I know your heart and its ways – how you long for time alone and rest. I see how you push yourself to accomplish many things as you interact with others daily. I have plans in store that account for your abilities as well as for your needs. Seek balance between giving of your time and finding rest. The ebb and tide of life’s demands requires that you take time to replenish. It’s important to make time to observe and gear up as well as to extend yourself. Like tidal waves that reach the shore then retreat for a while, only to roll back again later, I will give you enough energy to accomplish each task for My purposes. I will shed light on what to pursue in your heart, and will also supply rest and refreshment. Step slowly, watching for My hand in your day’s plans. Feel the Spirit’s flow of extending, reaching, and then retreating. Rest in My perpetual call to love and to rest.

You know when you’ve overdone it. Excessive activity and busy-ness leaves you stressed, fatigued, and crabby. Indulge in some R & R and consider this a Godly move. Choosing to invest in down time for rest will lead to better balance to build up your emotional and spiritual reserves. I need you to be well-balanced, not strung out on overdrive. Honor Me by honoring My design of what brings you joy and peace. Hear My call to give you rest and pleasurable activities These are part of My plan for you, too.

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.

I am teaching you to slow down and rest. You pound your life so hard with work and physical demands, all of which take a toll on you over time. Come to Me and you’ll find rest. Put your feet up. DO LESS. I know that may seem counterintuitive when there are so many obvious needs all around you, but I don’t want to create broken warriors. Instead, I want refreshed helpers. I need people who slow their pace enough to truly listen to others. I will supply all of your energy needed for this day. Concentrate on My call bringing you to the well.

You are bone-tired; I can see that. I also see your willing Spirit calling you to move on, one step at a time. I am with you, shouldering your burdens and assisting with the journey when it feels too tough or exhausting. Close your eyes and rest with Me for a moment. Let Me replenish your energy and refresh your perspective. Learn to trust My constant Companionship and My design for your life. Practice knowing that each day is designed with certain interactions and outcomes beyond your mortal vision. If your aim is to complete My work, you will find peace and satisfaction in knowing and trusting that all is well, and ‘enough’ is truly enough.

You don’t have to ‘do more’ to be loved. Wait here and listen to Me. You are deeply loved, right here and right now. Just breathe. Calm the busy thoughts distracting you and stressing you out. Sit here with Me for as long as it takes to settle down inside. I am here, and I am already fully pleased with you. There’s no need to be worried about impressing Me or others. I’d rather have your attentive companionship than 1,000 things accomplished. It’s okay to pause throughout your day, doing a bit less and just sitting, being appreciative as you connect to Me. Find joy resurfacing as you practice being aware of My Presence and finding balance between work, rest, and play.

Come along for the ride with Me today. You don’t have to have it all mapped out on your own. I may take you new places or I may opt for a few stops along the way. Just try resting and breathing, allowing the experiences that come before you to unfold. You don’t have to feel flustered or overwhelmed because I’m the Driver and I know where we are going, – together. Breathe, My loved one. Trust in My ultimate care for you.
Allow Me to calm you. Take these peaceful, quiet moments when you can get them and appreciate how I call you to rest. Sometimes what you need most is to stop and be silent. Listen to small things – clocks ticking, birds calling, washing machine humming, – whatever is going on. Just take notice and appreciate how calming this can be. Then, remind yourself of one of my most important phrases: “Be still, and know that I am God.” I am YOUR God, lovingly present and bringing good out of every circumstance. As you breathe in this truth, exhale doubt and fear.
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.
I know your heart is aching. You want connection, and I hear you longing to do what is “right” but worrying that you’re missing the mark. Let Me take care of you today. Attend to the things you need to do, but don’t get mistakenly weighed down by thinking it’s all up to you. Picture Me bearing the brunt of the decision-making and choices. Rest in My capable hands taking charge as you follow alongside Me. Think of it as going along for the ride with Me as your guide and chauffeur. I’ve got the destination and stops along the way already mapped out. Be at ease.
