You Can Do Hard Things

I know you are hurting. I see you sending up signals and flares, feeling stranded and a little abandoned. You are not lost, though, My child. I know exactly where you are, and I am working behind the scenes toward the recovery that is ahead for you. It may mean enduring pain for a while longer, but you can handle some discomfort. I will give you the strength to manage each day, one day at a time. Asking “why” and feeling discouraged won’t help, even though this is a normal reaction. Come to Me and let Me help you bear with this until it passes. You can do hard things with Me at your side and within your spirit.

I’m Working Things Out

Today has Light in store for you, even if you are hurting, tired, worried, or discouraged. On those days when you doubt Good things are on their way, look up anyway. Recognize that I am with you in the sources of Light. Let this impact your perspective. Instead of being dragged down your suffering and anxiety, seek Me and find reassurance that I’m working things out. Let Me help brighten your mood and your outlook as you invest trust in Me. 

Lift Your Spirit

I love you even when you’re crabby or discouraged. That being said, let’s shake the dust off those tired feet and get moving. I’ll lift your spirit. I have a way of brightening your outlook when you start to recognize the anxiety-ridden or self-pitying pitfall you’re in. Decide to at least try trusting Me to help shift your focus. Telling yourself phrases like “this, too, shall pass”, “maybe it’s not that bad”, or “things are looking up” helps. Choose a new mantra and work on a positive pep-talk to yourself knowing I’m at work in your life and I can be trusted to make change happen.

Dealing With Pain

You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.
