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.
You are Mine – always, – in sickness and in health. Forevermore tied. I’m devoted to helping you recover from past hurts as well as working through present worries or ailments. I see your good intentions and I know your fears and roadblocks. You can entrust Me with both your history and your present concerns. Feel Me tugging at your heart, calling you to compassionate awareness of your need for wellness. I make precious gemstones out of rocks over time when you give way to My purpose and healing intentions for your life.
I know the way. I know the reasons. Walk in trust, knowing that I am leading you right where I most need you to go. You will enter every event and circumstance well-equipped to do My work. Relax into the experience, listening and speaking as My Spirit prompts you to. I picked you for these tasks and encounters because I sustain all life. You are created for My Good. I interweave people, needs, skills, blessings, hurts, and healing by attending to each person with great love and mastery over all things. Allow Me to do a good work in You and through you today. Don’t forget that I’m listening and attending to each of your own deep and personal needs, too. I hear the unspoken pieces and am responding to all things in due time.
Allow the draw of our relationship to keep you seated with Me long enough to gain your fill of truth and direction. I ask you to hold your tongue today and practice the art of listening before speaking. Observe those who are hurting and silently, secretly, offer them up to My healing hands. Take the pressure off of yourself trying to come up with the right words. Instead, stay true to the heart behind the tongue. Try this simple technique and see how My Love -Light grows through quietly attentive interactions. Be My Light on the world using your heart instead of your words.
You know how to show love, but other’s don’t always get it. I see you working hard to maintain connections in relationships that are bruised. Sometimes it’s okay to pull back temporarily and stay out of situations when people are draining you. Come to Me for replenishment. I will calm your frazzled nerves and soothe your aching heart. I will show you the way to love again. With My help and Grace you will be able to rise above past offenses and be forgiving and accepting of others even when they “don’t get it”. I do. I see your Good intentions and will bless your path because of it.
I’m a tender God. I’ve been with you your whole life! Look back and notice the times when things worked out, when good people came through for you, and when you felt truly loved and cared for. I lovingly pick up the broken pieces caused by hurt, stress, and worry. When darkness fights for control in your head, misguidedly convincing you that everything is falling apart or that you aren’t lovable, recognize it as a lie. Come to Me and feel My consoling Presence affirming your worth and the established plan for Goodness ahead. My love for you rises above all else.
Turn to Me, oh anxious one. Be not afraid. In the Light of My compassionate Presence, you can accomplish all things, be healed, and be strengthened for good works. I see what you are facing in the day ahead. You are ready for the tasks at hand. Don’t trip yourself up thinking it’s all up to you. Walk one step behind Me, allowing My lead to guide. Our love will rule as the better way.
Remember to love. In the midst of all your busy thoughts, rehashing the past or planning for the future, stop and notice your surroundings created by Me. Love the people you encounter today. Love the people you remember or think about. Whenever a situation- past, present, or future, – comes to mind, picture Grace-filled Love pouring over it. This reminder of My involvement can heal past tragedies and prepare you for future run-ins. You won’t feel afraid when you center yourself this way.
It’s OK to not be perfect. Repeat this to yourself often today. You are exactly the right fit for each task and situation I impose upon you. Take your whole self, – flaws and all, -with an inner confidence in My plan and your capacity to fulfill it. If any mistakes occur, acknowledge them without added guilt or shame and then move on. Even mistakes can be part of My design. You need to go easier on yourself, and this will help you go easier on others with enhanced capacity to forgive and love naturally. As you practice releasing unreachable standards and owning the fact that imperfection is okay with Me, you can laugh at yourself a little more and trust that I love ALL of you, even with quirks and flaws.
