So You Can Breathe Easier

I am your God, and able to be sovereign over your life in Good ways if you let Me. Allow Me the authority to help shape your thoughts and guide your actions today. Find how freeing it is to let go of all the things you think you can or should try to control, and instead watch with curiosity to see how I make things turn out when you give me free reign. You have the power to do that in your own mind and heart. Let Me in and allow Me to take over for a change so you can breathe easier. I love you and I desire to give you peace.

Letting Go of Your Grip

I see all things and know all things. Your pain, sorrow, worries – nothing goes unnoticed by Me. I never dismiss your experiences as trivial or undeserving of My full attention. My great affection for you results in My mighty hand  at work orchestrating people and plans to assist you with next steps. Turn your cares and concerns for yourself and others over to Me, then work on letting go of your grip and trying to control the outcomes. Trust that all will result in good things under My control. I bring comfort and energy to sustain you.

Leadership

Remember Who is in charge. You are so prone to taking on more responsibility than is really yours to carry. Try stepping back more today and allow others to lead in their own style. Consider that I may be the One behind their decisions, actions, and choices, – even if their leadership style is different than your expectations. Your presence is still needed, but try taking  a supportive role of others rather than stepping in to take charge all the time. Let the chips fall where they may as you find peace by trusting My true leadership in every situation you encounter.

Not Awfulizing Emotions

There are ebbs and tides of difficult emotions that naturally come and go in this life, You can endure them all reasonably well as you lean into My companionship. I face all of these with you, pointing out when you are overreacting or assuming too much responsibility. Instead of chastising yourself or trying desperately to control things that distress you, pick them up and hold them to My Light. Together, let’s observe what is going on and gently set it down, not succumbing to awfulizing emotions or letting fear of the unknown overwhelm you. I will always help you bear what is. Breathe in trust of My helping hand.

Give Others the Chance to Step Up

I have good plans in store. I am a trustworthy God with a greater design at work than what might be visible to your mind’s eye. I’ll help you step back when it’s time to listen and not respond. Watch as I orchestrate giving others the chance to step up to the plate. See how it’s not all up to you. I can take care of you in ways such as this when you relinquish your frantic attempts to be in control. Things don’t always have to go your way to be good. Sometimes a change in plans works out better. You are safe in My arms; trust Me to be there at all times.

It’s Not All Up to You to Resolve

Why do you have such a heavy heart? I see you carrying the weight of the world around sometimes, but it’s not yours to have to worry about. I will put you in places where your presence and attention to others is most needed, but it’s not all up to you to resolve everything. Leave their concerns, illnesses, situations, choices, and consequences for Me to attend to. I’m fully capable of handling it all. Be gentle with yourself today, giving permission to not be perfect or “on top of everything”. Some things will ultimately be out of your control, but you can trust Me endlessly.

Share the Load

I am trying to perk up your spirit. I don’t want you walking around all stooped over by the weight of the world. Choose intentionally to share that load with Me so that you can walk with ease more. That sounds simple, but may take extra effort on your part to change old habits of hyper-responsibility. Ask for My help to recognize when you are assuming more oversight and control than is needed or required of you. Learning to share the load will do you good.

Remove Your Hyper-Responsibility

I want you to work on removing yourself from hyper-responsibility. The world and all of its happenings are not yours to take care of; they belong to Me. Even though I appreciate your good intentions, I want to help you step down from feeling overly responsible for planning, preparing, and outcomes beyond your control. The healthier way to live is to acknowledge My Sovereignty while doing your part to contribute under My direction. Let Me help take the weight off your shoulders. Relax a little more; you don’t have to lead all of the time.

Picture Me Making Things Better

Don’t underestimate My ability or power to heal. I change circumstances and move mountains of pride and hurt. Give Me the power to change your heart and mind. Relinquish your attempts to control situations or people, submitting to My will and My ways for you. Picture Me making things better when you hand your worries and frustrations over to Me. I am in your corner, and I want Good things in your life. You can trust Me.

On Managing Thoughts

You are so critical of your every thought. Sometimes thoughts enter our head that are completely fleeting and irrelevant or inaccurate. Just because a thought enters your mind doesn’t mean you are responsible for placing it there. Consider each thought and release it if it doesn’t align with who you are called to be or how you like to approach life. I’ll help you sort that out. In the meantime, work on recognizing that thought entries are beyond your control and not a sign of inherent goodness or badness. What you DO with them is what matters. Seek the heart of God in what you choose to keep your mindset on, and you can’t be steered wrong.
