Diligent Trust

Giving your life over to Me, – handing over all your goals, decisions, and dreams, – takes diligent trust. Choosing to allow My good intentions for you rule your steps requires frequent evaluation of whose will you are trying to follow. Know that at every moment I’ll provide you with enough stamina and drive. I also offer opportunities for rest and peace. The bottom line is this: I love you and want what is best for you and My world. You are an essential part of that! I am your Creator, calling you to live life with and for Me every day with diligent trust that this is the right thing to do.

Face Any Problems Triumphantly

Just show up today. You can do it! I know what you are capable of. Don’t under-estimate the power and importance of your presence and Mine. Remember you are valued and needed wherever you go. I’ll walk with you through any doors. Picture them as holy gates, triumphantly entering them as you face any problems. I work that way, you know. There is nothing you and I can’t handle together.

Change Habits of Over-Commitment

You don’t have to be “on” all the time. Stepping back and taking time to unplug is equally as important as constantly striving to do and be your best self. You have become a harsh taskmaster over the years. I want you to examine and change habits of over-commitment or feelings of hyper-responsibility. Remember, I’m the One in charge. I call you to add rest breaks into your schedule. Find balance by committing quiet time with Me daily. Release your need to control everything, trusting Me with the outcomes instead. I don’t want you weighed down by over-responsibility. Come to Me, all you who labor and are weary; find rest in Me.

You Have What it Takes

You may ask, “Why me, Lord?” Wondering why I chose you or why you are in a particular circumstance; wondering if you are enough, or do you have what it takes. My answer may surprise you. I say you are a perfect fit. I say you are more than enough, – equipped for whatever it takes. I deem you ready and capable. Others will look to you for leadership. Say yes to Me. Offer to be utterly resounded to My will and My plan, and all will unfold as it should.

Challenges Handled With Care

Let Me soothe your soul. Take in deep breaths, choosing to mentally inhale trust and exhale needless worry. No matter what happens, I’ll help see you through. Picture your current challenges as if they are packaged in a brown box, attended to by you for a little while. Deliver each one on to Me so I can ship them off labelled “handled with care”. I do care about you and your every concern. I’ll get you through safely and securely.

Relaxed and Focused

I can tell when you are wrestling with thoughts and emotions that consume more energy and attention than they deserve. Shrug those worries off as much as you can by focusing on My way of loving. Learn to leave the past in the past; don’t keep mulling it over. The more you can live conscious of My Presence in the present and My plan to work all things together for Good, the more relaxed and focused you will become. Ask Me what needs to happen today and trust Me to show you, minute by minute. Come to Me all you who are weary and find life full of burdens; I will give you rest from your worries.

Be Open to My Call

Hear Me: I need you. You are Mine. These things go hand-in-hand. Spend time together with Me first every day so you can settle your thoughts and be in tune with My unconditional Love for you. With this as your starting place, you’ll become aware of what I ask of you today, knowing full well that I’m your backbone, protector, and guide. I won’t push you beyond what you are ready for. Be open to My call, which ALWAYS starts from a place of Love. If fear tries to come into play, breathe deeply of My reassurance and tell it you can’t be tricked into not believing all you are capable of today.

Time to Get Going

Sometimes I call you to sit and be still, but right now it’s time to get going. I’m nudging you, – urging you to use the drive I’ve instilled in you to get things done as part of My will. Be encouraged; this is according to My plans for you and for the world. Everyone has a part in My design. Your work is important and meant to be shared with others. Take the risks needed and find My Glory unfolding brightly as you go along. I’m ALL IN and in it all with you.

Meanwhile, Hang In There

Hang in there, – we’re not through yet. There is more introspection to be had. You are getting closer to seeing with My eyes. I want your whole, tender heart to be ALL MINE. Look to Me with love today. Love Me, love My world. Stay close to Me when you are facing new things. I am familiar to you and can help settle you down. Eventually, I take you through all sorts of newness and change. You don’t have to view it as too hard or grumble about it, because it’s all going to lead to something majestic one day. Meanwhile, hang in there with Me.

Carving a Way Through

Gradually you are coming into awareness of the life I have planned for you. Even with life’s setbacks, – which sometimes seem like an unending onslaught of problems, – I am with you, carving a way through. There is a bend in the road up ahead. Together, let’s walk on it. Let Me sling My arm over your shoulder as we approach it cheerfully. With Me, all things are possible…even living joyfully.
