I never leave you to handle things all by yourself. I can redeem past hurts & sorrows and help with current challenges, making Goodness happen, but you are still allowed the freedom to choose how you see and approach things. Consider bringing your perspective before Me for review. Allow Me to help sort things out and assist you with clearing your mind. As you become open to My loving, gentle guidance I will give you direction on how to handle whatever you are encountering. In choosing to push your momentary distress aside and trust Me instead, I’ll make way for a fresh outlook on the most helpful approach to your situation.
Pace yourself. Take a moment here and there to just breathe in My beauty placed around you. Stop and be grateful for our companionship. You aren’t expected to be busy every second of the day. By stopping to take it all in you will find the amazing gift of My Peace readily accessible anywhere you need it. My almost unfathomable love is available every second of the day so remind yourself often to pause and receive it!
Being with Me is not as hard, strange, or distant as you think. All it takes is a quieting in your thoughts to realize I am already there, – listening, loving, and guiding. I want My Presence known in the world. I want you to speak with Me intimately. The benefits of this are huge, accomplishing My works and also restoring and renewing your Spirit. Without Me you can become dried up, drained, and agitated. I desire life flourishing within you, a wellspring of joy. Be cognizant of My Presence in and all around you inviting conversation between us. I am here!
Listen to Me first. As you quiet yourself, hear Me reassuring you that you are fine just the way you are. Make that your starting point today. Stop berating yourself or putting undue pressure to perform before your day has even begun. Instead, start by resting in the truth that you are loved by Me, worthy, and capable. I equip you and won’t push you out the door alone to face or handle whatever is before you. We are in this together, with My power and Grace infused in you.
Why do you stress out with mental replays of the day before or past interactions? What’s done is done. Regretting that you didn’t do more or say the right thing won’t help. Nestle into My reassuring arms, trusting Me to make something Good come out of everything. I suggest that when anxious thoughts creep up, train yourself to say, “What I did was enough. God will take care of the rest.” The hardest part is choosing to believe this very truth. Be consoled by the fact that you don’t have to fix everything. Offer Me your best and I will do whatever mending is needed.
Things will get done. You like everything neat and tidied up. I watch you aiming for no loose ends and mentally forming strategies to handle everything before you in an effort to not feel overwhelmed. Today I invite you to meet Me and relax even with the undone. Give yourself permission to take breaks. As you sit and are present with Me in the moment, My Grace is attending to your every need. Allow Me to soothe your frazzled mind as you practice being still. Know My love for you is real.
Take it easy today. By that I mean ease into the duties awaiting you. Take one thing on at a time instead of trying to manage the whole pile. Resist the temptation to multi-task and you will find the day feeling more manageable. Trust Me to hand you things one by one in the order most needing attention. Ask for My Grace to help slow you down and concentrate. I am with you and for you as you accomplish My Will for you today.
Difficulties and mood changes come and go in ebbs and tides. The trick to mastering them is to stop in the moment and look for Me. I want to reassure you, – guiding you to actions and acceptance so that you can experience My kind of peace. No matter what you are facing, I am present in those circumstances and helping. All will be well. You can find calmness when you stop to acknowledge our relationship and My sovereignty over your life (and the lives of those you love and worry about, too). Choose to breathe in trust.
I made you a smart person who is capable of clear thinking, sound judgment, and good decision-making. Even with all that ability, though, sometimes life hands out situations that are hard to sort out. I can tell you this much: as you make your choices, I will never leave your side. When you ask for My guidance, I will lead the way. You have to work on trusting the decisions and not looking back or second-guessing the choices that are made. Move on, facing forward with determination, faith, confidence, and peace of mind. Knowing I am with you always will help you rest. You can’t go wrong with Me.
Humble yourself before others today, offering up any ego-driven need to be “right” or “the smartest” or “on top of everything”. Sometimes backing down and letting others have their way can bring more peace than having everything turn out like you think it should. Trust Me in this, and let My hand take control of the moving parts in your life. I won’t steer you wrong. Let Goodness and positive intentions rule today, experiencing My love for you as well as for others in this way.
