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.

I still have big plans in store for you and for the world. I know you’ve doubted that lately, feeling complacent, discouraged, and lacking in motivation toward your part in the change. Try viewing this down time as a platform for recuperating and gaining new perspective. Ready yourself for things unknown and full of exciting promise. You can be at peace in the present, but don’t forget about including hope for the future in what you picture ahead. I’ll light the way.

I am in this day, already with you. Toss anxiety aside. Enjoy the peace of mind I give to you when you exercise trust in My companionship. Life is easier once you recognize what a with-God life means. I equip, love, heal and forgive. I renew you. I call to you constantly with reassurance and invitation. Come to Me! Receive my gift of Peace, even the middle of troubling times.
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.
My face really does shine upon you. Stop doubting that. If only you could see how much you truly radiate! Perhaps then you could ease up on the self-reproach. Your view of yourself gets so distorted. Small past errors or unhealthy choices get blown way out of proportion. With My help, learn to shrug off the negative self-talk. If you need to make amends, do so now and get it over with. There’s no need to live weighed down by exaggerated thoughts or past mistakes. Let’s move on, My beloved, basking in Light.
Don’t worry so much about the illness, fatigue, or aches of your body today. I am aware of them, and of your every need. These are not “dry bones”. I fill the marrow of your body with an intention that LIFE occurs. I give you life and breath for purposes that you may not yet see. For now, be grateful for your body, even with its flaws, aches, and pains. Move about your day reassured of My help with an ease that says, “I am capable, calm, and strong enough to handle all that comes my way.” Some days will be light and easy; others make you turn to Me for help bearing and enduring the strain. I will not let you down. Compassionately, I’ll be with you every step, working to mend and heal mind, body, and soul.
You will have the strength for what you need to do, but don’t neglect your need for rest, also. Down time is just as important as accomplishing tasks. Don’t overwork yourself. So many times I watch you striving so hard for goals which I have not set for you. I design your days with bits and pieces of a much bigger picture. Although you cannot envision that as fully as I do, I simply ask you to listen to My call and trust My guidance along the way. I will not push more upon you than you can reasonably carry. Examine your plans to see what is designed by Me vs. what is designed by the world. Reduce or eliminate tasks that bury you with needless stress, worry, or anxiety. I don’t want to exhaust your reserves. Trust that I will help you carry that which is truly important, then rest accordingly when the day is done.
