I am your God, – with you and for you, – always present at attention. This means you no longer have to worry about being ‘perfect’ or ‘worthy’. I notice all of your good intentions and thoughtful ways. I also see the screw-ups and mishaps, unintentional or humanly flawed as they are. The bottom line is that I want Good things for you, regardless of mistakes. I take messes and help repair them. Together we can ask for forgiveness as needed and deliver acceptance to others without holding back. Come to Me with the broken parts of life, in faithful hope that I will help things get better.

You strive so hard. That busy head has a hard time shutting off or slowing down. Constant planning and busy-ness can be signs of how uncomfortable you are in the waiting and with silence, but you need not be so afraid. I’m inviting you to enter this new year differently. Come, sit often with Me at the well and experience My waters of grace and fulfillment. Take a sip of contentment and reassurance. I have you in the palm of My hands at all times. Sit in silence regularly with Me, truly handing each day over and practicing the art of trusting faith. Soon, you will find yourself actually longing for silence because you’ll understand how much our time together like this helps. Even if you only have a moment, seek My peace-filled Presence in silent communion with Me.

I am still with you and for you, even when you feel like you’re coming up short. It’s okay to not be on top of everything all the time. Sometimes, this may offer others the chance to step up to the plate. You can trust Me to be God and to work things out even if you feel unprepared. Let Me be in charge while you take a step back, and watch My great hand at work. Find peace deep within as you trust Me to take care of all things.

You feel the pressure of the clock ticking and finding enough time to do everything that is needed. I get it. But carving out time like this with Me can really help your use of time to be more efficient. When you calm yourself in My reassuring Presence, it enables you to think more clearly and focus on what is most needed in the present moment. Resist the urge to examine your whole list because that just stirs up panic. Turn to Me and remind yourself of My reliable involvement. Tell yourself, “All is well.” I have a plan that unfolds perfectly for you, just one piece at a time. Take one step, pause, look to Me, and then another….soon, you will be further ahead. Use faithful expectation in how I have equipped you for all you need to live well.

You’ve got this, simply because “WE’ve” got this. Stick with Me today, arm-in-arm, facing each task with energy and drive fueled by Holy passion. Watch as I give a smiling side-eye to you, knowing what’s in store and all that will be accomplished. Then, at the end of the day, rest with Me as you reflect upon all the Goodness that was had. I work like that in, with, and through you and others. On that you can rely.

When you find yourself in a place where you are super worked up about something, it is probably time to step back. Remove yourself and check your thoughts to see if you are being tripped up by thinking “it’s all up to me” to handle or fix or address. That simply isn’t true. I am your God. I am sovereign over all things. Step back until you can see and be reminded of this deep truth: that as your God, I am with you and looking out for you. Maybe I only need you to show up and offer your presence, because I’ll handle the rest. Leave any “fixing” up to My capable hands. I want you to find peace again, not living agitatedly with anxious and stress-filled approaches. Step back, breathe, and be calmed by how I am at work in your life.

Cozy up to Me, like a small child who wants a story read before bedtime. Come close, with child-like hunger and trust for special time together. I am safe, comforting, and trustworthy. I recognize your vulnerable side that just needs to be held a while. When no one else “gets” that or sees you or provides the validation you desire, you can count on Me to be ever-present and aware of all your intricate needs. Come to My open arms for gentle reassurance. I’ve got you, My child; you needn’t be afraid.

Concentrate on being My Light today: My partner, – with light-hearted humor, a bright smile, and a warm, welcoming, engaging nature. That draws people in for more and improves interactions. Being authentically light-filled promotes healing and wellness. You are truly an encourager, so just relax and forget about worrying if you are making a good impression. I already know you’ll be great. Rely on My truthful estimation of who you are and what you are capable of.

You’re not wasting time when you spend it with Me. I help you get into gear and focus. I calm you down whenever you push the pause button and remember to join Me in trust for My design of your day. Yes, I want you to give your all, but I don’t want that to be driven by anxiety or crazy-making. Come to Me first with all your imagined plans and to-do lists, and let’s sort them out together. I am with you and enjoy spending the whole day together, really.
