Be Strengthened to Manage

Take care of yourself, including tending to your need for food, exercise, and rest. Build in time for conversations with Me daily as part of that self-care, too, because I want to build up your spiritual self, as well. I cannot implement the big plans I have in store for you until you can be strengthened to manage all that will be involved. There are many demands on your time. Gently I call you to be reminded that My well does not run dry. You can dip your ladle in these life-giving waters of Grace as many times as is needed to quench your parched body. As you extend yourself and thirst for more water, I will replenish and recharge your body and spirit. You will be ready for a multitude of tasks requiring your energy and concentration if you come to the well frequently.

Give Room to Pause

Walk with Me at My pace. Let things slow down a bit and give room to pause now and then. Take a break from noise, electronics, and social media. Look outdoors. Breathe in the stillness and calm. You are so hard-wired to be doing things all the time, but I tell you it’s OK and good to NOT “do” for a while. You are learning the beauty and importance of mastering this skill. Just be and soak it all in with amazement and wonder. Notice the calming effect this has on you and your perspective. Grace-filled moments are all around, so be replenished as life and next steps unfold.

Holy Things Occur

As you open yourself to My guidance, holy things occur. Lives are touched by your compassion. Your sensitivity allows you to connect to others with an innate sense of trustworthiness, which gives them the message it is safe to open up. Speak truth, show kindness, and act lovingly. All of this is embedded in Grace. Holy touch, holy eyes that see and ears that hear. Allow holiness to take over your life daily, hourly, and one task at a time. This doesn’t have to be a daunting or unreachable request. My message is simple: you are already holy in My likeness as you practice being present in these ways to others.

Show a Smile of Reassurance

Go about your day, attending capably and lovingly to others I place in your path. I ask you to listen, reassure, teach, and guide them. I’ll equip you for this task, so just listen for My nudging. I will gift you with My patience and grace. Show a smile of reassurance on your face. Allow My Light to shine within and all around you this way, soothing frazzled ends. You will understand what it means to live with peace flowing like a river as you become a river guide in this flow of everlasting love.

No Need to be Carrying Shame

Why are you still carrying around that shame inside your head? When I say you are forgiven, it is a done deal. There’s no need to keep going back and rehashing scenes in your head, beating yourself up over words or actions you now regret. Glance at them if you must, but only to learn what you want to aim to do differently in the future. Other than that, I call you to love yourself and accept the forgiveness and grace that’s already been awarded by Me. I want you to live a life of peace and self-acceptance, knowing that you are loved by Me and that is enough.

Handling Disagreements

In this world there will always be disagreements. Sometimes the wayfinding isn’t clear-cut. It’s okay to have your own opinions, but it’s also important to seek to understand others. Hear them out, and if necessary, agree to disagree. You can share your views diplomatically when they are tempered by My Grace. Ask for My help to ‘keep your cool’, and start every comment by considering the most loving and compassionate intention you can back it up with. I will give you the words to say and equip you with the way to phrase it. Aim to treat all with dignity and respect. Trust Me to help.

You Are My Masterpiece

You are My masterpiece! How I’ve loved painting, sculpting, and rearranging you into a beautiful image. Do you recognize the beauty in you? How I would love to see you walking confidently today. Can you imagine the possibilities if you saw yourself as fully acceptable, accepted, richly blessed, and basking in grace? If only you would allow yourself to trust this truth using a simple act of breathing, “I choose to believe”. You can do this! It’s not egotistical to choose self-acceptance when viewing through the lens of My eye. I want goodness to surround you, and I desire for you to receive My love for you. Say yes! Say thank you. Choose to believe; that’s all I ask.

Don’t Get Pulled Off Track Today

Each day people will do small deeds that are inconsiderate or unkind. Sometimes big injustices happen. Even so, I want you to release these irritations and frustrations into My care. Don’t allow your thoughts and emotions to run wild with ideas about how to tell others off or bring about justice on your own. This wastes important energy and will distract you from the peace and joy available within. Don’t get pulled off track today or be derailed by small injustices. Releasing things to My care doesn’t make you a “doormat”. It takes great strength of character to choose to walk away or to treat others with dignity and respect despite their behavior. My way is better. My way will free you and allow you to rise above any circumstance with great calm and internal respect. Pray for your enemies, even if this does not come easily. I will give you the grace, strength and wisdom in how to handle the situation if your heart is intent upon following My way.

Practice Love and Acceptance

So much of the world is presented in extremes: “right” vs. “wrong”; “my way” vs. “your way”. I am much more tolerant of frailties and misgivings. My will is for what is full of Goodness and Love, – the extreme Light of the world. I desire for you to practice that kind of love and acceptance of others even in their places of darkness. People get overshadowed by pride, ego, fear, and defensiveness. These get cloaked in anger, retaliation, gossip, and vengefulness. The best way to combat darkness is with LIGHT, – My Light. Picture yourself cloaked in shining garments, radiant with peace. You can be an element of Grace and Light in the world. Even if it’s only in one corner today, you can light up a room. I will equip you as you ask for help. Let Goodness triumph over darkness today; do not fear, for I will give you safety and reassurance.

Saving Grace

Saving Grace: these are words to meditate on. My Grace saves. My Grace has enough supply to rescue you and those you care about from any of their troubles. Your job is not always to fix  problems. Consider this: your job may be to call upon My Grace, or to direct others to do so. In My Grace there is enough wisdom, stamina, and peace for all. Do you know My Grace? Have you sought it out lately? I love to give it freely; you merely have to step up to the plate and ask for it to be served. I am a generous God. People mistakenly think I am stingy when it comes to helping when they are in the middle of their troubles, but this is completely wrong. It is in times of trouble that My Grace pours out in gallons, washing over the whole scene and bathing those in need.
