I Can Calm the Stress

I see and feel the way pressure grips your heart as you start this day. Take a deep breath of reassurance and hold it. I can calm the stress once you realize and remind yourself that I’m the One in charge. This takes a willful act of trust, allowing yourself to be led by Me instead of trying to figure it all out on your own. Inhale confidence in My capacity to provide. Breathe out old ways of worry. Let’s work together on releasing pressure through faith in My love and plan for you. 

Intentionally Responding to Moments

Keep listening. I am offering words of guidance to you every day. It may come in the form of  an inkling or nudge to call someone. Perhaps I’ll guide you to stop and take notice when a situation comes into focus. Pause and give each your full attention, intentionally responding to these moments. In this way, you can grasp and live the with-God life. I need you in this day for so many reasons. Take hope from this message, knowing you are of great value to Me as part of My loving plan. Be My Presence in the world today. 

Unnecessary Guilt

Getting rid of unnecessary guilt is key to finding peace. Stop thinking you are so responsible for everything. You can’t control the outcomes of every situation, nor do I expect that from you. Work on recognizing when you are taking unnecessary blame on yourself. Sometimes all your effort still produces disappointing results. You can’t fix others emotions. Show that you care through your love, but release the desire to control outcomes. Hand that part over to Me because I know what I’m doing. Be kinder to yourself. I recognize your good intentions, and I love you. 

Carry On

If you’re in a fragile state, remember that it’s okay – you are safe with Me. I’m right here to reassure and console your tender heart. Wrap yourself in My fleecy blanket of love, taking time out to rest. (Sometimes a little nap is all you need). Remain in the comfort of My Presence while I attend to you fully. Let Me serve you a banquet of kindness and understanding until you are calmed again. All is well, and you can, indeed, carry on.

Embracing the Best

It doesn’t have to be so hard. So many of the things you picture in your head or worry about never come true. Rather than always bracing for the worst, try embracing the best today. Picture things turning out well, and live into this. Know that as a loving God I desire good things for you. They are already on the way! Life with Me, daily, can bring unimaginable and far-reaching joy. 

When Care Isn’t Returned

You are stronger than you think. Your cup of reserves will be replenished over and over again to do all that I call you to do and ask of you. I am a reliable God. I fill you with ideas and notions to reach out, to speak up, and to show you care. I know that you care deeply for others and sometimes it feels like it’s not recognized or returned. I see your heart and recognize your need for affirmation. Let My voice be the approval you seek and find, daily, without fail. You are treasured, and you are MINE. Hear Me validating your worth. 

Fill Their Well

Today I ask you to be a blessing to others. I have gifted you with confidence through Me and others will be drawn to share in that treasure. Teach them how to love. I will give you the words to say. I won’t ask more of you than you can give safely. Open your eyes to opportunities I lay out before you. Fill their well as I am filling yours. I pour Grace into you and you pour it into others until all the buckets are filled. All things are possible with Me. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t appear to be well-received. I only ask you to do what you can, and trust Me to handle the rest. 

See Yourself As I See You

Know that I am GOOD. Know that I also fill YOU with Good. Stop disdaining your human mistakes. It hurts Me when I hear you putting yourself down. Embrace yourself, flaws and all, seeing that the Good far outweighs the negative or any frailties. Try to see yourself as I see you. In My Light there is radiant love, appreciation, forgiveness, and complete acceptance. See My view of you, that you may be radiant with JOY. 

Always Choose Love

Choose the most loving reaction you can think of with whatever faces you today. A kind word, an embrace, a pause to react with forgiveness rather than admonition toward another. These are things “of Me”. Whisper to Me throughout the day. Stay connected, gripping tightly to My hand. Always choose love. This, in turn, will bring you Peace. Love heals and sustains like nothing else can. 

Love That Fills and Satisfies

Relax. Breathe. You are worthy of My love, even in your state of fallen grace. I pick you up! I choose to hold you daily. Look at My face and find forgiveness. Embrace the all-healing love I long so much to pour over and in to you. Holy, unfathomable love; love that fills and satisfies. Love that asks for nothing other than your daily devotion and a pledge to love Me in return.
