You have what it takes. Speak boldly, as I have prepared you to do. Also speak kindly, with nurturing words toward yourself and others. Nothing needs to rile you. You can easily choose to roll with the circumstances that come upon you today, knowing I am with you no matter what happens next. I am present even in the unexpected, so don’t allow anxiety to cast a shadow over the bright things about to happen. You can handle everything when opting to do it in partnership with Me and under My Good plans for you.

Do you trust Me to be caring for you? Because I AM, quietly and gently – sometimes imperceptibly by you, but ever-so-present, always. Close your eyes for a moment and let Me remind you of My great Love for you. I send forgiveness, strength, courage, love, and ways for you to find peace. Go gently into this day with less anxiety as you heighten awareness of My support to you. Pay attention to My call asking you to be My Presence in the world. You are capable of this; I will equip you with whatever you need. Above, underneath, and through it all is My love and caring for you. You will see and sense that today. Look for it.
Trust is a big word. It can feel like a lofty, unattainable goal. Try taking it in smaller increments. Tentative steps with a brave “I’ll try it for a minute” is all you need to get started. I want to lead you forward to better spaces of peace and hope. My desire for you to trust Me is a big ask, I know. The beauty of trusting Me is that I am reliable. I’ll ALWAYS be there for you, no matter what choices you make or what consequences you are experiencing. I encourage you to take that step forward with less anxiety. You can trust Me to be loving you unconditionally already.
I know you. I see you questioning your credibility and your ability to carry out My plan for you. I am your Creator, – the One who designed you to bring about good things in the world by My Grace. You don’t have to underestimate what you are capable of when you pair your willingness with My will. You can even face criticism without letting it slay you. I will strengthen you so that other’s negative comments don’t wear you down. Wish love upon the haters, and remember that love and Light dominate darkness, always. Don’t let others or self-doubt get you down. If God is for you, who can be against?
Sometimes being “lighthearted” takes a conscious effort. When life is discouraging, choosing to believe in My ability to help you overcome can be hard. Choose belief today anyway. Defiantly stand in the face of all that seeks to overwhelm you and say, “My God is bigger than this!” I am a trustworthy and loving God who notices and attends to every detail of your life. You can aim your face to My Light of hope and let it fill your heart with courage to get through the day. There is joy up ahead, and reason to be Light-hearted yet today.
You are My rock…at least, you can be when you decide to trust that this is how I made you to be. I can empower you to do so much more than you limit yourself in imagining. I gave you My Paraclete, who is in you and with you and ready to accomplish giant things in My name. Are you ready? Are you willing to open yourself to the possibilities of all I have in store for your life? Remember, you do not do any of this alone or on your own might. I equip you, daily, for mighty and for small things. All you need to do is say, “Yes, Lord”, and My kingdom can be built upon your rock of faith.
Are you fighting against the tide? Go willingly where I am taking you and the way will be easier. If you are in high water, I will help you stay afloat. I will also deposit you back on shore for time to rest and recuperate. Entrust Me with the plan because I love you. I don’t want you to be so anxious all the time. Go with My flow, for My yoke is easy and My burden is light. There is a Divine direction in all of this.
I am preparing you for bigger things to come. Sit with that thought for a moment. It’s not you who must prepare for My plans; your job is simply to be ready to receive. Be open to learning, trying new things, and receiving My work within you. Anxiety will try to creep in and take over, but you can resist that old habit by recognizing this is not all up to you. I am a trustworthy God. Be child-like with curiosity and enthusiasm for the new things I want you to experience. You will be equipped to step boldly onto the path I draw you to, – confident and assured that My will is doable and sure.
