I have things for you to do today. Let’s get started with a clean slate. Allow yourself to wash off the remains of yesterday so you can start fresh with Me. I will restore your energy and give your motivation an overhaul if you let Me in. Allow Me to be the planner and the provider.
My hand is at work in your life in mostly imperceptible ways. This does not mean I’m orchestrating only demands upon you, nor does it mean your life will be free of hardships. I ask you to be a companion to others along the way. I need your voice to help shepherd and guide My sheep on earth. Do so patiently today- and trust My involvement in your acts of outreach. I will give you the words to say and the steps to take in bringing My Good to all that you encounter today. In this, you will know joy.
At times it can feel like there are dark forces all around you. I equip you for battles when you must face or contend with them. Sometimes it requires words and actions. Other times the mere act of prayer, – inviting the Light in, – is enough to make darkness retreat. Love overpowers and peace rules when it is for My purposes and Good outcomes. Call upon My protective power and the army of saints will be available to assist you. My armament may require a humble stance at times, too. Let peace reign in your heart toward all. Be slow to judge and quick to forgive FIRST. If I call you to further action beyond that, you will know. Choose love as your sword and faith as your shield.
Stop putting so much pressure on yourself. Do you not remember that I am accompanying you every day, minute, and hour, – grasping your right hand every step of the way? Why do you loosen your grip? I will always let you choose to do things your way, but I still remain near and ever-present. Instead of feeling so stressed, pressured, and worried about the tasks and circumstances before you, try gripping My hand even tighter. Let Me lead you, one task at a time. Don’t cling to self-reliance. I can give you all the confidence needed to use your talents and energy for My divine purpose.
I call you to do great works. My definition of “great” is different than the world’s, – sometimes done with small deeds in quiet simplicity. Be yourself as I designed you, using your genuine compassion for the Good of others. There is no need to put on airs or present yourself in distorted efforts to achieve status. You are already prominent in My eyes, and only My judgement matters. I equip all My children differently, providing an exquisite balance of needs and talents perfectly matched when you listen to My call and guidance. You cannot measure or manage another person’s gifts, but you can be responsible for your own and lead by example. Let kindness rule with forgiveness and compassion today. Many blessings occur and unfold in abundance with this practice.
Hear Me tell you loud and clear that you are loved. Your life and purpose are of great value to Me. Assist Me in combating darkness with compassion and healing. Strive to listen to the pain of others and be My Presence in a hurting world. I will stock your reserves with enough supply of tenderness and boldness on the shelves to meet the demand, and I’ll dance joyfully with you when the day’s good labor is done.
Days like today are such a gift! I love it when you wake up with a grateful heart and notice how the break of dawn brings such mysteries of hope, Light, and color. Take in My dappled sunlight, ever on the move and calling you to hold onto a Spirit of Joy. Be willing to spread that joyfulness. Let Me use you to bring hope and goodness to others simply by keeping a twinkle in your eye and a grin on your face. You can lift the mood of a whole environment this way.
Giving your life over to Me, – handing over all your goals, decisions, and dreams, – takes diligent trust. Choosing to allow My good intentions for you rule your steps requires frequent evaluation of whose will you are trying to follow. Know that at every moment I’ll provide you with enough stamina and drive. I also offer opportunities for rest and peace. The bottom line is this: I love you and want what is best for you and My world. You are an essential part of that! I am your Creator, calling you to live life with and for Me every day with diligent trust that this is the right thing to do.
You needn’t feel doomed by the pressures surrounding you. I can and will help. Offer Me yet another ounce of trust. You have enough and you are enough by My design. You won’t need excess or have to take on extra responsibility. Trust Me to balance the supply and demand between your time and energy. I will provide.
Just show up today. You can do it! I know what you are capable of. Don’t under-estimate the power and importance of your presence and Mine. Remember you are valued and needed wherever you go. I’ll walk with you through any doors. Picture them as holy gates, triumphantly entering them as you face any problems. I work that way, you know. There is nothing you and I can’t handle together.
