When You Feel Discouraged

It’s okay to not be happy all the time. On those days when you feel sad or discouraged, treat yourself extra gently, – just as I would. Attend to your needs like you would a sick child: encouraging rest, offering something cool to drink, tenderly stroking their head and praying for them to get better. Lean into hope that things are on the mend and lighter, easier days are ahead. In fact, cling to this hope as your lifeline of truth, because I am here.

Dealing With Pain

You’re going through a rough time right now. Dealing with pain for the long haul can feel unbearable at times. Maybe it’s a sign you are trying to figure things out on your own instead of involving Me. I never meant for you to handle difficulties all by yourself. Truthfully, I am just as weighed down by your pain as you are. Turn to Me. Weep with Me. Ask for My assistance. I’m not withholding help from you; I’m actually sending Grace-filled moments to carry you through this hard time. Look today for glimpses of My ultimate loving care and concern, and hold tight to this truth so as to not let discouragement get the best of you.

Your Vulnerable Self

I delight in your vulnerable self, because it is in your vulnerability that I can be drawn ever so close to you. I offer Light-filled moments for you to rest your head upon as I fill the room around you with peace. Let Me cover you in soft blankets of comfort and compassion. I share in your sorrow, yet I want you to see My Joy ahead. I still have much Goodness in store for you. Allow others to care for you in your time of sorrow. Don’t be afraid to show your sadness. I need you to demonstrate how to grieve just as much as how to have strength in faith.
