Cut Yourself Some Slack

You have a hard time giving yourself permission to take a break. Even when the break involves communication with Me, you still feel the urge to rush off and ‘be productive’ elsewhere. Cut yourself some slack. Get in tune with the essential nature of finding quiet time with Me. I can make your movement so much more efficient and effortless, but your striving must be for building My kingdom. Any other purpose will make you spin your wheels and burn out your engine. Be ignited for My plans, fueled by quiet thought and prayer time daily. Giving yourself room and permission to pause doesn’t make you a ‘slacker’. It’s essential to become grounded with Me first and foremost.

Be Encouraged

I have words of inspiration and encouragement for you today. Words of reassurance that I make all things new! Whatever is troubling you or weighing you down, let Me have a go at it. I tear down walls and rebuild bridges. You know Me. Our history shows that I am a God who parts waters, washing the hostility away behind you as I bring you to new ground. Be encouraged, and allow Me to give you vision with a new perspective. I am the God who renews and regenerates. Take it in.

Find Better Balance

I see how fatigued you get. That busy head of yours is almost always in over-drive. Park the car for a second and check in with Me. Is everything you are trying to do really a priority when you pass it by My scrutiny? What can you let go of, delegate, or set-aside for another day? Find better balance today by coming to Me to sort things out. I can give you clarity and focus. Remember that I continually offer peace to you. Stop and receive My Grace-filled gift.

Positive Expectations

The forecast for today doesn’t have to be bleak. Set your mind on higher horizons, with chin up and positive expectations. When you anticipate good things just around the corner, it lifts your mood. Even if you run into miserable circumstances or roadblocks impeding your dreams, remember that I am with you. Together we’ve got this. Pick your feet up as I lead you to higher ground. Have faith that you can step over the mire. I will get you through, on to bigger and better things.

Don’t Overthink the Day

All is well. You don’t have to overthink the day ahead. I have taken care of all the details. It’s all laid out on My God-map for you. You have prepared well enough. Now your task is only to journey slowly with Me, – one step, one hour, one task at a time. Let your focus be on loving others, which is pleasing to Me. Be simple and intentional with your gestures and words. My Way is one of peacefulness and gentleness toward and through you today.
