‘Do not let your heart be discouraged’. Your emotions are real, and allowable. Difficult times will swell up now and then, and it’s reasonable and normal to feel things like distress, anxiety, sadness, or annoyance. By the phrase ‘do not let your heart be discouraged’, I am not saying don’t feel discouragement. Instead, I am guiding you to still acknowledge the truth of how you feel, but to also place it before Me to help you handle. I’m asking you to not let it rule your day or consume your thoughts. Instead, ‘let your heart be reassured’: I’m here, and I’m with you and for you, always.
You have true purpose in this world. I am navigating the boat through murky waters for you. Stay on board and see where all of this leads. I’m taking you to new places, but you need not be anxious. Release your tendency to try and map everything out. Take the ride one day at a time, trusting that your future is safely in My hands.
Being a ‘good human’ requires intentional effort. Choose to be fair, kind, and just today. Treat yourself and others with respect and dignity. “Take the high road”. You’ll find Me giving you a hand along the way, with guard rails in front of the risky places you could otherwise fall into if you’re not careful. Let Me be your Guide and Protector. I won’t let you fall.
You have dozens of days behind you. Your life experience has been full of drama, challenges, and diligence. In the midst of it all, I am and have been here all along. Turn to Me, your constant Companion, as you step into this day. Ask Me to share your view so that I can guide our activities, decisions, and actions. We are interwoven and your work can be congruous and in-line with Me. Find purpose in knowing and trusting this day’s co-led mission. Remember that we have a long history of doing things together.
You are so hard on yourself sometimes. I don’t judge you harshly, My beloved child. That part you must own and work to change. I call you to face your world-damaged heart, recognizing the inaccurate criticism blown out of proportion, and eliminate those hurtful and shaming ways you speak to yourself. Ask Me to help you reach in to be reassured and consoled. Love of self does not mean being selfish or egotistical. Rather, love of self is a call to recognize your Divine beauty; your inherently unique traits and attributes I wish to be confidently utilized and cherished. Choosing to love yourself honors Me. You are sacred and valued.
You know ‘right’ from ‘wrong’. I’ve instilled intuition to help you make good judgment, so live your life accordingly. Show others you value them. I will take care of you. Put Me in charge today and rest knowing that I am at the helm. It’s not all up to you and I can lead you on the right path.
Do you trust Me to be caring for you? Because I AM, quietly and gently – sometimes imperceptibly by you, but ever-so-present, always. Close your eyes for a moment and let Me remind you of My great Love for you. I send forgiveness, strength, courage, love, and ways for you to find peace. Go gently into this day with less anxiety as you heighten awareness of My support to you. Pay attention to My call asking you to be My Presence in the world. You are capable of this; I will equip you with whatever you need. Above, underneath, and through it all is My love and caring for you. You will see and sense that today. Look for it.
You’ve got plenty going on right now. Whether it’s slowing down or ramping up, let Me be the one who leads the pace. You’ve heard “timing is everything”, and “God-speed”. Let these phrases boost you with enough energy or patience to do what’s needed just for today. Really try staying in the present, trusting My timing and the speed of activity required of you. You don’t have to be intimidated when things are moving fast, nor do you have to feel agonized when life moves too slow for your taste. This is the perfect time to breathe in trust and exhale confidence in Me. Together with Me, it will all be just right.
Allow Me to calm you. Take these peaceful, quiet moments when you can get them and appreciate how I call you to rest. Sometimes what you need most is to stop and be silent. Listen to small things – clocks ticking, birds calling, washing machine humming, – whatever is going on. Just take notice and appreciate how calming this can be. Then, remind yourself of one of my most important phrases: “Be still, and know that I am God.” I am YOUR God, lovingly present and bringing good out of every circumstance. As you breathe in this truth, exhale doubt and fear.
Stay true to Me and to what you are passionate about. After all, I instill inspiring thoughts, and I open doors. As long as it is Me you are ultimately serving, your efforts will be fruitful. Be of good cheer even in the mundane tasks of today, for the reward later will show you efforts were worthy of time, devotion, and attention.
