You don’t have to travel or get away to experience joy and pleasure. Sometimes I provide that right in your own backyard. Accept My invitation to look around and find things to be grateful for. Simple things: color, light, and sounds can lift your spirit. Be reassured that I am all around you and attending to the things you have been stressing about so you can let go of them. Breathe in My fresh air and be refreshed by My gentle Presence.

Be open to seeing My color I placed all around you today. Look for it. Take time to notice and appreciate it. It’s My way of reaching you to reassure you that you are loved and My help is always present and available to you. You are never alone or unworthy. Brush that anxiety away by choosing to see color and hope in its place.

It’s A-okay to receive the blessings I give you without feeling guilty, unworthy, or “too privileged”. I enjoy giving abundantly and freely. You are good at not taking things for granted. I love how appreciative you are when My comforts bring delight to you and your household. Stay Steeped in gratitude and combine it with trusting your inherent worthiness. I don’t want to hold back or dole out in small increments. Let Me lavish you. That’s how My Love works in this life. I know that in return you will be generous with others, as well.

This day calls for reverence. To revere Me is to love, honor, and cherish our relationship. When you can acknowledge My sovereign might over all the earth, I can fill you with a sense of awe. Take delight in My Goodness and My reign over you, allowing Me to alleviate all that worry or fear of unworthiness. Let Me show the abundance of goods and opportunities ahead, helping you anticipate joy and gratitude for many blessings.

You don’t have to ‘do more’ to be loved. Wait here and listen to Me. You are deeply loved, right here and right now. Just breathe. Calm the busy thoughts distracting you and stressing you out. Sit here with Me for as long as it takes to settle down inside. I am here, and I am already fully pleased with you. There’s no need to be worried about impressing Me or others. I’d rather have your attentive companionship than 1,000 things accomplished. It’s okay to pause throughout your day, doing a bit less and just sitting, being appreciative as you connect to Me. Find joy resurfacing as you practice being aware of My Presence and finding balance between work, rest, and play.

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.
When you sit with Me, pushing the pause button on the rest of the day, it’s easier to experience how calming My Presence can be. Take the effort to pause, making the time to rest in My Light and comfort long enough to reassure you. No matter what lies ahead in this day or the next, you don’t have to live frantically driven by anxiety anymore. You can live cupped in the palm of My hands, steadying you and bracing you for the things you face. Gratitude will flow easily from this. No matter what, I’ll be there, giving exactly enough comfort and strength to accept and bear what is.
Think about Me today so that I can help you with whatever gives you anxiety or frustration. Make it part of your day to say hello to Me. Maybe mention, “Thank you”. Feel free to ask, “Did you notice____?” or “Would you like me to ____?” You fill in the blank in this intimate conversation with Me. Make ours a friendship you can’t wait to share each moment with or each decision made together. I can’t wait to spend the day with you! Let’s chat often, bringing awareness of My company and attentive love ever-so-alive for you.
Some days it’s hard to find direction with the way your mind spins with mini panic attacks: “Don’t forget ____!” “Make sure you ____!” It’s at these times when you most need Me but can hardly hear My voice over the din of to-do’s. Stop and recognize that I will equip you, and everything that is essential will get done. Thank Me for My companionship. Recognize your neediness and ask for My help. Only then can I step in to effectively provide you with peace. Remember Who is in charge and Who you belong to. Not everything will get done today, but that’s okay. I’ll still love you and help you see what matters most.
Why do you fill your head with anxious thoughts, problems to analyze, and preparing for things that haven’t even arisen as concerns yet? You spend so much energy planning ahead for things that never happen. Try practicing being alert in the present today instead. Notice the play of light outside your window. Feel the cool air coming inside. Take in each sound: clock ticking, birds calling, dog barking, the ceiling fan. Notice the variety of colors and textures as you move your eyes to slowly scan left to right. In quiet observance of things around you, you can take your mind off the “to-do list” and see the calming effect being with Me in the present can bring. Now, thank Me for the with-God life you have readily available at your fingertips. Go in peace.
