Your ability to connect to others comes from within, so use genuine conversation and reflect My Light of Love and Hope through your eyes and warm words. This comes naturally to you when you allow yourself to invest faith in My design. Believe in your inherent Goodness and trust your capacity to influence the world in positive ways today. No vision of that is too big or too small. Take full advantage of the opportunities I place before you to lovingly and brightly impact the world around you.
I know you are feeling daunted by the things I am asking of you. Whether it’s staying put and making the best of your present circumstances or moving forward and asking you to be open to change, I AM WITH YOU ALL THE WAY! I won’t drop the ball or make you figure things out blindly on your own. Look for ways I am working things out: random offers to help you, pinches of funding to make ends meet. Be Persistent. Things will work out in due time and in the end, even if they seem impossible right now. Look back for evidence of this, and be reminded of my Goodness coming through. I’ll put the pieces together with and for you.
Be off to a good start today, – relaxed and optimistic. Hold onto this frame of mind. You can live with a hopeful outlook because I have already deemed your life holy and beloved, with Good plans in store. Don’t let any little trip-hazards take away that hopeful view. We’re in this whole life together, so go enjoy the day with all My surprises in store beckoning you to rejoice and be glad in it.
I know you. I see you questioning your credibility and your ability to carry out My plan for you. I am your Creator, – the One who designed you to bring about good things in the world by My Grace. You don’t have to underestimate what you are capable of when you pair your willingness with My will. You can even face criticism without letting it slay you. I will strengthen you so that other’s negative comments don’t wear you down. Wish love upon the haters, and remember that love and Light dominate darkness, always. Don’t let others or self-doubt get you down. If God is for you, who can be against?
You have already done great things for Me. Others see your Light and are drawn closer to Me as a result. You give reassurance, inspiring others by how you handle adversity. I will not let you go so low as to not be able to get back up. I will never leave or forsake you. Stay strong, especially now. When you think you are at the tipping point, keep focused on My Presence and I will restore your footing. I will continue to supply you with all you need.
Concentrate on My flow plan for today. As activities unfold, moment by moment, allow My lead to guide your steps. Recognize the pressure for “performance” that is ego-driven, and instead, perform for Me as an audience of One. Show your stuff in honor of Me. It’s okay to be enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and appealing to others – this is part of how I designed you. Share news and information that edifies. Be delightful! You are My bright child in whom My Light shines. Go with confidence, joyfully, into this day with the pressure off. In you I am already well-pleased.
Why do you fill your head with anxious thoughts, problems to analyze, and preparing for things that haven’t even arisen as concerns yet? You spend so much energy planning ahead for things that never happen. Try practicing being alert in the present today instead. Notice the play of light outside your window. Feel the cool air coming inside. Take in each sound: clock ticking, birds calling, dog barking, the ceiling fan. Notice the variety of colors and textures as you move your eyes to slowly scan left to right. In quiet observance of things around you, you can take your mind off the “to-do list” and see the calming effect being with Me in the present can bring. Now, thank Me for the with-God life you have readily available at your fingertips. Go in peace.
Touch the pages of My Word and recognize that they are REAL, – passed down from age to age so that you, too, may hear My voice and the voice of My Father. Holy, sacred text connecting you to heavenly realms of understanding, guidance, and consolation. Then, place your fingertips on your head and heart, recognizing that My Presence is also real within you. I am an active God, full of wonder, desire, love, compassion and forgiveness. It’s important that you stop criticizing and condemning yourself for every flaw. Allow Grace to wash your mind clear from harmful worries and any misperceptions as you take in My story and choose to walk in the holy steps I place on your path. Walk in joy, connected with Me as a tangible, forgiving, loving God.
Being with Me is not as hard, strange, or distant as you think. All it takes is a quieting in your thoughts to realize I am already there, – listening, loving, and guiding. I want My Presence known in the world. I want you to speak with Me intimately. The benefits of this are huge, accomplishing My works and also restoring and renewing your Spirit. Without Me you can become dried up, drained, and agitated. I desire life flourishing within you, a wellspring of joy. Be cognizant of My Presence in and all around you inviting conversation between us. I am here!
I know what I have asked you to do can be hard. When you feel discouraged, – even angry at the load you carry for Me, – remember that I am right there with you carrying the weight and renewing your strength daily. Don’t fall under the deceptive one’s message that you “can’t handle it anymore”. That is a lie, because with Me, all things are possible. Your life, your purpose, and your joy matters to Me immensely because you are My beloved child. Step persistently into today with confident trust that your deepest desires have been heard and are being attended to by Me.
