The Parts You Contribute

You don’t have to get so worked up over things today. Ask Me to help you settle down inside. When you start to rev up with anxiety or kick into control mode out of fear, push the pause button and turn to Me for perspective. Take a deep breath. Remember that I can and do turn all situations into good results over time. It’s not all up to you to lead, fix, or control. Once you see the outcomes are not all up to you to create, you can get back to concentrating on the parts you contribute. Remember how capable you are, and trust that I equip you for all that is needed. You can count on Me to be there with and for you, always.

Untie the Knots

Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to quiet that busy, fretful head of yours. Try this tactic: tell yourself repeatedly “Nothing matters as much as I think it does.” The only thing that truly matters is using critical thinking to determine “What is the best way to be loving in this scenario?” If you see another person tangled in distress and can recognize the ropes that threaten to trip them up, help untie those knots by encouraging them to trust in Me.  If you find yourself wrapped in a tangled rope of worry over something I didn’t place in your path for you to address, step aside and let Me handle it instead. I will give you strength and insight to know how to handle each situation you encounter.

Worries That Trip You Up

Your feet are catching on senseless worries that trip you up. Stop stumbling by recognizing that pride and ego are difficult forces to be reckoned with. I can help you with that. It may require you choosing to allow Me to be in charge. When you take a haphazard path full of insecurities and questions about your value, worth, and capabilities, the risks of tripping, falling, and injury are greater. Worrying about one thing after another, or trying to control outcomes over which you are powerless, will only cause additional hurt and frustration. Step back, allowing Me to help you face the unknown and unfamiliar. You can proceed with trust in My plan and My purpose for your life, helping you get around or move those obstacles. I can help stabilize you, – just turn to Me and ask.

When It Feels Like Too Much

There are so many pressures in this world vying for your attention. Phone calls, texts, emails to answer; invitations to respond to; plans to be made. When it all feels like too much, I know. Turn to Me for help making space in your head, and to find true quieting. Hear Me saying “What is necessary will be accomplished. What is not can wait. I will help. Hand your list over to Me”. Stay close behind Me, following in My footsteps as I help you focus. Cling to Me, and trust how I am rolling things out. By the end of the day, all will be well.

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.
