To Handle Tough Situations

I’ll give you all that you need to handle tough situations. While it may take extreme courage to walk through the door, remember that I’m the One opening it and accompanying you in, every step of the way. Look to Me for your confidence. If you need a protective stance, I’ll be the barrier to help deflect things that aim to hurt you. You can be peacefully present even among others who are engulfed in their own hostility. Hold My Hand tightly under the table. I’ll get you through.

All That Matters

You have strength and courage beyond that of many. It is your leadership I desire, and you are doing that. There is no need to doubt yourself. Lay your burdens and anxiety on Me. I will not break what I have begun, and I have already started a good work in you. You are pleasing in My sight! That is all that matters: not people’s judgement, criticism, or praise. My song in your heart is all you need. Take heart, for I am always with you.

Instilled Ability

I have big things in store for you – bigger than you can even imagine. Let My plan unfold with an open mind to all that I call you to do. You are already Mine, – instilled with ability to bring about my purposes of healing, connection, and kingdom-building. Trust Me with this every day work, uttering a willingness to accept whatever is laid before you. Nothing will be too hard with Me there to guide and accompany you. You can even be peaceful in the process. There’s no need to waste energy on anxiety. Put aside those old ways, ready for all that’s coming.

God’s Protective Arm

On the inside you might feel scared or insecure, but I have insulated you with My protective arm. This same arm not only shields, it also lifts you up and moves your forward. Upheld by My strength, you will have what it takes to face uncomfortable situations competently. With Me on your side you can speak and act with confidence. I designed you to be capable, so go forth boldly today. Insecurity and fear will wash away with each step you take.

Don’t Let Anxiety Win Out

You and I can handle the day ahead. I know you feel fearful and want to reclude. Don’t let the anxiety win out. With My help you can face all things. My plans hold Light and Goodness in store that may surprise you. Pause, breathe, and regroup in My calming and strengthening Presence. Shake off the gloom and doom, reminded that I have better things in store for you.

Be the Personable You I Created

Yield to My beautiful design for you, full of love and tremendous purpose. You are a good person, so stop questioning that. Smart, thoughtful, capable, loving, – and oh-so-sensitive. I see you trying very hard to make life special and supportive to others. You care, deeply. You, My dear, make a positive difference in the world. Get back on track believing this. Don’t let self-doubt shake this foundational truth about you. Go, – be with others and picture yourself comfortable in these shoes of sociability. Be the personable you I created. Remember who formed you!

Be Encouraged

I have words of inspiration and encouragement for you today. Words of reassurance that I make all things new! Whatever is troubling you or weighing you down, let Me have a go at it. I tear down walls and rebuild bridges. You know Me. Our history shows that I am a God who parts waters, washing the hostility away behind you as I bring you to new ground. Be encouraged, and allow Me to give you vision with a new perspective. I am the God who renews and regenerates. Take it in.

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.

Don’t Numb Out

You don’t have to numb out with things that aren’t good for you today. Come to Me with your pain or sorrow. Run into My arms of safety and comfort, seeking solace instead of just a diversion from the things that hurt or overwhelm you. Choose food, drinks, and activities that are healthy for you, and pat yourself on the back for electing good self-care. I can help you be in control of those choices. Numbing out makes you stay stuck, and I want to free you. Ask Me to help and I’ll be there instantaneously, giving Grace and strength to recover from old habits.

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.
