I am aiming you toward a slower pace. When you have less activity going on you can be more observant. My Love arrives not because of your performance or accomplishments. Rather, it arrives by Grace in moments of time glimpsed here and there. You’ll miss its impact when you are too busy or frantic to take notice. Be grateful for less mobility right now. Come, hang out with Me in the stillness, observing what begins to stand out and make sense to you. My gifts will arrive most clearly in your slowing.
Ask Me to help quiet your busy mind. Breathe in the peace and calm I surround you with. Picture that My intentions for you are Good. When you release your futile attempts to control things around you, you can then realize I help make things fall into place. Much of your stress can be whisked away. Yes, you will have daily challenges, struggles, and limitations, but elect to rise above them on the rock I provide. Step up with My perspective and take view of My Grace, which will always aid you in resolving the matter of the moment. When you feel most flustered by all that is coming at you, stand still and recognize I am at your side. Nothing can stand against us.
You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.
Try being gentle on yourself. See how this influences your ability to give others Grace, too. There is wiggle room for more kindness to be shared when you relax your judgmental standards and let down your guard. Whenever you hold tight to offenses, I don’t have much space to work in you. The same is true for when you hang on to self-criticism. As you recognize these as barriers to love, bring them before Me as your ultimate Judge. See how I pardon offenses and erase criticism. Watch Me soften your heart and bring you Peace.
I call you to the quiet. Sit still; hear and absorb tiny sounds all around you. Empty your head of its constant throng of thoughts. Take in the quiet, intended for you. Rest like this allows you to hear Me. I am yours. Hand over all your stress to Me. Pay attention to your body with all its fatigue, pain, and tension. I want to mend the broken parts of your Spirit. The parts that are distrusting, cynical, anxious, sad. In the quiet I wash My Grace all over you, finding its way into each crevice or dark surface. Be filled and covered in Light. Know that I have not abandoned you, – ever! I am aware of your suffering. While your painful experiences may not always disappear, know that I am with you and I am at work to make Good arise out of difficulty.
As you stop long enough to truly listen for Me, My Grace sweeps in like the rush of fresh air when you crack open a window. The heat of tension and stress escapes out a little at the same time. I aim to soothe you as much as to guide you. I call you to peace. Find balance by slowing your pace and accepting today as it is. Release the pressure of “what-ifs” and “how to’s”, aiming to be present in the moment and trusting My work in your life. Take one thing at a time and crack that window open as often as you can remember to breathe. I am with you and there for you.
You know how to show love, but other’s don’t always get it. I see you working hard to maintain connections in relationships that are bruised. Sometimes it’s okay to pull back temporarily and stay out of situations when people are draining you. Come to Me for replenishment. I will calm your frazzled nerves and soothe your aching heart. I will show you the way to love again. With My help and Grace you will be able to rise above past offenses and be forgiving and accepting of others even when they “don’t get it”. I do. I see your Good intentions and will bless your path because of it.
I am able to help you take better care of yourself. You don’t have to live in constant overdrive, numbing out with food or cluttered activity. I offer Grace to wash over all your troubles and concerns. Once your mind is eased with My assistance, it frees you to make better choices on what fills your body, mind, and schedule. Come to Me. Relax your jaw and hand over all that clenches you. Breathe in My Light and reassurance that I will make the way for today clear to you. You can rely fully on Me.
Listen to Me first. As you quiet yourself, hear Me reassuring you that you are fine just the way you are. Make that your starting point today. Stop berating yourself or putting undue pressure to perform before your day has even begun. Instead, start by resting in the truth that you are loved by Me, worthy, and capable. I equip you and won’t push you out the door alone to face or handle whatever is before you. We are in this together, with My power and Grace infused in you.
Things will get done. You like everything neat and tidied up. I watch you aiming for no loose ends and mentally forming strategies to handle everything before you in an effort to not feel overwhelmed. Today I invite you to meet Me and relax even with the undone. Give yourself permission to take breaks. As you sit and are present with Me in the moment, My Grace is attending to your every need. Allow Me to soothe your frazzled mind as you practice being still. Know My love for you is real.
