Gradually you are coming into awareness of the life I have planned for you. Even with life’s setbacks, – which sometimes seem like an unending onslaught of problems, – I am with you, carving a way through. There is a bend in the road up ahead. Together, let’s walk on it. Let Me sling My arm over your shoulder as we approach it cheerfully. With Me, all things are possible…even living joyfully.
“Timing is everything”. My timing is mystical. I’m not random with My purpose, though. Sometimes I nudge you boldly into action, and other times I hold you back from change until I know you are ready. The events in your life may also be created for the benefit of OTHERS, not necessarily your own. Take joy in trusting My divine crafting of your life events. Try not to disdain your circumstances. I know what I am doing, and there will be benefit for you in due time.
Your mind is foggy and weighed down. Picture Me instead. Focus your thoughts on an image of Me standing lovingly in front of you, inviting you in to the day as I put my arm around your shoulder and guide you through each doorway. You have no idea what’s in store, but I do. Let’s head into the unknown together with peaceful and even joyful anticipation of all we will encounter.
I give you lots of food for thought. Sometimes you rush through My word like a fast-food meal in the drive-through. Instead, try taking your time as with a sit-down meal, appreciating each bite and ingesting it until it nourishes you. My word is the lamp to light your way. Come to My banquet with a grateful heart, ready to take it all in and become truly satisfied and full. Let Me reassure you, fulfilling every need so that you can find joy and peace.
You are enough (even more than!). Get it into your head, and relax in this truth. Be comfortable in your own skin, because I am an amazing God and you are My amazing child. I am so proud of who you are: My creation, – oh-so-loved. Walk peaceably in this day, knowing you can have inner confidence based on My Light within you. Nothing has to ruffle your feathers. Approach each situation with a knowing and loving eye when you use My eyes that see and My ears that hear. Spread My love and joy to the world.
You can be excited about all I have in store for you. The day is coming when you will reap benefit from what you’ve sewn, with confidence restored. I provide abundant healing of old wounds. Keep using the talents I have given you. If you haven’t used them lately, ask My Spirit to help you find an avenue to do so again. Invest thought time in re-building yourself up, making way for all that is to come. Be ready for GOOD things to occur. Allow yourself the joy of anticipation.
It doesn’t have to be so hard. So many of the things you picture in your head or worry about never come true. Rather than always bracing for the worst, try embracing the best today. Picture things turning out well, and live into this. Know that as a loving God I desire good things for you. They are already on the way! Life with Me, daily, can bring unimaginable and far-reaching joy.
Look to Me to find out what it’s like to be joyful again. In My supportive arms there is no room for distracting worries. Learn to quickly release petty irritations in order to move on to greater peace. I will help you. I’ll reveal choices you can make, moment by moment, that buy into a radiant life versus staying stuck in the gray mire of anxiety. See My words as a radiant neon light beckoning you to “Come this way!” It’s worth the effort to release old hurts or unfounded fears, moving toward the Light. Choose to do whatever it takes to step away from negative habits you long to be rid of.
Know that I am GOOD. Know that I also fill YOU with Good. Stop disdaining your human mistakes. It hurts Me when I hear you putting yourself down. Embrace yourself, flaws and all, seeing that the Good far outweighs the negative or any frailties. Try to see yourself as I see you. In My Light there is radiant love, appreciation, forgiveness, and complete acceptance. See My view of you, that you may be radiant with JOY.
I need your help today, even if it’s hard or you make a mistake or others are insensitive in the process. Make it about Me, and I will bless that. I ask you to spread joy, leading with kindness, compassion, and dedication. By heading into the day willingly, – even if you don’t feel like it, – you are honoring Me and I will bless that. There will be time enough for everything. I have laid out the path before you, and you will find grateful faces surrounding you. I am a generous God, not a harsh, demanding one. Change your perspective from one of being “hurt” or “guilty” to one of being ready to see Goodness. My love abounds and the earth is dancing all around you. Rise up and join the dance.
