When the View Appears Bleak

The road recently has felt arduous. No matter how difficult, though, I have walked it with you. Side by side, I am carrying the roughest and most grueling parts. I know it’s hard to feel joy when the days are dark and the view appears bleak. It’s not, though. All I can do is reassure you that hope is alive and well, and there is reason to believe that lighter days are in store for you and for those you love. Cling to Me today. Hold tight, and don’t give in to discouragement. You deserve happiness and will find it yet again.

Notice Things

Open the shades and peer outside. Take note of the stillness and calm of the morning. Like a blanket of snow, I cover the earth, – hovering over plants and grass, and blossoms awaiting their time in the spring. But I’m not just “out there”. I am inside, – in each home and each person, – including you. I’m the One peering out, giving you eyes that see and moments to capture in your mind. Let your aim today be to notice things with curiosity and delight. See how this lifts your Spirit and your mood. Be elevated by what you take in as you discover all I’ve laid out before you.

I Appear in Mysterious Ways

You know My face. You’ve seen Me before a thousand times, but you don’t always recognize Me. I appear in mysterious ways, you know. Sometimes I am a stranger who greets you with joy. Sometimes I am close to you, as in a dear friend. I may appear as someone in need, but-  in fact, – it is YOU who is in need. Look for Me and you will find Me. Ask Me whatever it is that you need to ask. I am always listening, always present, always available. Listen to Me in return. I speak to you in many ways. Learn to recognize My face and voice. Trust yourself when you hear or catch a glimmer of what you think may be Me. I am closer than you think.

Better Balance

You know when you’ve overdone it. Excessive activity and busy-ness leaves you stressed, fatigued, and crabby. Indulge in some R & R and consider this a Godly move. Choosing to invest in down time for rest will lead to better balance to build up your emotional and spiritual reserves. I need you to be well-balanced, not strung out on overdrive. Honor Me by honoring My design of what brings you joy and peace. Hear My call to give you rest and pleasurable activities These are part of My plan for you, too.

Hard to Get Going

Some days are just plain hard to get going. I recognize that. No matter how much you feel weighed down, though, I am with you to help jump-start your day. I carry the heaviest burdens so you don’t have to strain yourself. Instead of taking on a “woe is me” attitude, picture Me smiling and saying, “I’ll take care of that.” Hand over your hardest or most mundane tasks to Me and move on to something else. See how this act of trust in Me improves your energy and shifts your focus. Before you know it, the day will have passed and things will have gotten done in satisfying ways. Partner with Me like this all day and see joy being renewed in your heart.

Your Great Companion

You are Mine, and I am your Great Companion keeping you on track. It is you who sometimes doubts that, not Me. Do you understand what being a companion means? I ask you to talk over plans, share intimate thoughts and details, laugh, cry, and share all of life together with Me. Are you fully with Me? Discover the joy that our companionship offers today and every day. You can take it one day at a time. Tell Me everything; don’t hold anything back. I will share the load and celebrate the accomplishments. Let’s live together in the moment.

I Leave Nothing Unattended

Take joy in your surroundings. Take time to really notice things, like the way the Light shines in, or how your tasks add to the beauty and order called for in this day. I leave nothing unattended. This can be a profound awareness that you must not take for granted. I am constantly aware of both the needs and concerns of all things, – orchestrating attentive responses. Try walking in a peaceful state of calm today trusting and knowing I have chosen your path and I am working in it with you.

Serve For My Good

You are My faithful servant. I want you to serve for My Good. My Good is when you touch the lives of others – sometimes in a passing hello, in more attentive conversations, and even in complicated activities. My Good abounds everywhere! Take some of it in for yourself today because I give My Good for YOU, too. I am not a demanding God who only asks you to serve. I don’t ask for your weariness or for you to over-extend yourself. Any day, in fact, you can receive from Me and I don’t consider it selfish for you to do so. My desire is for you to be replenished by My Joyful well.

Try Being Playful

Try being playful today! Don’t worry so much about how you look or how you come across to others. Just enjoy life in a more carefree way. My Spirit likes it when you dance and laugh. I created you with an ability to have some fun. It’s not “silly” or embarrassing. Being lighthearted is essential for renewal. See how this choice helps you manage your anxiety better. Let down your guard and play!
