Your calling and sense of purpose may be hard for you to recognize when what you are doing comes so naturally to you. It might not always stand out to you, but I need you right where you are, attending well to others in your circle of influence. No more than that is needed for now. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking what you do or who you are is ‘no big deal’. You, – your life, interests, and interactions, – matter to Me. Nothing goes unnoticed. Even your emotions are of great value. None of it is insignificant. Stand tall, owning up to the big deal I created you to be.

I know you sometimes question your purpose and value. It’s there, though – woven inside your heart by My Spirit, which is living in you. It might be even harder for you to see in yourself, but others recognize and are comforted by you. Today, try trusting that what you contribute is enough. You don’t have to demonstrate exceptional things in order to be valued. What if I told you just sitting there, being present to Me, is enough? Follow My lead on this today, practicing being comfortable in your own skin without “works”. Be My tangible light in the world, brightening the experience of others you encounter. Take joy in this simple kind of loving attentiveness.

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.

You have true purpose in this world. I am navigating the boat through murky waters for you. Stay on board and see where all of this leads. I’m taking you to new places, but you need not be anxious. Release your tendency to try and map everything out. Take the ride one day at a time, trusting that your future is safely in My hands.
All living things have the capacity for Me to work in and through them. Knowing this truth, how can you view your interactions with others differently today? Will you show more interest? Would you be more eager to listen than to expound your own opinions? Will you step into leadership roles, bravely trusting that I’ve equipped you? Go now in peace and enthusiasm to hear and be with Me. Walk with humble confidence, trusting that My Light is in you. You are destined for purposeful use in a world that is hungry for Me.
You think you have many tasks on your calendar today, but look at it from this perspective: your only job is to love. In every call you receive and every interaction you have, your business is simply to show love. That may require you to listen a little longer to those who appear annoying or trivial initially. Lend an attentive ear with kindness. It may require reaching out when you know it will cause an investment of time that you’d rather be spending elsewhere. If you take My business of loving to the streets of your city, My kingdom can be built one encounter at a time. Take the excess worry, anxiety, and frustration off your plate and pile it at My feet. I’ll make room for what is most needed today.
Do you know how much you are needed in the world? Do you recognize how others look to you for affirmation and encouragement? Do you see how I am at work not just in and for you, but also through you? Therein lies the truth. You are oh-so-valuable. You belong. You fit in and have a place and a purpose like no other. So much of your anxiety stems from doubting this. Ask My Spirit to help wash away the needs and fears so you can interact from a place of peaceful confidence today. Watch as Goodness unfolds naturally when you trust in being My creation with a purpose that suits you perfectly.
Start with this: be still. Be still and know. Know simplicity. Trust the plain and simple truth that you are LOVED, – truly loved! I am Good, and I am in you. Now, go and love others. Don’t make your day harder than it needs to be. Love yourself, love others. Lead by listening and being kind. Share. This is all good, simple, doable stuff. It doesn’t have to take anything extraordinary. Let Me do the heavy lifting today. Together we will carry out meaningful plans.
You may not quite be ready for bigger steps yet. I know you want to rush ahead to My glorious plans for you, but sometimes I pull in the reins so you can attend to smaller things first. My way is grand, with a cumulative effect on the ultimate design. Continue your practice of listening to Me daily. While taking in only 24-hour doses of time, I will place opportunities, conversations, and dreams within your reach when it is My timing to do so. Be attentive to what this day calls for, and simply that alone will be sufficient. There’s no need to rush. You will see it all come together throughout your lifespan. For now, tend My sheep.
I am at work in your life, healing and evolving your body and mind. I have to move slowly, though, allowing you the time needed for building your confidence in and through Me. It’s not that I’m not capable of accomplishing things more quickly. Even though I am omnipotent, it’s you who sets the pace for our relationship. Once you practice trust and learn to release your cares to Me daily, you’ll see how quickly and constantly I am at work. Be mindful of allowing it to be My work that happens. Be open to how I want to utilize your life to accomplish My divine purposes. Abide in Me as I abide in you.
