Calming Images

My burden is intended to be light, – easy. Live in love. Stop all the planning and listen. My will for you is to be in the moment. You are My artist, fully capable of calming yourself by capturing images to paint in your mind. See the early morning blue light and notice the interplay of light and dark. Soothe yourself with music, sights, and sounds – all provided by Me to delight your day today. It is good to carry these calming images with you. My Will is done in simple moments such as these.  

Pace Yourself

You can still find rest in the mix of busy to-do’s. Remember, though, that it is easier to find Me in the stillness than in the hectic craze of activity. I want to “Wow” you with My delights, – but you must be moving slowly enough to catch them.  Take one thing at a time, and delight in each small step or task. Pause, then notice Me and My gifts to you in beauty, simplicity, life, and Light. There is time enough for everything. Pace yourself to allow room for Me. 

Vying for Your Attention

There is a lot clouding your mind: little details, daily agendas, rehashing previous events and conversations. Try closing your eyes and focus instead on taking deep, slow breaths. Block out the noise of thoughts vying for your attention by noticing cool air streaming in through your nose and deeply reaching to the bottom of your lungs. Picture all of the junk – the physical aches and stress, the mental worries and frustrations, – being exhaled out. Do this slowly and intentionally for a few minutes. You cannot help but begin to notice My Light and warmth replacing the grayness. Allow this to draw you to a place of contentment. I am Light. I am fresh air and new breath. Become aware of My constant, loving Presence vying for your attention, too, and hold on to this loving truth. 

Big Things

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. 

Joy Beyond Appearances

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. 

Let Me Heal What is Broken

Let Me be your ALL. Let Me help heal that which is broken, and guide you to the green pastures of peace and contentment. Allow Me to help you love yourself as you are, and find the goodness that is present and perfect within My design. I never call you to hate or berate yourself. I ask you to receive and see My love for you, and once you can do that, to share this with others. Trust the truth of My Light within. You are where you are and WHO you are for a reason: My reasons, My purpose. 

Possible

My Light is absolutely dazzling all around you. No matter how dark the world may seem, or how monumental or oppressive the tasks before you may feel or appear, My ways are able to overcome all challenges. Like fresh, new-fallen snow lit by winter sunlight outside, it is almost too bright and blinding for you to take in fully. You can get a glimpse of it, though! Be amazed by My brilliant love and power in your life. Absorb this word: POSSIBLE. All things are possible with Me. Let My Light remind you that you are not alone, and you are able to bear much when we work together in harmony. I am bigger than any challenge or obstacle you face. Turn your face to the Light, and absorb My strength intended to help you today. 

Likeable

Oh, My worried and anxious one. Can’t you see that you are EXTRAORDINARY? You are gracious, encouraging, welcoming, compassionate, smart, and LIKEABLE. Ohhh, so likeable! You are just what others need around them. Leap in to this day. I will overwhelm you with My good plans. Don’t be like Jeremiah, doubting your capabilities. I need your strong Spirit shining through. You won’t have to do it all – just be present to others and be an encourager, pointing out what is going right. Help lead to new paths with enthusiasm. The fatigue and stress of the past does not have to be your truth today. My way is Light. My way is Hope. My way is TRUTH. 

Right Path

Be true to yourself, and the Goodness will follow. I mean what I say! Follow the Holy Spirit, who is showing you the way. Much healing has been done to you so that you may also bring much healing to others. I have such grand plans for you…My design is intricate and amazing! Keep sight of me. Hold onto My garments whenever you encounter anger or fears, and I will help keep your sight on peace. When you follow Me, you will continue to be protected and surrounded in LIGHT. Things of the dark will fade and retreat into the shadows off to the left, but we will veer untroubled on to the right path, bathed in Light. 

Light is Coming

The Light is coming. Even though much around you feels dark, encased with worry and fear that you might fail, My Light is there. Wait for it; look for it. My work with you is not finished. I know that some days you feel like you have to drag your feet to take the steps I need from you. You must trust that I see your reality. Though everything around feels like it’s supposed to be “joyful” in this season, the life you are living has its challenges and drudgery. Still, there is Light present. Even if it feels like the tiniest flicker, it is enough to light the way for you. Seek Me. Choose to wear My heart today. That is enough.
