Facing Challenges

Hear Me clearly: I do not “reprimand” you. I am not that kind of God! If you are facing challenges that seem to attack or deplete your spirit, know that I may be forming or shaping you more into My likeness, – and so, choose to say thank you. Choose to trust Me even more, knowing that I will reveal Myself to you more fully with each step of your life. My ways are not meant to be hard. Sometimes they call upon you to shed unimportant details, enlightening simpler priorities and gleaning peace from it all as you learn to live a life of simplicity. I am with you, and so, you are up for the challenge! 

When Others Fall Short

Do as I ask of you – LOVE. Love fully and completely, without judgement and with compassion and forgiveness even when others fall short of your expectations. This is no small task for your human heart, but I will equip you. I know it sounds hard, but I will help. Turn to Me with petty annoyances. Release them into My care and respond to others with love regardless of whether or not it is “earned”. Find Grace in this action today: love as you are loved. 

I Hold It All

I read your thoughts and already know your needs. I will touch others through you, satisfying your desire for attention in meaningful ways. You are an important presence to others around you, but I desire your full attention. Seek Me first and My kingdom of peace will be yours. I don’t call you to sacrifice all day to a point of resentment. I do, however, ask you to lay your life down when your desires are not in line with My purpose for you. I will help you discern that. Ask Me for help when you are confused on which way to go. Pray for others. I hear it all; I hold it all. Relax as you allow Me to take the lead from you. Enjoy life with Me at the helm instead. 

Banquet of Choices

I am in this day and ever present at your side.  Hear My call to you in a whisper of love. Be comforted by My Presence, knowing I am not asking you to do more than you can handle. I have placed a beautiful table before you with a banquet of choices and blessings to do with as you will. You have the freedom to choose. Seek My guidance and I will be happy to point you in the right direction, with paths of righteousness, pure thoughts, and blessings abundantly available. Choose wisely. 

Looking Out for You

You are beginning to hear My voice and trust My truth in your life. You can recognize that no matter what, you are loved and I am looking out for you. Even if it feels like you are going unnoticed or being left alone to deal with a mountain of worries, this simply isn’t true. I am here. I can carry the weight on your shoulders today: entrust Me with both the plans and the outcomes. Watch as I work things out and your fears trickle away downstream. My mighty river of strength surges all around and through you, equipping you to handle all that you encounter. Know and trust my love for you with attention to every detail of your life. 

No Need for Self-Consciousness

There are so many things I want you to check out with Me today. Picture me excitedly saying, “C’mon over here!”, waving you in to each place you enter. I’m so happy when you follow Me in. Enjoy when I introduce you to new people or things, showing you off and letting you get to know other great people to interact with. Go in with confidence, enthusiasm, and joyful wonder. Life with Me does not have to be a drudgery, or something to be afraid of all the time. You are welcome here; We both are. There is no longer a need for self-consciousness when you realize I led you here for My reasons and My purposes. Be glad and rejoice in it! 

Calming Images

My burden is intended to be light, – easy. Live in love. Stop all the planning and listen. My will for you is to be in the moment. You are My artist, fully capable of calming yourself by capturing images to paint in your mind. See the early morning blue light and notice the interplay of light and dark. Soothe yourself with music, sights, and sounds – all provided by Me to delight your day today. It is good to carry these calming images with you. My Will is done in simple moments such as these.  

I Hear Your Struggle

I hear your struggle. Whisper My name and breathe in My calming Presence. Squeeze My hand tightly  and be assured that I hear you; I wish to bring you comfort. Stand firm upon My rock. As you face that blustering wind, know that you don’t have to fear or doubt your strength because I am IMMEDIATELY with you. Keep your eyes on Me and don’t let go of My hand. Confidence is yours to hold. 

Run to Me for Reassurance

Come to Me. Whether My love rains down in a heavy watershed or gently washes over you like calm waves upon the shore, I am there for you. I adore you. Too often you forget about how available My immense love is. Don’t let that happen today! I know how you get weighted down thinking everything is all up to you. I never ask you to do things all by yourself. Notice, recognize, and trust in My love…available all day, in each moment when you need to lean against Me or run to Me for reassurance. Remain in Me and I will gently guide you through the day. Bring your worries to me, set them down, and then remember that I have plans already designed for your Good. Let’s head into this day together. 

Caring Without Codependency

Breathe My name. You know Me! I am already with you, – loving you ever so tenderly. I place people in your life to know and care about you, as well as people for you to return love to in exchange. Caring is Good. Don’t ever feel bad about caring for someone. You can draw healthy boundaries without codependency, right? It’s tricky, but I can help. Keep drawing your attention back to Me. Ask for My help and guidance, and find Joy with Me in this day. Radiate outward, because I have called you by name and you are Mine.
