In whatever you encounter today, focus on My love for you. With every bite of food, every breeze that brushes your face, every friendly greeting from others, be reminded that I love you fully and completely, just as you are. When negative self-talk or assumptions try to take over and influence you, consciously push those thoughts aside. Breathe in trust; exhale hurt. Make room for My love to enfold and inhabit you. I can heal and restore you with light and Goodness as you concentrate on My love calming your nerves and soothing your mind.
I will restore you and keep you. I will protect and be with you. You don’t have to be self-conscious. Everywhere you go today is where I am. There is no room you enter that I am not already present in. Picture My Presence right next to and even within you, not distantly across the room. I am that close! With Me in you, you can hear My voice enter your thoughts. Today I whisper, “You can do it!” Have confidence in Me and My plan, trusting that all is unfolding exactly as it should.
I know the pressure you feel. I see the good intentions of your heart. I know you even better than you know yourself. I’ve been trying to teach you an important lesson: the combination of thankfulness and trust. In each moment you have the opportunity to thank Me for something and to trust Me with everything. Pausing in your busy day to acknowledge Me with thankful trust will bring you satisfaction, comfort, and peace. Try it now. Ease your needless anxiety, coming to Me with an appreciative heart so that I can refresh your perspective.
Whatever is burdening you, I urge you to set it down. Take a break from obsessing about it or trying to fix it. Put it next to you on the table and come sit with Me for a bit, instead. Relax in My Presence, – experiencing a return of calm and peacefulness. Even if this is only momentary before you scramble to pick it all back up, remember that you can take a break from fretting as often as you need to. I will be waiting, each time.
Think of the word “softness” today. You can tread lightly wherever you walk, – not driven to impose on others but being gently present instead. I am not hard on you, but you often are on yourself. It hurts when Me when you do that and I ache for you to show more self-compassion, too. Try going softly today – especially lightening up on the self-criticism. You are loved fully by Me, exactly as you are.
You are so busy. There is a lot spinning around in that head of yours. I want you to put on the brakes and slow down, coming to a stop directly in front of Me. I call you to calmer ways. Once you yield to Me, you will see that all of your obsessive planning is unnecessary. I can and will take care of you, – ALWAYS. Use your ability to trust Me and hand over your worried frenzy. Take time at the stoplight to relax and re-focus. I’ve got this.
I am the Great Healer touching every wound and soreness. You are dealing with illness and stress; parts of your body are struggling. Discomfort and worry are vying for time in your head. Sit still. Breathe. Really, – breathe deep and relax, clearing your mind out and being present in front of Me. I am watching over you. Whatever needs to be revealed will be shown in due time. Worrying about it won’t help; trusting Me will! I attend to all things – even your uncomfortable symptoms. Picture Me as physician, listening and attending to your description of whatever concerns you. Do what you can to be healthy and well, and let Me take care of the rest.
Enter this day with eyes wide open to behold My creation with wonder. Don’t jump too far ahead with planning & worry. All that stress and teeth-grinding is not good for you. I want what is best for you! You’ll be able to accept this more readily as you walk with trust for My timing of all events. Enjoy what I place in your day, engaging all of your senses.
Your mind is foggy and weighed down. Picture Me instead. Focus your thoughts on an image of Me standing lovingly in front of you, inviting you in to the day as I put my arm around your shoulder and guide you through each doorway. You have no idea what’s in store, but I do. Let’s head into the unknown together with peaceful and even joyful anticipation of all we will encounter.
It’s okay if you have to work at being peaceful. Your active mind tugs at your efforts, and the world calls you to constant distraction. This is why I teach things like “being present in the moment” and the importance of slowing down. Being at peace requires an intentional choice to pause and meet Me in the present. One glance My way and you will be better able to recognize that all is well. Peace results from a deep will to trust in Me. My Goodness overrides all else in the world. My love for you is real.
