Go easy on yourself. Bit by bit, things will get done. You don’t have to give in to being frantic. I make things manageable when you realize it is My agenda you serve today. Give yourself some of My Grace, and offer it to others. Even if it looks on the outside like things aren’t coming together, you can rest assured that My design is Good and well-thought-out. I need you right where you are today and I’m working to bring Good out of suffering. I never expect perfection, – only a willing Spirit.
Picture Me at work on your day, laying out the plans and strengthening you for each task as needed. See Me placing people to interact with along the way: some that you are meant to reach out to and others that you yourself are meant to be touched by. I weave a particular design, and when you open yourself to allowing Me to be in charge, the abundant life it produces will amaze you. Let Me astonish you as you practice heightening your awareness of My Presence in every single aspect of your day. Allow Me in.
I desire to comfort you. Instead of wallowing in the worries and sadness that risk overwhelming you, look to Me. See My loving face aimed straight at you, pouring out compassion and understanding. Rest here within My gaze and realize things will work out. Let gentleness toward yourself and others rule in your heart and your outlook today. I am with you and for you, and I bring Good out of every hard or sad thing you go through.
Let’s start fresh today. You’ve been feeling stagnant, listless, and distant, – I know. Not everything has to feel so mundane. Ask Me to enliven your spirit, but don’t forget to invest a little of your own skin in the game. Take charge and make a decision to get up and get going. This can be made easier once you see it is Me who calls you to “Come. Pick up your mat and walk.” I want and need you here; choose to live more fully with My help today.
Your ability to connect to others comes from within, so use genuine conversation and reflect My Light of Love and Hope through your eyes and warm words. This comes naturally to you when you allow yourself to invest faith in My design. Believe in your inherent Goodness and trust your capacity to influence the world in positive ways today. No vision of that is too big or too small. Take full advantage of the opportunities I place before you to lovingly and brightly impact the world around you.
Try being gentle on yourself. See how this influences your ability to give others Grace, too. There is wiggle room for more kindness to be shared when you relax your judgmental standards and let down your guard. Whenever you hold tight to offenses, I don’t have much space to work in you. The same is true for when you hang on to self-criticism. As you recognize these as barriers to love, bring them before Me as your ultimate Judge. See how I pardon offenses and erase criticism. Watch Me soften your heart and bring you Peace.
Stay true to Me and to what you are passionate about. After all, I instill inspiring thoughts, and I open doors. As long as it is Me you are ultimately serving, your efforts will be fruitful. Be of good cheer even in the mundane tasks of today, for the reward later will show you efforts were worthy of time, devotion, and attention.
Don’t get too far ahead of the game. Stay in the moment, otherwise you run the risk of tripping up the plays. I know exactly what I’m aiming at, – who is supposed to block, who will receive the catch, who should run, and who needs to stay back. Keep your eye on Me, your quarterback, and go where My eyes point you to go. I might need you to stay put for now, too. You can trust how I orchestrate; I know what will work best.
I call you to the quiet. Sit still; hear and absorb tiny sounds all around you. Empty your head of its constant throng of thoughts. Take in the quiet, intended for you. Rest like this allows you to hear Me. I am yours. Hand over all your stress to Me. Pay attention to your body with all its fatigue, pain, and tension. I want to mend the broken parts of your Spirit. The parts that are distrusting, cynical, anxious, sad. In the quiet I wash My Grace all over you, finding its way into each crevice or dark surface. Be filled and covered in Light. Know that I have not abandoned you, – ever! I am aware of your suffering. While your painful experiences may not always disappear, know that I am with you and I am at work to make Good arise out of difficulty.
Whether you are in a time of sickness calling you to slow down or a time of wellness asking you to carry on, I am quietly attending to you. Notice how things appear lighter in the distance. I work that way, with Light on the horizon no matter what kind of day you have ahead. As you spend this time with Me, I will gently turn your chin in the direction of that horizon. Keep your eyes fixed on Me out there today. I will lead you home.
