When People Are Draining You

You know how to show love, but other’s don’t always get it. I see you working hard to maintain connections in relationships that are bruised. Sometimes it’s okay to pull back temporarily and stay out of situations when people are draining you. Come to Me for replenishment. I will calm your frazzled nerves and soothe your aching heart. I will show you the way to love again. With My help and Grace you will be able to rise above past offenses and be forgiving and accepting of others even when they “don’t get it”. I do. I see your Good intentions and will bless your path because of it.

Speak With Me

Being with Me is not as hard, strange, or distant as you think. All it takes is a quieting in your thoughts to realize I am already there, – listening, loving, and guiding. I want My Presence known in the world. I want you to speak with Me intimately. The benefits of this are huge, accomplishing My works and also restoring and renewing your Spirit. Without Me you can become dried up, drained, and agitated. I desire life flourishing within you, a wellspring of joy. Be cognizant of My Presence in and all around you inviting conversation between us. I am here!

See Yourself As I See You

I have so much affection and love for you! You shine in ways that bring Me delight. I wish you could see yourself as I see you; how differently you would walk, carrying yourself with ease, lightness, and confidence in each step. Oh how it would change you to not be so worried about what others are thinking about you. They are drawn in with joy and an eagerness to be in your presence when you emanate Our united Love-Light. This is attainable just by choosing to accept My love for you and living by it with integrity and belief.

Allow Space for Things to be Messy

Remember that your “best” is good enough. You don’t have to strive for perfection or aim to tie up all the loose ends today. One day, one piece at a time. Allow space for some things to be messy, cluttered, and piled up. You were never designed to take care of everything all at once. Find your joy again in sitting with Me next to your piles. It’s okay. We will make our way through.

Look In Another Direction

What are you choking on? Technology, words, unhealthy habits, worries? Take a drink from My well and let it wash over these things. Let Me take precedence in your thoughts. Turn away from these distractions as often as you can, aiming your sights on Me instead. There is so much offered in the world that fills you with discomfort. I call you to look in another direction. I teach joy and healing through learning the art of being still. Work toward simplifying life around you, eliminating excess activity and stimulation. Calm your soul by striving for a With-God life like this. In this very moment you can find Peace and connection to Me. Notice how My Light is all around you.

Receive

You don’t need to feel guilty or undeserving when I lavish good things on you. Receive. Enjoy. Appreciate. Take nothing for granted. My will for you includes kindnesses bestowed upon you to nurture your Spirit. Life doesn’t always have to be hard. Greet this day looking forward to what I have in store for you, and let your heart be light as you anticipate great things!

Move On

Learn the art of moving on. I’ve watched you mulling things over to the point of exhaustion, thinking “If only I had done this or that”. These past hurts, injustices, and annoyances bubble to the surface and distract you from the beauty of the present. Instead of ruminating about past conversations and experiences, try releasing them to My attentive care. Take what has been troubling you and leave that baggage on My holy doorstep. Breathe in the peace I offer you in exchange. I can take care of it. Move on as an act of trust, freed from that burdened load. Behold! I am doing something new.

Replenishment

I don’t call you to a life that is HARDER. The slowing of your pace or productivity, if done for My Purposes, is totally acceptable. There are times requiring much of your focus and energy, but I am also a God of replenishment. The world’s standards and demands can pull you in many directions, yet I call you to simplify. Ask for My Guidance as you discern when to move and when to rest; when to interact and when to be still. In all things, know that I am God.

Be the Personable You I Created

Yield to My beautiful design for you, full of love and tremendous purpose. You are a good person, so stop questioning that. Smart, thoughtful, capable, loving, – and oh-so-sensitive. I see you trying very hard to make life special and supportive to others. You care, deeply. You, My dear, make a positive difference in the world. Get back on track believing this. Don’t let self-doubt shake this foundational truth about you. Go, – be with others and picture yourself comfortable in these shoes of sociability. Be the personable you I created. Remember who formed you!

Let Me Help You With That

I am a God who loves you. The world has messed you up a bit. I don’t control that part because I allow you and others to make your own choices. Choosing to love and forgive is hard on your own. Let Me help you with that. I also ask you to love yourself, which may involve self-forgiveness and recognition of your true value and likability. I can’t control what you tell yourself daily, but it breaks My heart when you despise or chastise your inner self. Ask for My help to be kind, loving, and forgiving instead – especially to yourself first. This will spill onto your interactions with others.
