Soothe Frazzled Nerves

Take your time today. Move slower, – ‘mindfully’, as some call it. Try emptying your mind of all those to-dos and just be a listener and observer in the moment. See how much this soothes frazzled nerves and replenishes your reserves for the day ahead. Take in the quiet, trusting Me with how the day will play out. You don’t have to have it all mapped out. Take it easier today, leaning into trust of My design.

Sit Still

It’s a gift to truly sit still, absorbing sights and sounds in the present moment. You can allow memories to surface, or thoughts and imagined scenarios for future events to rise and be acknowledged, but try to return to awareness of the present. Now, picture Me sitting with you, – noticing the same things that catch your attention. Smile at our connectedness that occurs without words. I am oh-so-familiar with your every thought and reaction. Tenderly, turn your gaze to Me, sensing My all-consuming love for you. Push busy-ness aside and see what joy I can stir up for you as you spend time with Me like this. Let Me re-energize you by restoring balance and rest in your life.

You Don’t Have To Be In Charge Of Everything

Cozy up to Me for a moment before you begin your day. As you take time with Me, I can remind you that you don’t have to be in charge of everything. That includes letting Me take care of the outcomes. Stop trying to figure everything out ahead of its time. Release your fearful grip on “what might happen” and instead tell yourself, “I am in Good hands”. Allow Me to quiet your soul and soothe you as you breathe in trust and exhale doubt. Your only concern should be lovingly attending to yourself and others as I lead you down today’s path. Take it easier than usual. Let Me bless you with ease.

Silence is Golden

You’ve heard the term “silence is golden”. Well, it is! A quieting of thoughts can be accomplished almost anywhere. Even with background noise, you can find an inner silence and solitude. It is here that I speak most clearly and may surprise you with insights, encouragement, and direction. Your silent presence with Me is just as necessary as water and bread for your life. I long to be in this intimate communion with you, showing you the way and the plans I have in store for you. Seek out times of silence with Me to hear best.

Do Not Disturb

I continue to call you to the quiet. As you practice releasing those spinning thoughts and finding a place of calm beside Me, My peace can nestle in. Sit with Me. It’s as simple as that. Stay with Me a while, right here with nothing in particular to do. It is here that I can refresh your mind and provide a new perspective. My ways are meant to be simple like that. Put a “do not disturb” sign up mentally in your head, intentionally choosing to hold onto this peaceful mindset I offer you daily, hourly, – right here and right now. I am yours.

Trying to Measure Up is Exhausting

Truly, I urge you to take the pressure off. Subtly and pervasively, you have been ingrained to be constantly doing, ‘performing’, accomplishing, and ‘succeeding’. It must be exhausting, always trying to measure up to self-imposed standards of perfection. My expectations are radically different. Certainly I appreciate your effort, drive, and skills; but I also appreciate quiet time spent with Me, without agendas. Practice a spiritual aim of being present in the moment, and perhaps less time-oriented. Just “be”, and see the benefit of My peace descending as a result.

I Pour Out Reassurance

Stop all the “doing” for a minute and quiet your thoughts. Allow a hush to settle around you. Release your surface thoughts to Me and then, eventually, your deepest cares. This is not “magical thinking”; it’s allowing Your Creator, – who knows you more intimately than anyone else on earth,- to gently relieve you of your burdens. I pour out reassurance and guidance for you. Knowing you, I understand your needs with more clarity than even you yourself can perceive. Abide in Me today, trusting My power to heal your life. Follow in line with what I value for you by being selective with your thoughts and how you choose to expend your energy. 

Called To The Quiet

I call you to the quiet. Sit still; hear and absorb tiny sounds all around you. Empty your head of its constant throng of thoughts. Take in the quiet, intended for you. Rest like this allows you to hear Me. I am yours. Hand over all your stress to Me. Pay attention to your body with all its fatigue, pain, and tension. I want to mend the broken parts of your Spirit. The parts that are distrusting, cynical, anxious, sad. In the quiet I wash My Grace all over you, finding its way into each crevice or dark surface. Be filled and covered in Light. Know that I have not abandoned you, – ever! I am aware of your suffering. While your painful experiences may not always disappear, know that I am with you and I am at work to make Good arise out of difficulty. 

Releasing Temporary Discomforts

The world measures by temporal things: comforts, wants, and concerns, – things that fade or do not sustain you. Find contentment right where you are, with no more and no less than you need. Practice releasing temporary discomforts, thoughts, or worries and needs into My capable hands, right in this moment. Sit quietly, absorbing My Presence as the most real want and solid satisfaction. I supply all things in due time. This day matters and your wishes matter to Me. My purpose for you, when we are in harmony, is doable and satisfying. Be fulfilled and content, working in sync with Me today and trusting that I hear your heart’s desires. I know what is best for you. Even as you mourn and groan, know that I stand by your side, fully attentive to you. All things in due time, My love. I am here.

Use Your Heart Instead of Words

Allow the draw of our relationship to keep you seated with Me long enough to gain your fill of truth and direction. I ask you to hold your tongue today and practice the art of listening before speaking. Observe those who are hurting and silently, secretly, offer them up to My healing hands. Take the pressure off of yourself trying to come up with the right words. Instead, stay true to the heart behind the tongue. Try this simple technique and see how My Love -Light grows through quietly attentive interactions. Be My Light on the world using your heart instead of your words.
