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.

I Hear Your Deepest Wishes

I hear your deepest wishes. I long for you to find your ultimate fulfillment with Me, but I also know your human nature. Know that I have planted both kinds of desires in you and it’s OK to find pleasure in earthly things! Drink in the Light, atmosphere, sounds, and people I put in your path today. Be open to My love-song, and receive it with confidence that you are loved and will always be well cared for by Me. Be careful not to turn these experiences into an idol, though. Seek Me first and all else will fall into place with My hand upon your life. Find blessing in the gifts of today, knowing you are worthy of being the love of My life.

The Parts You Contribute

You don’t have to get so worked up over things today. Ask Me to help you settle down inside. When you start to rev up with anxiety or kick into control mode out of fear, push the pause button and turn to Me for perspective. Take a deep breath. Remember that I can and do turn all situations into good results over time. It’s not all up to you to lead, fix, or control. Once you see the outcomes are not all up to you to create, you can get back to concentrating on the parts you contribute. Remember how capable you are, and trust that I equip you for all that is needed. You can count on Me to be there with and for you, always.

Give of Yourself Freely

I am a God of ABUNDANCE. Abundant supply, Grace, and capacity to forgive. Receive your fill without guilt or shame. By knowing you will have more than enough of what you need, you can use My supply to honor Me and give of yourself freely. Doing My work by faithfully walking with trust in My plans for you can bring great reward to you and to others. You don’t have to be afraid that what you offer isn’t enough. I love you, tenderly and affectionately.

Untie the Knots

Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to quiet that busy, fretful head of yours. Try this tactic: tell yourself repeatedly “Nothing matters as much as I think it does.” The only thing that truly matters is using critical thinking to determine “What is the best way to be loving in this scenario?” If you see another person tangled in distress and can recognize the ropes that threaten to trip them up, help untie those knots by encouraging them to trust in Me.  If you find yourself wrapped in a tangled rope of worry over something I didn’t place in your path for you to address, step aside and let Me handle it instead. I will give you strength and insight to know how to handle each situation you encounter.

Good With That

Know that you are enough for Me, and I am enough for you. Be good with that. Come to Me with your worries and fears when they creep in and start to unsettle you. Hand them over to Me, then rest with trust in My arms. As you recover and regain your footing, look back at Me, your constant companion, with each step you take forward. Live in 24-hour segments, releasing the cares of tomorrow and the regrets of yesterday. Know that I’ve got your back and you are truly loved. Don’t worry about getting it all done today; sometimes only part of the work is necessary. Piece by piece, you will accomplish what is needed and still be able to breathe in My peace.

What Are You Thirsty For?

You don’t have to miss a thing. However, many of the things you are trying to juggle may be exactly what is throwing you off. What are you pursuing these days: Perfection? Notoriety? Worth? Possessions? Relief from discomfort? A problem-free life? It’s easy to be distracted by these things, which are often unrealistic and will not inherently satisfy. Sit with Me and be fully present to our relationship first. I am drawing you to a different well. Seek Me first, and find Me with you, attentive to all of your needs and wants. I may refine your desires, but I see them all and I love you enough to send My well of living water. I know what you are thirsty for.

I Make All Things Manageable

You are tired. I see your fatigue. Allow Me to slow the pace today. I can renew your energy simply by not overwhelming you. Take it easier – just one thing at a time. There is so much benefit to slowing this way. You can be intentional about not taking on more than what is needed. Let others step up to the plate, and relax as you hand off some of that responsibility. Don’t forget that I am yours for the day, too, so hand some of it off to Me, as well. I will lighten your load and make all things manageable.

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.
