Capable of Being at Peace

You are full of valid feelings and emotions, yet you are so hard on yourself, judging yourself too critically. I made you capable of being at peace. You are loving and loved! As you treat yourself with tenderness, the emotions that surface will be freed. With practice you can learn to offer yourself better self-acceptance. Once you do that, laughter will well up more freely. Let Me pour out My Grace on you, soothing the anxiety and washing away tension. Allow yourself to picture and live a life of happiness and ease. You can trust and believe that this is actually what I want for you.

Holding On To Offenses

I want you to continue to soften your heart. Holding on to offenses will not serve you well. If you’re stuck with lasting bitterness and distrust, come to Me. Ask for My help to find and share Grace with those who have hurt you. I want to free you of that burden and help you access peace again. As you practice forgiveness and show mercy, it is you who will receive the most benefit.

Smooth Away the Tension

The world is full of busy-ness. I call you to a place of calm and stillness so you can sense how near I am. While things around you clamor for your attention, I sit and wait patiently for you to turn your gaze to Me. Seek My compassionate and reassuring eyes, waiting to receive you with total love. Allow Me to smooth away the wrinkles and tension of the world, helping you to stop feeling so bad about yourself all the time. Let’s wash those things away, taking responsibility for whatever interactions need to happen to repair hurts, seek forgiveness, or release your self-blame. Breathe deeply, knowing I make all things new. Turn to Me and become repaired, whole, and freed.

Let’s Trade Seats

I see when you are perching yourself on a pedestal of righteousness. I know that stems from you feeling hurt or wronged. It takes so much negative energy to be constantly judging other’s behaviors or intentions, or feeling bitter, angry, and annoyed by their actions. How about this: let’s trade seats for a while. Let Me be the judge of others as you climb down from that high seat, allowing Me to be the one carrying the burden of criticism. Only I can see the truth. Find that in walking humbly you can also experience greater peace. Let Me relieve you of unnecessary burdens and rid you of residual hurt so you can walk freely.

Choose How You’ll Respond

My Spirit resides within you. Your task is merely to choose how you’ll respond to it. Many respond with skepticism or distrust. They say, “Yes! I believe”, then turn and walk away with fears, worries, and resentments from the challenges of life. They forget the abundant resource ever available within themselves to find My Peace in all circumstances. You can respond with enthusiasm, instead. The path of a life accompanied by My Presence and aware of My Peace is a road complete with the fullness of joy, and always available to you. What choice will you make in your response today?

Tired and Fatigued

You may not be as tired as you think. Stress and anxiety can make you over-think plans for your life instead of trusting in My shepherding. Feel the gentle nudge of My staff reminding you that I am leading the way. Your only job is to follow. When you busy your mind with planning and worries you can easily become frazzled and feel fatigued by it all. Wash yourself free of needless worry. Refresh yourself in My basin of Grace where streams of abundance flow. Allow Me to lead you into this day, entrusting all encounters and tasks on the journey to Me. See how your energy rebounds, supplying you with the bounce in your step needed to traverse the hills ahead.

When People Are Draining You

You know how to show love, but other’s don’t always get it. I see you working hard to maintain connections in relationships that are bruised. Sometimes it’s okay to pull back temporarily and stay out of situations when people are draining you. Come to Me for replenishment. I will calm your frazzled nerves and soothe your aching heart. I will show you the way to love again. With My help and Grace you will be able to rise above past offenses and be forgiving and accepting of others even when they “don’t get it”. I do. I see your Good intentions and will bless your path because of it.

How You Approach Things

I never leave you to handle things all by yourself. I can redeem past hurts & sorrows and help with current challenges, making Goodness happen, but you are still allowed the freedom to choose how you see and approach things. Consider bringing your perspective before Me for review. Allow Me to help sort things out and assist you with clearing your mind. As you become open to My loving, gentle guidance I will give you direction on how to handle whatever you are encountering. In choosing to push your momentary distress aside and trust Me instead, I’ll make way for a fresh outlook on the most helpful approach to your situation.

What I Did Was Enough

Why do you stress out with mental replays of the day before or past interactions? What’s done is done. Regretting that you didn’t do more or say the right thing won’t help. Nestle into My reassuring arms, trusting Me to make something Good come out of everything. I suggest that when anxious thoughts creep up, train yourself to say, “What I did was enough. God will take care of the rest.” The hardest part is choosing to believe this very truth.  Be consoled by the fact that you don’t have to fix everything. Offer Me your best and I will do whatever mending is needed.

Be Yourself Without Agonizing Afterward

You don’t have to worry so much about agendas, impressions, and accomplishments. Today is a day of connection. I call you to listen well, smile, laugh, and be yourself without agonizing about it afterward. I am in you and all around. You may even find yourself enjoying the interactions today. I love you just as you are, and there is freedom in allowing this to sink in. You can trust that I will bring you peace, because I am the Prince of Peace, after all.
