A Different Side of You

I know you and your deepest thoughts and concerns. I see a different side of you. Where you see cynicism, I see hope. Where you catch negativity, I see a glimpse of possibility. You are not all “bad” and dark; actually, the opposite is true. You are full of Light and Goodness. Others are drawn to you because of it. This is the truth. The critical voice inside tries to block this holy perspective, but you can reject its influence. Be bold with your God-given confidence today, relying on your inherent Goodness. Your Light is needed in the world.

Smoothing the Fears and Tension

Let Me help you quiet yourself, as completely as you can. Do not invest your thought time in needless worries. Come to Me. Be still before Me and know that I am God. Recognize Who you are sitting with! I am the Almighty Creator of all things! All-powerful, all-loving, capable of greatness. But I do not Lord this OVER you. Rather, I call you into My loving arms, wanting to embrace you fully and tenderly, smoothing the fears and tension you experience and sorting out the difficulties you face. The good news here is that I am at work in your life. Seek to trust Me with all things. Prepare yourself to step in the direction I point you for your life’s purpose. I love when you sit with Me like this, quietly resting in My Presence and readying yourself for the plan. Thank you for giving yourself to Me during this time.

When Troubles Come Crashing In

Sometimes troubles come crashing in. When they do, there is still a way to be at peace: hand it all over to Me. Let Me survey the situation and help pick up the broken pieces. I will help determine which parts to discard, which ones to repair, and which ones to re-purpose. I love to repurpose broken and displaced things. I am with you in all things! So go in peace, where you can be confident and at one with Me and with the world around you.

To Be Truly Loved and Accepted

I am yours; you are Mine. Repeat that to yourself and let it sink deep inside beyond your worries, underneath your stress, and into your very soul. Unravel the doubts, the lament, the self-degradation by using this utter truth. As you settle into knowing that you are Mine, let it permeate your whole being until you find peace. Absorb what it is to be truly loved and accepted. Allow this truth to prepare you for the day ahead, knowing that all else is relatively insignificant. You cannot earn My love, nor can anyone else take it away. Be confident in My ultimate plan for you, and rest in my reassurance.

Perhaps it is Time to Take a Rest

My glory is sometimes a mystery which I unfold in tiny glimpses along the way because it is too brilliant to behold all at once. Train yourself to step forward in patient trust, day by day. I will not give you too much to handle without equipping you. Your life should not involve more than you can bear; I don’t work that way. If you are feeling overburdened, perhaps it is simply time to take a rest. Self-care is just as essential as tending to others. Do not neglect the care of your vessel.

Take Breaks From Thinking Too Much

Be wary of things that fill your mind with needless worry. Instead, take intentional breaks from thinking too much. Get up, soak in the views I place in your presence. Notice the beauty, the stillness, and color or sounds. Focus on whatever seems to catch your eye, and acknowledge My companionship in whatever you experience. Remind yourself that you are Mine. In momentary breaks like this I will bless you with the peace of mind you crave.

Trying to Be So On Top of Things

There will be time enough for everything. You get so tangled up in worries that you’ll forget an important detail, trying to be so on top of things all the time. Its exhausting watching you strive this way, often mistaking your regimens as being what I ask of you. I call for BALANCE. Rest is part of that balance. You don’t have to fear not being ‘productive’ all the time. Come play with Me and take time to attend to all the facets of yourself. It all fits into My grand plan for you. Find me as you rediscover what you love and unearth treasures you forgot you had all along.

Your Weariness Needs Attention

Why do you berate yourself so much? Nothing you have done will make Me turn My back on you. Breathe in My light by closing your eyes and becoming aware of My constant, loving companionship. I cherish you! Your weariness needs to be attended to. Find rest and store up trust for the days ahead. As you become more practiced in the art of releasing concerns and worries to Me, you will find I attend to each item and this allows you to rest even more deeply and thoroughly. Both rest and action must be honored for your spiritual growth.

Rest for Your Body, Soul and Mind

You require more rest and balance. For some people this comes naturally and easily, but others like you have to work hard to establish boundaries and carve out time for rest. It may mean setting boundaries with others or boundaries against your relentless self that is so driven to accomplishment and perfection. Ask Me what is most needed today, and acknowledge the places you are vulnerable. I am not a harsh task-master driving you until you are weary in your bones. Don’t let exhaustion overcome you. Find rest for your body, soul and mind with My help. Remember that My first call invites you to peace.

Be Strengthened to Manage

Take care of yourself, including tending to your need for food, exercise, and rest. Build in time for conversations with Me daily as part of that self-care, too, because I want to build up your spiritual self, as well. I cannot implement the big plans I have in store for you until you can be strengthened to manage all that will be involved. There are many demands on your time. Gently I call you to be reminded that My well does not run dry. You can dip your ladle in these life-giving waters of Grace as many times as is needed to quench your parched body. As you extend yourself and thirst for more water, I will replenish and recharge your body and spirit. You will be ready for a multitude of tasks requiring your energy and concentration if you come to the well frequently.
