Change Your Approach to Today

Let this day burst forth like a giant sunrise that makes you stop in your tracks. You can’t help but be wowed in My glory in moments like that. Try viewing your day from that vantage point: taking notice of the marvelous things instead of being blocked by a dreary view of all that tries to make you feel agitated or unhappy. Call upon My Spirit to help you change your approach to this day and the activities I have in store for you. Ask for help to see things as light, manageable, and doable. Put on garments of compassion and tenderness. Laugh out loud at least once today and watch your joy spill out onto others.

Lean Into My Sturdy Frame When You’re Weak

You are going to have bumps and bruises along the way. Everyone does. Knowing Me doesn’t make you immune to them. This is not because I am a cruel, neglectful, abusive, or punishing God. Quite the contrary! People stumble through life’s realities, and there is pain and discomfort that accompanies it by the sheer nature of human existence. But I am the Great Healer, Counselor, and Advocate. I am your Companion, placing healing ointments of grace and peace upon you along the way. I see your tears; I cry along with you. I recognize your worries and irritations, never dismissing them. Find Me, the One who knows you, and lean into My sturdy frame when you are weak. You don’t always have to be strong. Just be faithful and trust the walk we are taking together. You can still find joy.

No Need to Over-Indulge

Taste. Breathe. These sensations can bring simple pleasures that I designed and crafted unique to each person. Some smells and tastes bring aversion; others, fond memories and delight. Take note of the smell and taste as your food is being prepared today or consumed to sustain life. Let Me ask you: are you eating to live, or living to eat? It is important to care for your body respectfully and not neglect it. I am a God who provides pleasure, comfort, and healing through food. There’s no need to over-indulge. I bring sustenance and Goodness, and there is room at my table for all to take, eat, and have their fill.

Peace and Joy Can Go Together

I am working things out for you, kneading out the sore spots. Trust Me, and look for ways I send others to help. Being “contemplative” does not have to mean being sorrowful all the time. Peace and joy can go together, and are actually a very nice pairing available even when you’ve been hurting. Practice detaching from your surroundings and moving into a peaceful and observant mode, allowing the stream of interaction and movement to flow in whatever direction I guide. You will remain intact during the process, I assure you.

Endurance and Expansiveness

I have called you by name. It is My job to take care of the others that you are worried about, not all yours. Remember that My plans are for your welfare, not dismay. For now, endurance and expansiveness are words for you to concentrate on. You have been gifted with strength and stamina, which will help when it comes time to move forward. Expand your view and open yourself to possibility. When courage and bravery are needed to take steps in a new direction, you will know. Don’t forget that I love you, and I don’t want or expect everything to be so hard for you all the time. Joy will return. There is time enough for everything, though, so just concentrate on appreciating the day before you.

So You’ve Made Some Mistakes…

Okay, so you’ve made some mistakes…and some habits are tough to break. Still, I can make all things new if you are open to Me and willing to work on it. Whatever habit you really desire to change for your wellness can definitely happen. Picture Me helping. I’ll give you courage, willpower, and positive energy to make blessed changes happen. Joy is around the corner. Trying to do it all on your own willpower would be rougher than it needs to be, so ask for My help and lean into Me. Together we can change for the Good.

I’m Glad You Showed Up

It’s been a while since you’ve listened for My voice, but that’s okay. I’m just glad you showed up today with interest in what I have to say. My message for you is simple: I love you fully and completely, exactly as you are without any disclaimers over things you think disappoint Me. Start fresh today with that truth. “Tabula Rosa” – a blank slate without any dings on your record. Walk with a lighter step and brighter affect knowing you can be at peace with all things reconciled until Me. It’s easier to live joyfully when you embrace this truth.

Perfection is a Misguided Aim

You are on the brink of falling into the old trap of beating yourself up inside your head. Today, choose life instead. Choose to love your flaws and imperfections, putting balance back into perspective as you see how much your Goodness outshines the rest. I love and behold you just as you are, with both sides included. Seeking perfection and expecting that of yourself is a misguided aim. Beloved, seek Me and My unconditional adoration of you as My creation. Certainly I want you to do your best, putting kindness, mindfulness, and intentionality behind all your actions, but I don’t want or expect perfection. Mistakes happen. Brush away the dark thoughts and find joy in the with-God life I intend for you.

Anticipating Good Things to Come

You get it. You know how having a grateful mind leads to a more joyful spirit. I want your happiness and to see you living a life not only of peace, but also filled with hope – anticipating good things to come. Picture it! Take whatever vision I lay on your heart or imagination and try approaching life as if it is a given that these good things are going to occur. Aim your sights on My powerful perspective. Nothing I desire for you is too small or too big to reach for and attain. Nothing.

Permission to Enjoy

Give yourself permission to enjoy things. There is no need to feel guilty or undeserving when good things come your way. I want you to experience joy and happiness and a life of ease, even though all of life will not be like this. Problems, losses, and challenges inevitably cycle through, but I still want you to be happy. Look for the gifts I place at your fingertips and give a nod of thanks to Me, your loving God, who provides all that you need and abundantly more than you could ever imagine or ask for.
