If I Close a Door

If you are challenged by disappointment, hurt feelings or discouragement, turn to Me for comfort. Do not retaliate when these things happen. If I close a door or you encounter hardships, consider that I may merely be nudging you in a new direction. I never place hurt in someone’s life, though. Don’t attribute things that cause pain to being derived by Me because I am not that kind of God. Instead, recognize that I accompany all when they are hurting or in trouble. I’ll walk with you, picking up the pieces and providing healing into a new design for good. Work on not taking offense. Instead, take steps of trust, knowing that you are ever so loved.

Let’s Trade Seats

I see when you are perching yourself on a pedestal of righteousness. I know that stems from you feeling hurt or wronged. It takes so much negative energy to be constantly judging other’s behaviors or intentions, or feeling bitter, angry, and annoyed by their actions. How about this: let’s trade seats for a while. Let Me be the judge of others as you climb down from that high seat, allowing Me to be the one carrying the burden of criticism. Only I can see the truth. Find that in walking humbly you can also experience greater peace. Let Me relieve you of unnecessary burdens and rid you of residual hurt so you can walk freely.

Follow My Safe Lead

I am reaching for you, – standing right here, – facing you. Open your eyes and heart to greet Me. Say yes to My invitation allowing Me to console you like no other can. I know you’ve been hurt. I can’t protect you from all pain caused by others in this world, but I can lift you out of it. It may require walking away from hurtful situations. When it is time, I will make the move and signal your way through. Follow My lead. Hold on to the fact that I will never leave your side. With Me,  you are safe again.

You Can Do Hard Things

I know you are hurting. I see you sending up signals and flares, feeling stranded and a little abandoned. You are not lost, though, My child. I know exactly where you are, and I am working behind the scenes toward the recovery that is ahead for you. It may mean enduring pain for a while longer, but you can handle some discomfort. I will give you the strength to manage each day, one day at a time. Asking “why” and feeling discouraged won’t help, even though this is a normal reaction. Come to Me and let Me help you bear with this until it passes. You can do hard things with Me at your side and within your spirit.

Walk Away From The Negativity

Like water rolling off a duck’s back, let those petty annoyances drip off. Shake your feathers and watch those insensitive and unkind words flick off easily. You are deserving of love and don’t need those negative memories gnawing at you. Look for the Good and presume positive intentions even if other’s actions were offensive, condescending, or hurtful. You can be bigger than that and walk away from the negativity. Nothing needs to erode your Peace, which you’ll find in looking to Me and living in My ways. Ask Me for help to clear your mind and find Me readily with you, refreshing your perspective and outlook.

Sadness Inside

I detect that note of sadness inside, – well-hidden from others’ observation. You can come to Me in that vulnerable space because I get it. I know exactly what you are missing, grieving, and disappointed by. It’s okay to be sad like that. I never see it as a sign of weakness. Allow Me to console you, just being near and sitting in that pool of grief together. Soon I will help you rise above it all. There is a season for everything, and joy will come in the morning. 

You Can Get Better

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. 

Slights and Offenses

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.

In Sickness and In Health

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 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.
