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.
Concentrate on the word “settle” today. Settle in and strive to be comfortable with where you are at and what is going on in your life, because I have you exactly where you are needed for now. Even when the world around is seems to be in chaos, I can help you settle down. Ask for My help to get settled internally, resting with peace and confidence in My loving companionship. All is well, even if it isn’t as extraordinary as you’d prefer. Enjoy My calming Presence with you in whatever position I have placed you in today, trusting how I work and keeping faith in the greater Good to rise above all else.
Be off to a good start today, – relaxed and optimistic. Hold onto this frame of mind. You can live with a hopeful outlook because I have already deemed your life holy and beloved, with Good plans in store. Don’t let any little trip-hazards take away that hopeful view. We’re in this whole life together, so go enjoy the day with all My surprises in store beckoning you to rejoice and be glad in it.
You can stop worrying about what others are thinking of you. Picture what I think about you instead. I already like who you are, and I don’t want you getting caught up trying to measure your scope of influence. Get comfortable with “being” today: being present, open, relaxed, and self-confident even if you are not contributing to the conversation. You presence alone is part of the plan. Remember that I place you in each situation you find yourself in today. Concentrate on how you are needed and know that what I have in store for you is important and you are enough for the job.
I know you. I see you questioning your credibility and your ability to carry out My plan for you. I am your Creator, – the One who designed you to bring about good things in the world by My Grace. You don’t have to underestimate what you are capable of when you pair your willingness with My will. You can even face criticism without letting it slay you. I will strengthen you so that other’s negative comments don’t wear you down. Wish love upon the haters, and remember that love and Light dominate darkness, always. Don’t let others or self-doubt get you down. If God is for you, who can be against?
You know how to love. It comes instinctively because I am in you and you are in Me. Be mindful of that and attentive to ways I place opportunities before you to demonstrate love. Perhaps in a gesture of kindness or an act of service for another. Maybe as a listening ear or in a concerned question you pose sensitively to another’s worry or pain. You may even be called to make light in a situation using humor when laughing it off is the best reaction. Don’t get caught up by fear of failure here. You can’t go wrong when your intention is genuine. Love wins, always.
The world is full of vain pursuits of perfection. It’s so easy to be distracted by appearances and things other than My design or purpose for you. What catches the eye is not always what is essential to truly living well. Beware of eye-catchers that seek to become idols swaying you from healthier living and true pursuits. Look for My Guidance as I send genuine opportunities to satisfy your hunger for passion, recognition, and acceptance. Seek to hear My call to you at all times and look for opportunities to do what comes naturally to you. You don’t have to manufacture ways to be noticed in order to be pleasing in My sight.
