Do you love Me enough to go where I ask today? I know you are tired. I see your fatigue. Nothing goes unregistered by Me. Take some of that pressure off your shoulders simply by acknowledging My supply. I give ever-enough to get you through the day, every day. You don’t have to feel responsible for everything all the time. (I know how you think). Let Me be in charge, and you just follow along. Before you know it, things will get done. All will be well.

I lay things on your heart when I think you are ready for them. Grow in your trust for Me, because you are being prepared to take on new ventures. Today I want you to remember what it’s like to be inspired. Recall how I whispered My thoughts to you and ignited excitement and energy, lighting a fire in your heart. Remember how My ideas easily poured out and the pieces came together simply when you said, “Yes”. Greet Me at the door, knocking and calling enthusiastically to you saying, “C’mon! Let’s GO.” Invite others in for our inspirational ride. I will lead the way.

I know you are tired, groggy, and unmotivated at times like this. I’m still here, though, – hanging out and waiting for you to look My way for support and strength. I can comfort you and give you drive. Rest in Me, finding your energy supply filling from My reservoir. Then, just show up. Things will unfold accordingly and you will both have and be enough to take on whatever comes your way.
I see your weariness, recognizing that you are bone-tired and lacking motivation. What if I approached you and said, “Get up! Pick up your mat, and let’s go!” Wouldn’t you do it readily for Me, with a renewed spring in your step? What I call you to today may not be as dramatic as that story, but how I call you is the same for you as it was for that person. Your work today, – the job you are “hired” for, – is to follow Me. I call you to the labor at hand, which is work we’ll do together. I’ll energize you, feed you, and assign the tasks to be done. I’ll even equip you with the skills needed for each assignment. Rise up joyfully, My beloved child; it’s time to get to work. Join Me in the day’s adventures ahead.
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.
You will have the strength for what you need to do, but don’t neglect your need for rest, also. Down time is just as important as accomplishing tasks. Don’t overwork yourself. So many times I watch you striving so hard for goals which I have not set for you. I design your days with bits and pieces of a much bigger picture. Although you cannot envision that as fully as I do, I simply ask you to listen to My call and trust My guidance along the way. I will not push more upon you than you can reasonably carry. Examine your plans to see what is designed by Me vs. what is designed by the world. Reduce or eliminate tasks that bury you with needless stress, worry, or anxiety. I don’t want to exhaust your reserves. Trust that I will help you carry that which is truly important, then rest accordingly when the day is done.
You can avoid preoccupation with future things. Don’t let yourself get tripped up with obsessive thoughts about situations and results that may never actually occur. Stay close to Me, your Shepherd. I know what is over the horizon. Let Me lead you on steady paths. Please, don’t try to race ahead in your thoughts or actions. You’ll only waste precious energy and create needless worry for yourself. Enjoy resting at My feet for a while. Allow Me to take over the planning for tomorrow, and the day after that. Enjoy the scenery of where I have brought you to today.
You may not be as tired as you think. Stress and anxiety can make you over-think plans for your life instead of trusting in My shepherding. Feel the gentle nudge of My staff reminding you that I am leading the way. Your only job is to follow. When you busy your mind with planning and worries you can easily become frazzled and feel fatigued by it all. Wash yourself free of needless worry. Refresh yourself in My basin of Grace where streams of abundance flow. Allow Me to lead you into this day, entrusting all encounters and tasks on the journey to Me. See how your energy rebounds, supplying you with the bounce in your step needed to traverse the hills ahead.
I need all of you. Not just a little bit like leftovers after a full meal has been dished out. I want your whole self committed to Me: your work time and your leisure. Part of giving Me your whole self means paying attention to how you find balance. I call you to intentionally set aside time for rest and for “play” because your busy head needs time off. Fill your cup with My reservoir of love by spending time with others you enjoy and who love you back. See what this can do to renew your heart.
Look for My hand in the unexpected today. In silent observation, take note of how I call you to act, respond, interact, or receive, – learning to recognize that it may be precisely the unexpected change in plan where My greatest works are being accomplished. Take note of how I supply all you need: patience, endurance, compassion, persistence, energy, then rest. I will equip you fully in this day. Practice trusting Me in these experiences and you will find My peace that goes beyond understanding.
