I have more in store for you! Don’t give in to panic or distressed thoughts. Most of what you imagine as trouble spots never actually occur. Continue looking to Me and latch onto the concept that My plans in store for you are Good and GRAND. My love for you is immense, and I know what is needed to both build up and nurture your soul. Take comfort in Me and all that is ahead.
Clouds in life come and go, but My Light is always present, shining through and beyond them. You don’t have to be so weighed down by the clouds when they are present. Remember that the clouds are always in motion, moving on. Eventually you will feel the Light again. You will get through this. Trust My constant warmth, accessible even under cloud cover. Know that I am with you always, and no darkened experiences can take away our bond.
I know you like your alone time. I also bring you close to others for a reason. While I am always present and available to you, there are times when you need human interaction. Be divinely inspired to reach out to others today. Make yourself vulnerable enough to trust being on the receiving end of those encounters, too. You don’t have to hide behind that wall of fear or distrust any longer. I will always keep you safe. I am a God who is both “with you” and “with one another.” Find Me present in the mixture of these meetings with others.
Your life-pace appears loaded with too much to take care of. Despite outward appearances that the volume is too overwhelming, you and I can handle it together. Don’t let yourself fall into a trap of feeling incapable. Intentionally take a slower pace, allowing a sense of calm to rule. Let’s go at this one piece at a time. Be amazed at the end of the day on how well things work out when you trust Me to help.
Let yourself embrace a broader view. You can walk into this new year and into any situation with confidence and curiosity once you accept the fact that I’ve got this, and I have so much more in store. My plans for you are BIG. Don’t let that thought intimidate you. You are small enough to be Mine, yet great enough to handle whatever is coming in tandem with Me and My purpose. Don’t kid yourself into expecting or desiring less. Get ready for more, anticipating that important and life-giving changes are ahead. My plans for you are GOOD.
I will bless you in the waiting. I will give you a vision for how things will work out eventually. You can trust Me with the plan and outcomes even if you don’t see it yet. I won’t leave you hanging. I’ts OK to be vulnerable around others now and then. They can relate to you when you let down your guard. With Me you have nothing to fear. Learn and practice being okay with not having everything figured out all the time. My Grace is enough to fix that.
There are small, anxious battles waging for control in your mind. I can and will help you focus and conquer them. My intent for you is to have full peace of mind. You can get there moment by moment. It takes an act of will to place all of your cares and fears before Me. Trust that I am working things out for your good. I am a loving God, capable of all things. Nothing is too big for Me. Breathe in My Grace filling you with confidence and calm. Peace I leave with you, given freely.
If you’re in a fragile state, remember that it’s okay – you are safe with Me. I’m right here to reassure and console your tender heart. Wrap yourself in My fleecy blanket of love, taking time out to rest. (Sometimes a little nap is all you need). Remain in the comfort of My Presence while I attend to you fully. Let Me serve you a banquet of kindness and understanding until you are calmed again. All is well, and you can, indeed, carry on.
You are burdened by many hard things, but mostly your own torrent of thoughts. I can calm the wind hitting your boat in this hurricane of worry, but it requires great faith and trust on your part. First, ask Me to help – and I don’t mean with a frenzied, frantic cry for “Help!” Rather, use a calm, determined request that lets Me know you trust Me to respond in your best interest. Then, step back and get out of the way while I work on bailing the water. You don’t need to keep reaching back in to grab the bucket as if I’m not doing it effectively or quick enough. Step into this day even with water sloshing at your feet, knowing I will not let you sink. Then laugh with Me about the mess. I know your storms; they come and go. We’ve been through this before. Trust Me again. I won’t abandon ship.
Look to Me to find out what it’s like to be joyful again. In My supportive arms there is no room for distracting worries. Learn to quickly release petty irritations in order to move on to greater peace. I will help you. I’ll reveal choices you can make, moment by moment, that buy into a radiant life versus staying stuck in the gray mire of anxiety. See My words as a radiant neon light beckoning you to “Come this way!” It’s worth the effort to release old hurts or unfounded fears, moving toward the Light. Choose to do whatever it takes to step away from negative habits you long to be rid of.
