You can find comfort in Me. Let Me help stop the racing thoughts of details to finalize, or of worries about what impression you made. I will teach you to encourage yourself. Turn inward for a change. Take comfort and strength deep within as provided by Me to help you find the truth: I am your God and I am right here! I am in charge, leading you to a very important place. You have what it takes, and I will always equip you, remaining housed within your Spirit. Be comforted, comforting, and comfortable as you rest in the folds of My cloth.
Taking one day, one hour, one project at a time will help you keep calm. I have the design, and you are My instrument. I will play you, beautifully, in accordance with My rhythm. You can rest easily knowing I am in charge, not you. You don’t have to take things personally. Calm yourself through being one with Me, weaving in and around others spreading Joy and sensitivity. Make real connections. Know you are Good, and exactly where I need you to be. My design is at work, intricately, piece by piece. I do this because I love you! ALL of you: your needs as well as your talents. Take My Right Hand; – I will not let you fall.
Let Me be your ALL. Let Me help heal that which is broken, and guide you to the green pastures of peace and contentment. Allow Me to help you love yourself as you are, and find the goodness that is present and perfect within My design. I never call you to hate or berate yourself. I ask you to receive and see My love for you, and once you can do that, to share this with others. Trust the truth of My Light within. You are where you are and WHO you are for a reason: My reasons, My purpose.
Why do you question Me so? Why do you cling to the doubt that binds you unnecessarily in insecurity and self-sabotage? My love for you is more than real: it is unshakable. My love completely covers every aspect of your life. Nothing, – no thought, action, intention, or decision, – goes unnoticed or unattended to by Me. Why do you hold on to a distorted sense that you are “not enough” yet? Why do you believe that your thoughts are not pure enough for My viewing? Bring EVERYTHING to Me: all that you long for or fret over; all you desire, or are ashamed of. I will help you sort it out, and I will still love you, – always. Be reassured by that. Turn to Me and open yourself to trusting our relationship. You are forgiven, fully. I love you!
You have said yes to all I have asked. I am so pleased with your heart and your good intentions. I am laying everything out for you: the people to connect to and interact with, the vision for how things can be. Continue to answer My call with willingness. Remember, though, it doesn’t all rest on you. Others will see your desire to serve, and they will want to jump on board. Look to the East, from where your help will come. I am the Shepherd, in charge of the flock, so you can stop fretting. I will provide all you need.
Look to Me to find rest and direction. The joy is already in you, ready to spring forth. You’ve been bringing joy to others, but I think you’ve forgotten that. I am so pleased with you, and eager for the days and weeks ahead where you will celebrate a new beginning: doing things you love, with I in you and you in Me. Be ready to shine, eager to serve, and excited to meet and interact with people. Listen for My message, and take My lead when the way that’s been paved for you opens up. You will be nurtured and blessed simply by your willingness to be a part of things. Remember that I am in charge, and you need not be anxious.
My Light is absolutely dazzling all around you. No matter how dark the world may seem, or how monumental or oppressive the tasks before you may feel or appear, My ways are able to overcome all challenges. Like fresh, new-fallen snow lit by winter sunlight outside, it is almost too bright and blinding for you to take in fully. You can get a glimpse of it, though! Be amazed by My brilliant love and power in your life. Absorb this word: POSSIBLE. All things are possible with Me. Let My Light remind you that you are not alone, and you are able to bear much when we work together in harmony. I am bigger than any challenge or obstacle you face. Turn your face to the Light, and absorb My strength intended to help you today.
I am your Lord and Shepherd. I love that analogy of Me, but people tend to picture a “cleaned up” image instead of My original design. Shepherds were weathered, with imperfect skin, unfashionable clothes, and sore muscles. They not only endured storms, but had to live in the middle of them. Rough terrain was familiar to the Shepherd, as was getting by with limited shelter or resources. Why would I choose such a difficult life? Because of My love for the sheep. I choose to be your ultimate Protector and Guide. I have a destination in mind for you, and am accompanying you the entire way. Difficulties don’t scare me off. I face off anything that tries to hurt you. Trust the curve of My staff, pulling you in the best direction. Follow Me eagerly, knowing I am your safety and we are in this together.
Oh, My worried and anxious one. Can’t you see that you are EXTRAORDINARY? You are gracious, encouraging, welcoming, compassionate, smart, and LIKEABLE. Ohhh, so likeable! You are just what others need around them. Leap in to this day. I will overwhelm you with My good plans. Don’t be like Jeremiah, doubting your capabilities. I need your strong Spirit shining through. You won’t have to do it all – just be present to others and be an encourager, pointing out what is going right. Help lead to new paths with enthusiasm. The fatigue and stress of the past does not have to be your truth today. My way is Light. My way is Hope. My way is TRUTH.
It is time for you to just go. Go where I am leading you today, keeping focus on your gifts and all you have to offer others. Don’t stay back, reluctant or unsure of yourself. You don’t have to hesitate or stay stuck in indecisiveness. Place yourself with confidence at My altar, and see that I have prepared you well for where you are needed to be today. Be excited about this! Allow yourself to feel positive without worrying about everybody else’s reaction. Place them and the situation in My hands; let Me take care of the outcomes.
