Strength of Character

I seek your undivided attention fixed on My loving Presence, awaiting My gifts for you in this day. I give you daily bread, which includes sustaining you to be a positive presence to others who need Light in a dark world. Encouragement comes easily for you. Don’t be discouraged by small mishaps or other’s negativity. Show strength of character instead, offering mercy and compassion. My Spirit will guide your steps and give you the right words to say. Your job is simply to trust Me in that experience. Trust my good intentions and find great reward. 

Dodge False Traps

Let Me help quiet your anxiety today. When your thoughts move into panic mode, run to Me first for words and images of reassurance. Hush, My child. Remember first and foremost that I am delighted with you! Don’t step into those false traps of self-criticism and worry. Dodge around them, recognizing how they are meant to destroy. I have other plans in mind for you. You can be confident and look forward to things, anticipating Goodness in store for today and for your tomorrows. Run to Me as often as you need to; you’ll find a new, hopeful life with Me. 

Trust Me in Little Increments

Picture Me standing right in front of you, – eye to eye. I want to stop you in your tracks until you firmly see Me looking with all-knowing eyes. Don’t try to dart away from My gaze. I am worried about you because I see and hear your distress. O, My lamb, – if only I could show you all the Goodness ahead, – but I cannot. A vision of that magnitude of change would overwhelm you if it came all at once. You must trust Me in little increments of time. Let today unfold in tiny moments without worry over what has passed or what is yet to come. Let Me spare you the details as you take My hand in child-like trust.

Don’t Be Secretly Distressed

I know your thoughts, – every one of them. Don’t think you need to “screen out” what you bring to Me. Hand over your hard thoughts, too: the worries, lusts, fears, passions, and judgemental criticism. Allow Me to help you see them more clearly in the Light. I don’t want you to be secretly distressed by these things. I won’t hate you for your thoughts or struggles. I desire to be with you, guiding your steps and protecting you from cliffs and danger zones. Share it all with Me as the One you love, and be kinder to yourself. You are human, and I created you. I take you even with your mistakes and setbacks. Let Me fill you with My Grace to strengthen you against things that are harmful, providing internal and lasting Peace instead.

Unanswered Questions

Stop trying to make sense out of every piece of your life. It’s alright to sit with unanswered questions, trusting that answers are for another day. My Peace I give freely to you. Sit quietly with Me; it’s Me you are thirsty for. I give reassurance to calm your nerves. Let Me engulf you in Light as you take in My whisper: “peace be with you”. Be confident even in the unknown, –  knowing you are a good person designed and loved by Me. 

Head Into the Day Willingly

I need your help today, even if it’s hard or you make a mistake or others are insensitive in the process. Make it about Me, and I will bless that. I ask you to spread joy, leading with kindness, compassion, and dedication. By heading into the day willingly, – even if you don’t feel like it, – you are honoring Me and I will bless that. There will be time enough for everything. I have laid out the path before you, and you will find grateful faces surrounding you. I am a generous God, not a harsh, demanding one. Change your perspective from one of being “hurt” or “guilty” to one of being ready to see Goodness. My love abounds and the earth is dancing all around you. Rise up and join the dance.

I Calm the Waters

Like a bubbling brook splashing in every direction, you are hurried and flustered. Stop. Absorb My Presence. See how I calm the waters in an instant. I Am Almighty God. I AM, -not you, – although My hand is indeed at work within you. Practice just being in My Presence. This will take a great act of trust, but you are capable of trusting that I am working for your good. My love abounds and I desire for you to be at peace, resting in My reassurance instead of racing about in frenzy. 

Kind Eyes

I am near. Upholding you, drawing out the tears, smoothing your brow. Take solace in Me. In times of trouble, of which there are and will be many, know that I am God – who bears all things and works things out for Good in the end. You won’t always see those results. I have kind eyes; look to them and release your sorrow and worries to Me. Here you will find comfort and reassurance to get you through the day. 

You Can Find the Calm

Instead of getting caught up in the swirl of anxious thoughts, sit down with Me and relax for a moment. Come talk to Me, quieting that mind of yours. I see your frenzy and I long to wipe your furrowed brow with My tender, compassionate hand. Feel Me beckoning you to sit still and be healed of this unnecessary stress. Let My grace wash over you, and as you once again recognize My peaceful Presence, remember that I have GOOD plans in store for you. You can and will find the calm. Remember, with Me all things are possible.
