You have already done great things for Me. Others see your Light and are drawn closer to Me as a result. You give reassurance, inspiring others by how you handle adversity. I will not let you go so low as to not be able to get back up. I will never leave or forsake you. Stay strong, especially now. When you think you are at the tipping point, keep focused on My Presence and I will restore your footing. I will continue to supply you with all you need.
Today, listen to My sincere call to you to slow your pace. I ask you to release these fervent efforts to always be on top of ‘tackling the next thing’. Instead, enjoy the present moment. I want to see you laugh out loud, or listen joyfully and open your eyes in wonder, amazement, and appreciation of My beauty placed in your surroundings. Morning light dancing through the leaves, bird song, the smell of green apples or fresh laundry. The work will still get done in due time. Hear Me beckoning you in small moments as you proceed through your day, and at the end, take time to recall our vivid encounters. Relax, enjoying My Peaceful Presence with you.
Why do you fill your head with anxious thoughts, problems to analyze, and preparing for things that haven’t even arisen as concerns yet? You spend so much energy planning ahead for things that never happen. Try practicing being alert in the present today instead. Notice the play of light outside your window. Feel the cool air coming inside. Take in each sound: clock ticking, birds calling, dog barking, the ceiling fan. Notice the variety of colors and textures as you move your eyes to slowly scan left to right. In quiet observance of things around you, you can take your mind off the “to-do list” and see the calming effect being with Me in the present can bring. Now, thank Me for the with-God life you have readily available at your fingertips. Go in peace.
Most of what we’re worried about never comes true. Release your worries and cares prayerfully into My capable hands. Be confident that I am still attending to every detail even in this confusing time. Close your eyes, finding that still, small place where we can commune without words. I send you My Love-light. Let it wash over concerns that linger. Experience My Grace pouring over these moments, freeing you to relax and find the source of all peace. I am with you, in you, and I have plans in store beyond your capacity to imagine right now. Have faith that what I have in store is ultimately going to bring Goodness. You can trust that I will meet your needs one day at a time.
Keep listening. I am near. Even when it’s hard to decipher My call to you, I am still present, always. I may have asked you to pull back from a busy schedule and observe Me in action attending to you and others in small ways. If I’m nudging you into action, you’ll know it. My ways are unstoppable. Take today hour by hour and moment by moment so that you can be aware of My nearness and reassured My purposes are being carried out.
I’m a tender God. I’ve been with you your whole life! Look back and notice the times when things worked out, when good people came through for you, and when you felt truly loved and cared for. I lovingly pick up the broken pieces caused by hurt, stress, and worry. When darkness fights for control in your head, misguidedly convincing you that everything is falling apart or that you aren’t lovable, recognize it as a lie. Come to Me and feel My consoling Presence affirming your worth and the established plan for Goodness ahead. My love for you rises above all else.
Pace yourself. Take a moment here and there to just breathe in My beauty placed around you. Stop and be grateful for our companionship. You aren’t expected to be busy every second of the day. By stopping to take it all in you will find the amazing gift of My Peace readily accessible anywhere you need it. My almost unfathomable love is available every second of the day so remind yourself often to pause and receive it!
Being with Me is not as hard, strange, or distant as you think. All it takes is a quieting in your thoughts to realize I am already there, – listening, loving, and guiding. I want My Presence known in the world. I want you to speak with Me intimately. The benefits of this are huge, accomplishing My works and also restoring and renewing your Spirit. Without Me you can become dried up, drained, and agitated. I desire life flourishing within you, a wellspring of joy. Be cognizant of My Presence in and all around you inviting conversation between us. I am here!
Listen to Me first. As you quiet yourself, hear Me reassuring you that you are fine just the way you are. Make that your starting point today. Stop berating yourself or putting undue pressure to perform before your day has even begun. Instead, start by resting in the truth that you are loved by Me, worthy, and capable. I equip you and won’t push you out the door alone to face or handle whatever is before you. We are in this together, with My power and Grace infused in you.
Things will get done. You like everything neat and tidied up. I watch you aiming for no loose ends and mentally forming strategies to handle everything before you in an effort to not feel overwhelmed. Today I invite you to meet Me and relax even with the undone. Give yourself permission to take breaks. As you sit and are present with Me in the moment, My Grace is attending to your every need. Allow Me to soothe your frazzled mind as you practice being still. Know My love for you is real.
