Do as I ask of you – LOVE. Love fully and completely, without judgement and with compassion and forgiveness even when others fall short of your expectations. This is no small task for your human heart, but I will equip you. I know it sounds hard, but I will help. Turn to Me with petty annoyances. Release them into My care and respond to others with love regardless of whether or not it is “earned”. Find Grace in this action today: love as you are loved.
You are a Light unto others. Don’t recede into darkness or separate yourself because of past hurts. Your gift is inclusion, and reaching out to others who cannot always reach back or aren’t good at going beyond the awkwardness of past mistakes. If I have taught you nothing else, it is how to stand strong and move forward even in uncomfortable situations. I need you to hear Me calling you even deeper on this road, reaching into your soul. You have a rich, meaningful purpose here. You’ve felt excluded, yet you weren’t. Yours is the gift of leadership, inclusion, purpose, and compassion. I will bless the ways you choose to be welcoming and outgoing. Let My waves of Grace and Glory wash over you now. Rest trustingly cradled in My arms as I renew you and restore your broken Spirit. I am big enough to do just that!
You are MINE, – constantly and intensely. I love you with a fervor and devotion that cannot be shaken or stripped from you. No circumstance tears Me away from you. Find Me in your heart, – in that still, small voice of reassurance. Even if others are mean, exclusive, or inconsiderate, you are met by Me with tender love and acceptance. I make you whole again, every day. Let My Grace wash this truth over you today, everywhere you go. Be My voice of peace and comfort.
Guard your heart against resentment. Be set free by My Grace alone. You can release the hurt into My capable hands. I will address your need for healing as well as their need for more compassion. Make My world better today by walking with peaceful steps. Breath in My Nooma – My Spirit – trusting that I am capable and present. No good deed goes unnoticed by Me.
Move with a steady pace today. Try not to rush. Hurried living causes undue stress and anxiety, but I call you to be calm. Let your pace reveal your trust in Me. My Presence isn’t going anywhere! I never leave your side. When you feel pressured to “hurry up!”, intentionally pause and acknowledge My sovereign power over your life- with awareness that I love you and have good plans in store. Although you may not see or recognize these plans yet, they are in motion. Pause, breathe, and calm yourself as I wash Grace over your existence like a soothing balm. A slower pace contributes to a peaceful mind.
Let the rain of Grace wash away your hurt and unhappiness. I will supply comforts to carry you along the way, too. Your life doesn’t have to be just about serving others. Don’t forget about attending to yourself; self-care is also essential. It’s important to soak up My peace intended for you, and refresh your soul. With My hand upon you, all can be made right. Let Me be a healing agent, attending to your needs. My Goodness rooted and established in you is meant to be well tended, and only then can it result in being My gift to all around you.
You can find comfort in Me. Let Me help stop the racing thoughts of details to finalize, or of worries about what impression you made. I will teach you to encourage yourself. Turn inward for a change. Take comfort and strength deep within as provided by Me to help you find the truth: I am your God and I am right here! I am in charge, leading you to a very important place. You have what it takes, and I will always equip you, remaining housed within your Spirit. Be comforted, comforting, and comfortable as you rest in the folds of My cloth.
Let Me speak to you. You carry a lot around inside of you: worries, responsibilities, lists, and occasionally, resentment. I hear it, and I know it all. You are always striving to be on top of things, or ahead of the game. I don’t mind you being busy, and using the talents I’ve given you well, but I don’t like it when you approach the day as a drudgery, – resenting each task before you. When you get like this, it’s time for a break. Sit down in front of Me, and let’s talk it out. I’m not a slave-driver. I will speak to your depleted heart, cushioning you with permission to find Grace in rest, or to prioritize things that will recover Joy in you. Balance is essential for a with-God life. Alone time helps. Break time does, too. Come to Me, and re-fill your soul.
You have been coming to Me daily and I am healing you. You don’t have to let others get you down. I don’t want you to play judge. My way is only of Love. Continue to work on your obedience to My ways, and in that you will find Peace. Know that by the gift of Grace, I have already forgiven you. I have gifted you with a completely different kind of power: the power to forgive others, too, and be released from dread and resentment. Shake the dust from your feet as you leave any hurtful places you need to move away from. Enter new doors shining like the sun, with dignity preserved and a sincere heart.
You are right where I need you to be. Stay strong and faithful. Any dark deeds of others will be overcome by My justice, so you don’t need to try to fix all that or figure it out on your own. Let it go. I am the way, the truth, and the life. I am the one in charge, and I have wonderful plans in store for you! Find your joy again in creating and in relationships so that your Spirit may be restored. Look to the heavens for where your help shall come. See? I do make all things new. My Grace can comfort you right where you are. Shine on! Bask in My warmth. Find and hold onto your Joy, even in this place.
