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!
My precious, precious child – why do you get so anxious? I will not leave or abandon you – EVER. If you feel fearful, lost, or alone, – wondering “which way to go”, – turn to look up at Me as I take your hand reassuringly and confidently. Think of Me as your guardian and trust Me fully, – that I will lead you on exactly where you need to go. Keep your gaze upon Me whenever your steps feel unsteady or unsafe. My hand will pull you up upon the rocks of higher ground. Enjoy the walk; don’t try to run ahead of Me without My guidance. Slow down, and go at My pace, – one day at a time. You will find great peace in doing so.
I see you, and I know your heart. You are weary from the frenzied thoughts always trying to plan for the unexpected, control the unknown, and fix things beyond your control. You are tired of bracing yourself for difficult encounters so often. You desire peace and reconciliation, but both feel beyond your grasp. Hear Me reminding you that you simply do not have to bear or do all of this on your own. Rest your weary head on My all-capable, consoling shoulders. Lean in to Me with your wounded, anxious heart. I am the Giver of all Good, and I intend to mend the torn tapestry within your life. I want your beautiful, colorful, intricate fabric to be on full display, brightening the room. The few frayed edges merely speak of a life well-worn. There is nothing to hide, nothing you have to keep bracing for all alone. Use My grace to find strength and confidence within.
I give you this day; notice Me in it. Something will speak to you. Listen, and look for Me. Beauty is all around when you take the time to get the right perspective. I know all that pains or worries you. Rely with certainty on the fact that I am attending to it all. You can still find peace, even when all does not seem “right”. Focus on trusting My Goodness. Constantly I stand at your door, waiting for you to turn the handle to open it and receive My loving reassurance. I am there. I will wait.
I see your pain. I hear your fearful and occasionally agitated voice, and I recognize your wish for peace and love. Remind yourself that I long for you all the day long. Our connection is not “magical”, – it is REAL. My tender heart is yours. My strength is there for you. Seek My kingdom first in your decision-making, and discover that I am there with you all the way through even when life feels painful. Imagine my loving, supportive arms around you in these moments. Hear My tender voice speaking at times through others, too. Utilize thankfulness as a tool to draw closer to Me.
I call you to BIG THINGS. Don’t be overwhelmed! Every day leads you on clearer paths to the work you’ve been destined by Me to do. When I open doors, it’s because you are ready. My timing is perfect, so walk or leap with complete faith and trust. There’s no need to feel tentative or hesitant. By trusting Me with all that is in store, you can boldly move forward. The anxious ways of your former mind can melt away in My trusted hands of healing and hope.
I am not only near, I am already here! I haven’t “arrived just in time”; in fact, I’ve been here all along. You can stop your panicked ways with My help. Shhhh. Quiet your mind and hone in on this moment with Me, your Savior. Use this reassuring mantra to calm you from within: I am here. I am here. The God who loves you is here. Everything will get done in due time, and today is included in that plan. Let’s step into this day together, purposefully.
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.
Go into this day knowing you are well-equipped for whatever tasks you have lined up to do. I give you the tools you need: reasoning, wisdom, words to speak, energy. When anxiety begins to bundle you in knots, turn to Me to help untwist them. I know what is important and necessary as well as what can be discarded, but you do not always know or see these things as clearly. When you find yourself overwhelmed or wrestling, think to turn to Me for help. Pause, and allow the Great I Am to breathe calm into you, giving you the direction you need one piece at a time.
I have messages for you daily. Try this one on for size: “All is well”. Can you live with that? Will you trust Me completely with all the details of your life, envisioning that I can help you rise above your circumstances to a point of wellness? Hear Me pleading with you to turn and face Me, over and over again, that I might soothe your aching head and heart. I weep with you in your sorrows; I laugh with you in times of joy. I yearn to be included in your deepest thought time, reassuring you that all is, indeed, well, despite any outward appearances that have led you to believe otherwise. You must work on trusting Me and handing over your worries because I have Good plans in store. Plans for your well-being, wellness, and welfare, – not for dismay, anxiety, unrest, rage, or fear. Remember that I cherish you like no other can.
