I know you try your very best every day. I see you striving diligently to work hard, be thoughtful, and be fruitful. Thank you, My child, for your dedicated service to Me and My kingdom. Some think all of this hard work only brings rewards in heaven. I tell you that you can expect good things as soon as in this day ahead – not because it was “earned”, but because I desire your happiness. Awareness of My constant Presence with you is all you need to find true peace. From there, happiness can fall into place. Find Me in your midst, joyfully awaiting your attention and companionship.
Remember that your “best” is good enough. You don’t have to strive for perfection or aim to tie up all the loose ends today. One day, one piece at a time. Allow space for some things to be messy, cluttered, and piled up. You were never designed to take care of everything all at once. Find your joy again in sitting with Me next to your piles. It’s okay. We will make our way through.
I see how fatigued you get. That busy head of yours is almost always in over-drive. Park the car for a second and check in with Me. Is everything you are trying to do really a priority when you pass it by My scrutiny? What can you let go of, delegate, or set-aside for another day? Find better balance today by coming to Me to sort things out. I can give you clarity and focus. Remember that I continually offer peace to you. Stop and receive My Grace-filled gift.
There is much to be said for slowing down. In a fast-paced world there is little room for awareness of My Presence and My reign over you and all of life. Don’t let the task-master ways in you rule. Step back, often, and pause to listen – acknowledging My ways and recognizing My deep love for you. Be especially mindful of that today. Let Me bring peace back to your heart and mind.
I wish you could grasp My ways. I call you to a life of peace beyond reasoning. Try it: in this moment, consider that ALL IS WELL. Rest in the fact that as you lay your life before Me, allowing Me to have full control so that My kingdom can be built upon earth as it is in heaven, – you can become overjoyed with your part in this Divine Purpose. Lay your worries at My feet. Push them aside and concentrate on being with Me. Reign in your tendency to try and forecast or fix the future. Concentrate on the simplicity of this moment where you and I are ONE.
Be okay with yourself for a day. Stop the relentless teeth grinding and self-imposed pressure to perform, handle, initiate, follow through on, and take care of things. Listen to yourself setting that expectation bar so high. Just “be” for a change. Work on mindfulness, – a step by step awareness and contentment without excessive planning or self-criticism for what isn’t getting done. My ways of Peace may not seem aligned with your work ethic and drive. Listen to Me and let Me teach you. You don’t always have to show accomplishment to be a successful, devoted follower of Mine. Practice being calm and peaceful, even around others. Less is more today.
Take notice of the breeze. Sometimes it picks up, moving fast and rustling things around you. Other times it pauses with complete stillness. I move that way in your life. You won’t necessarily be able to know how I am moving, but I have a plan. If life feels flustered it might be My Spirit bringing winds of change. Other times I may be calling you to stay put. You can be calm either way, knowing I love you. Rely on Me to be in control. You don’t have to see, know, or understand everything in order to be at peace. Work on trusting Me in whatever way the wind blows.
See the calm; picture it in your mind. Feel the calm knocking ever so gently. Open the door and greet it, allowing calmness to come in and fill every space in your heart and home. Be the calm; breathe it in and choose to live with it ruling your pace, your mind, and your actions. It’s not ridiculous to try this and believe in My capacity to bring you My Peace. I make all things possible. With the help of My Grace, you can be peace-filled. I love you and I want this for you.
I see you working so hard to keep it all together. So many pressures and demands on your time. Sneak in a few moments with Me throughout the day. These mini get-aways and breaks can replenish you, helping you find calm even amidst your busiest day. I am calling you home to a place of R & R that welcomes you with constant love and support. Your true home beckons you: dwell with Me daily inside your head and heart. Come home as often as you can.
Old presumptions and misguided worries do not have to drive you anymore. Don’t give in to those anxious habits, imagining things going wrong or assuming you are being judged critically. Everything is not going to fall apart. Instead, try cutting back on all the texting and social media that bombard you with messages. Live in a quieter space where you can regain awareness of Me again. You will find contentment and inner peace this way, derived from My guidance and Light within.
