Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to quiet that busy, fretful head of yours. Try this tactic: tell yourself repeatedly “Nothing matters as much as I think it does.” The only thing that truly matters is using critical thinking to determine “What is the best way to be loving in this scenario?” If you see another person tangled in distress and can recognize the ropes that threaten to trip them up, help untie those knots by encouraging them to trust in Me. If you find yourself wrapped in a tangled rope of worry over something I didn’t place in your path for you to address, step aside and let Me handle it instead. I will give you strength and insight to know how to handle each situation you encounter.

It is important to fill your head with messages that edify, not destroy. Be cautious with how you invest your thought time. There is so much out there in social media and on screen that feeds dark thoughts with distressing images that are hard to let go of. Pick something else to read or watch today; something that will brighten your mood or help you grow in compassion and insight to others. This is a kindness you can do for yourself and something that will have My hand in it. Think on things that are pure and lovely today, and see how this lifts your spirit.

Whenever a new year arises, people tend to reflect on where they’ve been and possibilities for where they are going. Be cautious about getting caught up in old ruts where your tires spin in the mud of regret. Also watch out for fear-based projections about what is around the corner, anticipating that things won’t turn out as you would like or will be too hard to manage. Neither of these things are true. I am a loving God with hopeful plans in store for you. I’ll carry you through hard times and open doors for Good things to arrive in your life and in the lives of those you care about. Choose to concentrate on living fully present in today, and hand Me your past and future. This is how you build new habits of peace of mind.

‘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.
