I give you lots of food for thought. Sometimes you rush through My word like a fast-food meal in the drive-through. Instead, try taking your time as with a sit-down meal, appreciating each bite and ingesting it until it nourishes you. My word is the lamp to light your way. Come to My banquet with a grateful heart, ready to take it all in and become truly satisfied and full. Let Me reassure you, fulfilling every need so that you can find joy and peace.
Stop your habit of always planning for the worst. I am a loving God with great, holy, and majestic plans in store. Your eyes cannot yet see what I have arranged, but it includes deep, rich healing and touching the lives of MANY. I will nourish your spirit along the way. Together we will accomplish and experience GREAT THINGS. Know this, trust Me, and set your mind on it. Plan for the BEST and allow Me to ready you for it all.
You are pressed for time so often. Spending thought time with Me is essential for finding your way to My peaceful realms. Try not to skip out on conversations with Me that can be had, intentionally, wherever you go. Find Me ever-ready to listen and guide. The more you spend time with Me, the easier it is to hear My voice clearly. Let Me reassure you “It will all be okay.” Trust Me with this life-truth.
Be thirsty for life with Me. When you find yourself craving something, – food, beverages, attention, prestige, material things, – choose for a moment to acknowledge that I am a God who provides. There is peace of mind that transpires in this holy transaction of thought. I always provide enough for you in 24-hour increments. If you are left still feeling unsatisfied, consider turning your desire over to Me for examination and input. Waiting for things to come from heavenly realms may re-shape what you desire. Let Me curb your hunger in ways that truly satisfy beyond what you can imagine.
Go ahead -imagine big things! Don’t forget to include Me in that vision, walking side by side with you and lighting the path with My glory. I create big things and have so much intended for you. Do you believe this? You must alter old habits of worry and leave anxiety in the past. The better you get at releasing your worries, concerns, and hurts to Me, the calmer and more receptive you will be to the Good I have prepared. Turn your whole life over to Me, allowing Me to guide the plan as I see fit. Be open to change, trusting Me to be lovingly in charge of it all.
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.
It’s so important that you take a day of rest. Your world bombards you with a constant stream of electronics and pressures, all vying for your attention. I call you to put down your phone and quiet your busy mind. Use all of your senses taking in this day and moment. See color, feel temperature and movement, take time to truly taste each bite. Touch the things and people I place before you today with eye-opening wonder. See how enlivened you become when you use a day of rest like this to be rejuvenated and restored.
Remain obedient to the call I place on your heart. Listen for Me daily as I gently guide you with each small task. You don’t have to see the full picture yet. It’s okay to do something small today. Each little piece adds up over time, and no act of kindness or intentional task completed in My name goes unnoticed by Me. Do these things in a Spirit of Love and willingness. Your servant heart is glorious to behold and gives My hope to others.
I won’t overwhelm you with too much to do. Hand off the excess to Me. Trust Me to solve the puzzle and master the plan, all in due time. Focus only on today, addressing one thing at a time. Do so with an attitude of acceptance and peace, allowing calmness to rule instead of frenzy. This is how you walk in My footsteps; one small step at a time.
You are special to Me. I am so pleased with you! You are very hard on yourself and this breaks My heart. Don’t fall into the trap of needless anxiety or unwarranted shame. I call you to a life that THRIVES! Abundant life, filled with Goodness. Face your days with eyes seeking and anticipating My Goodness. This perspective is critical to your capacity to receive. Thwart the tendency to worry or over-plan for potential disaster. Smash those worries with a rock of confidence in My powerful plan for Goodness. Be bold and purposeful on this path.
