Roll With the Circumstances

You have what it takes. Speak boldly, as I have prepared you to do. Also speak kindly, with nurturing words toward yourself and others. Nothing needs to rile you. You can easily choose to roll with the circumstances that come upon you today, knowing I am with you no matter what happens next. I am present even in the unexpected, so don’t allow anxiety to cast a shadow over the bright things about to happen. You can handle everything when opting to do it in partnership with Me and under My Good plans for you.

Stumbling Blocks

Steer clear of stumbling blocks today. Avoid the blame game, and shrug off any tendency to speak negatively of others. This is hard and may challenge ingrained habits that aren’t serving you well. Lean into Me for strength if and when I call you to curb your tongue like this. I will help you avoid those pitfalls that could trip up My Good plan for you today. My way is one of truth, Light, and kindness. Choose the high road with Me today.

Soften Up

Take time to relax and remember that I have you in the palm of My hands. Cling to Me as I work on washing away old hurts, making you impervious to them over time. I’m not One to ask you to “toughen up”. Rather, I want you to soften up on yourself. As you learn to cut yourself some slack, you will find it easier to accept others are they are, as well. You won’t be as susceptible to the sting of off-handed remarks that tend to hurt or offend you. There’s no need to feel defensive when your confidence and assurance lies with Me.

Don’t Get Pulled Off Track Today

Each day people will do small deeds that are inconsiderate or unkind. Sometimes big injustices happen. Even so, I want you to release these irritations and frustrations into My care. Don’t allow your thoughts and emotions to run wild with ideas about how to tell others off or bring about justice on your own. This wastes important energy and will distract you from the peace and joy available within. Don’t get pulled off track today or be derailed by small injustices. Releasing things to My care doesn’t make you a “doormat”. It takes great strength of character to choose to walk away or to treat others with dignity and respect despite their behavior. My way is better. My way will free you and allow you to rise above any circumstance with great calm and internal respect. Pray for your enemies, even if this does not come easily. I will give you the grace, strength and wisdom in how to handle the situation if your heart is intent upon following My way.

Seek First to Understand

Let My Goodness rule in all of your interactions today. Silently make note of times when you recognize My Presence, kindness, and love. Strive for peace with all you encounter. You get there by listening well and responding respectfully. I’ll give you the words to say when it is time to speak. Seek first to understand, though. Don’t skip this important step. Remember that I place you and others on a path with a purpose which you may not see or realize. Entrust Me with whatever you face today, and leave the outcomes up to Me.

Allow Yourself to Like Yourself

You know Me. I can take the pressure off a little as you sit with Me, allowing Me to care for you. You are endearing to Me with the ways you love and care, – always trying so hard. Allow yourself to like yourself today. Stop picking every little thing apart and choose to be accepting and kind toward yourself. See how life-changing this can be!

Stop Using Guilt & Worry As Motivators

My love for you is not dispensed only by your good works or positive intentions. My love is totally free and ever-available. This is hard to wrap your head around because you are always trying so hard to “do what’s right” and be “good/kind/considerate enough”. Let Me tell you again that you are already “good enough” for Me and I love you completely as you are. Think about how knowing and trusting the truth of these words may change how you act and think today. Stop using guilt and worry as your motivators. Simply be compelled to be lovingly accepting of yourself and others, relaxing into this God-fueled mindset. As you learn to show compassion for yourself this will ease your distress.

Being a Good Human

Being a ‘good human’ requires intentional effort. Choose to be fair, kind, and just today. Treat yourself and others with respect and dignity. “Take the high road”. You’ll find Me giving you a hand along the way, with guard rails in front of the risky places you could otherwise fall into if you’re not careful. Let Me be your Guide and Protector. I won’t let you fall. 

Your Only Job Is To Love

You think you have many tasks on your calendar today, but look at it from this perspective: your only job is to love. In every call you receive and every interaction you have, your business is simply to show love. That may require you to listen a little longer to those who appear annoying or trivial initially. Lend an attentive ear with kindness. It may require reaching out when you know it will cause an investment of time that you’d rather be spending elsewhere. If you take My business of loving to the streets of your city, My kingdom can be built one encounter at a time. Take the excess worry, anxiety, and frustration off your plate and pile it at My feet. I’ll make room for what is most needed today.

Attend to the Hurt Responsibly

Kindness: show it, accept it, receive it from Me. I understand your annoyance, hurt, and anger. Your emotions are reasonable. It’s what you do with them that matters. Attend to the hurt responsibly. Figure out what is beneath the anger, then learn how to express that constructively with loving and good intentions behind the message. Walk away if and when needed. You don’t have to be reactive to everything that stirs up your dander. Come to Me as the Great Counselor. I’ll help. Together let’s prayerfully process everything so I can soothe and calm you. I’ll give you ideas for what to say and when and how to do it.
