There are so many things I want you to check out with Me today. Picture me excitedly saying, “C’mon over here!”, waving you in to each place you enter. I’m so happy when you follow Me in. Enjoy when I introduce you to new people or things, showing you off and letting you get to know other great people to interact with. Go in with confidence, enthusiasm, and joyful wonder. Life with Me does not have to be a drudgery, or something to be afraid of all the time. You are welcome here; We both are. There is no longer a need for self-consciousness when you realize I led you here for My reasons and My purposes. Be glad and rejoice in it!
Know that you belong to Me. This means you are loved, welcomed, secure, and wanted. You “fit”. Concentrate on remaining with Me at all times. I care about you and long for you to be attentive to Me all hours of the day. When you are fretting and punishing yourself, you have your back to Me. All you need to do is turn around and run into My arms, which are outstretched and waiting to encompass you. Let Me caress away your fears as a loving, tender, reachable parent or partner. Allow Me to remind you that you belong; you are not an outsider. See Me all around you: I am tender, kind, and even fun. Choose to laugh with Me today in this place where you fit and “I get you”.
You are faithful and talented, – so talented!, – but you are only one person. Serve for Me and for My Good. My Good is when you touch the lives of others, – sometimes in a passing hello, other times in more attentive conversations or complicated activities. My Good abounds everywhere! Take a portion of it in today because I give My Good for you, too. I’m not a demanding God who only asks you to serve, serve, serve. Today you can receive, too. In fact, any day you can receive; this isn’t selfish. Insulate yourself against worry by taking time with Me daily and absorbing My gifts to you in the form of rest, quiet time, and help from others. I do not ask for your weariness. Fill your own well by first spending time with Me, receiving My Joy. Let it surprise you with how easy and satisfying it is to find once you recognize My Presence.
I have so much in store for you – it makes Me burst at the seams with Light and Purpose. Such joy is in store! Your heart for Me combined with My will for you is accomplishing great things already, – but there is more to come. Can you feel the excitement stirred within you? Do you believe in My potential waiting to come to life in you? Live with an inner confidence that is unshakable. Actualize My glorious plans for you one day at a time. Be open to possibility, and envision big things happening. I am a Grand and Glorious God, capable of all things. Believe in Me and believe in yourself.
I desire blessings in your life, not distress all the time. Don’t be so upset and worked up by these trials, for in it all is an opportunity for joy beyond appearances. You are bringing My Joy to this place – do not lose sight of this! Powerful things are arising – do not lose faith! I am. I will be with you always. Grasp My right hand. I will fill you with My Light and My Goodness. You are My faithful servant.
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.
There is so much ahead in store for you! But I need you to pull in the reins and concentrate only on today. Everything will unfold in due time. I don’t want you to miss a single thing. Focus on your surroundings and interactions in this day only, noticing My intentional encounters put in your path these next 24 hours. Every time your thoughts try to jump to the future, reel them back in to the present. This way, you can find Joy and Peace in the moment. My Presence is here. You don’t need to worry about trying to figure everything out in advance. See how I am taking care of you, meeting your need of daily bread for body and soul. Relax, and receive My love for you today, – and always.
You seek perfection, but I do not. You seek beauty, which I surround you with! Others see your beauty all the time, but you avert your eyes to their gaze. Your inherent beauty is actually one of your gifts – that is part of what draws others to you. I use you to draw others in and experience compassion, encouragement, tenderness, and joy – all present within and bestowed upon you. I want you to feel confident, but not only with your outward appearance. I want you to use your inner confidence to draw others in to My loving Presence within you, showing I am available in this way also for them. It’s a whole different way of looking at yourself. See with My eyes. Inspire others. Trust your evident beauty.
Your Spirit is connected to Me. I guide your footsteps to carry out My Will. It is Me who inspires, Me who creates – yet I do so in LOVE, not out of “demand”. My Will is to THRIVE in you with abundance and Joy! Your talent will be put to great use for Me. I am so happy with you. Remember that first and foremost. When you doubt that, you grow fearful and anxious, worrying about unnecessary things. I love you, – completely. I am not disappointed in you! You have great value to Me. Find Joy today in how you are being put to use for Me and for My world. I want that for you!
You are right where I need you to be. Stay strong and faithful. Any dark deeds of others will be overcome by My justice, so you don’t need to try to fix all that or figure it out on your own. Let it go. I am the way, the truth, and the life. I am the one in charge, and I have wonderful plans in store for you! Find your joy again in creating and in relationships so that your Spirit may be restored. Look to the heavens for where your help shall come. See? I do make all things new. My Grace can comfort you right where you are. Shine on! Bask in My warmth. Find and hold onto your Joy, even in this place.
