Equipped

I equip you. I, in all My might and majesty, have called you to these places. See what wondrous things are being done! You make people feel special and I need your presence doing what comes naturally to you. You can trust that I am using your gifts right where you are. Pray. Come to Me when you feel anxious; see that I don’t judge you nearly as hard as you judge yourself. I accept and love you for who you are. 

My Good

You are faithful and talented, – so talented!, – but you are only one person. Serve for Me and for My Good. My Good is when you touch the lives of others, – sometimes in a passing hello, other times in more attentive conversations or  complicated activities. My Good abounds everywhere! Take a portion of it in today because I give My Good for you, too. I’m not a demanding God who only asks you to serve, serve, serve. Today you can receive, too. In fact, any day you can receive; this isn’t selfish. Insulate yourself against worry by taking time with Me daily and absorbing My gifts to you in the form of rest, quiet time, and help from others. I do not ask for your weariness. Fill your own well by first spending time with Me, receiving My Joy. Let it surprise you with how easy and satisfying it is to find once you recognize My Presence. 

You Belong

You belong. So often you question this, – filled with worry that you do not fit in or that you will always be an outsider. This is simply not true! I designed you with supreme value. Your worth cannot be measured by others reactions to you. I still call you to connect and be involved. Work on trusting that you are an essential part of every group or situation you encounter today. You belong exactly where I’ve placed you, and you are meant to be with those you interact with. Feel safe knowing My love for you never fails. Don’t judge yourself or others with such harshness. Relax and be yourself. It’s OK! I’m right there with you, always. 

Collective Goodness

Allow yourself to rest. In the tasks ahead, you will be able to calm down and refocus. The previous day was good – exactly as I had planned. Trust that My hand was all over it, – and in YOU. Your Goodness was needed there, and I always equip you with enough to meet the need. This is what I call collective Goodness: with others contributing so well while you also do you part and they do theirs. See how it all comes together unto My Good. I wish you would trust your positive role here rather than ruminating in worry. I know that you know it is there; the secret is to trust in this truth and in My design. Breathe this in: I am with you and in you. It is enough. 

Big Things

I have so much in store for you – it makes Me burst at the seams with Light and Purpose. Such joy is in store! Your heart for Me combined with My will for you is accomplishing great things already, – but there is more to come. Can you feel the excitement stirred within you? Do you believe in My potential waiting to come to life in you? Live with an inner confidence that is unshakable. Actualize My glorious plans for you one day at a time. Be open to possibility, and envision big things happening. I am a Grand and Glorious God, capable of all things. Believe in Me and believe in yourself. 

I’ll Help You Focus

I am near…always by your side. Close your eyes and take a big breath to calm down. Listen for My reassurance and know you are loved. You are perfect in My eyes, even with the imperfections and quirks I designed in you. You have no idea the way others are drawn to you and are eager to listen to what you have to say. Don’t silence your voice in misguided shyness when I call you to speak. Listen well, also, in your day ahead. Breathe again, asking for My help to clear your head so you can interpret what is going on around you. I’ll help you focus on next steps, one task and one conversation at a time. Believe in the importance of your work at hand. Trust that nothing is too trivial to be part of My plan. Know that you are an intentional part of My design. 

Joy Beyond Appearances

I desire blessings in your life, not distress all the time. Don’t be so upset and worked up by these trials, for in it all is an opportunity for joy beyond appearances. You are bringing My Joy to this place – do not lose sight of this! Powerful things are arising – do not lose faith! I am. I will be with you always. Grasp My right hand. I will fill you with My Light and My Goodness. You are My faithful servant. 

Attending To Your Needs

Let the rain of Grace wash away your hurt and unhappiness. I will supply comforts to carry you along the way, too. Your life doesn’t have to be just about serving others. Don’t forget about attending to yourself; self-care is also essential.  It’s important to soak up My peace intended for you, and refresh your soul. With My hand upon you, all can be made right. Let Me be a healing agent, attending to your needs. My Goodness rooted and established in you is meant to be well tended, and only then can it result in being My gift to all around you. 

Comfort

You can find comfort in Me. Let Me help stop the racing thoughts of details to finalize, or of worries about what impression you made. I will teach you to encourage yourself. Turn inward for a change. Take comfort and strength deep within as provided by Me to help you find the truth: I am your God and I am right here! I am in charge, leading you to a very important place. You have what it takes, and I will always equip you, remaining housed within your Spirit. Be comforted, comforting, and comfortable as you rest in the folds of My cloth. 

My Instrument

Taking one day, one hour, one project at a time will help you keep calm. I have the design, and you are My instrument. I will play you, beautifully, in accordance with My rhythm. You can rest easily knowing I am in charge, not you.  You don’t have to take things personally. Calm yourself through being one with Me, weaving in and around others spreading Joy and sensitivity. Make real connections. Know you are Good, and exactly where I need you to be. My design is at work, intricately, piece by piece.  I do this because I love you! ALL of you: your needs as well as your talents.  Take My Right Hand; – I will not let you fall.
