Contemplate doing life with Me today. Think about everything from a shared perspective, with you and I viewing tasks, sights, and interactions with people together. Respond accordingly, – willingly taking on whatever I lay before you with the knowledge that I am working right alongside as well as within you. You can enjoy it all, sharing wonder and delight inwardly with Me. My Good intentions are fulfilled as you work with Me and love tenderly. Step lightly, cognizant of how your footing and pathway are being lit step-by-step by Me from morning till nightfall.
Cut yourself some slack today. I don’t ask for perfection, so why do you do that to yourself? Take time to sit in My Presence until My love-light puts things into perspective. There is no part of you that is not worthy of My love! Rest your weary head on My shoulder until you can clear away destructive thoughts and inner criticism that rattles you. Stay with Me as long as you can. Find peace and assuredness return to your core and let joy rise through the cracks of imperfection.
Wait in quiet trust. I am a generous God with plans to give you all you need and even more in abundance. What is of most value is our time together. Life doesn’t always have to be full of “wow” experiences to be satisfying and joyful. Sometimes it is best lived in stillness and quiet. You can stop pushing so hard. Joy doesn’t necessarily accompany accomplishment. Learn to be in awe even in the undone, anticipating Goodness to come. You can also appreciate Goodness in the here and now.
It’s perfectly okay to enjoy yourself now and then. Go ahead and cut loose a little, letting down your guard. Allow your playful self to emerge. I am not a God of drudgery. Stop begrudging life’s circumstances and let lightheartedness back in today. See how a little fun can ignite your Spirit.
Why do you start to tense up before the day has even begun? It’s like you are constantly bracing yourself for the unknown. Try this instead: embrace whatever is coming with joyful anticipation that Good things will surface! Set your mind on “things unseen” as something positive to look forward to. Picture things working out, – however, leave the definition of that up to Me. I make all things work together for Good. Inhale trust; exhale fear.
I wish you could grasp My ways. I call you to a life of peace beyond reasoning. Try it: in this moment, consider that ALL IS WELL. Rest in the fact that as you lay your life before Me, allowing Me to have full control so that My kingdom can be built upon earth as it is in heaven, – you can become overjoyed with your part in this Divine Purpose. Lay your worries at My feet. Push them aside and concentrate on being with Me. Reign in your tendency to try and forecast or fix the future. Concentrate on the simplicity of this moment where you and I are ONE.
My hand is at work in your life in mostly imperceptible ways. This does not mean I’m orchestrating only demands upon you, nor does it mean your life will be free of hardships. I ask you to be a companion to others along the way. I need your voice to help shepherd and guide My sheep on earth. Do so patiently today- and trust My involvement in your acts of outreach. I will give you the words to say and the steps to take in bringing My Good to all that you encounter today. In this, you will know joy.
Hear Me tell you loud and clear that you are loved. Your life and purpose are of great value to Me. Assist Me in combating darkness with compassion and healing. Strive to listen to the pain of others and be My Presence in a hurting world. I will stock your reserves with enough supply of tenderness and boldness on the shelves to meet the demand, and I’ll dance joyfully with you when the day’s good labor is done.
Days like today are such a gift! I love it when you wake up with a grateful heart and notice how the break of dawn brings such mysteries of hope, Light, and color. Take in My dappled sunlight, ever on the move and calling you to hold onto a Spirit of Joy. Be willing to spread that joyfulness. Let Me use you to bring hope and goodness to others simply by keeping a twinkle in your eye and a grin on your face. You can lift the mood of a whole environment this way.
I call out “Come! Follow Me.” Allow excited or joyful anticipation of Good things to take over your heavy-laden mind. You don’t have to dread getting started because I’m already here. You can let go of the tendency to worry or fret. I will work it out somehow before all is done. Let’s move into today’s activities together.
