Peace and Joy Can Go Together

I am working things out for you, kneading out the sore spots. Trust Me, and look for ways I send others to help. Being “contemplative” does not have to mean being sorrowful all the time. Peace and joy can go together, and are actually a very nice pairing available even when you’ve been hurting. Practice detaching from your surroundings and moving into a peaceful and observant mode, allowing the stream of interaction and movement to flow in whatever direction I guide. You will remain intact during the process, I assure you.

When You Feel Depleted

When you feel depleted, come to Me to receive the TLC you need. I will feed you and nourish your soul. As a gentle God, I will never turn you away. In fact, I’ve been waiting for you to show up, – watching your circumstances and helping in ways unbeknownst to you already. I treasure you; you are Mine! And as such, I will provide for your needs and sustain you all your days. Come to My table and find a banquet ready and waiting.

When Others Let You Down

When others let you down or don’t give efforts to share the load the way you’d like, turn to Me. Ask for My help with shrugging off the offense. Consider that I will be your partner in getting things done, even if others aren’t helping the way you’d prefer. I can make any load more bearable. I may even introduce a new helper to involve. Release your anger and criticism, and open yourself to My change in plans. I love you and will always be there for you, reliably helping even when others disappoint.

Ushering You Away From Harm

You can trust Me. I never have back-handed motives or actions. I am a loving God who only operates in safe, kind, and caring ways. No matter who has treated you poorly in the past or how you’ve been hurt, I’m not like that. Picture Me standing by your side if memories of those encounters are clouding your mind. Rewrite that scenario by envisioning Me shielding you with a protective arm, ushering you away from the harm. Turn to Me and cling to the folds of My garments, for I am with you. Ask for My help to heal old wounds and release their grip on you. I am by your side, wishing you wellness and peace.

Let Your Heart Be Reassured

‘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.

Dealing With Pain

You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.

Remember Me Today

Remember Me today. Like an old friend, a comforting song, a favorite article of clothing, recall how I soothe you. Put Me on. Listen to the music of your heart. Trust that I am with you, – daily, hourly, – pleasantly accompanying you. As I sit by your side with each task you attend to, remember Me and call upon Me when you need a hand thinking things through. I’m here for you. 

With You In All Of It

You know the sting of pain and hurt. You’ve seen deep disappointment and frustration, especially lately. I am with you in all of it, but that can sound like a hollow phrase. Listen to it again, picturing Me right in front of you and speaking these words with the truest compassion and most sincere commitment possible on My Glorious face: “I am with you in ALL of it!” Not just in bits and pieces or here and there. I was with you back then, I’m with you now, and I”ll be with you when the next thing comes along. Look to Me for help and comfort. I am already there, offering My hand for your peace of mind. 

I Pour Out Reassurance

Stop all the “doing” for a minute and quiet your thoughts. Allow a hush to settle around you. Release your surface thoughts to Me and then, eventually, your deepest cares. This is not “magical thinking”; it’s allowing Your Creator, – who knows you more intimately than anyone else on earth,- to gently relieve you of your burdens. I pour out reassurance and guidance for you. Knowing you, I understand your needs with more clarity than even you yourself can perceive. Abide in Me today, trusting My power to heal your life. Follow in line with what I value for you by being selective with your thoughts and how you choose to expend your energy. 

Don’t Be Afraid of the Conversations

You don’t have to fear. Don’t be afraid of the conversations and interactions ahead of you. I have forgiven you and your past and I have plans in store for you today as well as into the future. They are still big plans! Wait for it. Know that I’ll be with you and the others today as you talk. I need you there. I put you together with them there for a reason. It’s not all up to you to decide or decipher. Ask them about their interests. See their heart for the work and trust Me in whatever follows. My Goodness is real and present, and will override any challenges. I’ll be there; don’t forget that.
