Less Critical of Yourself

Try being less critical of yourself and see how this impacts your ability to show Grace better to others. Everyone has flaws, but this does not make anyone less-than-perfect in My eyes. I design all with unique traits, and imperfections have their place in making the world more relatable. Instead of judging yourself and others so harshly, try viewing shortcomings with a different lens, knowing no one is better or less than anyone else from My perspective. Using this, you will be better able to love unconditionally, including how well you love yourself. See how this enables you to be more at peace deep inside, too.

Peace When a Storm is Coming

O My precious child, I see when your emotions get so stirred up. You don’t have to hide them from Me. I see behind the mask you present to others telling them you are okay and everything is fine, while keeping your disappointment, fears, worries, and discouragement to yourself. I want the honest truth in all of your vulnerability so that I can provide the reassurance you’ll need to get through your todays and tomorrows. Knowing Me doesn’t mean no more troubles will come, but it does mean that all things will be manageable. You don’t have to second-guess how you’ll make it through; just rely upon Me more and you’ll find that peace is available even when it feels like a storm is coming.

A Sip of Contentment and Reassurance

You strive so hard. That busy head has a hard time shutting off or slowing down. Constant planning and busy-ness can be signs of how uncomfortable you are in the waiting and with silence, but you need not be so afraid. I’m inviting you to enter this new year differently. Come, sit often with Me at the well and experience My waters of grace and fulfillment. Take a sip of contentment and reassurance. I have you in the palm of My hands at all times. Sit in silence regularly with Me, truly handing each day over and practicing the art of trusting faith. Soon, you will find yourself actually longing for silence because you’ll understand how much our time together like this helps. Even if you only have a moment, seek My peace-filled Presence in silent communion with Me.

It’s Okay To Not Be On Top Of Everything

I am still with you and for you, even when you feel like you’re coming up short. It’s okay to not be on top of everything all the time. Sometimes, this may offer others the chance to step up to the plate. You can trust Me to be God and to work things out even if you feel unprepared. Let Me be in charge while you take a step back, and watch My great hand at work. Find peace deep within as you trust Me to take care of all things.

Give Me Your Lists

There are many distractions tugging at you for your time and attention. Practice slowing and choosing one thing at a time to focus on. I can help you organize what to prioritize. Give Me all of your lists and the weight of your worry. I am here, always trying to make it more manageable for you. Problems arise when you look at the mounds and forget I am here, steadily taking care of the stacks, one by one. Look to Me for guidance and lean on Me for security. Peace is available when you remember I am in your midst and will never allow things to be too much to handle. Trust Me: we can get through anything together.

Imagine Positive Encounters

Picture delightful things coming your way. Imagine positive and joyful encounters, and set your mind up to receive and be part of them. Setting the stage for Goodness to arrive like this is important. If you can work on releasing undue anxiety and posturing yourself for happier experiences, the outcomes will bear much fruit. My reign is one that calls for peace on earth, so picture that happening as a result of all your activities today. After all, I am the peace-giver and I will be generous with you.

Step Back and Be Calmed

When you find yourself in a place where you are super worked up about something, it is probably time to step back. Remove yourself and check your thoughts to see if you are being tripped up by thinking “it’s all up to me” to handle or fix or address. That simply isn’t true. I am your God. I am sovereign over all things. Step back until you can see and be reminded of this deep truth: that as your God, I am with you and looking out for you. Maybe I only need you to show up and offer your presence, because I’ll handle the rest. Leave any “fixing” up to My capable hands. I want you to find peace again, not living agitatedly with anxious and stress-filled approaches. Step back, breathe, and be calmed by how I am at work in your life.

“Not Today”

You don’t have to let yourself get all panic-stricken today (or any day, really!). Keep those fearful imaginings and worst-case-scenarios at bay by mentally putting your hand up and saying “Nope! Not today. It isn’t going to play out that way.” Replace worried thinking with images of you and I being together, calmly observing life unfolding peaceably. I want that for you. Picture good outcomes and smiling encounters. Notice the Light around you and inside you. Be confident in the light-filled ways that I work in, through, and near you today. I am yours and You are mine, truly.

Goodness Can Always Be Found

Life is full of choices. Loving others is a good choice. Making time to be creative is also a good choice. My Spirit can be found in both places. I appreciate your giving heart. There will be time enough for everything, so seek peace and follow after it. Stay with Me and see how I make each day anew. Goodness can always be found, and you can choose to focus on it.

Be Tender to Your Inner Self

Be tender and kind to your inner self. Hold every inkling of worry with compassion instead of judging it harshly. But, don’t hold onto it for long. Release your cares to Me with confidence that I listen, and I love you enough to attend to every little thing that distresses you. Ask Me to help handle the unexpected stressors that pop up, too. I am there for you, just like that, in an instant.
