Hopeful Plans For You

Whenever a new year arises, people tend to reflect on where they’ve been and possibilities for where they are going. Be cautious about getting caught up in old ruts where your tires spin in the mud of regret. Also watch out for fear-based projections about what is around the corner,  anticipating that things won’t turn out as you would like or will be too hard to manage. Neither of these things are true. I am a loving God with hopeful plans in store for you. I’ll carry you through hard times and open doors for Good things to arrive in your life and in the lives of those you care about. Choose to concentrate on living fully present in today, and hand Me your past and future. This is how you build new habits of peace of mind.

Not Awfulizing Emotions

There are ebbs and tides of difficult emotions that naturally come and go in this life, You can endure them all reasonably well as you lean into My companionship. I face all of these with you, pointing out when you are overreacting or assuming too much responsibility. Instead of chastising yourself or trying desperately to control things that distress you, pick them up and hold them to My Light. Together, let’s observe what is going on and gently set it down, not succumbing to awfulizing emotions or letting fear of the unknown overwhelm you. I will always help you bear what is. Breathe in trust of My helping hand.

Being Around Others

Being around others can be challenging. You long for belonging and acceptance, but interactions with others can be fickle and unpredictable. I am your constant Companion, ever-present and adoring of you. Let this loving truth overpower any fear of being rejected, excluded, or misunderstood. Look for My kindness to appear in conversations and exchanged glances or smiles. Enter these spaces confidently, trusting My Presence in and around you.

The Power of Loving Acceptance

You are My child, and oh-so-beautiful to Me. Look to see My eyes of love for you, which is real and powerful. I think of you as wondrous, kind, and full of Goodness. That is what others see in you and know to be true. They are drawn to you because of it. Let them know how pleasing they are, too, and find your irritability or anxiety becoming overshadowed by the power of loving acceptance. See how this releases unnecessary stress. No worries or fear of commitment are warranted. Let your heart be softened by relying on and trusting in the art of My design.
