You are ready. (More ready than you know). I have been leading, guiding, and strengthening you to prepare you for this day and the tasks before you. You must take this part one day at a time; don’t try to jump ahead. These days cannot be skipped over. There is a process to go through. You are no stranger to good-byes, which are also part of the journey. Lean on Me. My hands are upon your shoulders, giving encouragement, reassurance, and a gentle nudge forward – but My hands never fully release you. I stay in direct contact with you at all times. Move ahead with Me in holy trust.
I see your pain. I hear your fearful and occasionally agitated voice, and I recognize your wish for peace and love. Remind yourself that I long for you all the day long. Our connection is not “magical”, – it is REAL. My tender heart is yours. My strength is there for you. Seek My kingdom first in your decision-making, and discover that I am there with you all the way through even when life feels painful. Imagine my loving, supportive arms around you in these moments. Hear My tender voice speaking at times through others, too. Utilize thankfulness as a tool to draw closer to Me.
You are designed to be at peace. The world calls people to convoluted lifestyles with mixed up priorities, frenzied to-do lists, and misguided agendas. Yes, I have things for you to do, – but My way is created to not overburden you beyond what you can handle. Come to me if you are weary and feeling overwhelmed. Find a quiet place to speak with Me, then hand your worries into My tender care. As you take time to listen, – really listen!, – to Me, you will find that I am less hard on you than you are on yourself. Lower the level of your expectation bar to accommodate realistic goals today.
I am a gentle God. Do not mistake My gentleness for lacking in power, because I still am the Great I Am who can accomplish all things. I may be calling you to sort out your priorities, releasing things that aren’t worth your time in My eyes as I help you determine what’s important. In a quiet space, hear My forgiveness. Let go of hurt. I can help you find the peace you so desire. In the quiet you will find renewal, clarity, and strength to do what is right and good.
