No Darkness That I Cannot Overcome

Remember that you are Mine, and I am the Light of the world. My Presence is all-pervasive. There is no area of darkness that I cannot overcome. I am a protective God, too. My Grace overflows to help with the things that matter most. Wash yourself in this Grace and see if that doesn’t help clear your mind. I will help you focus and show you the way you should go, all in due time. 

Don’t Cling to the Stress

Do not cling to the things that stress you out. When you mull them over and over, thinking you must solve everything all at once, you become tangled up. I don’t want you to start your day with bundles of worry. Let Me help unravel you, one thing at a time. You will see how insignificant these stressors can be once My Light shines on them and things start to fall into place – either resolved or released into My care. I call you to peace, but you must lean upon Me! Trust My almighty hand at work in your life. This does not mean I will make all things easy, – but I do make all things manageable and help them work together for Good. Look for the Good in this day with small reassurances that I am present. My hand is indeed at work! 

Go at My Pace

My precious, precious child – why do you get so anxious? I will not leave or abandon you – EVER. If you feel fearful, lost, or alone, – wondering “which way to go”, – turn to look up at Me as I take your hand reassuringly and confidently. Think of Me as your guardian and trust Me fully, – that I will lead you on exactly where you need to go. Keep your gaze upon Me whenever your steps feel unsteady or unsafe. My hand will pull you up upon the rocks of higher ground. Enjoy the walk; don’t try to run ahead of Me without My guidance. Slow down, and go at My pace, – one day at a time. You will find great peace in doing so. 

What You Are Wrestling With

I know what you are wrestling with. You don’t have to try and hide these things from Me. (That only serves to separate you from Me). You need Me in the midst of these thoughts, shedding Light on darkened areas. Set it fully upon My table, offering it up to Me to handle instead of continuing your wrestling match on your on. I know your desire for love, attention, and passion. These are important to Me, too. Trust Me with this: all things in their own time. I cherish you beyond belief, and long for you to feel My love and experience My kind of success in your days. 

Flourish

How can you question the GOOD in yourself so much? If only you could see as I see – what a marvelous sight to behold. Yes, I am talking to YOU. Take stock of the goodness and strength I have created in you. Trust me to water your garden and feed you the nutrients you need to FLOURISH. But you must take good care of yourself, as well. Be mindful of how you act, speak, and think – the choices you make to build up rather than criticize and to be healthy instead of indulging in harmful pleasures. I need you to be strong and healthy to fulfill My purpose I designed in you for this day. Take it one day at a time. 

Vying for Time in Your Head

Today, try to remove the concerns, worries, comments, and decisions all vying for time in your head. Don’t worry about finding answers and solutions. Come to Me in silence. Rest your weary head. Enjoy My Presence. Let the Light surrounding you FILL you. Picture Me sitting next to you. As you become aware of My Presence, it comforts you. Restoration will result from this exercise. You can be restored to right thinking; – restored of energy and replenished with peace in your Spirit. My Presence is enough to heal you. Choose to believe that all of your needs are being met, and trust will follow. 

Bracing for Difficult Encounters

I see you, and I know your heart. You are weary from the frenzied thoughts always trying to plan for the unexpected, control the unknown, and fix things beyond your control. You are tired of bracing yourself for difficult encounters so often. You desire peace and reconciliation, but both feel beyond your grasp. Hear Me reminding you that you simply do not have to bear or do all of this on your own. Rest your weary head on My all-capable, consoling shoulders. Lean in to Me with your wounded, anxious heart. I am the Giver of all Good, and I intend to mend the torn tapestry within your life. I want your beautiful, colorful, intricate fabric to be on full display, brightening the room. The few frayed edges merely speak of a life well-worn. There is nothing to hide, nothing you have to keep bracing for all alone. Use My grace to find strength and confidence within.  

Relieve You of Needless Anxiety

You are My wonder! I give you free will to choose how to live. It pleases Me when you demonstrate trust in Me with your choices, but no matter what, I love you.  My plan is meant to support you, not hinder. I love seeing you receptive to trying new things, and being willing to pursue and persist even when the going gets tough. Come to Me with your choices and listen for guidance in the way you may go if you want to be in line with what I had in mind for you. I want to relieve you of needless anxiety this way. 

A Glad Heart

This is the day the Lord has made. I ask you to be glad and rejoice in it. Don’t let simple worries or spinning imaginings of “what if’s” take away your capacity to be content in the moment. I am your God, and I desire to bring about good things including justice and kindness. Bring me an act of love or a glad heart as your worship offering today. 

The Aching of Your Heart

It is My will that you find the pathway I have laid out for you. I don’t try to make things difficult, but I do wait to make the way clear until you have eyes that are ready to see and ears that are ready to hear. Listen to the aching of your heart, revealing its greatest need. I am guiding you as you learn to pay attention to what I am saying. My voice is powerful, and it will speak to you in due time. Bring your needs to Me in fervent prayer. I honor those who worship Me and long to trust in My desires for them.
