What Hope Looks Like

Come to Me in the quiet of the morning and be fed small bites of comfort. I am tenderly taking care of you, healing your hurts and wounds. Don’t get stuck in a pity party for yourself. That doesn’t help, and it fogs up the window showing how clearly I am working in your life. Instead, go to the window and look out. Find the dawn again, with hope on the horizon because I am with you. I sustain; I heal. I need you to demonstrate what hope looks like to others. Hope assures you that I will bring Good out of every circumstance and trial.

Meanwhile, Hang In There

Hang in there, – we’re not through yet. There is more introspection to be had. You are getting closer to seeing with My eyes. I want your whole, tender heart to be ALL MINE. Look to Me with love today. Love Me, love My world. Stay close to Me when you are facing new things. I am familiar to you and can help settle you down. Eventually, I take you through all sorts of newness and change. You don’t have to view it as too hard or grumble about it, because it’s all going to lead to something majestic one day. Meanwhile, hang in there with Me.

Carving a Way Through

Gradually you are coming into awareness of the life I have planned for you. Even with life’s setbacks, – which sometimes seem like an unending onslaught of problems, – I am with you, carving a way through. There is a bend in the road up ahead. Together, let’s walk on it. Let Me sling My arm over your shoulder as we approach it cheerfully. With Me, all things are possible…even living joyfully.

Worry is Senseless

I take care of your every need. Every bite of food, each reassuring glance, every ounce of hope instilled is all part of My handiwork. In fact, when you think of it, all worry is truly senseless.  Try this for a day: pay attention to all that I provide – adequate food, clothing, a home, transportation, an able body, a bright mind. You will have everything you need to be exactly where you are supposed to be. I’ll help you show up and I’ll even help you finish the work. You are never alone. 

Vulnerable Inside; Don’t Lose Hope

I am the Great Healer. Trust Me with your deepest wounds – the kind that tear at your heart and make you feel so vulnerable inside. I see all things and do understand your pain – even though you doubt My love and compassion for you because this wound still exists. Even in your darkest hour, I am with you. I will not let you fall into a pit of despair. Take that hurt and pain plus any surrounding emotion (shame, fear, anger, rage, sadness – whatever the case may be) and lay it all at My feet. Don’t leave any parts to cling to because that would only serve to continue to separate yourself from Me. I know that placing it at My feet doesn’t cause all pain to disperse immediately. Still, by doing so you open yourself to receive My love for you today, in the deepest spots. Do not lose hope. 

Leave Doubt By the Wayside

I know who you are and how you work, – even better than you know yourself. You don’t have to worry about what other people are thinking anymore. As you are receptive to My will and My plans, you will find calm and confidence. When you choose an attitude of acceptance and gratitude, your eyes will be opened and your ears will be able to hear. Be open to possibility and to extending your hands as the day dawns. I will be with you every step of the way. Let’s celebrate life together. You can leave doubt by the wayside. 

Finding Motivation

I see your struggle with finding motivation. I have the power to ignite you. Ask Me to fill you with a desire to fulfill the purpose and plans I have in store for you. Look for My Spirit alive in you, – able to equip you with a zest for living and a desire to get going today. Tell Me that you choose to live well for Me. I love hearing that! I will support and uplift you each time you choose to say YES. 

The Great Healer

I am the Great Healer touching every wound and soreness. You are dealing with illness and stress; parts of your body are struggling. Discomfort and worry are vying for time in your head. Sit still. Breathe. Really, – breathe deep and relax, clearing your mind out and being present in front of Me. I am watching over you. Whatever needs to be revealed will be shown in due time. Worrying about it won’t help; trusting Me will! I attend to all things – even your uncomfortable symptoms. Picture Me as physician, listening and attending to your description of whatever concerns you. Do what you can to be healthy and well, and let Me take care of the rest. 

Let’s Head Into the Unknown

Your mind is foggy and weighed down. Picture Me instead. Focus your thoughts on an image of Me standing lovingly in front of you, inviting you in to the day as I put my arm around your shoulder and guide you through each doorway.  You have no idea what’s in store, but I do. Let’s head into the unknown together with peaceful and even joyful anticipation of all we will encounter. 

Mapped Out a Course

I have mapped out a course uniquely designed for you. It’s a topographical map, with bumps and ridges as well as patches of smooth green. I am with you in all of it -climbing the heights and crossing the valleys. Try viewing it all as beautiful, not arduous or “too hard”. As your personal trail Guide, we will take steps in a doable pace. Follow Me with whole-hearted trust and inquisitiveness for what is around the corner. Envision Goodness unfolding all the way.
