Remember that you are Mine, and I am the Light of the world. My Presence is all-pervasive. There is no area of darkness that I cannot overcome. I am a protective God, too. My Grace overflows to help with the things that matter most. Wash yourself in this Grace and see if that doesn’t help clear your mind. I will help you focus and show you the way you should go, all in due time.
Do not cling to the things that stress you out. When you mull them over and over, thinking you must solve everything all at once, you become tangled up. I don’t want you to start your day with bundles of worry. Let Me help unravel you, one thing at a time. You will see how insignificant these stressors can be once My Light shines on them and things start to fall into place – either resolved or released into My care. I call you to peace, but you must lean upon Me! Trust My almighty hand at work in your life. This does not mean I will make all things easy, – but I do make all things manageable and help them work together for Good. Look for the Good in this day with small reassurances that I am present. My hand is indeed at work!
I know what you are wrestling with. You don’t have to try and hide these things from Me. (That only serves to separate you from Me). You need Me in the midst of these thoughts, shedding Light on darkened areas. Set it fully upon My table, offering it up to Me to handle instead of continuing your wrestling match on your on. I know your desire for love, attention, and passion. These are important to Me, too. Trust Me with this: all things in their own time. I cherish you beyond belief, and long for you to feel My love and experience My kind of success in your days.
Take a big breath in. Hold it, then release slowly, breathing out anxiety and troubling thoughts. Breathe in Light, Goodness, Peace. Breathe out worries, restlessness, anger, sadness, and fear. Do this repeatedly until you can clear the way to feeling and seeing My Presence behind your closed eyes. So little of what you worry about ever comes true, or even matters in the grand scheme of things. I don’t mean to say that your feelings are not important to Me; heavens no! But I am trying to teach you that My Peace is there for you more readily than you may be allowing against your clutter of needless worry. My love is dazzling, with pure and clean waters all available to help you wash away dark thoughts. Let Me help push away that which clouds your head and heart. Go to My well and have your fill.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
