Let Me reach you in the mundane. If something you are working on seems dull and repetitive, try looking a little deeper at how you contribute to the benefit of others through these menial tasks. Every time you fold a load of laundry, wash a dish, pack a lunch, respond to an email…you do it for Me and for the good of all. See My purpose in the little things you do and take comfort knowing everything you do out of love MATTERS. It matters to Me and is therefore important for My world. You are valued and needed.
Even though sometimes life is hard or filled with difficult emotions, I am showing up. I am with you. You might feel like glimpses of Me are only fleeting, but that doesn’t negate My constant Presence. The trick is learning to recognize Me in occasional encounters but also still trust that I’m here even when you don’t feel or sense My nearness. In choosing to trust, you may find that you actually start recognizing Me more often. Check it out. I’m with you, – ALWAYS. Loving, supporting, and guiding you, – and attending to your every need.
The day ahead is an open page not yet written on. Use this to your advantage and Mine. In other words, walk in without assumptions or pre-formed conversations and attitudes. Be open to whatever I place before you. Fill it with words of love and encouragement, showing interest in others. Be genuine in your actions and reactions. I will be with you, filling the content with Grace-filled meaning and purpose.
I am near. The One who breathed life into you and loves you fully is right next to you, – even inside your head and heart. Take comfort in My utter closeness. I want to ease your painful anxiety. In fact, I ache to lift that burdensome way of thinking. Oh My child, if only you would latch onto the truth. Be aware of My Presence and plan, knowing that I strengthen, equip, and comfort you exactly as you need at any given moment. Therein lies your peace of mind, patiently awaiting you to trustingly breathe it in.
I Am always with you. Let that resonate within you, – DEEPLY within. I’m not just “here” or “there”, but everywhere. Behold My Presence to help you through the day. Go and act according to this. I don’t ask for obligation, I ask for Love. What is the most loving response you can offer in any given situation today?
Put your trust in Me. I am involved in your life, already at work. Good things are coming your way. Do work that exalts My name. I need your strength of voice and character and spirit to lead others. Don’t confuse people’s unhappiness as being a sign that you are doing something wrong or not doing enough. Show love just as I have love for you. Let Me take care of the outcomes, knowing I am involved in their life, too. You can still be happy without feeling guilty that others are not.
My Grace is enough for you. It will sustain you through your difficulties. Of course I am pleased with you! You are My beloved. There is no one beyond My reach of love – especially not you, My child. I call you MINE, loving you deeply and even more than you love your own circle of loved ones. Look up. See Me gazing at you with such great tenderness, wanting to erase your worries and remove your pain; wanting My love for you to be enough. You know what that feels like. Just as you wish for your deep love of those whom you treasure to be enough for them, I want that for you.
Look for the most vivid color that you can spot in your surroundings. Hone in on it, trying to notice every detail for a moment. See how it stands out, intricately woven. That’s how you are to Me: worthy of being noticed and even admired. Acknowledge My Presence within the design. Allow yourself to be astonished by this truth and take time to appreciate our Goodness together. You matter to Me. Practice this simple act of observance everywhere you go today, impressed by the clarity of how one thing can stand out so clearly as evidence and a reminder of My Presence and love in the world.
Yield to My beautiful design for you, full of love and tremendous purpose. You are a good person, so stop questioning that. Smart, thoughtful, capable, loving, – and oh-so-sensitive. I see you trying very hard to make life special and supportive to others. You care, deeply. You, My dear, make a positive difference in the world. Get back on track believing this. Don’t let self-doubt shake this foundational truth about you. Go, – be with others and picture yourself comfortable in these shoes of sociability. Be the personable you I created. Remember who formed you!
I am a God who loves you. The world has messed you up a bit. I don’t control that part because I allow you and others to make your own choices. Choosing to love and forgive is hard on your own. Let Me help you with that. I also ask you to love yourself, which may involve self-forgiveness and recognition of your true value and likability. I can’t control what you tell yourself daily, but it breaks My heart when you despise or chastise your inner self. Ask for My help to be kind, loving, and forgiving instead – especially to yourself first. This will spill onto your interactions with others.
