Everyone is a little bit broken, – even you. I don’t say that to sound mean or critical. Rather, I want to reassure you that I see and hold your fragility. I “get” the fearful and anxious thoughts that come into play when you encounter people and circumstances that scare or upset you, or make you second-guess yourself. It’s okay to back off a bit when you feel a need for protection or time to regroup and regain your footing. Run to My safe arms, which are always nearby and open for you. I will help steady you and I always aim to protect you. As I comfort you, your nerves will be soothed. Today doesn’t have to rattle you; trust in My loving Presence.

Cling to Me as we move through life today, like an infant latches on to its parent. I will nurture, teach, feed, protect, and instruct you. This kind of dependency may feel foreign in your adult world, but it is absolutely necessary if you are to live the with-God life intended for you. It is simpler than the complex lifestyle adopted by those striving to be so independent. Picture Me carrying and helping you as you address challenges, knowing you don’t have to brace yourself to handle it all alone. Your smallness and dependence on Me does not equate with insignificance. Cling to Me, child, the One who loves you completely.

Oh, my anxious one! How I long to scoop you up into My arms like a little lamb, shaking in the dark and cold world. I am your protector and healer. The Light of day is coming soon and will shed new perspective for you. You can trust Me and My plans for Good things to come. I will not let you down. In fact, I’ll keep holding you tightly until you feel confident and reassure again. Stay with Me as long as it takes to settle you down before stepping into the day. I will be with you wherever you go, and continue carrying you as long as you need Me to.

You can trust Me. I never have back-handed motives or actions. I am a loving God who only operates in safe, kind, and caring ways. No matter who has treated you poorly in the past or how you’ve been hurt, I’m not like that. Picture Me standing by your side if memories of those encounters are clouding your mind. Rewrite that scenario by envisioning Me shielding you with a protective arm, ushering you away from the harm. Turn to Me and cling to the folds of My garments, for I am with you. Ask for My help to heal old wounds and release their grip on you. I am by your side, wishing you wellness and peace.

Despite the ebbs and tides of your emotions, I am the Constant in your life. Look to Me for safety, shelter, and calming. If a wave of anxiety or hurt comes over you, remember that the tide will surely pull it back out to sea again, – away from you. It will not stay in place for long. Look for what is left for you to appreciate and observe in the tide pools. See new discoveries about yourself that hold true even after the worries of life recede. You’ll find playfulness, color, and new life darting about with joyful surprises in store.

You are bright and beautiful. Your busy head spins with bright thoughts and dark ones intermingled, and hardly a quiet moment. Today, if you notice the cogs on that wheel working double-time, try shutting off the power and allow yourself to be still. Yes, – be still, and know that I am God. I love you just as you are. There’s no need to prove yourself through performance. Be still, and be reassured that all is well for everything beyond your control. I am working to relieve you and protect you from harm. I am trustworthy. Take heart in the stillness as you refocus and are revived.

I know you and I long for your safety and protection. I am not sending you to the wolves and will not allow you to be put in harm’s way. I will be watching for potential danger, taking your hand and guiding you on the right path. You are a grown person, full of competence and the ability to use good judgment. I trust that in you, and have entrusted a set of gifts which are needed in this fractured world. Others look to you for the same comfort and guidance I provide to you. You can handle it, for I give you nothing greater than what I equip you to do. My yoke is easier than you worry about.

Like the flickering light of a candle, My Spirit is moving in you. I instill warmth and activity that is constantly at work, melting the effects of past hardships away. I give off Light with a pleasing aroma while dancing freely. Open yourself to what I need to melt down: old habits of worry, former offenses and hurts, rigid ways you’ve used to self-protect. Let Me soften them and burn away anything that gets in the way of My Light trying to shine through you. Come closer to the flame, excited about how I am reshaping you from the inside out.
“Hang in there” seems like a flippant statement when others try using it to console someone during hard times. Instead, hear Me saying, “Hang ON there”. Hold My hand in your most worrisome state of mind. Cling to Me in the difficult experiences you are going through. Run to Me for reassurance and safety, seeing that I hold you tightly, without letting go. Hang onto Me, for I will steer you through, navigating the rough patches and providing shelter and refuge in the storms.
Being a ‘good human’ requires intentional effort. Choose to be fair, kind, and just today. Treat yourself and others with respect and dignity. “Take the high road”. You’ll find Me giving you a hand along the way, with guard rails in front of the risky places you could otherwise fall into if you’re not careful. Let Me be your Guide and Protector. I won’t let you fall.
