It’s Okay to Back Off a Bit

Everyone is a little bit broken, – even you. I don’t say that to sound mean or critical. Rather, I want to reassure you that I see and hold your fragility. I “get” the fearful and anxious thoughts that come into play when you encounter people and circumstances that scare or upset you, or make you second-guess yourself. It’s okay to back off a bit when you feel a need for protection or time to regroup and regain your footing. Run to My safe arms, which are always nearby and open for you. I will help steady you and I always aim to protect you. As I comfort you, your nerves will be soothed. Today doesn’t have to rattle you; trust in My loving Presence.

No Need for Self-Doubt

You can trust Me to be present in every encounter and interaction today. My Presence can bring you a sense of calm. Work on identifying when old habits of angst, dread, worry, or fear start to arise. When you recognize those are happening, say to yourself “Out! These feelings don’t belong in my head.” I have designed your day and you are perfectly equipped to handle whatever comes before you, so there’s no need or use for self-doubt. I am with you and for you, and you are needed and valued exactly as you are without any pretenses. You can trust Me.

A More Leisurely Route

Pace yourself. One thing at a time; one foot in front of the other. Instead of being like a boulder perched at the top  of a steep hill that gets pushed over the edge only to roll faster and faster as you gain momentum toward the bottom, pick a more leisurely route. It may take longer to get to the destination, but the slower pace will allow you to take in and impact so much more along the way. Don’t berate yourself for moving slower than you are accustomed to doing. Recognize that I join you on this journey, and My timing is perfect. What can stand against this plan if I am with you?

Smoothing the Fears and Tension

Let Me help you quiet yourself, as completely as you can. Do not invest your thought time in needless worries. Come to Me. Be still before Me and know that I am God. Recognize Who you are sitting with! I am the Almighty Creator of all things! All-powerful, all-loving, capable of greatness. But I do not Lord this OVER you. Rather, I call you into My loving arms, wanting to embrace you fully and tenderly, smoothing the fears and tension you experience and sorting out the difficulties you face. The good news here is that I am at work in your life. Seek to trust Me with all things. Prepare yourself to step in the direction I point you for your life’s purpose. I love when you sit with Me like this, quietly resting in My Presence and readying yourself for the plan. Thank you for giving yourself to Me during this time.

Unnecessary Anxiety

You’ve lived a life filled with constant concerns, some of which are real and valid. Other times they cause you unnecessary panic and anxiety, with you running at a hectic and frantic pace. I am leading you into a new era! There is a time for everything, and now is the time for peace within. Learn the art of slowing. Engage with each moment presented to you, training yourself in the discipline of attending to one thing at a time.  Take notice of all that I am doing in, through, and around you as you sit back in a wondrous stance absorbing the marvelous view. All is well when you really stop to think about it. Stop with all the relentless striving and take stock in the goodness and calming I am offering to replenish your soul. I call you when you are needed, but I also give you rest. Simply be thankful.

Give of Yourself Freely

I am a God of ABUNDANCE. Abundant supply, Grace, and capacity to forgive. Receive your fill without guilt or shame. By knowing you will have more than enough of what you need, you can use My supply to honor Me and give of yourself freely. Doing My work by faithfully walking with trust in My plans for you can bring great reward to you and to others. You don’t have to be afraid that what you offer isn’t enough. I love you, tenderly and affectionately.

Worries That Trip You Up

Your feet are catching on senseless worries that trip you up. Stop stumbling by recognizing that pride and ego are difficult forces to be reckoned with. I can help you with that. It may require you choosing to allow Me to be in charge. When you take a haphazard path full of insecurities and questions about your value, worth, and capabilities, the risks of tripping, falling, and injury are greater. Worrying about one thing after another, or trying to control outcomes over which you are powerless, will only cause additional hurt and frustration. Step back, allowing Me to help you face the unknown and unfamiliar. You can proceed with trust in My plan and My purpose for your life, helping you get around or move those obstacles. I can help stabilize you, – just turn to Me and ask.

Lean Into My Sturdy Frame When You’re Weak

You are going to have bumps and bruises along the way. Everyone does. Knowing Me doesn’t make you immune to them. This is not because I am a cruel, neglectful, abusive, or punishing God. Quite the contrary! People stumble through life’s realities, and there is pain and discomfort that accompanies it by the sheer nature of human existence. But I am the Great Healer, Counselor, and Advocate. I am your Companion, placing healing ointments of grace and peace upon you along the way. I see your tears; I cry along with you. I recognize your worries and irritations, never dismissing them. Find Me, the One who knows you, and lean into My sturdy frame when you are weak. You don’t always have to be strong. Just be faithful and trust the walk we are taking together. You can still find joy.

Smoother Paths

I am going to clear your thoughts. You can trust Me to help. I will guide you onto smoother paths when you trust Me enough to let Me lead. Nothing will be too hard for you. NOTHING, – because I am here to help and to uplift you with energy and support. I know you get scared and anxious. I see your fears and I hold every single one of them with compassion. All I can say right now is “Don’t worry today. I am helping behind the scenes, and I love you.” Remind yourself of this truth often and it will calm you. Stay grounded in My very real love for you.

Reach for My Hand to Steady You

Hear Me: I am with you, never leaving your side. I am not distant. Stop all this striving on your own and reach for My hand to steady you. I will guide you away from the cliff’s edges. You don’t have to be afraid of the heights. Let’s stand and together enjoy the marvelous view instead of worrying about your footing. Don’t forget to look up now and then on your walk, and take notice of the good things along the way instead of always calculating the distance or amount of difficulty you imagine it will take. Even if a calamity or stress tries to threaten your wellbeing, all is actually well.
