You know that I am with you. How blessed you are to “get that” already. Now, I call you to next steps in your faith development: trusting Me daily. Lean back into Me as the One who knows you intimately. Confront your self-doubt and slay it when it tries to take over. I love you just as you are. I have control over every aspect in My awesome design. This includes the activities of today as well as future plans. Trust that you are right where you need to be, – ready and capable for everything you encounter. I need you right where you are. Calm your soul with this truth.
I have brought you through much already. Look back and realize the ways I heal and mend. Acknowledge My sovereign ways over your life, reminding yourself that I never intend to inflict harm. Let Me take you to next steps and places you haven’t even dreamt of. When you open yourself to My grand possibilities, trusting that I am with you, you can take brave steps again. I won’t let you down. You don’t have to let yourself down, either. Let Me reveal the Good life to you. You can be whole again! There is so much in store for you. Believe this!
Remain obedient to the call I place on your heart. Listen for Me daily as I gently guide you with each small task. You don’t have to see the full picture yet. It’s okay to do something small today. Each little piece adds up over time, and no act of kindness or intentional task completed in My name goes unnoticed by Me. Do these things in a Spirit of Love and willingness. Your servant heart is glorious to behold and gives My hope to others.
You are enough (even more than!). Get it into your head, and relax in this truth. Be comfortable in your own skin, because I am an amazing God and you are My amazing child. I am so proud of who you are: My creation, – oh-so-loved. Walk peaceably in this day, knowing you can have inner confidence based on My Light within you. Nothing has to ruffle your feathers. Approach each situation with a knowing and loving eye when you use My eyes that see and My ears that hear. Spread My love and joy to the world.
You are content and full. Sit with that image, acknowledging that I supply for all your needs…no more and no less than what is needed. Occasionally I send over-abundance. Perhaps you feel the opposite is true, worrying that you won’t have or be enough to get by. Fear is lying when it tells you that. I will never, – I repeat! – NEVER abandon or forsake you, – especially in your time of need. Take stock in My adequate provision for the next 24 hours. You can and will get by. I’ll supply everything that’s needed, one day at a time.
You are special to Me. I am so pleased with you! You are very hard on yourself and this breaks My heart. Don’t fall into the trap of needless anxiety or unwarranted shame. I call you to a life that THRIVES! Abundant life, filled with Goodness. Face your days with eyes seeking and anticipating My Goodness. This perspective is critical to your capacity to receive. Thwart the tendency to worry or over-plan for potential disaster. Smash those worries with a rock of confidence in My powerful plan for Goodness. Be bold and purposeful on this path.
I will bless you in the waiting. I will give you a vision for how things will work out eventually. You can trust Me with the plan and outcomes even if you don’t see it yet. I won’t leave you hanging. I’ts OK to be vulnerable around others now and then. They can relate to you when you let down your guard. With Me you have nothing to fear. Learn and practice being okay with not having everything figured out all the time. My Grace is enough to fix that.
Linger with Me for a while. Don’t rush off into your day without our time together because you need My love and encouragement to help settle down your anxious heart. All of your worries calm down when you stop long enough to realize I am your God. I am taking care of all your needs. There’s not a single thing I won’t address with and for you. When mini-panics start to arise, hand the details over to Me. Remember I’ve placed you wherever you are today for a purpose and a plan. Muster up confidence knowing I need you right where you are. I’m supplying everything that is essential to get things accomplished lovingly and thoroughly.
Don’t beat yourself up, succumbing to self-doubt. When you show up for the work, your presence itself speaks volumes to others, showing that you care. You have a heart for what I have called you to do and will find yourself capable of handling whatever I place before you. Others are hungry for your kind of caring and commitment. You can do it! Let My Grace reassure you that you are already doing what I’ve guided you to do. Take even better care of yourself as you build your confidence up, thereby becoming better equipped to attend well to others.
There are small, anxious battles waging for control in your mind. I can and will help you focus and conquer them. My intent for you is to have full peace of mind. You can get there moment by moment. It takes an act of will to place all of your cares and fears before Me. Trust that I am working things out for your good. I am a loving God, capable of all things. Nothing is too big for Me. Breathe in My Grace filling you with confidence and calm. Peace I leave with you, given freely.
