Give Others the Chance to Step Up

I have good plans in store. I am a trustworthy God with a greater design at work than what might be visible to your mind’s eye. I’ll help you step back when it’s time to listen and not respond. Watch as I orchestrate giving others the chance to step up to the plate. See how it’s not all up to you. I can take care of you in ways such as this when you relinquish your frantic attempts to be in control. Things don’t always have to go your way to be good. Sometimes a change in plans works out better. You are safe in My arms; trust Me to be there at all times.

Called to Be Still

I call you to be still so that you can know Me better. When you are still, you can focus better and find the peace I offer you continually. In the stillness, I can attend to you differently, – providing reassurance that I am with you right here and right now, that you are enough, and that you’ll have what it takes to get through the day. Come, sit by Me and absorb the calming effect of My loving Presence. Stay here awhile, basking in the quiet peace and pool of Grace I have for you.

Things Can, Do, and Will Work Out

You fret about a lot of unnecessary things, picturing the worst-case scenario and bracing anxiously for the unknown.  I call you to address this habit and intentionally change your thought process. When you catch yourself building worries, – STOP. Remind yourself that I am a loving God who is taking care of you and has Good plans in store. Remind yourself you are loved, loving, and capable, and then say, “I trust you Lord. Things will work out in the end. They have before and they will again, because you are caring for Me and my situation.” Things can, do, and will work out. Choose to believe, and allow yourself to live life with greater ease and happiness.

It’s OK to Like Yourself

It’s A-OK to actually like yourself! So many weary and anxiety-ridden hours have been ill-spent on self-reproach. The life I long for you to experience is one where you confidently see yourself as endearing, capable, and worthy of positive attention as well as loving support. How I wish you would embrace this new lifestyle – entering each day with calm and ease because you can trust you are supposed to have good things happen in your life. Picture it, then hear Me affirming that this is the true life I’ve called you to live.

Take In Peace and Ease

Take it all in! I freely give you the sights, sounds, colors, and scents in this garden of delight. Practice slowing down and noticing things. Most importantly, take in the sense of peace and ease I offer if you stop long enough to receive. Learn to take rest breaks more often, acknowledging My call for you to be present in the moment with Me like this. Things will get done in due time. Time with Me is always time well-spent.

Share the Load

I am trying to perk up your spirit. I don’t want you walking around all stooped over by the weight of the world. Choose intentionally to share that load with Me so that you can walk with ease more. That sounds simple, but may take extra effort on your part to change old habits of hyper-responsibility. Ask for My help to recognize when you are assuming more oversight and control than is needed or required of you. Learning to share the load will do you good.

Abundance and Ease

Instead of frowning at your day ahead with its multitude of tasks or minor irritations, pause to focus on Me first. Absorb My Love-Light, beckoning you to recognize the abundance and ease I offer to you daily. You will have plenty of what is needed to accomplish those tasks. You are already equipped, and My supply is abundant today. As you breathe in My reassurance, everything ahead will feel lighter and more doable. I offer you peace with an ever-ready supply when you move with Me at My pace intended for you.

Soften Up

Take time to relax and remember that I have you in the palm of My hands. Cling to Me as I work on washing away old hurts, making you impervious to them over time. I’m not One to ask you to “toughen up”. Rather, I want you to soften up on yourself. As you learn to cut yourself some slack, you will find it easier to accept others are they are, as well. You won’t be as susceptible to the sting of off-handed remarks that tend to hurt or offend you. There’s no need to feel defensive when your confidence and assurance lies with Me.

Irritable Moments

I am with you every step of the way. I don’t call you to be perfect. You will have minor irritations in this world, which don’t make you a bad person. In these irritable moments, just pause and inhale deeply. Hear Me acknowledging, “I hear you. I know you. I get it.” Remember that this, too, shall pass. Perhaps through this internal dialogue with Me, the mere act of having Me validate your experience will be the calming effect you need to endure this short-term storm. Turn to Me to live with ease like that.

Your Busy Head

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.
