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.
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.
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.
I call you to the quiet. Sit still; hear and absorb tiny sounds all around you. Empty your head of its constant throng of thoughts. Take in the quiet, intended for you. Rest like this allows you to hear Me. I am yours. Hand over all your stress to Me. Pay attention to your body with all its fatigue, pain, and tension. I want to mend the broken parts of your Spirit. The parts that are distrusting, cynical, anxious, sad. In the quiet I wash My Grace all over you, finding its way into each crevice or dark surface. Be filled and covered in Light. Know that I have not abandoned you, – ever! I am aware of your suffering. While your painful experiences may not always disappear, know that I am with you and I am at work to make Good arise out of difficulty.
My face really does shine upon you. Stop doubting that. If only you could see how much you truly radiate! Perhaps then you could ease up on the self-reproach. Your view of yourself gets so distorted. Small past errors or unhealthy choices get blown way out of proportion. With My help, learn to shrug off the negative self-talk. If you need to make amends, do so now and get it over with. There’s no need to live weighed down by exaggerated thoughts or past mistakes. Let’s move on, My beloved, basking in Light.
Don’t worry so much about the illness, fatigue, or aches of your body today. I am aware of them, and of your every need. These are not “dry bones”. I fill the marrow of your body with an intention that LIFE occurs. I give you life and breath for purposes that you may not yet see. For now, be grateful for your body, even with its flaws, aches, and pains. Move about your day reassured of My help with an ease that says, “I am capable, calm, and strong enough to handle all that comes my way.” Some days will be light and easy; others make you turn to Me for help bearing and enduring the strain. I will not let you down. Compassionately, I’ll be with you every step, working to mend and heal mind, body, and soul.
I am at work in your life, healing and evolving your body and mind. I have to move slowly, though, allowing you the time needed for building your confidence in and through Me. It’s not that I’m not capable of accomplishing things more quickly. Even though I am omnipotent, it’s you who sets the pace for our relationship. Once you practice trust and learn to release your cares to Me daily, you’ll see how quickly and constantly I am at work. Be mindful of allowing it to be My work that happens. Be open to how I want to utilize your life to accomplish My divine purposes. Abide in Me as I abide in you.
In My Presence you are made well. Instead of scrutinizing your every discomfort, brush away the negativity. Fend it off with loving self-talk and reassuring reminders that in God’s image you are A-OK and you can get better. You are not too broken. Make a conscious choice to say “God is with me, so I can get through anything.” Physical discomfort, emotional pain, and spiritual distress are all subject to My Healing. Turn to Me to be made well.
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.
You are more loved than you may realize. The tiniest slights and offenses that happen in daily life can skew your recognition of how likable you are. Don’t let these tiny, false claims get to you. Any thought that you are somehow unworthy of attention is a lie. I am the One who knows you and loves you. Ultimately, this is all that matters- but I know how you long to be close to others and not excluded or misjudged. For now, let Me in to soothe the hurt and provide reassurance. Confidence will return as you trust Me with your relationships. Ask Me to help remove any defensiveness from you so that others can draw closer. It’s OK to be vulnerable now and then.
