You fret about a lot of unnecessary things, picturing the worst-case scenario and bracing anxiously for the unknown. I call you to address this habit and intentionally change your thought process. When you catch yourself building worries, – STOP. Remind yourself that I am a loving God who is taking care of you and has Good plans in store. Remind yourself you are loved, loving, and capable, and then say, “I trust you Lord. Things will work out in the end. They have before and they will again, because you are caring for Me and my situation.” Things can, do, and will work out. Choose to believe, and allow yourself to live life with greater ease and happiness.

You are full of valid feelings and emotions, yet you are so hard on yourself, judging yourself too critically. I made you capable of being at peace. You are loving and loved! As you treat yourself with tenderness, the emotions that surface will be freed. With practice you can learn to offer yourself better self-acceptance. Once you do that, laughter will well up more freely. Let Me pour out My Grace on you, soothing the anxiety and washing away tension. Allow yourself to picture and live a life of happiness and ease. You can trust and believe that this is actually what I want for you.

The road recently has felt arduous. No matter how difficult, though, I have walked it with you. Side by side, I am carrying the roughest and most grueling parts. I know it’s hard to feel joy when the days are dark and the view appears bleak. It’s not, though. All I can do is reassure you that hope is alive and well, and there is reason to believe that lighter days are in store for you and for those you love. Cling to Me today. Hold tight, and don’t give in to discouragement. You deserve happiness and will find it yet again.

Open the shades and peer outside. Take note of the stillness and calm of the morning. Like a blanket of snow, I cover the earth, – hovering over plants and grass, and blossoms awaiting their time in the spring. But I’m not just “out there”. I am inside, – in each home and each person, – including you. I’m the One peering out, giving you eyes that see and moments to capture in your mind. Let your aim today be to notice things with curiosity and delight. See how this lifts your Spirit and your mood. Be elevated by what you take in as you discover all I’ve laid out before you.

You know not where the wind blows, but I do. You don’t need to worry about that. Stride into today letting just enough breeze carry you to the destination arranged for these next 24 hours only. Resist the tendency to think ahead, and just relax into the day, approaching it with curiosity and hopeful intrigue. You don’t need to map everything out in order to feel happy. See how not worrying about all the details and just letting life unfold enlivens your spirit.

I see your pain and hear your thoughts. Keep talking to Me. This is a two-way street. You don’t have to feel like the conversation is only one-sided, as if I am merely a God who listens but never responds. I ‘get’ you more than you realize; you don’t have to convince Me of your needs or intentions. I am aware of all the frailty and vulnerability you carry inwardly. Believe, Me, I am using your life for Goodness. I attend to every detail, loving you through all things. Hear My voice reassuring you that I am tenderly responding to your every need.

The world measures by temporal things: comforts, wants, and concerns, – things that fade or do not sustain you. Find contentment right where you are, with no more and no less than you need. Practice releasing temporary discomforts, thoughts, or worries and needs into My capable hands, right in this moment. Sit quietly, absorbing My Presence as the most real want and solid satisfaction. I supply all things in due time. This day matters and your wishes matter to Me. My purpose for you, when we are in harmony, is doable and satisfying. Be fulfilled and content, working in sync with Me today and trusting that I hear your heart’s desires. I know what is best for you. Even as you mourn and groan, know that I stand by your side, fully attentive to you. All things in due time, My love. I am here.
I need all of you. Not just a little bit like leftovers after a full meal has been dished out. I want your whole self committed to Me: your work time and your leisure. Part of giving Me your whole self means paying attention to how you find balance. I call you to intentionally set aside time for rest and for “play” because your busy head needs time off. Fill your cup with My reservoir of love by spending time with others you enjoy and who love you back. See what this can do to renew your heart.
Today, listen to My sincere call to you to slow your pace. I ask you to release these fervent efforts to always be on top of ‘tackling the next thing’. Instead, enjoy the present moment. I want to see you laugh out loud, or listen joyfully and open your eyes in wonder, amazement, and appreciation of My beauty placed in your surroundings. Morning light dancing through the leaves, bird song, the smell of green apples or fresh laundry. The work will still get done in due time. Hear Me beckoning you in small moments as you proceed through your day, and at the end, take time to recall our vivid encounters. Relax, enjoying My Peaceful Presence with you.
I know you try your very best every day. I see you striving diligently to work hard, be thoughtful, and be fruitful. Thank you, My child, for your dedicated service to Me and My kingdom. Some think all of this hard work only brings rewards in heaven. I tell you that you can expect good things as soon as in this day ahead – not because it was “earned”, but because I desire your happiness. Awareness of My constant Presence with you is all you need to find true peace. From there, happiness can fall into place. Find Me in your midst, joyfully awaiting your attention and companionship.
