Say yes to all I hold in store for you! Today is a good day to go with eyes wide open to possibility. I love you, and My plans are never for harm. Stretch your mind with consideration of new ideas. Trust again that I am both working on and in charge of your life. It’s okay and safe to consider new things. I’ll be with you everywhere you go, and I stand before you beckoning you into unfamiliar territory. You are safe with Me.
Why are you so stirred up? Instead of picturing things “falling apart”, set the stage in your mind as if everything is “falling into place”. That’s how I work. Ultimately, things DO work out. I know it’s hard to see that in the middle of the storms and chaos of life. Be still for a moment, though, and recognize that I am God and I am at work. Take the pressure off by performing only for Me and My outcomes. My standards might be different than your expectations. It’s okay to lighten up and let things go, even if it’s not in the direction you thought it would go. All things will work out in the end. Relax into that concept today and see how your anxiety dissipates.

When dread creeps into your thoughts, that’s usually a sign of unfounded worry. Once the real event actually unfolds, you’ll see how My Goodness comes through. Glimpses of Me can show up in just a glance: a view from a car window as you drive; the lilt of someone’s laughter; a call or text that you weren’t expecting but brings delight. My Goodness is the reality and hope you can cling to. Anticipate positive things and feel that burden of anxiety lifted from your chest. I am here, making all things new.
I love you even when you’re crabby or discouraged. That being said, let’s shake the dust off those tired feet and get moving. I’ll lift your spirit. I have a way of brightening your outlook when you start to recognize the anxiety-ridden or self-pitying pitfall you’re in. Decide to at least try trusting Me to help shift your focus. Telling yourself phrases like “this, too, shall pass”, “maybe it’s not that bad”, or “things are looking up” helps. Choose a new mantra and work on a positive pep-talk to yourself knowing I’m at work in your life and I can be trusted to make change happen.
Like water rolling off a duck’s back, let those petty annoyances drip off. Shake your feathers and watch those insensitive and unkind words flick off easily. You are deserving of love and don’t need those negative memories gnawing at you. Look for the Good and presume positive intentions even if other’s actions were offensive, condescending, or hurtful. You can be bigger than that and walk away from the negativity. Nothing needs to erode your Peace, which you’ll find in looking to Me and living in My ways. Ask Me for help to clear your mind and find Me readily with you, refreshing your perspective and outlook.
I know you’ve tried: tried to listen, tried to resolve the problems. I was there and I know your good intent. Trust Me on this: I make all things new. I leave you My peace, which is not always peace as the world sees. Trust your instincts and know that Goodness lies in doing My will, even if you can’t yet see positive outcomes. I am at work in the world and in you.
I am looking out for you. I call you by name. Your time is valuable, so spend it well. While you’re at it, choose your attitude. Seek to hear and bring positive messages of hope. As you work on relaxing and breathing in My calm and peace, anxiety won’t be able to seize you up. There is reason to believe that Goodness lies ahead.
Just as your body needs exercise to stay well, so does your mind and Spirit. Devoting time for prayerful exercise, working on being calm and building muscles of trust in Me daily, will do much for your wellness. Watch your attitude match your capability as you head into the day, facing the unknown with complete trust that I will equip and sustain you. I supply just enough of what you need to get through your day. I am a reliable God, and I won’t be stingy or absent when it comes to meeting your needs. Make your prayer requests known to Me and exercise trust and gratitude in the fact that I hear and attend to your every need.
Your ability to connect to others comes from within, so use genuine conversation and reflect My Light of Love and Hope through your eyes and warm words. This comes naturally to you when you allow yourself to invest faith in My design. Believe in your inherent Goodness and trust your capacity to influence the world in positive ways today. No vision of that is too big or too small. Take full advantage of the opportunities I place before you to lovingly and brightly impact the world around you.
Stay true to Me and to what you are passionate about. After all, I instill inspiring thoughts, and I open doors. As long as it is Me you are ultimately serving, your efforts will be fruitful. Be of good cheer even in the mundane tasks of today, for the reward later will show you efforts were worthy of time, devotion, and attention.
