It’s Okay to Back Off a Bit

Everyone is a little bit broken, – even you. I don’t say that to sound mean or critical. Rather, I want to reassure you that I see and hold your fragility. I “get” the fearful and anxious thoughts that come into play when you encounter people and circumstances that scare or upset you, or make you second-guess yourself. It’s okay to back off a bit when you feel a need for protection or time to regroup and regain your footing. Run to My safe arms, which are always nearby and open for you. I will help steady you and I always aim to protect you. As I comfort you, your nerves will be soothed. Today doesn’t have to rattle you; trust in My loving Presence.

Allow Me to Take the Pressure Off

There are so many things clamoring for your attention as you replay thoughts from previous encounters or imagine interactions yet to come. Both are needless activities. I call you to awareness of the present! You are Mine. Stop and take stock of everything I am providing in this very moment: food, warmth, love, safety, security, – plans for your welfare, not for dismay! Your flesh and bones are in working condition for the tasks I have in store for you. Stop agonizing over insignificant details. Give in to My Will, discovering how I make life flourish for you. Abundant, tender, meaningful life. As you rely on Me to take care of you, worries about the future will lessen. My reliable provision is there for you, so allow Me to take the pressure off.

No Need for Self-Doubt

You can trust Me to be present in every encounter and interaction today. My Presence can bring you a sense of calm. Work on identifying when old habits of angst, dread, worry, or fear start to arise. When you recognize those are happening, say to yourself “Out! These feelings don’t belong in my head.” I have designed your day and you are perfectly equipped to handle whatever comes before you, so there’s no need or use for self-doubt. I am with you and for you, and you are needed and valued exactly as you are without any pretenses. You can trust Me.

Treat Self and Others with Compassion

Take notice: I call to you subtly and softly when you slow your mind’s activity enough to be aware of My Presence. I am not just “near”, – I am within you, looking out through your eyes and surrounding you fully. There’s no need to spend so much time comparing, contrasting and rating yourself against others. This sadness Me, because all I ask is for you to love one another and yourself. Learn to recognize the built-in Goodness inherently pairing you and I. This will help you treat yourself and others with more compassion. I will protect you from harm when you encounter ridicule from others who don’t know or trust My Presence. Just continue the Good work I have started in you and spread the news of hope and love. Rejoice in the dawn of this day!

Concentrate On Our Conversation

I have much to say, but you will need ears that can hear Me. Are there obstacles clouding your judgment or distractions causing you to not concentrate on our conversation? Name them, and work to uproot them. Hear Me whispering – I desire so much for us to have constant communication. I want to shower you with the blessing of our relationship. Don’t turn your face away, confusing the silence with thinking I have stopped talking. You are Mine. Tell Me what is on your heart, and find Me listening attentively and compassionately to your every word.

Available Moment by Moment

Just because you are taking on new tasks does not mean you have to lose contact with Me. Moment by moment, I am available to you. Find true quiet moments, – at the table, in the shower or car, wherever you can remember to stop and pause, – and make yourself open to Me. This quiet, genuine communion will have a powerful impact, because it’s a union that no other can destroy. Our connectivity will be warm, understanding, and patient. It is welcoming and inviting, grounded in love. Find how calming it is to be attentive to our deep connectedness. Breathe in deep drafts of My love for you and find healing and freedom in our relationship. I desire to bless you daily with this kind of help. Seek Me and find Me with you.

Confident in Our Daily Partnership

Remember, I intend for you to live 24 hours at a time. Don’t get so far ahead of yourself with imagined conversations, events, and outcomes. These can cause anxiety and are not of My design. I want you to become dependent on Me, confident in our daily partnership and able to hear My voice and experience My Presence. Don’t be misled into thinking you have to know all the answers and you don’t need Me. Take the grapes from My vine freely, and have your fill of My sustainable supply. It will be substantial enough to meet your needs in this day. Just stay present, concentrating on My daily bread supplied to you.

Frame Your Mindset in Eager Anticipation for Good

Like a breath of fresh air, joy comes in the morning. The dawn brings elements of hope and new perspective. Tell yourself, “Things are looking up!” and frame your mindset in eager anticipation for Good things to come, not fearing the worst-case scenario. Hoping for the best can set your feet and your mind in the right direction on course to actually see it unfold that way. Don’t forget that I am always with and for you, – by your side as we aim for bright horizons.

Driven with Excessive Responsibility

I call you to attend to certain tasks today, but this is never meant to be heard as a hard task-master. I call out with cries of love for you! How much I desire for you to first and foremost hear My bid for your loving gaze in return. You are so hard on yourself, – so driven with excessive responsibility for many things. As you learn to rely on me, your Maker and the great artist designing your life, you begin to comprehend how My capacity is greater than your needs. Turn to Me and find me Present at all times, and lean on Me to discover the strength and sustenance you need to complete all that is on your plate. Come away with My peace and joy ignited in your spirit.

Build Calmness Into Your Day

You don’t have to be so rushed. There are ways to build calmness into your day, and into your head and heart. Choose to sit still, closing your eyes if you can, and concentrate on slow, deep breathing. Notice the Light pouring into your eyes, even through closed lids. Repel thoughts of tasks waiting to be done, deflecting them out of your mind intentionally as you seek My calming Presence. Soak it in. Repeat these mantras until My truth settles in: All is well. I am yours. Hear My voice.
