Wait in quiet trust. I am a generous God with plans to give you all you need and even more in abundance. What is of most value is our time together. Life doesn’t always have to be full of “wow” experiences to be satisfying and joyful. Sometimes it is best lived in stillness and quiet. You can stop pushing so hard. Joy doesn’t necessarily accompany accomplishment. Learn to be in awe even in the undone, anticipating Goodness to come. You can also appreciate Goodness in the here and now.
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’ll give you all that you need to handle tough situations. While it may take extreme courage to walk through the door, remember that I’m the One opening it and accompanying you in, every step of the way. Look to Me for your confidence. If you need a protective stance, I’ll be the barrier to help deflect things that aim to hurt you. You can be peacefully present even among others who are engulfed in their own hostility. Hold My Hand tightly under the table. I’ll get you through.
I have big things in store for you – bigger than you can even imagine. Let My plan unfold with an open mind to all that I call you to do. You are already Mine, – instilled with ability to bring about my purposes of healing, connection, and kingdom-building. Trust Me with this every day work, uttering a willingness to accept whatever is laid before you. Nothing will be too hard with Me there to guide and accompany you. You can even be peaceful in the process. There’s no need to waste energy on anxiety. Put aside those old ways, ready for all that’s coming.
I see how fatigued you get. That busy head of yours is almost always in over-drive. Park the car for a second and check in with Me. Is everything you are trying to do really a priority when you pass it by My scrutiny? What can you let go of, delegate, or set-aside for another day? Find better balance today by coming to Me to sort things out. I can give you clarity and focus. Remember that I continually offer peace to you. Stop and receive My Grace-filled gift.
It’s alright to acknowledge your anger when it arises. In fact, it’s important to pick it up, examine it without judging it as “good” or “bad”, and then set it down at My feet. Let your anger rest there, entrusted to Me so that you can move on. If you keep grabbing it back, I cannot help as much as I’d like. You don’t have to spend so much energy wallowing in fury or petty annoyances. I attend to you and all of your emotions with Grace and healing, calling you to peaceful living.
I know how you struggle with finding or maintaining a peaceful state of mind. It feels like there is so much to do and so little time some days. I want you to take off the pressure to perform. The best way to manage that is to intentionally pause and linger in moments. Stop long enough to whisper My name and recognize My calming Presence. Listen for small sounds and focus on the gentle Light I place around you. In this quiet, hushed place you can be refreshed- reminded that you never go it alone. I am with you, equipping you and taking care of the outcomes. You will have all you need.
All is well. You don’t have to overthink the day ahead. I have taken care of all the details. It’s all laid out on My God-map for you. You have prepared well enough. Now your task is only to journey slowly with Me, – one step, one hour, one task at a time. Let your focus be on loving others, which is pleasing to Me. Be simple and intentional with your gestures and words. My Way is one of peacefulness and gentleness toward and through you today.
In My hands. All of it is in My hands. You can stop over-thinking things by focusing on that phrase. No detail goes unnoticed or unrecognized by Me. I am intimately aware of all your concerns as well as your habits of worry. I love you and am tenderly and gently holding every fragment of your life and mind. Shush now, My child. All is well. You don’t have to be so afraid.
There is much to be said for slowing down. In a fast-paced world there is little room for awareness of My Presence and My reign over you and all of life. Don’t let the task-master ways in you rule. Step back, often, and pause to listen – acknowledging My ways and recognizing My deep love for you. Be especially mindful of that today. Let Me bring peace back to your heart and mind.
