Do One Thing

As you get better at slowing down, you will also get better at finding calmness. When pressure and anxiety start to build in your head, take down one piece at a time from the mound of to-dos. Set all else aside, trusting Me to help you find the time to address each thing. I want you to see how effective reliance upon Me can be. Practice this “do one thing” method for an hour and see what we can get done together as you invest your trust in My provision. It doesn’t all have to be done in a day. I’ll supply what you need as you leave the rest to Me.

Acknowledge Your Anger

It’s alright to acknowledge your anger when it arises. In fact, it’s important to pick it up, examine it without judging it as “good” or “bad”, and then set it down at My feet. Let your anger rest there, entrusted to Me so that you can move on. If you keep grabbing it back, I cannot help as much as I’d like. You don’t have to spend so much energy wallowing in fury or petty annoyances. I attend to you and all of your emotions with Grace and healing, calling you to peaceful living.

Take Off the Pressure to Perform

I know how you struggle with finding or maintaining a peaceful state of mind. It feels like there is so much to do and so little time some days. I want you to take off the pressure to perform. The best way to manage that is to intentionally pause and linger in moments. Stop long enough to whisper My name and recognize My calming Presence. Listen for small sounds and focus on the gentle Light I place around you. In this quiet, hushed place you can be refreshed- reminded that you never go it alone. I am with you, equipping you and taking care of the outcomes. You will have all you need.
