Smooth Away the Tension

The world is full of busy-ness. I call you to a place of calm and stillness so you can sense how near I am. While things around you clamor for your attention, I sit and wait patiently for you to turn your gaze to Me. Seek My compassionate and reassuring eyes, waiting to receive you with total love. Allow Me to smooth away the wrinkles and tension of the world, helping you to stop feeling so bad about yourself all the time. Let’s wash those things away, taking responsibility for whatever interactions need to happen to repair hurts, seek forgiveness, or release your self-blame. Breathe deeply, knowing I make all things new. Turn to Me and become repaired, whole, and freed.

Push Dark Ways Aside

It’s important to surround yourself with positive influences and good people. In other words, choose a life that pushes dark ways aside. The world likes to use  cynicism and make fun of others, trying to diminish their worth in order to build other’s inflated egos. My ways say to choose the opposite: find value in all and build others up. False criticism cannot penetrate one’s true goodness that has been created and designed by Me. Walk away when you encounter darkness and pray for Light to penetrate and illuminate instead. With this mindset, Grace can filter over you and any situation that calls for healing. Dark worlds may appear imposing, but Light is far more powerful.

Let’s Trade Seats

I see when you are perching yourself on a pedestal of righteousness. I know that stems from you feeling hurt or wronged. It takes so much negative energy to be constantly judging other’s behaviors or intentions, or feeling bitter, angry, and annoyed by their actions. How about this: let’s trade seats for a while. Let Me be the judge of others as you climb down from that high seat, allowing Me to be the one carrying the burden of criticism. Only I can see the truth. Find that in walking humbly you can also experience greater peace. Let Me relieve you of unnecessary burdens and rid you of residual hurt so you can walk freely.

Heal Hurtful Self-Talk

Lay those burdens aside. Come to Me in all your fragility, presenting those agonizing thoughts and experiences you keep re-hashing over and over again in your head. Allow Me to warm you from your core, like hands hovering near an open fire. Let the warmth of My reassuring love heal that hurtful self-talk, turning those lies to ashes. You are loved, purely and simply, just as you are. The past mistakes are already forgiven. There’s no benefit to clinging to them anymore.  Let the flame of My healing Spirit take over, renewing you for Good. It’s time to let that past go.

Melt Away Old Habits

Like the flickering light of a candle, My Spirit is moving in you. I instill warmth and activity that is constantly at work, melting the effects of past hardships away. I give off Light with a pleasing aroma while dancing freely. Open yourself to what I need to melt down: old habits of worry, former offenses and hurts, rigid ways you’ve used to self-protect. Let Me soften them and burn away anything that gets in the way of My Light trying to shine through you. Come closer to the flame, excited about how I am reshaping you from the inside out.

You Can Do Hard Things

I know you are hurting. I see you sending up signals and flares, feeling stranded and a little abandoned. You are not lost, though, My child. I know exactly where you are, and I am working behind the scenes toward the recovery that is ahead for you. It may mean enduring pain for a while longer, but you can handle some discomfort. I will give you the strength to manage each day, one day at a time. Asking “why” and feeling discouraged won’t help, even though this is a normal reaction. Come to Me and let Me help you bear with this until it passes. You can do hard things with Me at your side and within your spirit.

All Feelings Allowed

Decide to allow ALL of your feelings today. Acknowledge them, examine them, then place them in My all-capable hands. Try to not judge your feelings as “good” or “bad”. Let Me be the judge of your heart and emotions. I am tender, accepting, wise, and compassionate. Nothing you feel goes unnoticed by Me or is seen as “unacceptable” in My eyes. What I long for is to have you be genuine with Me, plain and simple. I’ll help take the pressure off and give you perspective on how to handle whatever is stirred up inside. Look to Me as your confidante today, and be willing to release all of your cares so they don’t become stumbling blocks on the road to wellness.

When Things Go Wrong

It’s so easy to be upset when things seem to be “going wrong”. Petty annoyances, body aches and pains, interruptions to your plans, household equipment breaking down. For perspective, though, take note that things are only truly wrong if dark forces are put in charge,  like when people are enticed to take part in evil deeds or when dishonesty creates a separate world of activity, luring people away from My Light. Put your cares in this perspective. Consider if what you are worried about is a small matter that will pass or a dark matter that can bring you to a dangerous place. Lift all your cares to Me and ask Me to be put in charge. This will help combat true darkness. Look to Me; I can heal any circumstance.

Toss Anxiety Aside

I am in this day, already with you. Toss anxiety aside. Enjoy the peace of mind I give to you when you exercise trust in My companionship. Life is easier once you recognize what a with-God life means. I equip, love, heal and forgive. I renew you. I call to you constantly with reassurance and invitation. Come to Me! Receive my gift of Peace, even the middle of troubling times.
