the day brings.
Difficulties and mood changes come and go in ebbs and tides. The trick to mastering them is to stop in the moment and look for Me. I want to reassure you, – guiding you to actions and acceptance so that you can experience My kind of peace. No matter what you are facing, I am present in those circumstances and helping. All will be well. You can find calmness when you stop to acknowledge our relationship and My sovereignty over your life (and the lives of those you love and worry about, too). Choose to breathe in trust.
What are you choking on? Technology, words, unhealthy habits, worries? Take a drink from My well and let it wash over these things. Let Me take precedence in your thoughts. Turn away from these distractions as often as you can, aiming your sights on Me instead. There is so much offered in the world that fills you with discomfort. I call you to look in another direction. I teach joy and healing through learning the art of being still. Work toward simplifying life around you, eliminating excess activity and stimulation. Calm your soul by striving for a With-God life like this. In this very moment you can find Peace and connection to Me. Notice how My Light is all around you.
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.
